Healthy Travel Snacks

Out and about? Whether traveling by car or plane, our eating routines are often subject to whatever is available at the kiosk or drive-thru. Plan ahead and pack any of the following things to make sure you’re getting good nutrients while en route this year. 


Whole wheat wraps – these are easy to roll around anything or rip&dip; bonus points that they don’t leave crumbs!
Avocado – cut in half and sprinkle with salt and lime juice then consume with spoon; or scoop out into your whole wheat wrap.
Nut butter – great dip or spread for crackers, wraps, carrots, apples, etc.
Hummus – ditto the above
Roasted sweet potatoes – rich in fiber, sweet and savory, packed with energy, you can eat right out of the skins or wrap in parchment paper and foil with a pat of butter or coconut oil.


Pack any of the following in your carry-on luggage –

  • dried fruit
  • raw or roasted nuts
  • small servings of cheese, e.g. cheddar, gouda, brie
  • hummus
  • dark chocolate
  • granola bars
  • 3oz bottle of extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh lemons

And then pick up the remaining at the airport –

  • fresh fruit, e.g. apple, pear, banana
  • veggie sticks, e.g. carrot and celery sticks, broccoli and cauliflower florets
  • pretzels
  • pre-made salad


A couple other carry-on essentials:

  • large scarf/wrap
    • can double as a blanket on cold flights
    • grapefruit seed extract
      • a powerful immune booster and cold-fighter, you can put 10-15 drops in a glass of orange juice on the plane

Happy Travels!
