Travel days create the perfect opportunity for snacking. A mocha and scone before your flight, a salty snack on the plane and then before you know it – it’s lunch time! Road trips open up even more opportunities for regrettable snacking…rest stop vending machines, gas station quickie marts and of course the never ending string of fast food restaurants that line the highway.
This summer avoid unhealthy snacking by packing your own goodies. Try these:
- Dried or fresh fruit
- Unsalted nuts
- Health bars
- Cut veggies
- Low fat crackers or pretzels
Also remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day. It’s easy to become dehydrated while traveling, so always carry a water bottle with you.
