It’s almost that time of the year again, travel season! With the holidays quickly approaching, I want to make sure you’re equipped with the tools you need in order to maintain your healthy lifestyle AND enjoy yourself. Trust me, I know it can be easy to fall off the wagon for the holidays, but it’s super important to try and stay consistent with your eating and workout routine when you can, so you can indulge GUILT FREE! One quick tip to start your trip on the right foot, is maneuvering through your travel plans with ease! It can be really difficult to eat healthy on your travel days and in airports as they don’t always offer the healthiest options, so I wanted to share some great travel hacks that will keep you full and feeling good.
Honestly, traveling in general no matter how long or short the flight is exhausting. Being prepared is half the battle! Being prepared doesn’t mean just having your bags packed and ID in hand…being prepared means planning ahead so you can save time, money, and be stress free (kinda)! Packing healthy snacks from home will keep you on track during your travel days and will always be the better choice over airport chips and soda.
“I really regret being prepared.”- said no one ever. When it comes to traveling, I wanted to clear up a common question I get asked. TSA does, in fact, let ALMOST any solid foods on flights from my experience. They key here is to skip out on the foods that could be questionably liquid. I’ve heard of some friends getting items like nut butters confiscated, so may want to skip out on those types foods.
Now if you haven’t figured out my newest addiction to @WonderfulPistachios – you haven’t paid close enough attention 😉 When I went to Europe for two weeks, I definitely packed a few bags of the Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Roasted & Salted because not having to de-shell pistachios on a plane or car is a life saver and I love banking on them as a filling, delicious snack. #WonderfulPistachiosPartner #WonderfulNut
I always bring a reusable water bottle that I leave empty and refill at the airport. I also usually always pack some veggies in a silicone bag and some fresh fruit too.
Waiting until you get to the airport to buy snacks can mean limited options or if there are healthy food items, they’re usually pretty darn expensive at the airport! While buying a bottle of water is fine, skip the lines and save yourself the money with a refillable bottle.
