As always, planning ahead is key, especially when I travel. I try to make sure I have a ready supply of healthy choices available both for the trip itself and when I get there. The Jewish mother in me (AKA food focused), is always rearing its head in one way or another.
Here are some simple suggestions of easy take alongs that I often reach for to make sure we are well stocked for the trip.
Ezekiel bread or rice cakes sandwiches with almond or peanut butter
(Food prep hack: You can make Ezekiel bread sandwiches (untoasted) in advance and freeze them in individual ziploc baggies and let them defrost as needed. My clients and I keep these on hand for easy grab and go meals.)
veggie burgers with mini guacamole cups
hummus and vegetable crudite
mason jar salads in plastic containers
quinoa salad with chickpeas
roasted whole or hassle-backed sweet potatoes drizzled with tahini (a personal favorite!)
baggies of raw nuts
hardy fruits like apples, oranges, clementines, even wrapped firm grapes. (No squishy pears or bananas please!)
cut up vegetables like snap peas, celery and carrot sticks, cucumber and bell pepper slices, all packed in ziplock bags with paper towels so they stay fresh. I wash grape tomatoes and bring them in their original containers to keep them from getting squashed.
chia puddings (Make ahead and freeze.)
overnight oats (Make ahead and freeze.)
Please share your best healthy easy travel food ideas that I can pass on to others. Wishing you a fantastic 'staying on track' vacation!
