In addition to a love for health food, I also have great passion for travel. I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to explore new and unique places, where I visit different eateries, vendor partners and foodies like yourselves. While the destinations provide a whirlwind of culinary choices, the venues I also stop at throughout my journeys aren’t always glamorous – namely airports, shopping malls and hotels. These are some of the most commonly frequented food venues I find myself in and it’s not always easy to find a healthy option when I’m on the go in places like these.
However, I’ve come across some great healthy snacks that you can purchase, pack, prepare or pop into your mouth while still staying on track!
Here are some of my recent favorites:
For a healthy on-the-go breakfast:
GnuFoods Fiber Love bars can now be found in airport terminal kiosks, magazine stands and most markets. They come in a variety of flavors, they are packed with fiber to keep you full throughout the morning, and they won’t leave you crashing from a sugar high like most breakfast pastries found at popular coffee shops.
Kashi GoLean Crisp! Chocolate Peanut Bar: At 180 calories and chocked full of fiber, this bar is delicious, sweet, filling, and the perfect snack for an in-between meal bite, in-between flight filler or late-night dessert.
For a quick dinner:
Wendy’s Asian Cashew Chicken Salad: This fresh, green salad is topped with fire-roasted edamame, spicy roasted cashews (which come in a separate package so you can opt to omit them for a lower calorie meal), warm grilled chicken and Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Light Spicy Asian Chili Vinaigrette (which also comes separately packaged so you can choose the amount for calorie control). This salad is light, fresh and will only set you back around 380 calories.
The most important tip to remember when flying, traveling, commuting or just plain working hard – DRINK WATER! And lots of it! Staying hydrated is one of the best ways to stay healthy, stave off hunger and keep you fueled, no matter where you’re traveling!
