We know it can be hard to eat well when on the road–it takes some serious preparation and planning to see where to stop and eat when traveling. So we would like to give you some ideas as to quick snacks for travel that you can take with you on the go. If you have the time you can figure out ways to bring just about anything that you would make at home, but here are some quick and easy things that you can get at most health stores.
Fresh Fruit (bring whole or pieces in tupperware) – apples, pears, bananas, berries, grapes, mangoes, oranges, grapefruit, plums, apricots, durian, star fruit, passionfruit, papaya, etc, etc, etc.
Dried Fruit – unsulfured and with no sorbate/silicon dioxide (no preservatives) – apricots, raisins, dried plums, dates, figs, mangos, pears, etc, etc, etc.)
Vegetables – carrots, celery, cucumbers, avocados, etc.
Seeds – chia, sunflower, flax, pumpkin, hemp, sesame, etc.
Nuts and nut butters – best raw and without any added oils and only salted with unrefined sea salt – almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, pecans, cashews, almond butter, organic valencia peanut butter, etc
Raw milk cheeses – from grassfed or pasture based animals is best!
Organic yogurt – sheep and goat yogurt is typically easier to digest, but raw A2 cow dairy is great, too
Pre-hard boiled eggs – best from organic and pastured hens- made at home and some sold in a resealable bag
