• Healthy, Travel-Friendly Eats

    September 20, 2012

    Since I’m off to Baltimore this morning (and because I’ve been traveling so much lately), I decided to write a post about the foods I often eat during my travels. (Most of them are Paleo-friendly!) Some of them take a little advanced planning, but it’s worth it, and I hope they give you some ideas for your own snacks!


    Fresh fruit and veggies—all kinds!


    Chunked chicken breast—wrapped in tinfoil to keep it cold and then put in a plastic bag.


    Sliced deli turkey + sautéed greens and roasted veggies.

    Greens turkey

    Hardboiled eggs.


    Canned tuna—drained and mixed with avocado and spices or made into Tuna Cakes.


    Avocado—cut in half with salt and pepper (wrapped in tinfoil and eaten with a spoon) or mixed into a meal or snack.

    Coconut butter.


    Trail mix—homemade or store-bought.

    Nut and sunflower butters. I love mixing them with fresh fruit, Sweet Potato Wedges, or Morning Glory Muffins. Justin’s and SunButter make single-serving, travel-friendly packets.


    If I’m on the road and can’t prepare food ahead of time, I try to find a Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s or grocery store to buy healthy snacks/meals.

    The hot bar at Whole Foods rules. The last time I was there, I mixed jerk chicken with grilled plantains, raisins, and walnuts for breakfast. It was so delish!

    Packaged snacks that I like: NoGii Bars and Larabars.


    Primal Pacs—look nasty, but taste delicious!


    Protein Bistro Box from Starbucks.


    What are your favorite travel-friendly snacks?

    I was just traveling for work this week and I took oatmeal along in pre-measured bags. Oats, raisins, chia seeds. Just used the coffee machine in the room for hot H20. Perfect to fill up with in the AM.

    So many great options! I typically fill up on trail mix, nuts or fruit. I like grab-n-go foods to keep life a bit easier on the road.

    Have you ever had problems with coconut butter and security? I know its pretty much solid but after my friend had to dump out a whole container of frosting I’ve become paranoid! If thy make me throw out my coconut butter I will shed tears.
