Almost as important as the clothes I pack before a trip, are the snacks I gather up for our adventures. As Josh and I started to organize our bags for our trip, my mind was already wandering on what food we should bring along with us. Its always good to have a few healthy options to eat as we travel so I stuff my carry on with a few goodies to snack on as we go. If you were to peer into my carry on you would find my iPad nestled around dried fruit, nuts, granola, and a few food magazines for good measure. It seems though that every time I start to pack for a trip and begin to think about what snacks to bring my mind just goes blank, so this time I’m making a little list for future reference and I thought I would share it with you as well. I don’t bring all of these with me every trip but this is usually what I choose from:
- dried apricots
- raw almonds
- raw chocolate date balls (super easy to make and a healthy sweet treat)
- carrots and hummus
- oatmeal packets (you can always get hot water in airport cafes)
- oatmeal in a jar (adding hot water and milk from an airport coffee shop)
- tea or instant coffee
- homemade granola: either my favorite granola recipe or this coconut granola recipe or store bought if I’m in a hurry!
- homemade granola bars
- homemade muesli
I also created a Pinterest board called Travel Edibles full of travel snack ideas from other blogs. Included on the board are these yummy chocolate chip quinoa balls by Eat Live Run and this lentil trail mix by Three Many Cooks, both of which I’m dying to try. If you’re not on pinterest, feel free to shoot me an email or leave a comment and I will send you an invitation.
Now, it’s your turn. What healthy snacks do you like to bring along on a trip?
