In the last couple days of traveling and being in San Antonio, I have never been more thankful for my LARABARS, Clif Bars, apples, and nut butter that I packed from home. There’s been more than one occasion that they nearly saved me from biting someone’s head off or eating my own arm.
I am one of those people that has to eat every 3-4 hours otherwise I turn into a big old crab. I would much rather prefer to eat smaller meals and snacks more often throughout the day. It just works for me and my body. I like not feeling overly stuffed after a meal, and I like eating more often because, well, I just love to eat.
Traveling and being on vacation makes it a little more challenging to have an endless amount of healthy snacks available though. I suppose I could find some sort of healthy snacks around, but they are most likely three times the price they would be in my grocery store. I don’t know about you, but I hate getting ripped off and knowing that I could get something much cheaper somewhere else. This is why planning ahead is absolutely crucial when traveling.
I like to pack snacks that are all-natural, healthy, and will leave me feeling satisfied for longer than a half hour. As much as I wish they did, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Jolly Ranchers don’t leave me satisfied for long. Some of my favorite on-the-road (or plane) snacks are:
- Trail Mix
- LARABARS/Clif Bars/LUNA Bars
- Raw nuts
- Oatmeal packets (for in the hotel)
- Granola bars
These are all foods that don’t need to be refrigerated, don’t take much (if any) prep work, and they are easy to throw in your bag or purse. All it takes is a little planning ahead, and you’ve got yourself covered!
P.S. I’ve loved hearing about all of your favorite coffee drinks! Keep ‘em coming!
