shutterstock_281131376We all know the only thing worse than holiday travel is grabbing food on the run. And we’ve reached that time again where travel for some of us is, well, inevitable. If you’re going to hit the road, hit the high road with some nutrient-rich, healthy snacks to keep your body and mind properly fueled as you navigate the masses…and your family. Here are some delicious snack ideas that are a perfectly packable treat for you and yours.

If you don’t have time to whip up a healthy snack, there are several quick grabs available at your nearby super market:

  • Berries – Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or cherries
  • Apples
  • Baby carrots
  • Nuts
  • To-go hummus packs
  • Rice crackers
  • Wasabi peas
  • Bananas
  • String cheese

And remember, boredom equals hunger! If you have the opportunity while traveling, take laps in the airport, stop at the rest area to get some fresh air, take a fitness class at a local gym and stay hydrated. These tips will keep your mind distracted from poor food decisions while keeping your nutrition on track.

Happy Holidays!
