Our Favorite Travel Snacks

We may be blessed with healthy options on every street corner in New York and other big cities, but what happens when we leave? It can seem challenging to stick to an anti-inflammatory, health-promoting diet when you’re traveling, but there are plenty of items you can keep with you to stay healthy in the air or on the road.

If you’re stuck grabbing something at the airport, depending on which airport, you might still be in luck. Some of these items may be higher in sugar, but you have to make the best of what you have access to! You can find these items at convenience stores, Starbucks and cafes in the airport:

  • Lara Bar
  • Rx Bar
  • Raw nuts
  • Banana
  • Pre-made salads
  • Hummus and vegetables
  • Boiled eggs
  • Guacamole

Another option that many find helpful, especially if you tend to have digestive distress on flights, or if you’re flying across time zones, is fasting. By giving your digestive system a break while in the air, common digestive symptoms are often lessened. Additionally, eating helps set your internal clock just like light and darkness. The idea is that if you go an extended period of time without food, your first meal at your destination will encourage your body and brain to operate on local time.

Every body is different, which is why fasting might not be for everyone! If you’ve never done it before, make sure you do it under the guidance of a nutritionist or doctor.

Bon voyage and bon appetit!

Think party food and beach bodies don’t mix? Think again! Here are our 5 ways to “healthy hack” your next summer barbecue:

1. Go “protein style” with your burger

Take a note from In-N-Out’s not-so-secret-menu and go lower-carb version: wrap your beef patty or veggie patty in a large romaine or collard green leaf. Or just eat it atop veggie sides!
