I’ve been traveling a great deal this Summer. In fact, I’ve only been in San Francisco for one weekend over the last two months. While that mostly just means errands and “life” things getting done during the week rather than on weekends, it also means I’ve become something of a professional in the art of food packing.
I like to have healthy options available when I travel, but more than that, I don’t want anyone worrying about feeding me or stressing about menus that are Caity-friendly when they could be focusing on more important things.
So what are some of my go-to snacks & easy meals for weekends away?
Trail Mix: While store-bought mixes are a great option in a pinch, I like to make my own with raw nuts & seeds if there is time. Cashews, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds & organic raisins. Trader Joe’s has great options for raw nuts & organic dried fruit made without chemicals.
Bars: I’ve been making this Homemade Larabar recipe about once a week. They’re perfect for traveling and you can just throw in whatever ingredients you have on hand.
Energy Bites: I keep a batch of Protein Energy Bites in my freezer at all times. They’re the perfect pre or post-workout snack AND ideal for traveling.
Crudite: Sliced veggies and hummus are an easy go to. You can even simplify things further by snagging pre-washed bagged veggies from your local grocery story. Perfect if you’re short on time!
When YOU’RE traveling, do you bring food?
