Whenever I travel I always pack snacks. Sometimes I even have my snacks packed before I have my clothes packed. It’s pretty funny. When I arrived at my cousin’s house she immediately asked what food I brought because she knew I would pack some treats. Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this!?!
The reason I like to pack snacks is because finding healthy options at the airport is like looking for a needle in a haystack (which, btw did you see the guy who proved it’s not impossible to find a needle in a haystack?) Also, airport food is crazy expensive. So yeah, I always pack my own food and I also bring my water bottle so that I don’t have to buy bottled. Healthy travel trick: unfilled water bottles are totally fine going through security. Once you’re through you can fill it up at a water fountain or any restaurant that has a self-serve soda fountain with a water option. I’ve even asked the folks at Starbucks to fill up my water bottle and they usually don’t mind.
Okay, so let’s talk about what I brought with me on this trip… lots of snacks and some food to share with my cousin and her family once I arrived. 🙂
In my carry-on bag:
overnight oats (it was an early morning flight)
chickpea trail mix (I’m sharing this recipe today)
think thin bars (I’m loving the Salted Caramel Lean Protein + Fiber AND they have new holiday flavors right now — Pumpkin Spice and Dark Chocolate Peppermint)
protein powder packets
In my checked bag:
I didn’t eat all my snacks on the plane so I have a few for my flight home today. Brooke…
