5 Healthy Snacks to Bring on the Plane | #PSPfit

January 28 2015 | CeCe Olisa

Dear CeCe,

I’m trying to live a more healthy lifestyle, but I travel a lot for work. I know airport food is bad for me, but sometimes its all I have time to grab. Any ideas? -LC

Hi LC!

We talk about this a lot during #PSPfit bootcamp, so I know the healthy airport struggle is real. There are actually a lot of non-liquid things that we can bring through the TSA checkpoint with no problems, quick tip: avoid foil so that you don’t run into issues when they x-ray your bags. I’m boycotting winter and heading to Miami for a few days * throws glitter* here’s what I’m bringing on the plane:

5 Healthy Snacks For the plane #PSPfit CeCe Olisa

Chicken or Salmon

These days there is at least one airplane vendor with a side salad for sale. I like to bring some grilled chicken or salmon, throw it over my airport side salad and boom… quick and healthy airport lunch!

Oatmeal Packets

There will always be a coffee/tea vendor in the airport, so bring some organic oatmeal packets ask for a cup of hot water from Starbucks and pour it in. I like to ask for a “tall” cup of hot water in a “grande” cup so that I have room to stir in my oatmeal without spilling it everywhere.

Vega Protein Shakes

I also keep packets of Vega Protein Powder in my suitcase along with a Blender Bottle. I drink these after I workout at the hotel, so I use them throughout my trip but in a pinch I’ve made a little shake in the airport to keep me away from the cinnabon counter. I prefer to make vega shakes with almond milk, but I’ll use water too if I have to.

Hummus

Hummus is a great snack for the plane. I like to dip veggies or dates in my hummus. Also, if you’re doing the salmon and garden salad thing, hummus can be a good salad dressing alternative.

Sunflower Seeds & Cranberries

I never thought I’d be a “nuts and berries” type of girl, but I love to make a simple trail mix of roasted sunflower seeds and organic dried cranberries when I travel. I usually put it in a ziplock bag and carry it with me in my purse. Its easy an easy snack for the plane and when I’m on my trip, a handful keeps me from getting ravenous and making unsupportive food choices.

Hope that helps… what healthy snacks do you ladies bring on the plane?

    This might sound silly, but you can get squeezable pouches of organic applesauce or fruit and vegetables. They are marketed for babies, but there are 4 oz ones for older kids that are a good serving size. Lots of moms also eat them!
