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
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:
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!
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 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?
