One of my absolute favorite parts of vacation is the planning. Recently I’ve made more of an effort to make sure to plan healthy snacks for the plane, hotel room, etc. Tim and I just had an amazing trip to New York City, so I thought I’d provide some ideas for healthy travel snacks…
Just add hot water for a delicious (and cheap!) breakfast of oatmeal, apples, cranberries and walnuts. I packed a couple of these Quaker cups for our hotel room.
Dried fruit and nuts are an easy and satisfying snack. These were perfect for the plane when the free pretzels weren’t cutting it. I stocked up at Walgreens, because each package was just 99 cents.
Fruit with a thick peel is easy to toss in your carry-on.
The day before we left I cut up these bell peppers to snack on while we toured around the city. And yes, I did purposely choose green and red ones for Christmas…
Finally, no trip (or day) would be complete without my favorite snack of all time… Luna Bars! I need to start buying them in bulk, because I eat at least one a day.
I think the best part about planning healthy snacks ahead of time is that if you do want to splurge (like when we were walking around Soho and came upon Georgetown Cupcake) you don’t have to hesitate!
If you’re traveling for the holidays, have a safe and happy trip!
