Travel Snack Ideas

Cara received product to review. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed are 100% her own.

In a few weeks, I am getting the heck out of this freezing Minnesota weather to head to Puerto Rico with my husband for a vacation. Ahhhh....just thinking about it makes me feel better about the -24 degree warning we are having this morning.

Since we are renting a car, staying at rental homes and cooking some/most of our own meals, I need to bring lots of snacks. Since we are going to be hiking through the rainforest, snorkeling, learning to surf and jumping off waterfalls, I need to have healthy food on hand that will fuel our bodies to pack in as much fun as possible.

Here are a few of my favorite snacks that we will bringing with us.

Bitsy's Brainfood are normally snacks for kids that are jam-packed with healthy veggies, but when I first tried some myself, I loved them! So, now they are coming with us. You might think a veggie based snack cookie/cracker would taste odd, but these don't. With flavors like Lemon Broccoli, Orange Chocolate Beet, Zucchini Gingerbread Carrot, Sweet Potato Oatmeal Carrot, these snacks are delicious, flavorful, and the veggie flavors are very subtle. I love the organic ingredients and boost of vitamins and omega-3s you get from eating them! I only wish they also had gluten-free versions, so my children could eat them.

Nature’s Path Gingerbread Love Crunch is just about the most delicious granola ever! Gingerbread Love Crunch is 100% USDA certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, and is a Fair Trade Certified product. I love the little bits of ginger sprinkled throughout, and the allspice, cinnamon, and cloves add amazing flavor!! I would snack on this stuff all day long if I could. My only sadness comes from the fact that this is a seasonal product available exclusively at Whole Foods during the holidays. I am stocking up while I can!!

Crispy Green has the perfect assortment of goodies that are sweet and healthy – Crispy Fruit 100% natural, freeze-dried fruit slices. These sweet, succulent, light and crispy snacks are less than 55 calories a bag, making for a healthy and delicious holiday snack for all! I love the convenient size,which makes them super easy for bringing along while traveling. In addition to the newest flavor, Crispy Fruit Tangerine, you can choose from any one the following flavors: apple, pear, mango, pineapple, banana, and cantaloupe. They are all delicious and are a great treat in winter when many of these fruits aren't available fresh.

So, no more excuses about having to eat crappy when you are traveling. You can still get plenty of nutrition and stay on track with healthy eating while you are away from your own kitchen. Dig in!
