Eating Healthy While Traveling

Eating Healthy While Traveling
Being someone who travels outside the U.S. usually once a year, and in the U.S. throughout the year, I have learned to pack my own snacks.  The food provided when traveling by air is not plentiful and the quality is often poor.   My family lives in a neighboring state and I often do not take time to stop and eat a meal and the primary options are fast food restaurants.
When traveling here are some foods I pack:
  • Granola bars
  • Unsalted nuts
  • Whole-wheat crackers
  • Cheese (if I am driving and can bring a cooler.  My family is always more than happy to eat cheese produced in Wisconsin)
  • Sparkling water
  • Apples and bananas
  • Pre-peeled oranges
  • Carrots
  • Trail mix
  • Dried fruit 
If you are flying, check out websites like Independent Travel, Trip Advisor for advice about eating on the go.
