Travel Snacks: Sync Fitness Travel Mix


Let’s be honest, traveling is the perfect, easiest way to talk yourself out of healthy eating. Airport food is not the greatest and when we’re heading out of town for business or pleasure, it’s easy to just throw in the towel, promising, “I’ll just start fresh with healthy eating when I get home.” TRAVEL DOES NOT HAVE TO DERAIL YOUR DIET! The few pounds you gain over a few days of travel can take weeks to take back off. If you travel frequently these pounds REALLY ADD UP!! So here are some suggestions on what to take with you to the airport. Yes, all these items are legal to take through security!

Additionally, I’ve had a few of my 6 Week Total Body Transformation participants ask me for help with their commuting diet. People who are on the road for work, driving between appointments all day, really struggle to make healthy food choices. So, use the suggestions below to pack a little cooler or soft sided cooler bag in the morning.

Check out the video above to see how I make my “Travel Mix”. This stuff has lasted me through trips to Asia, South America, the Caribbean and all over the US. I make a big bag and munch on it my entire trip. This way I never have to resort to french fries. Let me tell you, EVERYWHERE I have traveled internationally has french fries as one of their staples. I think other countries think Americans live on them. It’s a little disheartening.

SNACKS THAT WILL LAST YOUR ENTIRE TRIP:
Sync Travel Mix
Snack Bars (Zing Bars, LaraBars, Pure Organic Bars)
Nuts (almonds, peanuts, cashews, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, pepitas)
Dries Fruits (apricots, prunes, dates, cranberries, raisins, cherries)
Protein Powder (Especially ones you can mix with water. Pack a shaker cup too!)

SNACKS FOR FIRST DAY OF TRAVEL:
Sandwiches (place a leaf of lettuce between soggy materials and bread)
String Cheese
Yogurt
Hard Boiled Eggs
Veggies (carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes, snap peas)
Fruits (apples, oranges, cherries, grapes)

Sara bravo on the travel reminders. One of the things that I struggle with while traveling is drinks and beverages. I forget about the world of ices teas, or lemon water and stuff like that. Do you have a favorite travel drink besides water, which I know is the best option to flush out toxins and all?

Oh and by the way Trader Joes should at least be giving you free samples of stuff! I mean hello, look at the mad promo you give them 😉

Brenda, water and teas are great. Water is especially important on air travel days, when you become dehydrated more easily. Try to drink a glass of water for every glass of non-water liquids you have.

I WISH TJ’s would hook me up! I do kinda feel like their spokesperson 🙂 .

We just got back from a trip to San Francisco and carried a water bottle wherever we went, filling it up at water fountains when we got the chance. Saved a pretty penny on bottled water and kept hydrated at the same time. I also carried low-fat granola bars everyday to keep us on track!

This looks so good – I stocked up yesterday at Trader Joe’s and made a big batch last night. Because the package sizes vary, I measured out five servings of each ingrediant – for the nuts a serving size is 1/4 cup. So a serving of the mix is basically one small handful which is something to be aware of. I took a jar to work with me today and have another one at home – thanks Sara!
