Travelin' Smart

Traveling is probably one of my favorite hobbies. Travel seekers love the experience of new sites, people, and yummy cuisine. What’s the best way to travel without breaking the pocket book or the diet regime?

Find a hotel with a mini-fridge and microwave!

Pack things like:
  • Blue corn chips and fresh salsa
  • Nitrate and hormone free turkey or chicken breast
  • Cereal/Oatmeal
  • Milk
  • Whole grain bread or whole grain tortillas
  • Lettuce, Tomatoes, Green Onion (already cleaned and prepared)
  • Fresh fruit
  • Trail mix/Granola
  • Low-fat/non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Peanut butter filled pretzels
  • Deli Mustard/Sandwich Spreads
  • Hummus, Celery, Carrots
  • Trail mix/protein bars (low in sugar and sodium)
  • Water
  • Wine/Beer

Often times when traveling we forget our mid-meals, which causes us to eat much more for breakfast, lunch and dinner…fussing with our metabolism. Packing snacks, breakfast and lunch items not only saves you money but also doesn’t destroy all that hard work you put in for that sexy travel wardrobe. Now go ahead and splurge on that fancy dinner and feel good about savoring that decadent dessert, you are on vacay!

And don’t forget! Prep items:
  • Plastic baggies
  • Knife
  • Spoons
  • Bowls
  • Wine/Beer opener
