In the meantime, here are a few travel food tips from the Healthy Traveler’s Food Guide that you can use for weekend getaways, business trips, summer vacation and more. Happy Travels!
When traveling by plane, always pack an empty BPA-free water bottle with a filter already in it so that you can fill at any water fountain once you’re past security, saving you $4 or more.
If you’re taking a road trip, pack a cooler with ice, cool beverages, salads, sandwiches, fresh fruit and vegetables and other perishables so you can eat while on the road and in your hotel room. Always bring your own packaged sea salt full of minerals to complement any meal you have. Add a pinch of sea salt to water one to two times a day to ensure water absorption into your cells and to keep your electrical body fully charged.
If you’re flying, leave room in a carry-on to pack a lunch or dinner—salads in portable containers; sandwiches wrapped in wax paper; bags of trail mix, granola, nuts and gluten free cookies, and truffles, all safely stowed and TSA-approved.
Heading to a hotel? Check before you go to see if your hotel room has a refrigerator. If not, see if you can request one. Often they’re readily available, for a nominal fee and, in the long run, you’ll save money.
