Traveling can take it out of you. After hours in an airport or plane, days on the road and often a significant time change, you can feel exhausted. My new book, The Healthy Traveler: 8 Pathways to Smart and Effortless Travel offers great ways to avoid the stress of travel on your body, from how to avoid jet lag and getting sick to what not to eat when you’re wiped out.

    I made these twice, and everybody loved them so much. Now they want me to make them every day. I used raw cacao nibs instead of the cacao powder, so they were crunchy, and replaced the honey with the same amount of soaked raisins. I rolled the balls in shredded coconut. Delicious!
