How these Travel Snacks Make My Life easier
The spring and summer travel season is coming up fast. I have a few quick trips planned, and will hopefully plan a couple other trips. But with long travel times, comes long distances between me and my trusty kitchen.
But it’s kinda hard to find that balance of snacks that are delicious, energizing, and leave my body feeling good. A few years ago, I brought a box of fiber bars on a trip to Central America. Thanks to ALL the chicory root fiber in them, I felt queasy, bloated, and that was just on my first flight. It took this mistake to want to experiment with different snack ideas, choosing foods with fiber that won’t make my GI system go crazy, that will leave me feeling satisfied, good, and make an uncomfortable flight or car ride as comfortable as possible.
How they will make your life easier
Well, I’ve got a number of dietitian approved delicious non perishable snacks (with no liquids) that will keep you feeling good on a long flight and a few you can keep in a small cooler that will keep you feeling good on a long car ride.
