How to Pack 8 Healthy Travel Snacks

Being a professional athlete I have had the opportunity to travel the world. Airports were my second home. 

Lately, air travel has slowed down for me, but I still ride all over town in my car. 

One thing that used to bug me was when I was finally ready to partake in my snack, it would be crushed or broken into a million pieces. 

There’s nothing worse than a $3 protein bar, or beautiful juicy berries that have been smashed and flattened like a pancake!

Being the problem solver that I am, I had to figure out a solution. Here’s what I did.  You know the plastic reusable sandwich boxes you can get pretty much anywhere? (I get mine from a dollar store.)

They aren’t just for sandwiches you know.  I use them to keep safe my grapes, energy bars, pretzels, or anything else that normally gets broken up or destroyed in my purse or bag.

I love peanut butter pretzels and whenever I’d go from point A to point B, they would always be cracked open with the peanut butter oozing out. Not anymore!

Containers are so cheap to come by now days, it’s worth it to get an entire set of different sized boxes to keep your snacks travel-safe.

If you are trying to help your husband lose a few inches, you can pack these healthy travel snacks for him when he goes out of town or to work. And the best part is, they’ll arrive to his work desk or on the airplane in tact. He’ll love it!

8 Healthy Travel Snacks

  • Popcorn
  • Muffins (Use a larger plastic container for these, round bowls work well.)
  • Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels
  • Apples with Nut Butter
  • Homemade Energy Bars (your husband will love these)
  • Crackers and Cheese (no more broken crackers!!)
  • Roasted Coconut Sweet Potatoes (yes I take these to-go for a snack)
