Eating healthy when you’re traveling can be a challenge. Airport food courts aren’t exactly known for their sterling nutritional reputations and airplane pretzels bust the carb count. To take the pain out of scouring menus or eating only iceberg lettuce, we’ve compiled a list of our go-to low carb snacks to grab when you’re on the run.
We love nuts! Not all nuts are created equal in low-carb land though. Almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans and walnuts are full of proteins and omegas to keep you going.
Who said crudite was only for parties? Look for celery sticks which can pair really well with a bit of cream cheese and the next item on our list…
An unprocessed, real food, these briney babies pack a nutritional punch. Good things really do come in small packages. A superfood, olives are a good source of heart-healthy fats, vitamin E and are loaded with antioxidants.
The kale kraze of recent years has meant there is an abundance of pre-packaged kale chips ready and waiting for your next trip. These crispy critters can satisfy your need for crunch while being both nutritious and delicious.
String cheese is not a kids food. Neither are the mini gouda rounds or individually packaged sharp cheddars. This is travel food at its finest!
Sometimes you need a bit of meat — especially if you’re looking to up your iron and protein intake. Keep an eye out for cold cuts, beef jerky and pepperoni when perusing the in-terminal snack stands. Just make sure to check the label for added sugar and high levels of sodium.
Super portable and full of protein to stave off your hunger, an egg may well be the perfect travel snack. A little salt and pepper to spice things up and you’re in business.
