9 Healthy Travel Snacks – eat smarter on the road

Looking for some delicious and healthy travel snacks? Look no further! Here’s a list of 9 healthy travel snacks that are not only incredibly tasty, but also healthy!

If you travel on a regular basis, you get hungry on the plane or late at night in your hotel! And many times the options at the airport are either chock full of unneeded calories (and unhealthy ingredients!) or it’s too darned expensive (I just want some hummus…I did not want to refinance my house to afford it!).

That’s why I put this list of healthy travel snacks together. Hopefully it inspires you to travel just a little healthier when it comes to your travel snack attacks!

PS…I’ve included short product descriptions from each of the healthy travel snacks to save you a little time before deciding if you want to make the leap!

You can always make your own snacks

Another option for travelers looking to eat a little healthier in the snack department is to pack and bring your own homemade snacks. You need to be a little careful about this as it may not make sense for many business travelers (a big focus here at the CBoardingGroup) because of time or hassle, but it certainly is still an option.

My final thoughts on healthy travel snacks

I hope you’ve enjoyed this list of healthy travel snacks! If you are like me you know how darned difficult it is to eat healthy when you travel.

It’s also incredibly hard to find time to workout, hydrate and more. That’s why I wrote The 7 Habits of the Healthy Business Traveler: How to Stay Healthy While Traveling (for business or pleasure!).
