Tips for Smart Summer Travel

Have a snack stash handy.

Nothing can ruin a good time like hunger pangs. Keep easily portable snacks on hand in your car, purse, or book bag so you can strategically infuse energy into your day whenever needed. I love packing heart-healthy almonds, peanuts, or sunflower seeds in portion-controlled containers. Not only are they loaded with nutrients like protein, fiber and antioxidants, but they keep your energy level on an even keel so you can power through until mealtime. If you’re looking for other easy-to-pack items, try my Crunchy Spiced Chickpeas or Tasty Trail Mix.
