Emergency Food Kit

I’m writing to you from 10,000 feet up. Woohoo for WiFi!

Thumbs down for salted peanuts and shortbread cookies, pretzels or 100-calorie pack foods!

Truth – it can be really hard to find real, whole foods – especially on a flight or when traveling.

When I’ve gone without healthier food options or food in general – it leads to a whole emotional rollercoaster and body upset! NOT FUN!

But, it doesn’t have to be this way.

In fact, I spent a few days at Disney and I’m blown away by the chefs and restaurants that are so accomodating to allergies and gluten free!

Needless to say – I had no idea what I was gonna be able to eat until I got here, so I came prepared -as I always do when I travel!

Because here’s the full meal deal disclosure – I literally go nuts and I mean I get a little crazy pants when I go too long without food. It messes with my blood sugar and my emotions!

There are always airport restaurants or gas stations, but you can never be sure you’ll find something that will serve you.

When in doubt, you can arm yourself with real food options in your carry-on bag or purse. It doesn’t matter if you’re traveling on a plane, driving to another state or just doing errands; an Emergency Food Kit is key!

I got this idea from Dr. Mark Hyman who always carries an emergecy food kit with him! And, if you’ve traveled and been left hungry and hanging – you know that having some key items can be a lifesaver!

When I was traveling recently, I noticed I had a few other ‘trip tricks’ up my sleeve and I’m happy to share them with you! 

  • I always bring my empty glass water bottle with me so I’m not paying top dollar for bottled water in the airport or on the road 
  • I put a piece of Turmeric – yes Turmeric in the bottle, just a slice to help fight off the nasty bacteria and other stuff you get exposed to on airplanes and just in new environments. It helps keep your immune system up to snuff! 
  • Love this one! I recently brought a ceramic tea mug with me (empty) and a whole bunch of  green tea bags and had tea anywhere I went. I just asked the server or barista to kindly fill my cup with hot water! 

Now, I totally want to hear your savvy travel food and drink tips!
