Travel-Friendly Snacks to Pack On Your Next Trip
I always say “being prepared isn’t just for the Boy Scouts”. Anyone who has spent any time traveling knows that buying food on the road or in airports can break the bank and blow your blood sugar to the moon.
Here are a few of my go-to options to save cash and keep my numbers in range when I’m traveling:
- Boiled Eggs, Mixed Nuts, and Turkey Bites. Loaded full of fats, a moderate amount of protein, and calorie dense, this combo is my number one choice for long flights. It keeps me feeling full and satisfied all the while serving as an excellent movie-watching snack on board. You just need to get over the fact that you’re the person peeling boiled eggs on the plane!
- Egg Bites. Needing nothing more than eggs, a muffin pan, and whatever else you have in the fridge, these little bad boys are both tasty and satisfying. Don’t be fooled by imposters sold at a big coffee chain (that shall remain nameless), those are full of cornstarch and other preservatives, that I can’t spell, that will absolutely wreck your numbers. Check out the full recipe in the Diabetic Breakfast Solution cookbook.
- Quest Protein Bars. I don’t usually endorse the consumption of processed foods of any kind, but these bars have saved me on many a long bus ride and boat trip in Central America. With only 11g net carbs, 20g protein, and only 1g of sugar, they’re an easy fix in a pinch, but I wouldn't make them a daily habit. While they are sweetened with stevia, they also contain erythritol and polydextrose which can cause gastric disturbance and result in a tornado of gas - don’t say I didn’t warn you!
There you have it. My roadtrippin’, airport hoppin’, snack attackin’, choices for both blood sugar control and a balanced budget. Happy trails!
