My Favorite Snack

Well, I bet you thought this post was going to be about chips and guac.

Trust me, that’s my favorite unhealthy snack. Nothing tastes better after a long week or a long night of drinking ;].

But, I can’t eat like that all the time, especially when I’m traveling. And, recently, I’ve been doing a lot more traveling, which means a lot more time away from my own kitchen and routine.

So whether it’s a week-long stay at the beach with my family, a weekend in Nashville for a Bachelorette, or a work stint on a college campus, by the end of the trip I’m usually craving whole foods that really help fuel my body as opposed to just providing empty calories.

Enter: Nourish Snacks.

These super delicious snacks with great names—I love a good pun y’all—might be familiar to you because they’ve been popping up all over. Starbucks—check. DCA Terminal A—check. Your coworker’s desk—check.

And they’ve been popping up for good reason. Most are under 200 calories and are heavy on fiber and protein, meaning they’re a great snack to keep you satiated between meals. Unlike snacks that are heavy on carbs, which spike your blood sugar temporarily, these have the nutrients to keep you fuller longer, meaning you won’t be hangry when traveling. (Or at your desk during the 3 pm slump!)

Now that sounds like a snack we can all get behind—especially because being hangry is the worst.

So now, whenever I am packing for a trip, I make sure I have lots of my favorite Nourish Snacks on-hand for my carry-on or purse. My favorites are Berry’d Treasure, Mr. Popular, and Coco’nilla Crunch. But a great way to get a feel for what you like would be to try the Sampler Collection and go from there.

Another key thing I do when I’m traveling, in addition to healthy snacking, is making sure I drink a lot of water. At my desk during a normal day, this is easy because I keep a 32-ounce tumbler around and fill it up several times a day. But when you’re on the move, it’s easier to reach for coffee and sodas, and harder to remember to get your H2O.

My trick is to buy a huge water bottle the first chance I get, and fill it up every time I pass by a water fountain. That way, I’m never without water, and if it’s around, I’ll drink it. Plus, thirst can easily be confused for hunger, so staying hydrated will also help you check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Oh, and one last travel tip I learned the hard way: always say no to the last drink. You don’t need it and you’ll save yourself $12 and the need for Advil next morning. Nourish your body instead!

      Yes! The perfect size, and the packages are really sturdy so they won’t be ripped if you throw them into a bag.
