As the holidays quickly approach two things come to my mind… food and travel! Both take preparation so I thought I’d combine the two and provide some quick tips for planning ahead. As everyone packs their suitcases, why not pre-pack some healthy snacks for the plane or car.
I am very excited to be flying home to Michigan this Thanksgiving. The downside is, of course, the craziness that goes along with holiday travel. Airports are starting to have more healthy food options, but I always prefer to bring my own food. For some reason the thought of being on a plane for 5 hours with no food sounds like the worst thing ever!
Here are some of my favorite things to pack for the plane!
Wish Farms PB&Fruit sandwich!
An old favorite that is super easy and portable. I recommend using whole wheat bread with no preservatives AND look at the label on your peanut butter. The only ingredients that should be in there are “Peanuts and Salt.” On top of that you can add strawberries, blueberries, and/or raspberries instead of jelly. That way you get the fruit flavor that you want without the sugar. It is another way to pack more fruit into the day.
My favorite power snack
Apples, carrots, and bananas
They travel well and stay good for a long time.
Wishing everyone a safe and delicious Thanksgiving! For more recipes and ideas you can visit my blog Maria Provenzano and continue to visit the Wish Farms Pixie Post.
