Traveling (or even a full day of errands or work commitments) can wreak havoc on your fitness and health goals, when convenience foods become more tempting because they are considered an "easy" snacking option. That is most definitely not the case, and those snacks can start adding up to unwanted weight and inches over time, stalling progress and impeding the hard work you put in during your weekly exercise.
For years now, I've been in the habit of taking healthy foods with me either to work or on trips so that I'm less likely to fall into the "processed, quick and easy" food trap. Some easy to grab options that fit into a small cooler are below, I hope this will be a good model for you in the future!
Light Cheese sticks
Power Protein balls (like my healthy Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Bites)
Organic protein shake (Orgain brand has become a staple for snacking, workout recovery and baking too!)
Whole food snack pouches (I really like "Shine Organics" brand, found at target is multiple varieties)
Raw unsalted nuts
Healthy Nutrition Bars (Caveman, Kind and ProBar are ones we enjoy)
All natural jerky (Krave is a favorite)
Raw veggies and hummus (Costco carries a large single serving versions that's great for travel or packing for lunch)
