Road Warrior Nutrition

Eating nutritionally on the road can be a challenge. Fast food chains are cheap and fast, but not always the best choice. Senior Health Coach Penny shares her tips for Road Warrior Nutrition:

I get asked quite often “What do you eat when on the road?”

Some days, I can only eat in the car so everything has to be easy and convenient. I prepare simple grab-and-go foods that take little prep but go the distance nutritionally when traveling. Here is what I packed today:

  • apple, plum, blackberries,
  • chopped veggies,
  • nut butter with honey on whole grain,
  • baked chicken tenders from home,
  • yogurt,
  • low-fat cheese stick,
  • whole grain crackers,
  • boiled eggs,
  • utensils/napkins/Ziploc bag for trash/sanitary hand wipes and
  • plenty of water!

Staying hydrated and having plenty of water on hand is key! I also make sure to stop every hour and stretch. Going too long without moving your body can cause the build-up of acids in your muscles that cause stiffness and pain so make sure to stretch it out!

What are some of your favorite healthy snacks to-go?
