It's no secret that I love to travel. I've just returned from Paris and Frankfurt (check out my Instagram page for vacay photos!), and I'll be traveling to Washington D.C. later this week for a nutrition conference. So you can say I've been constantly packing and unpacking for weeks. And of course, the process includes replenishing my stash of healthy on-the-road snacks. Luckily, I've created a system that I use to stay fit and healthy while I explore the globe. I've collected top tips from other nutritionists, too, to give you a variety of travel hacks (and healthy snacks!) to choose from. So take your pick! From this seasoned advice to my seasoned chickpeas, there's something for everyone to keep your healthy eating efforts on track while you're busy jet setting. Happy travels, my friends!
