How to Eat on the Road

So, we are on the road a lot and we try to eat well. Here are some tips for foraging on the run.

1. Pack some good snacks. We like nuts and bars. I like to pick up a couple of salads to supplement whatever we get at the airport for the flight.

2. Do a little research on your airports. Check out Airport Food online. Beecher’s is a local cheese shop that makes great soups and sandwiches…yes dairy…but yes to quality as well. Check out the cheese selection at the airport in Seattle, WA! Great place to pick up a little cutting board and cheese for your hosts!

I LOVE that they spelled “Chris” with a “K” on our sandwich…

3. Get the YELP! App and type “healthy” in the search section. We enjoyed Backyard Bowls (fruit/granola/smoothie bowls) in Santa Barbara, CA this weekend.

I had some DELICIOUS eggplant and tofu with brown rice at Loving Hut Veagan restaurant in Ladera Ranch, CA.

4. Look up local grocery stores like Whole Foods, Sprouts or Jimbo’s for easy, healthy meals.

What snacks do you pack? How do you find good food when traveling?
