I travel so much I can probably write a book on it… but it is not always as glamorous as it may seem. Most airlines crank up the AC no matter what time of the year it is, which always makes me feel cold, grumpy and exposed to colds. The food is loaded with toxins and air filled with germs… gross! To prevent myself from getting sick, I try to make my flight as pleasant as possible by always packing these travel essentials.
10 Traveling Tips & What to Pack For The Plane
- Pack warm socks, my feet are ALWAYS freezing when I fly.
- Make sure to bring a cozy sweater and a scarf.
- Always carry a large water bottle to stay hydrated.
- Sip on lemon/ginger tea to improve circulation and reduce inflammation.
- Have probiotics on hand to keep good bacteria in the gut and help with travel bloat.
- Take a digestive enzyme to help support digestion.
- Charge your laptop, iPad and bring headphones. A lot of times airlines don’t invest in soundproof headphones so better off bringing your own.
- Bring green powders that are packed with nutrients and antioxidants, such as SPRUCE – use NEDI20 when purchasing for 20% OFF!
- Pack a sleeping mask to support melatonin production and enjoy a restful sleep.
- Carry a moisturizer and lip balm to avoid getting dry skin on long flights.
Most Importantly – BRING YOUR OWN FOOD!
- GG High Fiber Crackers – It is no secret that I LOVE these crackers. Four GG crackers have just 80 calories, 8 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber. Fiber is known to help with weight loss, improve digestion, and promote heart health. You can top the fiber crackers in so many delicious ways that will ensure you stay full throughout the flight!
- Juice Press Kelp Noodles – I always stop by Juice Press to pick up a few packs before I leave town, as this is one of my all time favorite mini snack. One serving of these yummy noodles contain 120 calories, and only 1 net carb! Juice press also sells many other pre-packaged snacks for people on the go.
- Raw Nuts – Nuts pack a powerful nutritional punch! I usually bring a mix of pistachios, macadamia and brazil nuts. Pistachios are known as the “skinny nut” because they have fewer calories and fat thank most nuts. Studies have shown that eating raw nuts may improve heart health and brain memory.
- Boiled Egg – No matter where I am flying to, you can be sure that I have a boiled egg in my bag. They are the perfect, filling light snack for trips long and far.
- High Fiber Bars – I usually am not a huge fan on protein/fiber bars but recently discovered Raw Rev. They are raw, vegan, and gluten-free. The peanut butter with dark chocolate and sea salt taste insane! They have 11 g of protein, 13 g of fiber and only 3 g of sugar.
- Long Flights – Make your a delicious green salad and top it with your choice of protein or cauliflower rice with salmon.
