I’m pro adapting to local food habits while travelling. But sometimes it’s just that what makes it difficult to maintain a healthy diet. For example, in countries where they don’t really eat breakfast or mostly huge pieces of meat for dinner and vegetables are nowhere to be found. That’s why I always bring some healthy food with me. This is my list of must-have food for your suitcase. It’s weighs nothing and doesn’t need to be refrigerated. It’s super easy to travel the world with these foods.
Every where you can get yogurt. With a few spoons from my jar of homemade breakfast mix of oatmeal, chia seeds, flax seeds and raw cacao I start the day healthy and wont have a nagging I-have-just-ate-but-again-hungry belly.
Tip: your body can only take broken linseed. At home you can put it briefly in the blender first.
The healthy alternative for candy:) I always travel with dried apricots and figs. In the Netherlands, it can be difficult to find fresh dried fruit. Morocco is truly a mecca for that matter. On every street corner they sell super soft freshly dried fruits.
A handful of nuts is a handful of energy. Handy when it takes a while until you can eat. I always bring almonds and hazelnuts with me. But my favourites are freshly roasted cashews. On the beaches in Brazil you can buy a big bag for just a few cents. Delicious!
Both nuts and Nakd bars are my favorite snacks. Made from all natural ingredients such as fruit and nuts. Without sugars and so. Perfect if you need an energy boost during a long trekking or a sweaty bike tour. You can wake me up for the Banana Crunch or the Berry Delight:)
I’m a serious tea addict. I think I probably drink 1,5 liters a day. Nowadays in almost every hotel room or apartment is to find a kettle. Unfortunately, the tea bags are mostly so so…. Therefore I just my own delicious teas from Pukka. Organic with many different flavors.
Do you bring your own super foods?
