As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I do a bit of traveling for the blog. As much fun as traveling is, it can also be slightly stressful because it throws me out of my eating and gym-ing routine. My routine is very important to me because not only does it keep me healthy and in competition-shape, but it also keeps me sane. It’s one thing I can control even when other things in my life are hectic.
So when I travel, I do my very best to stay in control of the health and fitness situation by always having a few key items with me. Hope these healthy travel tips help you!
Protein powder! I always bring one scoop per day of my usual protein powder in a baggie. I also throw the scoop that comes with the protein in the baggie too. This way, if I get a workout in, I can stay on top of my post-workout shake game, or I can stir it into hotel buffet oatmeal for an easy breakfast if there’s not much healthy stuff to choose from.
A probiotic. When I travel, my diet is different than it would be at home because I’m eating at restaurants all the time. I recently found out I have some food sensitivities which I avoid in my own cooking but can’t always avoid at restaurants. So I like to bring something to help with my digestion, like this dual action probiotic by Nature Made® I got at Walmart. (I always look at Walmart first because of those well-known every day low prices!)
Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic has been clinically studied and provides dual support to both your small and large intestine for comprehensive coverage to help support digestive balance and healthy gut flora.†
Plus they come in these convenient blister packs. Perfect for travel!
Aside from probiotics, Nature Made® has tons of other vitamins, minerals and supplements to help you meet your health goals and close nutritional gaps. NatureMade® is also the #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand for many key dietary supplement categories*, so I trust them.

Sneakers that you can wear with casual outfits or to the gym. If there is a gym in my hotel or nearby, I try to get a workout in each day if I have time.
Purse tuna. That is, tuna you keep in your purse like a weirdo. An easy and portable source of protein that doesn’t need to be refrigerated or heated to eat. Just throw a disposable fork in your purse with it and you’re good to go.
Rice cakes. A source of carbs that, much like purse tuna, doesn’t need refrigeration or to be heated before eating. The only drawback is that they can get super crumbly if you aren’t gentle with them.
Nuts or nut butter. I usually choose raw almonds or a jar of nut butter for a source of fats. Even better than a jar of nut butter, though, is single serving packets because you don’t need silverware to eat them.
