You’ve worked hard all year to get your physique beach-ready. Instead of returning to square one post-vacay splurge, pack your bags with these healthier alternatives (or grab these at your destination) for those moments when you’re craving junk food.Photo courtesy of tashka2000/iStock
Satiate hunger and rack up on vitamins.
Tip: Grab a few extras from your hotel’s complimentary breakfast to eat throughout the day.
2. Salted almonds
Poppable protein that’s travel-friendly
3. String cheese or Babybel®
Feed your cravings with a savory pre-portioned treat
4. Hummus with veggies
Enjoy with carrots in place of chips and queso
5. Granola or Nutri-Grain bars
Healthier and more substantial than a candy bar
Are you really hungry or just thirsty? Chug it up!
7. Seaweed chips
Light and crispy without the weighty calorie cost.
Tip: Pack these before you leave–they can be hard to find outside of specialty grocery stores. And make sure to floss after eating!
Go Greek or stick with the standard. Either’s satisfying and calcium-rich.
9. Trail mix
Refuel with nuts, chocolate and raisins. Just remember, moderation is key!
10. Peanut butter celery sticks
Quick to make, fun to eat, and "stick to your ribs"
