21 Plant-Based Foods That Are Great For Traveling

Whenever I travel I always pack several snacks and a sandwich in my carryon bag.  It’s not just because I always need a supply of food with me wherever I go but to also ensure that I have access to nutritious food.  Not only is it cheaper to travel with my own food but I won’t be as tempted to eat junk food I find along the way if I already have my favorite foods with me.

Prior to switching to a plant-based diet, I would scout an airport’s website to see what fast food restaurants were there and plan where I was going to eat at when I got there.

Nowadays I still scout an airport’s restaurant directory before traveling but now I’m checking to see if there are any healthy plant-based options offered.  If there isn’t then I make a shopping list of plant-based foods I want to bring for the trip. Then the night before I travel, I'll go to the supermarket to buy any ingredients I may need and prep any meals if necessary. When I get to the airport all I need to get is some water after passing through security and I’m all set.

Below are 21 plant-based foods that are great for traveling:

Nut butter sandwich

Instant oatmeal packets

Granola bars

Vegan protein powders

Stevia or agave sweeteners

Hummus wrap

Seeds (flax, hemp, chia, sunflower, etc.)

Raw nuts

Fresh fruit (if flying internationally buy them at the airport after passing through security and eat them before landing at your destination)

Cut up raw vegetables

Tea packets

Homemade trail mix

Whole grain crackers

Kale chips

Vegan protein bars

Unsweetened dried fruit

Veggie burger

Salads (dressing must be in a container no bigger than 3 ounces if flying)

Veggie sushi

Fruit and nut bars

Nut butter in to go packets

Pick and choose from this list and you won't go hungry on your next trip.
