“Grab and Go”: Healthy Snacking for Summer Travel

“Grab and Go”: Healthy Snacking for Summer Travel

Summertime is the time to travel, explore and enjoy the great outdoors. But gosh all that can incite some hunger! Traina Foods offers quick and easy ideas for on-the-go nourishment this summer.

On the Trail — Whether hiking or biking, a long trail walk or ride requires a healthy snack that can go the long haul. A homemade trail mix is the perfect snack to bring along, and just as easy as purchasing a store-bought one. Traina Foods Natural Dried Fruit Medley is the perfect base to then add nuts, seeds, small pretzel bites, oats or even cereals such as Chex or Cheerios. For a taste of the islands, the Tropical Trail Mix is ready to set sail!

Up, Up and Away — When navigating airports and flights (what can be brought through security, on board, etc.), sometimes it’s just easiest to bring one’s own supplies. Traina Foods six-ounce packages of Fruitons in a variety of flavors and blends such as Julienne Apricots, All American Blend and Dried Fruit Mix. 

Road Trippin’ — Instead of stopping at fast-food restaurants along the road, pre-packing can go a long way in eating healthy during car travel. Overnight oats with Traina Foods Dried Fruit Bits or sandwiches (think chicken salad with dried cranberries and pecans; or caprese sandwiches with Traina Foods Julienned Sun Dried Tomatoes; or cracker sandwiches with soft goat cheese spread sprinkled with Traina Foods Dried Fruit bits) can be pre-made, wrapped tightly and placed in a cooler until it’s time to eat. Pair these with fresh fruit, pre-sliced veggies or whole grain crackers for a health meal on the go (literally).

Regardless of the destination this summer, eating right does not have to suffer due to traveling and being “on the go.” Traina Foods offers a number of recipes that are perfectly portable with some pre-planning and prepartion to allow for nutritious and delicious summer snacking and mealtime all season long.
