June 1st can mean two things – beginning of summer travels and beginning of the hurricane season. To help you be prepared for both, I want to offer you my Z-tips for healthy foods to stock up on. They are great to take with you on the road, to the airport or to enjoy when you are at home without electricity.
Snacks to keep your hydrated
When flying, many people experience dry skin and slight swelling due to the cabin pressure and low humidity. To help you with that, I suggest bringing oranges and bananas on your flight. Their high potassium content will help you keep fluid in your body regulated and the vitamins and antioxidants can boost your immune system on crowded flights. Also, these fruits have a thick peel that makes them easy to transport and eat. If you are stocking up for a hurricane, these are great to have on hand as well since there is no hand-washing needed.
Get your greens on
Travel and tropical storms can be stressful and healthy dark leafy greens may be hard to find. If you find yourself needing a nutritional boost, I recommend stocking up on energy bars with greens. One of my favorite is the chocolate-covered Greens + CHIA bar that you can buy at Whole Foods on Glades Road or online. This bar has great flavor, it is full of immune-system boosting nutrients and it has chocolate! http://greensplus.com/index.php/cPath/84_186)
Fill up on Carbs
To get an energy boost and help you stay away from airport pretzels and potato chips, try the Mary’s Gone Crackers. They are my favorite-tasting brown rice crackers and they are full of good carbohydrates and healthy fats. Take the whole box or portion them out in Tupperware containers, and then pack in your carry-on luggage. If you are buying in bulk, try getting them at Costco to save yourself extra money.
