Man oh man. Is it hard to make healthy choices at airports, or what?! Geezzzzz. For anyone out there that travels for a job, I would love to hear how you eat healthy! It.is.very.difficult. We were obviously at the airport. A lot. Eating healthy before take off, is definitely one of those things that takes a bit of creatively. But…it’s possible [ << no excuses, remember? ].
+ How to Eat Healthy While You’re Traveling:
+ Buffets: if you’re eating at an airport lounge or a buffet, don’t go crazzzzzy. Make your version of pasta salad. Add a handful of veggies to the plate with some noodles & tomato sauce to keep yourself satisfied. Always go for something called muesli [ they normally always have it when traveling internationally ]. It contains tons of fiber; it’s uncooked rolled oats with nuts & fruit. Also incredibly delicious with a few drops of honey & skim milk.
+ Chips: sometimes when you’re famished & exhausted from traveling, chips are a convenient option. Ok, ok, so grab the Pop Chips or wait for it…FRITOS. Fritos are amazing because you can actually pronounce all of its ingredients [ whole corn, corn oil, & salt ]! Only eat packaged food that has ingredients you are familiar with because no one likes gross chemicals.
Soda: eww. Just drink water. Since flying causes bloat, try to flush your system out with tons of aqua. Maybe a Corona Light too ; ).
+ Nuts: per usual, I am always late. So when my plane is about to leave me on the runway, nuts are ideal because they’re convenient. Usually those airport magazine stores carry them.
+ Starbucks: can I just say Starbucks is amazing? Their reduced egg white turkey bacon sandwich is a perfect example. Modification: take one side of bread off & throw it away. Open-faced sandwiches are fab. Grab a green tea w/ no sweetener & you’re set.
Note to all airlines: please provide better options :/ !!

Love these tips! I always try to bring my own healthy snacks but sometimes I run out an it’s a challenge to find/make healthy food at an airport!
These are great tips. It is so hard to eat well when travelling! Thank you for sharing!
This came absolutely convenient since i’m flying to Greece with my girlies this sunday and hate it when I can’t choose a healthy meal or snack! Thanks doll! 😀
totally agree! bringing your own snacks to the airport is key…plus I think it helps getting your eating on vacation off on the right foot!
I bring my refillable water bottle. Leave it empty through security and then fill it up once inside. I have filled it at the soda fountains and even Starbucks filled it up for me after I grabbed a coffee. It’s saves on cash, helps with the bloat of traveling and better for the environment.
