Did ya miss me?! I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve popped in and created something new for you! I know I say it a lot, but oh my goodness, you guys – life has been crazy! Between my demanding class schedule, online nutrition school, grad school apps, and several jobs, I’ve barely had any time to sit down and write something that I knew I would be proud of.
Over the last few days, I had the opportunity to travel by plane – something that’s almost entirely foreign to me! I went to Omaha, Nebraska for a couple days and actually really enjoyed myself and exploring the city a little bit. I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I brought to Nebraska with me to help keep my health in tip-top shape. For all of you healthy foodies, I hope you enjoy checking out all of the healthy goodies I packed!
This is one of my favorite things to pack when I’m on my way to class, work, or even across the country! LiquidIV is perfect if you struggle with hydration. I’m ashamed to admit, but I’m one of those people that struggles to drink enough water, especially when I’m on the go. These hydration packets make me feel so much more hydrated, and they keep me feeling my best! I knew I wouldn’t have much access to water when on my flights, so I packed a few of these packets to help me stay hydrated while traveling.
These vitamin packs are perfect for travel! I love my Care/of vitamins because not only can I customize my packs, but they’re also relatively affordable and super convenient for people on the go! Rather than taking entire bottles of vitamins, or taking the time to separate my vitamins into little baggies, Care/of helps save space in carry-ons, and helps cut down on pack time!
[PS: Care/of was super kind and is offering 50% off your first order! Just use the code ARI50]
I love love love bars. I always have a stash of bars to grab on the go. I knew I’d be hungry with all of my flights over the two day period, so I packed a couple of these yummy new Square Organics Crisp Protein Bars to keep me fueled! My favorite flavor is the toasted coconut – but they’re all super yummy, and have the perfect amount of crunch!

I’ve always heard that you should pack gum if you’re going to be flying! Apparently, chewing gum helps to “pop” your ears when the pressure gets too high! I packed some of this natural gum to help with that situation, and to keep my breath fresh! I packed a ginger and a mint, and I was super pleased with these! Natural gum isn’t something you cross by often, so finding these at my local grocery store was perfect!
Do I even need to explain this to y’all? You should know by now how crazy I am about all things collagen! It’s hard to find space for a tub of collagen powder in a carry on (which is all I had with me), so I stopped by Whole Foods to get these convenient little packets! I also had some collagen beauty water packets left over from a package from my sweet friend, Hannah!
Epic has the BEST jerky, hands down! The ingredients are amazing and the flavors are out of this world. Their jerky is my favorite snack when I’m craving something savory, so I absolutely had to pack some of their jerky strips for my travels! If you haven’t tried them yet, the turkey sage & salmon maple flavors are my absolute favorite!
So I wasn’t just traveling to Omaha for fun – I had something super important to do while I was there, and I knew it was going to require me to be super alert and focused! So I packed a few packets of Four Sigmatic’s Cordyceps & Chaga Coffee, and their Lion’s Mane Elixir! If you haven’t heard of the powerful benefits of mushrooms yet, stay tuned for a blog post all about ’em. 😉
I also had a few packs of almond butter packets with me as well! I absolutely love these nut butter packets for fuel on the go! Some of my other favorites are Crazy Richard’s, and Wild Friends! You can never go wrong with a packet of nut butter to replenish your protein and healthy fats!
I hope you enjoyed this little compilation of the healthy travel items I packed for my trip! What are your go-to healthy travel essentials?
Until next time, which will hopefully be much sooner than last time! : )
