I love to travel. In fact, I try to have something on the calendar at all times. Though Covid put a brief pause on some of my travel plans I found ways to still get out of town safely! I also love to stay on a healthy regimen no matter where I go. Though airports are getting so much better with healthy options, the actual airlines are a major struggle. I found myself having to pack a small cooler bag just so I could transport certain snacks. The pre-planning was really stressful. That is when I went on a hunt for fully portable, security-friendly, vegan and paleo picks that taste great and get me from point A to point B and keep me from caving on the bag of cookies or pretzels on the plane. Our product picks can literally be thrown in the bag last minute and cover most bases whether you are vegan, vegetarian, paleo and/or keto.
Here are some of our favorite easy travel paleo picks and why:
Lairds Superfood Creamer Unsweetened
I am completely obsessed with this product in my coffee. Lairds Superfood Creamer gives coffee a creamy, coconut flavor that feels more like a treat than a superfood boost. It contains 4 kinds of MCT’s to give your body the fuel it needs for extended energy and fat burning. It also contains a patented multi-mineral complex sourced from marine algae for an additional health boost. With only 40 calories and 1 g of sugar per tablespoon, you can feel guilt free. Lairds makes me feel like I am spoiling myself everyday. It checks all of the boxes for me, as its gluten free, soy free, dairy free, non GMO, vegan, paleo and keto friendly.
There is just something about hummus and chips that never gets old and this completely portable combo is filling, high in fiber and packed with protein.
Rhythm Veggie Chips are that perfect balance of crispy, salty and a tad sweet. Rhythm Veggie Chips are your perfect umami balance. I used to not be a fan of shelf stable hummus, but brands are getting so much more innovative with packaging that the taste has come a long way. Lilly’s is delicious and perfectly packaged for travel.
The consistency of the Bullet Proof Collagen Bars can be a bit crumbly, but the taste is so worth it! For those of you on a strict plant-based diet, this bar is definitely not vegan as it contains bovine collagen sourced from grass-fed cows. These bars are my special treat when I’m want something sweet and need to curb my food cravings during flight. They come in a variety of flavors but my personal favorite is chocolate brownie and lemon shortbread. I always have the best intention of only eating half but they taste so good I can never help myself. The Bullet Proof Collagen Bar is usually devoured in minutes!
Red Miso Soup with Brown Rice Ramen gets thrown in my bag with a reusable spoon. I simply ask for hot water on the plane. It takes about 5 minutes until the rice noodles are perfectly soft. The hearty veggie miso broth that is super filling and low in calories. Though it does require a little more work (asking for a cup of hot water) it is a low maintenance way to have more of a meal than a snack.
This is a favorite of mine because they sell the Ultima Electrolyte Drink in convenient stick packs that you can open and pour into any water bottle. They are vegan, keto and paleo friendly, and 0 calories. This drink is sweetened with a bit of stevia, contains quality vitamins and minerals, and is non GMO. The Ultima Electrolyte Drink tastes amazing. My personal favorite is the raspberry flavor, but I have tried them all. Every flavor tastes great.
