Whether you're getting ready to hit the slopes, a sunny island, or have a day of endless meetings, when preparing for a long flight you'll need to pack some healthy and filling snacks to help you power through your travel day. Keeping a healthy snack on hand during travel is essential, especially if kids are involved!
Our go-to snack for being on the go? Protein balls of course! These bite-sized treats are packed full of all the good stuff that helps to keep you energized on business trips or the pleasure of a vacation. No more spending five dollars on an unhealthy bar at the airport that winds up half eaten in your bag
Now with all the hustle and bustle of a busy day, we don't expect you to make your treats on the go (although that would be pretty impressive). So, we've compiled a list of the best tips and tricks to travel with your balls.
1. Creation Nation Pouches
At Creation Nation, we're allllll about providing a healthy and nutritious alternative to pre-packaged protein snacks. Not only do our protein powder mixes help in our mission to make the world a healthier place (one ball at a time), but they support our eco-mission as well! Our balls and bars can be stored in our reusable pouch! How easy is that?
2. Washable Containers
A classic go-to travel companion - tupperware! Any washable container, whether it's plastic or glass, is a great way to pack up your snack. These are an especially helpful travel option, if you're looking to just throw the container in a bag - no smushed balls!
Looking to go the plastic-free route for storing your food? We don't blame you! Luckily, there are some pretty great companies looking to make a drastic change in the world of non-plastic, sustainable food storage. Lunch Skins , Bee's Wrap and Stasher Bags all eliminate the issue of plastic sandwich bag pollution, straight from your kitchen! These wraps are completely food safe and are an easy way to pack up your protein ball snacks for the road!
BONUS: you won't have to worry about any kids breaking these wraps, unlike a glass container! PLUS they perfectly fit in your pocket - a great slope snack.
4. Mason Jars
Mason Jars are all the rage nowadays, and we get why! They're SO handy. We love showing off our protein bar mix creations, so why not pop them into a trendy jar that'll make your co-workers ask for a bite. Fill them with a variety of balls or try our famous Protein Bar Jar recipes.
5. A Tackle Box
Now this travel hack may confuse everyone... until you open it up! Using a tackle box for roadtripping with your snacks is a handy hack, especially if you've got a variety of snacks going on. The adjustable dividers are helpful when dealing with snacks of different sizes and different flavours. So when you want to keep your mixed balls separate, a tackle box is the way to go.
Now we're not advising anyone to mix your balls with your bait, so make sure it's a NEW tackle box! No one likes their protein balls with a hint of perch.
