The Fast Diet / Travel

Kick off your holiday with a healthy start

Travelling to a warmer destination to escape the English ‘summer’? I don’t blame you, this weather is ridiculous!

Airport snack ideas

Whenever I travel I find it so hard to resist picking up some unhealthy snacks in the airport prior to boarding my flight, thus undoing my hard work pre-holiday to squeeze into a swimsuit – or I’ll get stuck into a celebratory glass of bubbly at the airport bar before jetting off. Not good.

According to nutritionist Sarah West, keeping pre-flight and in-flight snacks light and healthy is best to ensure you arrive at your destination feeling fabulous.

I’ve found a handy guide online that outlines some smart snacking options at London’s Luton Airport and I’m pleased to see that one of my favourite Fast Diet snacks, the low-salt Miso Soup from Pret A Manger, makes an appearance as a ‘good option’.

What sort of travel snacker are you? Do you gorge before you board, or think twice before reaching for the salty peanuts?

  1. Great chart — thanks for sharing. I try to stick to water when traveling, though I’ll have the occasional coffee in the airport or on a long (transatlantic) flight if I need to stay awake. If I’m traveling by train, I try to make sandwiches at home and take along carrot sticks and apples. I always try to have an emergency granola/energy bar or two in my bag, just in case. Trail mix (nuts, dried fruit, chocolate pieces) is also good for the long haul.

Let me know what you think!
