Traveling as a healthy eater is certainly not easy. From processed airline foods to limited choices to take on board with you, it can be a challenge to eat healthy during your travels.

Nicole Renard on TikTok shared an easy hack to ensure that you can eat healthy no matter where you are.

@nicole_thenomad Saving $$ on bfast gives me extra for a treat & ensures at least one of my meals is healthy lol #travelhack #healthyliving #healthybreakfast #fyp ♬ Only girl in september – veggibeats

Instant oatmeal packets are so convenient to bring with you on the go. You can ask the stewardess for hot water to make your oatmeal, and you can even bring your favorite toppings such as granola, nuts, and dried fruit. Nicole also shared the idea of turning the oatmeal wrapper into a makeshift spoon if there’s none on board. Just make sure to store them in a completely sealed package or quart-size baggie to be allowed on the plane. And if you have a dreaded flight delay at an airport and find yourself starving, you’ll feel good knowing you’re prepared and don’t have to spend a fortune on a small meal or snack.

This tip won’t just save you money, but will also give your body something it’s used to, so you’ll feel well during your trip with plenty of energy.

Healthy eating keeps you looking and feeling your best, boost mental focus, and supports your digestion, which is already under a bit of stress while you’re out of your usual routine. The next time you’re jetting off on a vacation or a road trip, you’ll be glad you remembered this hack!
