Whether you’re headed off on an exotic vacation adventure or simply headed out to run a million errands around town, you need fuel – preferably something portable you can tuck into a purse, cooler or backpack. If hunger strikes when you’re far from home, don’t panic and hit up the drive-thru! Instead, try one of these easy-to-make, energizing snacks.

6 Healthy Travel Snacks
Make your own nut butter and jelly sandwich with all-natural raw almond butter.

Pack any of these Vega snacks for wherever your warm heart and wandering eyes take you:

  1. Nutrient-Dense Trail Mix

A staple that never gets old. Upgrade your standard peanut and raisin trail mix by adding superfoods like goji berries, mulberries, SaviSeeds and pumpkin seeds.

  1. AB & J

Move over, PB&J. Spread almond butter with a fruit juice-sweetened jam on sprouted grain toast for a light meal or snack that’s convenient, melt-proof and packed with vitamins and minerals. Feeling extra adventurous? Make your own quick jam.

  1. Vega Snack Bar

Mid-day munchies can pull your mind away from the task at hand (even if that task is relaxing on the beach). Hang tight and fuel up with a Vega Snack Bar. This non-GMO superfood bar is gluten-free and made from whole-food ingredients. While we drool over Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup when we’re stuck behind a computer desk, Coconut Almond and Salted Caramel are better when packed into a hot summer tote.

  1. Vega One Meal Bar

Stuck in a place where your only lunch options are deep fried? While we’re always down for the occasional treat, sometimes you want a little more balance in your day—without sacrificing taste. Solution? Reach for a Vega One Meal Bar. Indulge and relax knowing you’ve covered your nutritional bases with satisfying layers of chocolate-dipped goodness. Made from plant-based, whole food, non-GMO ingredients this convenient meal bar is packed with complete plant-based protein, fiber, omega-3s and greens.  Plus you’ll get an antioxidant boost with vitamins and minerals.

  1. Vega Sport Energy Bar

If you’re gearing up for a hike or backpacking trip, don’t forget to pack a Vega Sport Energy Bar. Easily digestible and great tasting, this bar will help to fuel your hot summer activities. Carbohydrates from dates give you instant energy, while SaviSeed oil and almonds help to sustain that energy for the long haul.

  1. Vega Sport Protein Bar

If you’re pulling yourself out of the pool after a grueling training session and only have 15 minutes to shower, pack up and start tackling your errand list, reach for a Vega Sport Protein Bar. Your muscles will get the protein (plus BCAAs and glutamine) that they crave, while its great taste will leave you satisfied until you get to sit down for a full meal.
