Hangry: a state of anger caused by hungerSee also, "hanxiety" the panic and aftermath of being hangry. Followed by apologies to friends, family, and co-workers.(tweet this)
After tons of travel this year, I’ve searched dozens of markets around the country, searching for healthy foods that can survive cars, planes, and trains.Here are my favorite finds - all nutrient packed and energizing, while gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free. I hope they rescue you from getting hangry on your next trip!1. Good ‘n’ Real - Cranberry Orange Granola - This stuff is crunchy, filling, and delicious. Orange zest, (gluten-free) buckwheat, pumpkin seeds, nuts, vanilla bean. Yum. It’s 120 calories for ⅓ of a cup and only 1 gram of sugar (from raw honey, dates, apples!).2. Artisana Organic Raw Almond Butter - When you need something heavy, comforting, and rich - this is your go-to snack. Even if you don’t have an apple or banana to put this on - it’s delicious right out of the packet, especially in a pinch when you’re flying etc.3. Living Intentions Gone Nuts Rosemary Garlic Pistachios & Almonds - These are awesome for two reasons. 1) The pouch contains raw pistachios, sprouted almonds, along with organic herbs and spices - the ingredients are high quality and you can taste it. 2) They are very fragrant - this rosemary scent will wake you up (for real - smelling rosemary can make you more alert).4. Amazing Grass Green Superfood Cacao Infusion - These are lifesavers when fresh pressed juice is not available. Pour a packet into a bottle of water and shake it up. If you need a bit of sweetness, add 1/2 cup of coconut water (Harmless Harvest is the best!). The individual servings come nutrient-packed with all your major greens, along with probiotics for a happy stomach. If you have a dessert craving, mix a packet with almond milk and it's a healthy chocolate shake anytime.5. Wellshire Original Tom-Tom's Turkey Snack Sticks - These are easily my boyfriend’s favorite travel snack. They are 99% natural (a bit of casing) with only 1 gram of sugar. Flavorful and filling. No antibiotics and no preservatives.6. Organic Veggie-Go’s Chewy Fruit & Veggie Snacks - These are the answer to adult fruit roll-ups. Our favorite flavor is Mountain Berry Spinach. It includes (all organic) spinach, apples, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and sweet potatoes. One snack is 15 calories and 2 grams of sugar. Perfect when you want something sweet and chewy.XOOh, by the way
