5 travel and holiday-ready snacks to carry on your next trip

The much-awaited summer break is here and we are finally ready to pack our bags, unpack the excitement and thrill of leaving all care behind and simply zip-zap-zoom out of the daily monotony. Whether planning a long break or disappearing for a short while, travelling by land, air or sea, the fun part is always constant – when on holiday, one can eat and binge to one’s heart content. This year’s travel and summer vacation plans may have one added pain point - health caution and consciousness. A major concern while on long-distance travel is always about food. Many of us wonder what to eat and what not to while on a vacay to avoid food poisoning, dehydration, indigestion etc. We don’t wish to see food play a spoilsport with holiday plans. We wish to be guilt-free and stress-free while we holiday. After all, haven’t we all earned this break? (Uriel Mont) 7
