Airport Food Navigation

Meal selection may not be ideal depending on where you are travelling, but it doesn’t mean you have to put your goals on stand-by! Planning ahead is important to stay on track with your goals, so here’s some tips and tricks that I apply when I’m travelling.

Thanks to My Macros+ I can track my intake while on Airplane Mode! (unfortunately, MyFitnessPal doesn't work without internet connection.) I grabbed a simple teppanyaki bowl and asked for extra protein (chicken & shrimp) and no cooking oil (although I know there is still some) and guesstimated P30 C15 F8.

Snacks available at the airport: • trail mix / dried fruit / nuts & seeds • granola & protein bars • hardboiled eggs (hello protein!) • salads with dressing on the side • veggies/crackers & hummus dip


Options you can bring through security: • convenient clean bars from JiMMY! • sample size protein powder from Canadian Protein • sample size BCAAs from Canadian Protein


Safe travels!
