Snacking & Summer Travel Meals Made a Cinch!

However you travel in the Summer, whether by trains, planes, automobiles, trucks, RV’s, motorcycles, bikes, boats and buses, you are going to eat!  I probably left out some forms of transportation, such as camels, but those aren’t going to cross most of our paths as we venture to see the family this summer!  But if you do use a camel or an elephant as transportation, let me know how it works.  Of course some folks like to hike or walk, but not this Southern Belle!

During summer traveling, I plan my food intake carefully.  Since you might have guessed, I do like to eat, so snacking is a challenge.  Snacks can be a good way to keep energy levels up asespotLatteShake 108 x108  72 you travel, especially if you are on a plane and your normal meal schedule is disrupted.   Being attuned to my body’s need for protein and minimal carbohydrates, I keep the Cinch Snack Bars from Shaklee with me along with somlCinchBars 108 x108  72e of the Cinch Shake Packets and a few handfuls of almonds for munching.  These fill me up; give me good vitamins, minerals and lots of good soy protein balanced with some carbs for energy.  Lemon Cranberry Bars are my favorites. Yummy!

Flying is always a challenge for me since meals are often interrupted by the flight schedule. Having had several long “sits” on tarmacs due to weather issues elsewhere,  I now take my snacks with me just in case.  My last flights had me in the air from LA to Atlanta during meal time, with no time for a meal in the Atlanta AilCinchEnergyTea 108 x108  72rport between flights.  So using my Tupperware Quick Shake as a mixing area, the Cinch Shakes mix easy with water and I have an on the go meal.   Along with the Cinch Shakes, I enjoy my Cinch Energy Tea, known as Liquid Oomph!  Easy to add to a serving of water.  A mix of Green, Red and White Teas, in an easy to use “stick”; just open and pour.  Good hot or cold.

So, remember when traveling:  Drink lots of water, keep moving, keep your energy levels up, keep your immune system up and have fun as you travel this summer!

    Great stuff.
    I would never travel without these products. I mean tot he grocery store or shopping.
    That is the place i am most tempted to buy a “quick snack”. So, I keep one of these bars and a couple of cinch teas in my handbag. I cannot tell you how many times they have saved me from bad choices.
    And, because they are economical, it also saves me money.
