Most of the time, we are so frenzied with the idea of going on holidays that we forget to be watchful about what we are snacking on during our trips. Staying healthy is equally important to cherish our adventures.
Here, let us see what are the different power foods you can snack upon which will keep you active, energetic and can still tickle your taste buds.
Thepla is a soft Indian flatbread typically made from Gujarati cuisine with a lot of spices and leafy greens (fenugreek leaves) which make them healthy and appetizing.
Thepla is light and handy and can be a good lunch box recipe and a best friend while travelling because of its longer shelf life compared to any Indian flatbread and can be preserved for 3-4 days.
Thepla can be enjoyed with curds, pickle or potato curry or just can be rolled and enjoyed bite by bite. Different versions of Thepla can also be tried like Zucchi Thepla, Cabbage Thepla or Carrot Thepla. It can certainly lift the mood and give enough energy for your ongoing adventures.
Energy bars are a favourite source of nutrition and are available in different options to satiate your palate.
Energy bars usually contain different fruits and nuts which can be a great source of quick energy and also keep you full for long. You can stock up on a few energy bars on the go and can be kept handy when you want instant energy, but do not have time for a meal. Make sure you take enough of them with you and enjoy a quick zip while you are enjoying the trip.
Nut butter is high on energy and has a delectable taste which can be used as a spread on for bread, on Indian flatbreads i.e. chapatis or rotis or can be even experimented with your favourite food by spreading them on cookies or just having a spoonful of it. Nut butter is one of the superfoods which can recharge you after a tough trek or after a long walk or every single type of expedition you get yourself into.
Trail mix is a type of mixture of nuts, dried fruits and/or granola depending upon the mix you would go for, are fun and perfect as the power food for your adventures, hikes or long holidays. Trail mixes are light and are power-packed with instant energy from dried fruits and granola and also support sustained energy from the protein, fibre and fat in the nuts.
The best thing about trail mix is you can make your own according to your choice and preferences or go for the premixed packages available in the market. As they are easy to store, just pack them in an airtight container and you are good to go.
Butter crackers are a little under-rated as being boring or non-exciting, but they become absolutely necessary while you are on the go, travelling or on to your adventure trips. If you have your packet of butter crackers in your backpack with a creamy dip you can indulge into it and once you bite into the flaky, butter taste of the butter crackers there is no stopping. The instant uplift of the taste buds and the mood as well makes them engaging and sheer fun to snack on while you are busy encountering the retreat of nature.
