Healthy AIRPLANE Snack Ideas! What a Dietitian Packs!

When you're flying, it's a good idea to have some snacks packed. If your airport has some food items that you love, that's awesome, but there are still some reasons why you might want to bring your own food with you. Maybe you have a tight schedule and won't have time to buy food at the airport. Maybe you don't want to spend money on airport food that is more expensive than what you can buy elsewhere. Maybe you just want to be prepared in case your flight gets delayed or you get stuck on the tarmac for an hour before your plane even takes off. Whatever your reason, packing some snacks with you is a good idea. A lot of people think that you can't bring food through airport security or are unsure about the TSA food rules and regulations. The good news is, food is absolutely allowed and you can bring it through security. The only thing you need to be careful about is any liquid or spreadable foods. They have to follow the same guidelines as any other liquids you're packing. In this video, I'm sharing some of my favorite healthy airplane snacks. These are all easy to pack and you probably have several of them in your kitchen already! I hope these airplane travel snack ideas help you when you're packing for your next flight!

Healthy Road Trip Travel Snack Ideas!

When you're on a road trip, it's a good idea to have some snacks packed. You can always buy food on the road, but there are a few reasons why you might want to pack some food too. Maybe you have a tight schedule and won't have time to stop for food. Maybe your route doesn't have a lot of convenient food options. Maybe you don't want to spend money on food that is more expensive than what you can pack yourself. Maybe you just want to be prepared in case you find yourself stuck in traffic or you have to take an unexpected detour. Whatever your reason, packing some snacks with you is a good idea. The good thing about packing road trip snacks is that you have lots of room to pack whatever you want, including bringing a cooler for cold items, and you don't have the restrictions on liquids that you do when flying. In this video, I'm sharing some of my favorite healthy road trip travel snacks. These are all easy to pack and you probably have several of them in your kitchen already! I hope these road trip snack ideas help you when you're packing for your next trip!

September Garden Update and Harvest! LOTS of Peppers! | Rare and Heirloom Varieties

It's time for another garden update! September is coming to an end and there are some exciting and disappointing things happening in the garden. The peppers are looking great and we're getting rips fruits from all of the varieties now! Plus, some of the peppers are so productive that I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of them!

- Ahi Chinchi Amarillo pepper

HEALTHY GROCERY HAUL! What a Dietitian Buys at the Store!

Ever wonder what a dietitian or nutritionist buys at the grocery store? Today, I'm showing you! In this video I'm showing you my healthy grocery haul from this week's shopping trip to Wegmans! This grocery haul is a good example of what my grocery shopping is like in the summer. Now that we are in farmers market and gardening season, I buy a lot less at the grocery store. Most of my produce is coming from the farmers market and garden right now, so the store is just for filling in the gaps and getting the items I can only get at the store. I'm shopping for two people, me and my husband, but I think you'll find this helpful (or at least interesting) no matter how many people you're grocery shopping for in your house.

Coconut Oil is PURE POISON?! | Registered Dietitian

The latest nutrition headline to take over the new is "Harvard professor says coconut oil is pure poison." I've been seeing it everywhere and I know you have to, so we're going to talk about it. This sort of this is annoying and frustrating for me because it's food fear-mongering and contributes to all of the confusion and anxiety that so many people have when it comes to food and nutrition. I have a lot of thoughts on this whole situation and I think it's important to also talk about coconut oil and health and why someone might say something like this. Let's get into it.
