How To Make Green Smoothies While Traveling

Green smoothies have fabulous benefits for the human bodies: they prevent kidney stones, provide a feeling of fullness and fight bowel problems. Also, they help with mitigation of the gastric acid’s reflux. But how can we maintain our helthy habits when we can’t enjoy the confort of our homes? How to make green smoothies while traveling, regardless the travels are for business or pleasure? Check out some helpful tips in the following post.

Book Hotel Rooms With Mini-Refrigerators

This step is usually easy to complete and requiers minimum effort. A mini-refrigerator keeps the essential smoothie ingredients ( leafy greens, milk, fruits and veggies) crisp and fresh. If you have a supermarket close to the hotel, buying all the ingredients will take little time and serving at least one healthy meal per day won’t be a challenge.

Mini Smoothie Travel Kit

To prevent spending more money than neccessary, before packing all your bags, take time to make this mini smoothie travel kit: a small cutting mat, a spoon for measuring,  a small knife, a plastic cup- even better one of those container cups for smoothies “to go”, a roll of paper towels to wipe any drips or spills. If you use special powders to flavor your smoothies (Wheatgrass Powder, Camu Powder, Acai Powder, Goji Powder, etc)  make sure to add those too.
