Virginie’s favorites: my top 10 travel essentials
Are you planning on going away on vacation soon? Here are ten product suggestions to put in your suitcase for staying healthy while away from home!
This 70% raw vegan bar is free of soy, nuts and gluten. I like it for its fibre and protein content (12g and 8g respectively) and its very short list of ingredients. It is a no brainer as a breakfast substitute or as a snack before an outdoor workout!
Made with organic Sultana grapes, cashews, toasted hazelnuts and almonds, this sweet and savoury mix is the perfect snack for outdoor activities! You can also use these nuts and dried fruits as garnish on your smoothies, chia puddings and yogurt parfaits.
These protein supplements are ideal for when you are on the go. Just bring a small portable blender (like Magic Bullet) and use the fruits you have in reach to make yourself a meal replacement or a nutritious snack in a jiffy!
Do you like to move even on hot summer days? Add this powder to your water to help your body regenerate the essential electrolytes and the minerals evacuated by perspiration. Drink it throughout the day to recharge your body, or before, during and after physical exertion.
If there is one product that is essential to maintain good intestinal health while traveling, it is undoubtedly a probiotic supplement. Be sure to bring some with you, especially if you plan to travel overseas!
In addition to promoting digestion and eliminating gas, activated charcoal is known to be a potent antidote. This detox product fights against parasites, bacteria and various viruses that you could catch. A must-have product when on vacation!
Disinfect and naturally clean the ambient air and space (furniture and accessories) where you stay this summer. Slip in your luggage this vaporizer made with essential oils of lavender, tea tree and lemon.
Out of respect for the nature that welcomes you when you go camping, make sure to add natural products to your travel kit. My discovery: this body and hair soap with rosemary, lemongrass, geranium and lavender.
These two 100% natural travel-sized products – with soothing, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties – will be practical to relieve and heal the insect bites incurred during your vacation.
Why do I love this sunscreen? Because it is made of natural and reassuring ingredients. Not to mention that it is easy to apply, smooth, it penetrates the skin well … and has a pleasant fruity scent!
