2018 Holiday Gift Guide for the World Explorer

I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to travel the last few years to places like Paris, Spain, Sedona, Mexico City, Northern Michigan, and Las Vegas. It’s my goal when I travel to take in the culture and environment around me, try new things, and explore, while also keeping my body as balanced as possible when out of my normal environment + routine.

I’ve found being prepared with snacks, supplements, and things to keep me grounded + remind me of home help me from getting totally thrown off and needing weeks to recover after a trip. Here is my list of travel essentials to help the world traveler in your life prepare for their next big adventure ::

  1. Vibrant Health Green Vibrance Powder :: great for traveling or days you need an extra boost of greens

  2. Vital Proteins Collagen Stick Packs :: great for travel or on-the-go

  3. RX Nut Butter Packets :: vanilla almond butter, honey cinnamon peanut butter, + original perfect addition to snacks on-the-go

  4. Essential Oil Roller :: blends to calm + soothe, digestion, pain, and more!

  5. Handheld Travel Milk Frother :: perfect for making matcha lattes on-the-go

  6. S’well Bottle :: important for staying hydrated - keeps cold fluids cold and hot fluids hot

  7. Travel Wooden Hairbrush :: nourishes your hair by distributing your hair’s natural oils - the travel size is perfectly compact

  8. Health Warrior Pumpkin Seed Protein Bars :: my favorite bars with 8 g of protein + 6 g of sugar
