Flora 7 Sources Oil Getting high-quality plant-based essential fatty acids on the road can be tough so I fill a couple 3 oz. bottles with this oil and pack them with my liquid toiletries. Two to three tablespoons a day makes sure I am getting my Omegas.
Green Magma Barley Juice Powder While on the go, access to fresh greens and veggies can be limited, so I get my greens plus a dose of vitamins and minerals with Green Magma. Having a powdered form is super convenient and I take one tablespoon with 6 oz. of water in the morning.
Pea & Brown Rice Protein Powder I always pack a ziplock bag with a blend of pea and brown rice protein. By mixing the two I ensure I am getting the full range of essential amino acids. For a quick protein hit, I mix 2 to 3 tablespoons with Clif Shot Electrolyte Drink.
Clif Kit’s Organic Fruit & Nut Bars I make sure I throw a few of these gluten-, soy-, and dairy- free bars in my bag. They’re are all-organic, whole-food-based, and tasty!
