When I travel, I never leave without my essentials … my survival kit. Even before the toiletries, I make sure that I have the following products to help me stay healthy on the go:
1. Vitamin C drink – I have used different brands, but my current is still the slender packets from Whole Foods’ 365 line. I typically drink this while on the plane and take extra packets for the rest of my trip. Just pour into a glass of water and you’ll feel like you’re warding off any and all airborne diseases.
2. Travel Matcha Tea — I have written previously about the joys of matcha travel packets. These are from a lovely store in St. Germain, Lupicia. The tin case that holds 10 packets is fantastic.
3. Natural Calm Magnesium drink — Keep stress at bay with these little packets of magic. Pour into a glass of warm or hot water. Bonus: Magnesium also seems to help out with any digestive craziness. (I like the “Original” flavor.)
4. Pana Cacao Dark Chocolate Eighty — I know 80% seems high but this is hands down one of the best dark chocolates out there. Smooth, rich, sweet but not too much. There are treats and then there are treats!
