Keeping Healthy on the Road

One of the pleasures—and hazards—of frequent travel is all of the fantastic meals along the way. And although, Foodie that I am, I enjoy every bit of it and try to eat as healthy as possible, I (willingly) succumb to a lot more calories and a lot less fruit and veggies on the road. So, in addition to drinking a lot of water and taking my vitamins, I take a few Flax Paks along.

Ready-to-eat, organic, and available in convenient, portable, single-serving packets, the Flax Paks are rich in omega 3s, fiber, antioxidants, and minerals. And because the flax is milled instead of chopped, it mixes easily into smoothies, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, salads, casserole dishes and more. If you’re sensitive to grainy textures or chalky flavors, you’ll find that once mixed in, you barely notice it’s there. The company also makes a Flax Chia blend, a Flax Hemp Blend, and other healthy products, all of which are organic. So who says you can’t stay regular, and healthy, when on the go?!


Pocket Monkey

Back in the day when I was young, the catch-all, must have, multi-utility item was a Swiss Army knife. And although it was small enough to fit in a pocket or purse, it still had a little bit of weight to it and stuck out. Nowadays, I’m not even sure you can take it past some security checkpoints.

Not to worry, because now there’s Pocket Monkey. Made of hardened stainless steel heat treated to 4X normal strength and weighing only one ounce, Pocket Monkey slips right into any wallet credit card slot or into a pocket or purse, and is TSA-compliant. And, it serves an astounding 12 functions: bottle opener, flat screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, micro screwdriver, phone kickstand, hex wrenches, orange peeler, door latch slip, earbuds cord wrap, letter opener, ruler and straight edge. According to Zootility Tools which makes Pocket Monkey, “It is the functional gadget that even MacGyver would love.”

Now if I could only get it back from teenager #1 who snatched it up the moment I got it…

More travel necessities are on the way.
