1. Your last-minute packing companion: Sunsweet Probiotic+ Prunes

One thing worse than last-minute packing? Being hungry. Cue Sunsweet Probiotic+ Prunes to satisfy your hunger and with elderberry flavor and BC30 Probiotic and prebiotic fiber they even support your digestive and immune wellness. Asche suggests pairing with almond butter for a boost of protein.

2. Your travel day brekkie: Oatmeal & Prune Muffins with Blueberries

With less added sugar than traditional muffins and protein from Greek yogurt, these muffins can help fuel your travel. Why? “Along with fiber from prunes, protein can help keep you full and satisfied as you travel,” highlights Asche.

3. Your unsung spring break hero: Hydration

Asche cautions while people commonly avoid drinking fluids on long car or plane rides, this can backfire by increasing the risk of dehydration and digestive issues.
