Road Warriors

Special Offer

You've got a concierge in every port and plastic baggies full of 3-ounce shampoo bottles under your sink.

SMART FOOD: Forget packing your lunch—there's barely enough time to pack your suitcase before a flight. Two new meal-replacement bars, Elemental Superfood Seedbars and Raw Revolution, get the stash-worthy stamp of approval from Los Angeles-based nutritionist Elissa Goodman. "They are both raw, so they are easy to digest, while still supplying a balance of protein, carbs, and good fats," explains Goodman. In other words, just what you need to keep your mind off the nachos in Terminal 3.

NO-EXCUSES EXERCISE: Bring your sneakers and download RunKeeper, a favorite of Tracy Benham, exercise physiologist and author of The Best Book on How to Travel Fit. "The app monitors my time and pace while my iPod plays. It uses the GPS to track my course and calories burned, and then stores the information." More than just for running, it can be used for cycling, skiing, swimming, and other activities. Need help finding your way? Try mapmyrun.com, which allows users to share training routes.

MASTER THE MINIBAR: Your late check-in means room service closed hours ago. Heed Snyder's advice before ravaging the minibar: "Even if they aren't ideal items, stick to what was once a vegetable or a nut in some form, like roasted nuts and potato chips. Avoid refined-flour snacks like crackers and pretzels, and candy loaded with artificial dyes, sugary juices, and sodas. Your skin will thank you."
