We’re looking for the next breakthrough in healthy travel. So we partnered with EVENⓇ Hotels to find the next big wellness necessity with a brand new competition called Mission Wellness: Seeking the Next Healthy Travel Innovation. More than 100 businesses gave us their best pitch, and we’ve narrowed down the field to the final 12—which means it’s time for you to get a say! Check out Wanderfuel below (and take a look at the businesses it’s up against), and cast your vote by October 20.


Health food for travelers

The problem

How many times have you ordered the “healthy” meal option on a flight or train ride only to receive a tray containing at least one processed, high-sodium, or gluten-heavy item (or, worst case scenario, one of each)? Unfortunately, travel hubs don’t always have healthful snack or meal options available either, so eating well can seem nearly impossible.

The solution

Wanderfuel organic meal boxes, which are specifically designed to keep you nourished while you travel, are rooted in Ayurvedic principles. The plant-based meals are curated seasonally by a nutritionist and prepared with the time and length of travel in mind (a daytime energy-boosting box, for example, may include a green smoothie bowl with superfood toppings, mushroom coffee, snacks, and supplements). That means you’ll not only feel satisfied, you’ll also step off your flight feeling refreshed and ready to explore.

The takeaway

If you have food allergies or are sick of feeling bloated and groggy after in-flight meals, Wanderfuel’s boxes are a serious savior. May the days of processed snack packs be over.

Could this be the winner? Check out the competition and cast your vote here! (And do it fast—polls close October 20.)
