As part of my guest blog series following the International Women’s Day post, I’m excited to add my inspirational friend Elissa Goodman, Holistic Nutritionist & Lifestyle Cleanse Expert. Elissa is the creator of The S.O.U.P Cleanse (Superfoods. Organic. Uniquely Designed. Prepared with Love) the 7-Day RESET, Lunches with Elissa and host of The Elissa Goodman Show. I am honored to know Elissa personally and thrilled to be able to share her important health and wellness information with you each month. After beating Hodgkins Lymphoma and then losing her husband to another cancer, Elissa found her purpose through cleansing the body, healthy nutrition, and leading an overall happier lifestyle through food. In this series I will share with you Elissa’s golden advice for living your best whole life through what you eat so you can glow from the inside out! To kick it off, read on to find out about Elissa’s travel essentials.
We can all look to Elissa to show us how to do the impossible: balance traveling and health. Here are Elissa’s tips and tricks for when you are on the move!
Pre-packed snacks - bringing these eliminates the uncertainty of eating an overpriced snack that probably won’t contain any nutritional ingredients.
Stay hydrated - we often forget about the power of hydration on and off the plane. It is so important for our skin and energy levels to take in more water especially when you’re in the air.
Eat more before - digestion takes more energy while flying, so eating more on the ground is a great way to sustain you throughout the flight rather than eating mid-trip.
Supplements - travelling light is the key, so instead of carrying six different types of vitamins, Elissa recommends taking a multivitamin.
Ground yourself - travelling can be notoriously stressful and hectic, bring items that are grounding such as a few small crystals or stones reminding you to stay calm and charge you with peaceful and positive energy.

Elissa led a stressful and fast-paced life in the business world. Knowing this wasn’t sustainable she decided to make some major holistic lifestyle changes promoting a better recovery and a better life. She knows too well the affect of cancer and sickness on her own life and the lives of those close to her so fully lives by the realization that what you put in your body has the greatest impact on one’s life.
Thankfully, now cancer free, Elissa helps others navigate living their healthiest, holistic and disease free life through the power of nutrition.
