10 Travel Hacks to Bring Bulletproof on the Road

Traveling is all fun and games until you’re hangry in the car and haven’t had a full night’s sleep in three days. Fortunately, these travel hacks (directly from the Bulletproof team!) will make your next trip 100% easier. From combating jet lag to staying fueled between flights, here are just a few ways you can bring Bulletproof products anywhere.
1. Travel with coffee beans
Plenty of hotels have coffee, but that doesn’t mean it’s tasty coffee. If you want to guarantee you’ll have access to certified coffee that’s tested for toxins, bring it with you.
- If you’re heading somewhere with a coffee maker, pack a bag of Ground Coffee Beans (no coffee grinder required).
- If you have access to a Keurig, stash a few Coffee Pods in your bag.
2. Use InstaMix to turn any coffee into creamy Bulletproof Coffee
A rich and creamy cup of Bulletproof Coffee starts with MCT oil, grass-fed butter, coffee and a blender. That’s great at home, but you can’t exactly lug all that stuff around on the road … which is why many Bulletproof team members travel with packets of InstaMix.
InstaMix turns any cup of black coffee into Bulletproof Coffee, no blender required. Each packet consists of powdered grass-fed butter and Brain Octane MCT oil. It mixes easily in hot drinks and gives you a delicious cup of coffee that keeps you fueled for hours — perfect when you’re on the road and want something satisfying.
3. Use Sleep Mode to get your Zzzs in any time zone
“Sleep Mode is a must for hotels,” says Tara S. on the Bulletproof Product team. Why? Sleep Mode is a drug-free way to support your circadian rhythms and sleep better, faster. That’s really, really important when you’re on the road, flying from coast to coast or dealing with uncomfortable hotel beds (or all of the above).
4. Collagen Protein Bars are go-to road trip snacks
Snacks can make or break your travel plans. Fortunately, Collagen Protein Bars are totally delicious and made with clean ingredients that will actually keep you satisfied, like quality fats and grass-fed collagen protein.
5. Feeling foggy after a flight? Power up with KetoPrime and Unfair Advantage
High altitude plus low air pressure can make you feel tired and unfocused. That’s because your mitochondria (the power plants of your cells) aren’t getting enough oxygen, so they ramp down energy production and you feel blah.
Bulletproof team members swear by KetoPrime and Unfair Advantage when they need to stay sharp after a flight or mind-numbing drive. KetoPrime contains oxaloacetate, a metabolic compound that supports your mitochondria to get you back on track. Unfair Advantage helps repair your mitochondria and gives you an energy boost.
6. Protect against toxins and stress with Glutathione Force
Good news: Your body naturally produces a powerful antioxidant called glutathione. The bad news is that your environment, food and stress can drain your glutathione stores. Travel can be stressful, and food on the road can be … questionable. That’s why Glutathione Force is one of our favorite supplements, whether we’re heading out or staying home.
7. Bring Bulletproof anywhere with Collagen and Brain Octane oil GoPacks
It’s easy to stay Bulletproof on the go with travel-friendly, single-serve packs of Brain Octane oil and grass-fed Collagen Protein. GoPacks are made for travel so you can throw them in your bag without worrying about leaks or messes.
Brain Octane oil is C8 MCT oil, aka the all-around best MCT oil for brain-boosting, fat-burning ketone energy. Collagen Protein supports hydrated skin and strong bones and joints. Here’s how to use them on the road:
Brain Octane GoPacks:
- Drizzle over food when you’re dining out for a quick boost of energizing ketones
- Add to a travel mug of coffee, close the lid and shake it up for fat-burning, brain-boosting coffee (We recommend a Bulletproof Travel Tumbler)
- Use a handheld frother to blend it into your favorite beverages
Collagen Protein GoPacks:
- Support your skin, joints and bones on the go
- Stir into hot or cold beverages, oatmeal or soup — it’s flavorless and dissolves easily
- Combine with Brain Octane oil for collagen benefits with a ketone boost
8. Power through your fast with Brain Octane oil
Some members of the Bulletproof team prefer to fast on travel days. That means eating within a specific time period and fasting the rest of the time. Why skip breakfast? There are a ton of benefits of intermittent fasting, like weight management, steady energy and improved brain function. Fasting also means you don’t have to think about food while you’re traveling. Phew!
Brain Octane oil is a satiating fat that curbs cravings, so it’s a great hack to hold you over between meals. Quality fats give you energy and keep you full without switching on digestion, so you’ll still get all the benefits of fasting without feeling hangry.
Pro tip: Drink Bulletproof Coffee instead of eating breakfast. Brain Octane oil + grass-fed butter or ghee + coffee = a creamy, satisfying drink that keeps you full, focused and energized for hours. Get the recipe here.
9. Use Coconut Charcoal to combat the effects of kryptonite foods
Let’s say you overindulged during a night out. Maybe breakfast at the hotel wrecked your stomach. Or maybe you just need gas relief — fast. Coconut Charcoal is your detox shortcut. It traps toxins and flushes them out of your body naturally. Plus, it’s gentle, fast-acting and made from 100% coconuts. It’s perfect when you’re on the road and need fast relief so you can get back to feeling awesome.
10. Support healthy digestion with InnerFuel Prebiotic
It can be tough to hit your daily fiber goals throughout the day, let alone eat enough vegetables when you’re traveling. InnerFuel Prebiotic is a great way to help maintain regular digestion when it’s tough to eat enough fiber-rich foods. After all, clamshells of salads at the gas station can only take you so far. InnerFuel is a gentle, plant-based prebiotic powder that mixes easily in drinks. Add it to coffee or plain water and feel good about your gut health — even on the road.
