It’s easy for you to fold on your healthy eating whilst traveling. It could be a vacation somewhere, a constant rush of many different activities (Having you walk, drive, run, and crawl from A to Z) or just strictly business.
Whatever it is for you, maintaining healthy eating habits whilst on the road can be a big challenge.
It’s at this point the ever present fast- food outlets can be very tempting for you / eating unhealthy snacks and beverages. To some it may seem unreachable, unclimbable but fear not Di’1s..
I have some tips to help you eat healthy whilst traveling on the road!
Pack Your Own Snacks And Meals- You can do this one on any mode of transport of your choice.
This ensures you are not reliant on airline foods which typically don’t taste very nice for one and two you are unsure what is exactly in the food they are providing you with.
It’s really inexpensive and all you really need are some containers and flasks.
DID YOU KNOW- Trail mix ( No chocolate ones), Fruit, Greek yoghurt and some Sandwiches are very simple and easy to pack foods whilst on the road.
Drink Water- Like always get your water right. Stop with the excuses, It’s just as easy to find a place with running water as it is to find your local bar to drink alcohol! It’s so easy to get dehydrated on the road so it’s important you (Drink Up)
DID YOU KNOW- Drinking water really helps you with travel- related health conditions such as jet lag.
Stay Mindful- Please, I would like a show of hands, who wants indigestion, low energy and an upset stomach ?
If you’re eating unhealthy foods whilst traveling you’re at a higher risk of getting all of these, to be honest it won’t make any of your traveling fun.
So if you did ignore the first tip make sure you are mindful of your options and buy healthy.
Avoid Fast-Food Outlets- You would think this would go without saying but I will say it just in case. Please for your own weight loss goals, and general health period don’t do it!
It’s really sad to me that places like Mcdonalds remain as an option of choice for many across the world, when they – and places like them – have high fat ( the bad ones) added sugar and calories in their products.
If you decided to eat at a restaurant, a real one not Mcdonalds! Then focus on eating the healthy meals provided… such as lean proteins and your veggies.
If that seems stressful to you, then the first tip applies.
DID YOU KNOW- Fast-food outlets are making you sick and unhappy, and if you don’t stop it will escalate.
Don’t forget to eat breakfast- This seems to me like one of the biggest mistakes that people make pursuing their general weight loss goals.
This is a rookie’s mistake.. as this is the first thing you will be eating, what you eat will set you up for the rest of the day but if you eat poorly or in this case nothing at all! You’re heading for disaster.
You may laugh, but breakfast to me is like breathing, it has to happen every time – no excuses!
If your hotel offers you complimentary breakfast, choose a high fibre and protein meal, such as whole grain toast with peanut butter. Foods such as this will fill you up until lunch time, no you say? That’s why you packed your own snacks right… eat up!
