Are you planning a family vacation, or anticipate going on a long-distance business trip?
Maintaining healthy eating habits while traveling can be a challenge. Avoiding unhealthy foods is difficult, but it is not impossible with a strong will and the proper preperation. You must remember to eat healthy and mindfully while travelling to keep your good health while you are enjoying holiday.
In most cases, food is allowed on various forms of transportation. Therefore, you can pack easy to go meals such as vegetable sandwiches that are light to eat and easy to carry and keeps you full. You can also carry healthy snacks such as dried fruits and nuts mix.
Some of the options are shelled pistachios, raisins and almonds. Mix them and keep them in a airtight bag and there you go, you have a healthy snack to munch on when you are hungry. These nuts contain high fiber, they keep you full and are healthy and light too.
You can also carry fruits such as bananas and apples, they are easy to carry and are rich sources of carbohydrates and vitamins and minerals. They provide a lot of energy, which is helpful when you are travelling. If you want some protein and yet the food has to be light then go for a turkey sandwich. Place a low sodium turkey breast between whole grain breast with mustard sauce. If you do not have the time to prepare these things then you can carry healthy food bars that are high on protein and minimal amount of sugar.
Most travelers sit and wait at the airport terminals and bus or train stations. They just buy whatever foods vendors have available. This is not good, one should look around to find more healthier options. Almost all the airport terminals, bus and trains stops have healthy foods selling.
If you are travelling by airplane that is serves meals, then you must call the airlines in advance and check what they serve onboard. Most or the airlines do consider the health needs of the passengers and offer low fat, low sodium, vegan food etc. If they do not offer them then you always have the option of packing your own healthy food.
Apart from just the food, you also need to keep in mind that you stay hydrated while travelling. Humidity can take its toll on you so drink plenty of water and fluids to stay hydrated or you can experience headaches, cramps, fatigue etc. You can carry herbal tea bags such as ginger and chamomile to prevent nausea and stomach upsets. Apart from the food in the airplanes, you also need to be careful about what you eat at your destination place. If you have no idea where to dine then you can use your smart phone apps and find a good local restaurant. You can even ask the locals about the cuisine.
Before you dine at a restaurant, check the menu online in advance. Eat low fat foods such as meat and fish that are steamed, boiled, baked, grilled or poached. If you are a vegan, choose veggies that are steamed over fried ones. If you do not want to eat bland food, you can ask for dressings, cream, cheese etc. Make sure you avoid alcohol, if you cannot completely avoid it, then you can limit yourself to a glass of wine or a light beer.
The last thing you want while travelling is stomach upset or indigestion. Therefore, eat healthy, high-fiber foods and make travelling easy and fun for you and your family.continue...
