- Eating healthy on a road trip
It’s not much difficult to pack food with you while going on a road trip like chips, sodas, bread and stuff. But let’s move to something healthier.
Enroute your trip to roads that involve restaurants and stations and choose healthy food over the junk. Go for the fruits instead of burgers and pizzas. Drop at a restaurant for healthy breakfast including oatmeal, bran muffins, and omelette, protein bars during the way, fruit juices and more.
Bring plenty of water, packed sandwiches, a cooler filled with fruits and vegetables and a container full of dry fruits with cashews, walnuts, almonds and the like.
- Eating healthy while travelling through the air
The pre-ordered food provided by most airlines is healthy and you can stick to it. However, in case, they don’t provide, then make sure that you keep healthy refreshments ready.
Prefer going by your daily routine meal. Eat a little in the vicinity of the airport. Look for the meals allowed during the flight and pack them accordingly. Here are the guidelines followed by the airlines when it comes carrying your own meal. You can carry:
- 3.4 ounces of liquid or gel substances like sauce, jam, salad dressing, cream cheese etc.
- Fresh fruits, vegetables, and berries
- Nuts and dried fruits
- Honey and sweet syrups
- Cakes and pastries
- Crackers, chips, and sandwiches
- Yoghurt, protein bars
For a better understanding, you can take everything with you that isn’t messy and doesn’t have a strong aroma.
- Eating healthy while travelling by train
The food you carry on a train journey depends on the length of your journey. The proves to be most comfortable when it comes to having food as you have a decent amount of space to eat your food in.
Pack perishable dishes if you are on a short journey. If you can pack everything nicely, you can stick to your normal meal. Like those square-shaped containers for packing bread and tissues are most important. Keep a knife with you if you are carrying fruit. Carrying a spoon is must!
- Eating healthy on a ship cruise
A good cruise provides a delectable meal and you don’t have to worry about your tummy while travelling. However, you can still choose to carry your own food especially if you are a pure-vegetarian.
Pack non-messy food in a hygienic way. You can take a look at the food provided by the liner in advance and pack yours accordingly.
Eat in balance, don’t overeat even if they provide tasty dishes. Further, plan well in advance as to what all delicacies you will be eating so that you don’t overeat.
