Tips To Stay Healthy On The Go

November 7 2017

If you travel on a regular basis, whether if it’s for work or pleasure, you’ll know how hard it is to stay committed to your health and fitness goals.

So here are four tips to help you stay healthy while traveling:

1. Research

Take the time to research places to go and eat before you arrive at your destination. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, find out if there’s a healthy vegetarian or vegan restaurants and cafes beforehand so you don’t get stuck.

2. Book a Room with a Kitchen

Booking accommodation that has access to a kitchen can be helpful so you can cook your own food. Eating out for three meals a day can be expensive. It might taste good, but it’s never as healthy as what you’ll cook at home.

3. Shop Local

Find a local farmer’s market or grocery stores for your local fresh produce or food shopping. It’s a great way to experience the culture, and source local ingredients to experiment with.

4. Be Prepared

If you’ve got to get a boat, plane, or car and you’re going to spend the whole day traveling, make sure to prepare some snacks and meals before you go. For example, if you’re traveling somewhere remote, go to the supermarket in advance and buy a packet of oats and some soy milk for your breakfast at the airport. Having a packet of unsalted nuts, or some fruit packs in your bag ready to go makes it easy for yourself, and ensures you won’t get stuck without healthy food!
