Tips for Healthy Traveling

While vacation is meant for indulgences and relaxation, you can also balance your healthy lifestyle. Stay in tune with how you feel when you skip your water intake and guzzle down that extra cocktail or overeat with large portion sizes. Try to limit lifestyle choices that leave you feeling like you need a vacation from your vacation. Whether your vacation is a local day trip or a planned destination away from home, remember to enjoy your foods and replenish your body.

Here are some tips to fuel your body and stay active:
Snack Smart
  • Small handful of almonds (or other mixed, unsalted nuts)
  • Fill a small bag/container with carrots, celery and strips of bell pepper
  • Mini-snack box of raisins (or other dried fruit without added sugar)
  • Create your own trail mix with whole grain cereal, unsalted nuts, dried fruits (even mix in a few chocolate chips)
  • Kale chips
  • Apple slices 
  • Air popped popcorn
Stay Moving
  • Walk around your new destination
  • Rent a bike to limit your reliance on a car or public transportation (packing a raincoat is helpful as I learned along the countryside)
  • Check out free outdoor events such as yoga on the beach 
  • Mix up your exercise class routine with signing up for a drop in class at a local gym

Find a local farmers' market to explore the cuisine of your destination, pick up some local snacks or meals, and walking gets your steps in.

Have a relaxing and enjoyable summer!
