Whether you’re traveling for business or on the go around your home, you don't need to give up healthy eating simply because you are on the run. The fact is, healthy eating is even more important when you’re trying to keep up with a busy schedule. Being conscious of what you do while you’re busy will help your body to handle stress better, maintain a healthy weight and allow you to experience better overall health. Therefore, as you hustle about your busy day, take these following tips to help you eat healthy when you're on the go.
Tip # 1
Healthy Eating at Restaurants
With tempting menus, large portions, and a festive atmosphere, it's easy to consume large amounts of empty calories when you eat out. Therefore, if you travel often, prepare healthy meals such as healthy sandwiches, fresh fruit and raw snacks. If you eat out at a restaurant, be aware of your portions and ask for a to-go box when you feel full. Also ask for a “Lean” menu if it’s available.
Tip # 2
Healthy Eating at Airports
An airport can be a very stressful place. Long wait times, layovers and the stress of a long flight. Therefore, before you arrive at the airport, have a healthy meal, drink plenty of water and ensure you have healthy snacks on hand. After a long stress-filled wait, you may be tempted to consume a high amount of calories as you wait for your flight.
Tip # 3
Healthy In Your Car
Whether it’s a long commute to work, shuffling your kids to and from softball practice or school, it is recommended to always have healthy snacks available so that when you get hungry - you have them.
