How to Eat Healthy While Traveling on the Holidays
It’s hard enough to plan on eating healthy during the holidays. Throw in some traveling on the holidays and your diet might be shot.
Unless you plan ahead.
Planning ahead can save you from derailing your diet so you can splurge a little if you want, but not completely wreck your hard work.
So, where do you start? Right here.
Eat Healthy While Traveling on the Holidays: Pack Produce
It’s the most convenient food you can eat—fruits and veggies. Because they are already ready to eat—way more convenient than fast food. Now, freeze dry those and bag em and you’re in convenience heaven.
Pack some dried fruit and veggie chips to carry on a plane. If you have to stop at a post-security shop, grab an apple or banana over Doritos.
If you’re traveling by car—pack apples, bananas, raw veggies like broccoli and cauliflower. Munch on the good stuff while you’re traveling so you can save some calorie space for the in-laws dinner.
Eat Healthy While Traveling on the Holidays: Pack Protein
It’s filling, it’s healthy and it requires the most calories to digest it: protein. Protein bars, jerky, nuts, cheese, edamame and yogurt are all great options to keep you full and satisfied so you don’t succumb to a snack attack.
Eat Healthy While Traveling on the Holidays: Pack the Powder
If you want life to be as easy as possible—consider protein packs of powder. You can make your own or buy one serving sizes. Grab a water bottle and add to it when you get hungry and bam—two birds, one stone.
Eat Healthy While Traveling on the Holidays: Pack Peanuts
It doesn’t have to be peanuts, we just wanted to keep the alliteration going. Nuts are a protein and easy to eat. Pop a few to fill up, but watch your serving sizes. They can pack on the pounds quickly if you eat too many.
Eat Healthy While Traveling on the Holidays: On the Go Containers
Whether you need Ziploc bags or Tupperware—use them—especially if you’re traveling by car. If you have a cooler lunch bag, or cooler—use it. Keep your meats and dairies cold, bring your healthy dips or last night’s dinner. It just might come in handy during dessert time at the in-laws.
Eat Healthy While Traveling on the Holidays: Carb Up In the AM
The best time to eat carbs is post-workout. But if you carb up in the morning before you go, you can fill up your tank with energy you use during the day and stave off cravings. Grab some oatmeal in the morning and start your day of combatting the derailment of your diet with strategy.
