Tips for dining healthy when you are on the road

On the road again?  I don’t know about you, but when I travel, I often eat terribly (going through the drive-thru or eating at restaurants) and gain lots of weight.

It’s hard to stick to a healthy diet without a kitchen to prepare meals in.  However, while you’re traveling and dining in restaurants, delis and coffee shops, it’s still possible to make healthier food choices to help stay fit and healthy.

Choosing fresh salads with low-calorie dressing, grilled or steamed fish and seafood, whole grains and filling up on water are all simple ways to stay healthy on the road. Though you may be tempted to grab pizza and hot dogs while toggling between activities, you can just as easily opt for a banana and granola to eat as you walk and have little time to spare.

Avoid white bread, starchy foods, pasta dishes and anything fried; this means stay away from the drive-thru! This can help you stick to a healthy eating routine and stave off excess weight.  Be aware of your food choices and always make wise decisions that are fresh, nutritious and similar to the foods you typically eat when at home, and you’ll feel and look as great as when you left to go on your trip.
