Eating Right While Traveling

My clients ask me all the time about what to eat while traveling.  We all know that eating right while traveling can be tough, but it can be done!  If you are traveling by car, my advice is to take a cooler packed with good food choices.  Take the time to meal prep before you hit the road, it will keep you from buying that bag of chips or candy bar at the gas station when you fill up.  If you are traveling by plane, here is a list of items that I will either take with me or can find at the airport…..

-Carry on a shaker cup with protein in it.  All you have to do is add water and explain to TSA what the suspicious white powder is:)

-You can purchase raw almonds and cashews from the airport store.  Be sure to grab a bottle of water too, hydration is key when flying.

-You typically can find a salad with chicken breast on the menu at airport restaurants.  Do your best to make healthy food choices when ordering off a menu.

-Grab a banana from Starbucks to carry on the plane with you.  If I have work to do on the plane I will typically get a skinny latte to keep me satisfied and awake while I plug away on my laptop:)

-I am not a huge fan of protein bars, but when I fly I go with Kind bars.  At least I can pronounce all the ingredients on the label.

-If you are in vacation mode and are looking for a cocktail not so high in calories, go for a vodka and soda water.
