Eating Well While Traveling
Kids are out of school and it is vacation time. Eating healthy while traveling can pose challenges, but with advanced planning, is very doable. These are some tips shared by Robard the maker of our delicious nutritional products.
When traveling by car, packing healthy snacks in a cooler along with water and fruit juice ensures easy access to food when needed. In nice weather, rest stops with picnic tables are ideal for meals on the road. If planning to purchase meals research restaurants located along the route and using their Web sites to get menus and nutrition information for healthy choices.
Cruises are fraught with opportunities to overeat, but also can cater to special dietary needs. Ask the Cruise Line to prepare your meals with less fats and add more vegetables to your meal. Portion control is key when presented with so many options and opportunities to eat.
On the other hand, flying necessitates bringing food on board. The best option is to bring healthy foods from home that travel well and can be kept at room temperature. Etcetera’s high protein nutritional products are ideal. After clearing security, purchasing some bottled water or filling a refillable bottle is a good idea, as well as being equipped with glucose tablets or other solid hypoglycemia treatments.
Depending on the destination, dining options may include unfamiliar cuisines and ingredients. Again, plan by researching some popular local dishes will guide food choices. Accommodations with microwave and refrigerator allow the most control over food choices. Packing a few dishes and utensils make it possible to prepare hot meals.
Consulting a medical professional before traveling to help plan meals could be very helpful. They can suggest healthy food choices, give guidance on portion and nutritional balance and offer high protein products.
