Eating on the Go Nutrition Tips

Some lessons I’ve learned to maintain nutrition while traveling.

Nutrition isn’t easy. But eating on the go, can be impossible sometimes. Lack of preparation, living in the hurry up state and just being unsure of what to do, can leave us lost and backslide. Here are some quick things I’ve found helpful when traveling, whether it’s day trips, weekends, or even vacations, to help keep me on track, (or at least not fall off the wagon and waste all my hard work).

1. Pack a cooler.

It seems pretty silly for me to tell you to pack your lunch with you, but I can tell you this has been extremely helpful for me. Having some favorite healthy go to’s for snacks as your on the go, can really help  the overindulgence factor on meals out, that you do want enjoy. I’m not talking about a protein bar , (which isn’t a bad option), I’m just thinking more like some veggies and hummus with some lunch meat. Think balanced here, protein, veggies, and a healthy fat.

2. Avoid Fast Food Places. 

When we’re traveling for the day, and if I’ve forgotten to grab some snacks or pack anything, my number 1 focus is to find the first grocery store I can and grab my go to’s there for a snack or meal. For me, that looks like going to the deli and having them slice some low sodium oven roasted turkey, grabbing some raw cauliflower or rice cakes, and some hummus snack sized containers, and making those my balanced snacks on the go. A little tip I found thanks to my hubby, was since I didn’t have a knife to spread the hummus on my turkey, I used that little tin lid that came on the hummus container and it worked perfectly. IMPROVISE.

3. Pack or purchase extra water.

It’s a well known fact that lack of water can cause cravings. So while on the go, or traveling, avoid the common trap of not drinking, or drinking “other” beverages. You’ll be left feeling hungry, craving things you wouldn’t normally, and then making bad decisions you’ll regret.

4. Remember your goals.

No excuses, we can avoid fast food and gut rot while on the go if we’ll just think about what’s important to us, and how badly we want to feel good and see results. Being consistent all week and then blowing it on the weekend because of lack of planning, or just wanting to have fun won’t help us get our goals met. Enjoy your weekends, have that glass of wine or that burger. But don’t waste all your hard work throughout the previous weeks or months for that matter, by throwing your weekend away with binge eating and overindulgence.

Remembering why you started in the first place will help you continue to look ahead at consistently reaching those goals.
