5 Tips to Eat Healthy While Traveling on a Holiday
When enjoying a vacation and travelling a lot, our healthy eating habits often take a back seat. In the process of wanting to try a lot of new cuisines and dishes, we end up compromising on our health. Fine, we don’t have a kitchen at our disposal when we are on vacation. And who wants to cook on a holiday anyway? But if you don’t want to return with ‘holiday fat’, then you need to consciously ensure that you are eating a healthy diet with only a little amount of cheating. Listed here are a few tips for you to eat healthy while travelling on a holiday.
1. Fill yourself up with good breakfast
Most hotels have a great breakfast menu, where you will have plenty of options to choose from, in the buffet or otherwise. Since breakfast is mostly included in your hotel tariff, make the most of it by eating as much as you want. Take advantage of the many varieties of fruits and juices available there, which you would otherwise not consume on a regular basis. A nice, heavy breakfast will keep you full for hours, and will save you from making halts at fast-food joints even before you have reached the first sightseeing destination.
2. Pack snacks for the day
Pack some of the fruits and sandwiches from the breakfast buffet and keep them with you. These snacks will be your saviors when you are unable to find a good restaurant around, or when the city that you are in is extremely expensive for you to make regular dine-in halts.
3. Customize meals
When on a holiday, you want to try the local cuisine of the place you are visiting, and that’s completely understandable. However, try and customize the meal with added vegetables or less butter and oil (depending on the dish, of course) to not deviate a lot from your healthy eating habits. So when trying pizza in Italy, get more veggies and less cheese there!
