Food Snark

HEALTHY EATING WHILE TRAVELLING

We all enjoy a vacation away from home with family and friends. Traveling gives an opportunity to bond with family, explore new places, cultures and cuisines and get away from the stress and monotony of daily life.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of a vacation would be trying out different types of food. With the many choices available it is easy to divert from healthy eating. Therefore it is very important to plan ahead and more so if you are traveling with children.

When taking a road trip pack plenty of healthy snacks, such as cheese and crackers, dried fruits and nuts, fresh fruits, and if you have a cool box pack in some homemade sandwiches. This way there won’t be a need to stop at fast food restaurants on the way.

Do research on the restaurants on your way and at your destination and pick ones which serve healthy foods. Order foods that use least amounts of cooking oils, salt and sugar.

Take plenty of water and juice.

By not over indulging, you can enjoy a delicious calorie laden meal occasionally and not feel guilty about it; after all you are on vacation!
