How To Eat Healthy When You Travel - Part 2: Eating and Drinking on Your Trip

November 16, 2017

This is Part 2 of our How to Stay Healthy When You Travel Series. Check out Part 1 if you haven't yet!

 

 

 

Once You Arrive

Remember how we said the key to healthy travel is planning ahead? This means buying & prepping some food you know will be nutritious and make you feel good throughout the duration of your trip.

 

When you arrive, hit the grocery store…. Whole Foods is usually a safe bet, but it's also nice to explore local co-op groceries whenever you can find them. If you want to be fancy, try AmazonFresh, groceries delivered to your door - err, hotel.

 

Here's a peek at my typical grocery list & planned menus. Although salads get a little old after a while, it's usually the easiest to prepare without a kitchen, and packs a ton of nutrition to keep you feeling awesome.

Skip the grocery line altogether

If buying all of these groceries seems daunting, you can find pre-made meals locally, and have them delivered on the day you arrive. When I do this, I never have to worry about food from that point on. Hotel front desk staff is also very nice about keeping it cold. A quick google search can help with this. For example, “paleo meal delivery in Houston, TX” You’ll pay a little extra for your food, since it’s already prepared, but sometimes the convenience is absolutely worth it! See below for some other “packed lunch” options.

 

 

Eating Out & Eating in General

 

Breakfast

Portable nutrition is critical if you're on the go in the mornings. I buy Naked Juices, and they’re really yummy! But be warned - these things contai
