It can be difficult to eat healthy while traveling. So many restaurants to choose from! My husband and I love to travel. I have found that we can eat healthy while traveling with a few pre-prep ideas. Try these tips out and see if your next adventure can be a little more delicious!
- Check out restaurants online before finding a place.
Figure out what restaurants serve authentic cuisine. While in Paris, we noticed so many restaurants only had greasy, fried food. The restaurants were trying to appeal to tourists and serve what they thought tourists would like. After that experience we always check out restaurants ahead of time especially if we can’t speak the language. We want local and fresh!
- Try to book a place with a kitchen or if staying in a hotel at least a mini fridge.
This will allow you at the very least to store a few healthy snacks. I personally love going to local markets and trying out the local cuisine while I’m traveling. What better way to expand your taste buds than by going to the local market, picking up some crowd favorites and making and authentic meal.
- Prepack overnight oats.
I put the oats, cinnamon, and chia seeds in individual bags already measured. All you need is milk and berries and you have a delish breakfast or snack.
- Bring some of your favorite snacks.
I will bring packs of peanut butter, nuts and granola bars. Sometimes while exploring a new place you forget to eat or can only find junk food. It’s always great to have a few snacks handy.
