Summer is approaching and a vacation trip is calling out for you! We all face the jet lag, dehydration due to climate change and eventually get home with a more tired body and mind than before.
Have you ever wondered why it happens? Let me tell you; it is because we usually leave all our healthy habits and rituals back at home while traveling. We begin to eat without a thought. We skip courses of meals and prefer munching unhealthy snacks. And we completely neglect our health in many ways unconsciously.
Here are a few tips and tricks for you to eat healthy and stay fully energized while traveling this summer:
Breakfast Packed with Protein and Fiber:
Skipping breakfast during your trip is the biggest compromise on health. Do not skip breakfast no matter what. In fact, eat a wholesome breakfast which is based on protein and fiber-rich foods like muesli, oatmeal, eggs and apples. Taking plenty of fiber and protein in the morning can keep your energy level boosted throughout the day and keeps you satiated. Protein does not only help improve the energy but also curbs cravings.
Body Detox on the Go:
Eating out and eating recklessly is more like a part of traveling for most people. All the foods and oils that you avoid back at home become a part of your diet during the trip. A lot of toxins begin to take place inside the body and become a threat to the immunity. Therefore, body detox is something that can be your life-saver while traveling.
All you need to do is drink water with lemon slices and mint in it. Keep a bottle or a mason jar filled with your favorite detox water all the time. Also, drink 3 to 4 cups of green tea as well.
Try Out Different Salads:
Rather than ordering a steak or a burger on every eatery you try, give a try to all different salads you find on the menu. Almost all the restaurants have salads on their menu and they are definitely the healthiest option you can go for. Also, make sure you are the first person to place the order so that you do not get to change your mind when you see others ordering all the fast food and other fattening food.
Carry Nuts, Corns and Other Nutritious Snacks:
Scrunching big pack of cookies and chips every time you feel hungry during your trip does not only greatly affect your health but also spoils your fitness big time. Therefore, it is always better to pack some healthy and nutritious food in your bag.
There are tons of healthy options that we totally neglect when it comes to snacking. You can keep nuts, fruits, oatmeal bars and even a jar of peanut butter. You can slather it on any sort of bread and fill your tummy. These snacks contain healthy fats, protein and other nutrients that your body needs. Plus, they are filling and delicious at the same time. Then, why choose fattening and unhealthy snacks!
