The Traveller’s Guide to Healthy Eating

Maintaining a healthy diet is hard enough as it is. Add in travelling to the mix and it seems to become impossible! From buffet breakfasts to snacking from vending machines, temptation lurks around every corner. Follow these tips and make your next trip a healthy and happy travel experience.

Pack your Snacks

To avoid snacking on vending machine delights during layovers or between business meetings, pack your own savoury delights. Opt for protein sources like nuts or trail mix that won’t spoil and will fill you up till your next meal. Other great snack ideas include:

  • Hummus
  • Carrot or Cucumber sticks
  • Protein Bars

Voice your Dietary Needs

Vegetarian? Allergies? Religious dietary needs? Make sure you voice your specific requirements when you book an airline ticket and hotel accommodation. Ask to speak to the chef or manager ahead of time to make sure the restaurant can accommodate your requests.

Ditch the Bread Basket

As hard as it may be, steer clear of the entrée bread basket often served in restaurants. Ask if you can switch this out for a platter of fresh fruit instead. (Note: this is hard. VERY hard. Carbs are life)

Remember your Supplements

Travelling can be hard on your gut. Pack probiotics and immune boosters and take them at regular intervals. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and make sure that they have been properly washed. There’s nothing worse than having a bug while you’re travelling!

Keep it Simple

Order simple grilled fish or chicken with steamed or sautéed veggies when eating out. Keep your orders clean and try to avoid breaded or crumbed options. Other healthy options could include soup or salad without dressing.
