How To Eat Healthy While Traveling
Are you the kind of person that loves to travel whenever the opportunity strikes? If so, what do you do when you get hungry while traveling? Do you find yourself going out to eat a lot? Or perhaps you grill some burgers and smores over the fire every night. Whatever you do, how healthy is it?
Going out to eat every night can be a problem for many reasons. You'll lose money quickly and you may be tempted to get an appetizer, full meal, and then dessert. Not to mention that alcoholic beverage that sounds (and looks) too good to pass up. You could go in feeling confident that you won't break your healthy eating habit, and come out feeling sick to your stomach that you didn't stick to it at all.
However, eating over an open fire can be dangerous for your health too. Cooking hamburgers and hotdogs constantly will raise your sodium level and the fat content will make you feel guilty to even look at s'mores.
So what can you do to stick to your healthy lifestyle while traveling?

This sounds like a pain to do but once you get used to it, it'll make your life so much easier! You could cook up a pound or two of chicken and put it with rice and veggies for a few nights. Or, if you're vegetarian, you can cook up some quinoa and veggies! Whatever you choose to do, it'll be a much healthier alternative. For dessert, you can put yogurt and fruit slices together with granola on the side!
Schedule Just One Night For Eating Out

If you're one of those people that loves eating out while traveling, it's okay! It'll be hard to stick to this rule, though. Instead of spending money each night, save up some money and get yourself something fancy for one night. Go to a fancy restaurant that you normally wouldn't and splurge. This doesn't mean you need to get an appetizer, full course meal, dessert, and drinks, though! Get yourself something that you normally wouldn't because of the price.
Whatever you choose to do while traveling, try to keep it healthy! Cheat days aren't that great for you, and it'll be hard for you to get back on track with healthy eating if you eat poorly each night.
