Healthy Eating When You Travel or Dine Out

By May 2, 2013

Follow me on:

Are you planning any road trips this summer? When you're on the road, it may seem like healthy food is difficult to find and that you're doomed to eat junk food until you reach your destination. But that doesn't have to be the case; you can find healthy foods while you're traveling if you know where to look.

Many convenience stores offer fresh fruit (you just need to search beyond the greasy chips and candy bars that are usually displayed prominently). You might want to pack a small cooler with fresh snacks and beverages that you have at home. This also saves you money since many things at the convenience stores are a little more expensive than what you already bought at the grocery store. Here are some more of my tips for healthy eating when you travel: Healthy Eating On the Road

What about tips for those of you who dine out frequently? I enjoy cooking so we eat most of our meals at home. But it's fun to try out different restaurants and socialize a bit. The thing is, dining out can mean extra pounds if you're not careful. So I've got my tips for finding healthy foods on a menu: How Do I Find Healthy Food On a Menu?
