SUGGESTIONS FOR EATING HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELING
- Book a hotel room with a refrigerator or kitchenette:
stock the fridge with fruits, vegetables, nut milk, and hummus. Also buy nuts, cereal, and dry bean soups low in sodium.
- A simple hotel breakfast:
oatmeal or cereal with almond milk, berries, and bananas.
- A simple hotel lunch or dinner:
dry bean soup made with hot water from your coffee maker (high in plant protein, low in sodium, free of cholesterol and saturated fats).
Add lemon, a handful of salad greens, and some hot sauce for extra flavor.
- Simple snacks:
nuts, fruit, and carrots can be purchased at airports and even gas stations.
- When in doubt:
avoid meat and sugary, processed foods, and plan ahead as much as possible.
