Top Tips to Avoid Eating Troubles When You Travel

by Christina Yang 05/12/2019

Travelling affects your nutrition in so many ways. While one may be excited to taste and savor all kinds of different foods, some may be concerned about their health because their body is not used to various meals.

People with food restrictions will find it difficult to eat just any food with the troubles of getting sick to discourage many from maximizing their traveling enjoyment. The good news is that you can easily make a healthy food choice that will not pose a danger to your health and keep you energized while you are not carrying out your usual routine. Here are some tips that will help you prevent eating troubles when you travel:

Do not skip your breakfast

It is advisable to eat before embarking on your journey. If you start your journey with an empty stomach, you may end up eating fast food that you wouldn't have eaten. Therefore, it is better to eat a healthy breakfast before setting out. 

If you are flying, you can consider oatmeal which only requires hot water. You can get hot water from a flight attendant.

Take healthy snacks along

To avoid eating troubles when traveling, you should pack healthy snacks that you can take when hunger strikes. It is essential that you have something satisfying and healthful in your backpack. You should think of crackers, whole-grains, dried fruit, nuts, low-cal popcorn, reduced sodium jerky, and trail mix.

Don't hesitate to fill your cooler with ice if you have one. Also consider stocking a mini-fridge in your hotel with fresh fruits, Babybel cheese, hummus, low-fat yogurt, and pitted green olives. When you have this at your disposal, you will not need to go for a high-calorie meal. 

Plan your meals ahead

Planning your meal is very important, and it's a way of avoiding eating troubles when you travel. Plot your travel plans, determine where you are going to be at a particular time and whether you are going to be on the road for lunch or would have reached your destination. A little planning has a lot of advantages. You can also decide to make a whole grain wrap with tomato, onion, lettuce, turkey, mustard, as well as a side salad – and then take them along with you.

A refillable water bottle is also essential; you can always fill it up when the need arises. Being aware of your dietary restrictions is critical especially when you are traveling to somewhere new. So if you’re unsure before you visit, talk to your nutritionist about what might work for you, do some research on where you’re going, and stock up on simple snacks.
