Healthy Travel Hacks

For those always on the go, health and nutrition tend to fall down the priority list. However, with all the stresses and changes that come with traveling, it’s important to incorporate healthy habits into your new routine. Regardless of where you’re headed, or for how long, here are some tips and tricks to help you stay on track.

  • Before embarking on a trip, pack some nutritious and filling snacks (especially for those long plane rides). Some easy-to-pack foods include nuts (be cautious of those with allergies around you), Biena Snacks, peanut butter sandwiches, dried fruit, whole grain crackers, and wholesome granola/protein bars.
  • Certainly, enjoy the delicacies of wherever you are- just don’t go overboard. When you can, try to incorporate whole foods and fruits/vegetables in meals.
  • Skip the escalator/elevator and take the stairs! If possible, opt to walk and explore new locations by foot.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Carrying around a filtered water bottle is a great way to ensure that you consume enough fluids when water fountains may be scarce.
  • If you’re staying in one place for an extended period of time, find a nearby grocery store and stock up. Grab some fresh fruits and vegetables, yogurts, oatmeal, and other easily prepared foods to balance out your restaurant indulgences. (This will also save money!)
  • Snack between meals. You won’t be rampant when it comes to dinner time and can avoid the hanger-fueled
