Healthy Travel Tips: Tip Two

IMG_20170604_173802Have a salad each day for a meal.

I know, soup and salad is my favorite so it’s easy for me to say that. But salads are really tasty and so healthful for you!

To round out your meal, order a side of chicken wings or fruit. Want more reasons why salads are the best meal around, here’s six:

  1. Salads are full of vegetables, making them one of the healthiest things you can eat.
  2. Salads can be vegetarian, paleo, vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and more, so you can add them to every day eating for everybody.
  3. Salads can be topped with just about anything from lean protein to fruit.
  4. Salads are full of fiber and therefore great for digestion.
  5. Salads are ethnically diverse so you can have a Greek Salad one day and an Italian Salad the next.
  6. Salads are delicious.

Maybe number six should have been number 1 because salads are so yummy! At any rate, this tip is easy to do and will help you feel your best, whether busy at home or on the go traveling.

In between meals, I make sure to have healthy, grabable snacks on hand all the time. Here are some of my favorites:

Just yum.

Healthy Traveler’s Tips: Introduction

Love to travel but dislike the unhealthy post trip feeling? Maybe you don’t love to travel all the time but work or personal life has you constantly on the go?

Let me tell you, there’s a way to travel healthfully and it really only takes a little extra IMG_20170604_173802effort to pull it off.

As a former preventative wellness employee and a current preventative wellness enthusiast, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this.

You can’t look and feel healthy without a healthy diet. You just can’t.

And I get it. Life is busy and time is short. But I’m here to show you there are no excuses and there are healthy options everywhere.

Being on the road is no exception. Don’t believe me? I’ll show you how.

You’ll be surprised when you see how many healthy delicious things you can find IMG_20170611_071533when you’re on the road. Whether it’s work or fun, let me show you how easy it is to treat your body well when you’re in new environments.

The other part of a healthful life, get up and move. Everyday, no matter what. You only have time for a 10 minute walk? Do it. Need to get to the gym at least every other day to keep sane? Get there.

For a great core workout, a treadmill circuit, or a leg day, check out the links. If yoga is Y3 (1)more your speed, these moves are great too. Always keep moving, it’s easily one of the best things you can do for yourself. Here’s why:

Five Reasons to Move More Each Day:

  1. move more to reduce and maintain body fat
  2. move more to improve your mood
  3. move more to help you sleep better
  4. move more to keep your immune system strong
  5. move more to help you stay more focused

This could be as little as taking the steps. But do it everywhere you go. Just make sure that you get up and move everyday.
