Eating Right While Traveling?

Hi to the best women's networking group in SW Florida!

This is the time of year when we are all traveling around. Short week-end hops, long week-end excursions, two-weeks in the mountains, etc. With all of this traveling, how on earth can we eat right?

It can be done! Although much of it will depend on how much you want to! I'm not saying that while we are on vacation that we can't have some yummies. The problem is when we have a 'yummy' at breakfast, lunch and dinner and everywhere in between.

My advice is before you go, decide in advance which treat you absolutely cannot live without. Then plan for it! Call ahead to the hotel, talk to the concierge and find out what food options are at the place you are staying and what stores and restaurants are close by. Pack some healthy protein bars that actually taste good to have for breakfast with a great cup of coffee. Toss a few in your purse so that you can have one about an hour before lunch or dinner so that you are not so famished by the time you are served that you eat way more than your body needs for fuel.

So, this week whether you are out training women in business, doing women's networking, or are a stay-at-home mom, while you are planning your vacation, remember to plan ahead!
