Thinking about heading out for a long autumn drive? Before you do, ask yourself: do candy and energy drinks constitute a healthy diet?
Admit it. You are cruising for a bellyache. Leave the candy at home and follow these tips on how to eat healthy on a road trip.
# 1 – Try to maintain your regular schedule. We often go long periods without eating when we go on road trips. This is part of why our energy levels get so out of whack. That’s when we reach for coffee and energy drinks and drink to excess. Eat meals and snack sparingly.
# 2 – Hey, what’s wrong with snacking? Nothing, as long as they aren’t abused. Think about it. How often and at what quantity do you snack when you’re not road tripping? It likely pales in comparison to what you eat on the road. Snack healthy. Try things like almonds, veggies and hummus, Greek yogurt, or dried fruit.
# 3 – Stay hydrated! Coffee is known for its dehydrating effects; sugary drinks too. Making sure you drink plenty makes sure you keep your energy up too.
The bottom line is that eating healthy ensures that you are at your best. And only then can you enjoy your trip to the fullest!
