Whether it is a day trip, or a business trip – you don’t always have access to your kitchen. You need to keep yourself healthy, so what do you choose?
Choose real food
Sometimes this requires a bit of homework before the trip. Supermarkets have a few options now such as prepared salads; or vegies ready to be popped into an oven (if you are lucky enough to be in self-contained accoms for an overnighters). Alternatively check what restaurants are near where you are & do a little research. My fav option is checking for Farmer’s Markets if they are on.
Some good eating out options
Things happen, plans change – there is no issue with eating out, just make wise choices.
✅ Go fresh NOT fried or processed
✅ Load up on the veggies
✅ Choose colourful, the more colours the better
✅ Make it a light option NOT heavy or creamy
✅ Be in charge – ask for the dressing on the side (then you can choose how much you want)
✅ Choose good fats, salads or veggies
✅ Try different proteins, there are some amazing vego options out there
Brand name takeaways
✅ Guzman Y Gomez – burritos or salad bowls all with brown rice & guac
✅ Grill’d Burgers – yup, they’ve got salads & have gluten free burger options
✅ Sumo Salads – it’s a MYO option so you get to choose what is going into your salad
✅ Vietnamese – a great choice for salad bowls or rice paper rolls
✅ Japanese – sushi rolls & steamed gyozas
✅ Thai – lots of stir-fried vegies
✅ An all-day breakfast – eggs & vegies (THHINK spinach, tomatoes & mushies)
✅ Grilled fish & a fresh salad
Keep a snack stash, because let’s face it – sometimes plans go a bit awry. Whether it’s in a bag on the back seat during a car trip or in your bag if you are flying, be prepared with a few tasty options. THINK fruit with nut butters; veggie sticks with some tahini or hummus; boiled eggs; nuts & seeds; or create your own trail mix.
If you are travelling for more than a day, I usually have a few supps in my bag. I try to keep my immune system up & stress levels down – this means there is usually some Vitamin C, Cod Liver Oil tabs & a good B Vitamin.
