It isn’t practical to eat at home for every single meal. Short of packing your kitchen in a backpack, how do you maintain your physique when you’re without a healthy, home-cooked meal? Obviously, you have the option of carrying your food with you. But this can be tricky and isn’t always appropriate in every situation. Here are a few simple tips to help you enjoy the time you spend away from home without derailing your fitness goals.
Eating healthy while you're away comes down to proper planning. Pack some protein powder for when you are en route and don't have access to a healthy snack or meal. Map out the closest grocery store to where you are staying and call the hotel to make sure there will be a fridge in the room. When you arrive, go grocery shopping. Look for the staples.
Skip on the appetizers and instead opt for vegetables or a salad to start. In addition to being packed with micronutrients, veggies also fill you up thanks to their high fiber content. Then make sure you have a healthy helping of grilled protein (avoid breaded/fried)!
