Many of us are on the road during the holidays. Travelling often means lots of eating out. Here are some tips for healthy eating during your holiday travels.
Bring your own healthy foods along:
Homemade sandwiches with lean meats, natural peanut butter and/or vegetables
Whole grain crackers and low-fat string cheese
Bring raw veggies to snack on
Bring fresh fruits like apples and pears
Bring healthy snack bars – my family likes Kashi TLC bars, Zone, and Balance bars
When you have to stop to eat, choose these healthier options:
Half sandwich, soup or salad combos
Grilled chicken sandwich with a side salad
Turkey burger with side salad
Six inch sub sandwich with lean meat and lots of vegetables
Salads with grilled meats, vegetables, and low-fat dressing
Happy and safe holiday travels to all!
