Eat Right

Finding healthy foods on the road can be a challenge. To fuel your workouts without fast food and processed, empty calories, consider packing healthy alternatives, such as nuts, dried fruits and protein bars. If driving to your destination, make several homemade smoothies, freeze and transport in a cooler for a dose of fruits and vegetables on the road.

If your hotel provides a complimentary breakfast bar, pick up an extra piece of fruit (keep these to the varieties you can peel when traveling overseas), some single-serve peanut butter packets and a juice container or two for a snack. If you have an in-room refrigerator, ask for the closest grocery store or health food market to stock up on fresh, healthy fuel.

When eating out, don’t be afraid to modify the menu. Most restaurants will be very accommodating in a request for extra vegetables or healthy substitutes, like avocado in place of mayonnaise.
