How to Eat Healthy on the Road

Fast food and convenience stores can be unhealthy, but you don’t have to sabotage your diet when you hit the road. There are plenty of ways to eat healthy while you enjoy your adventure!

Step 1: Pack some breakfast bars Eat something for breakfast to rev up your metabolism. Try low-fat, low-sugar breakfast bars made with whole grains — they’re easy to pack when traveling.

Step 2: Drink lots of water Dehydration can trick you into thinking you’re hungry. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Step 3: Snack on whole grain crackers Skip salty, high-calorie snacks like potato chips and pretzels in favor of baked whole grain crackers. Tip: Add some protein, like low-fat cheese or peanut butter, to keep your appetite under control between meals.

Step 4: Lunch on lean protein Choose a lean protein, such as grilled chicken or turkey, for lunch. It will give you more energy than greasy burgers and fries and keep your calorie intake low
