Go ahead and treat yourself to pasta in Rome and pastries in Paris. But be mindful and realize it’s all about balance. Eat smaller meals throughout the day or split your meal and save leftovers for lunch the next day. The key here is moderation.
At restaurants, order meat and seafood baked or grilled rather than fried or battered. Ask to hold the bun and leave any sauces or dressings on the side. Substitute fries for healthier options such as grilled vegetables or brown rice.
Pack hunger-sustaining snacks to nibble on throughout the day so you don’t find yourself starving by dinnertime. Think almonds, granola bars, jerky and dried fruit, which are portable and don’t require refrigeration. For lunch on the go, check out the local farmer’s markets and try fruits, veggies and local meats.
I hope these tips help you to stay feeling your best during your travels. I can promise you that the extra effort will be well worth it when your return home after your time away!
