Sometimes it can seem impossible to eat healthy on the road during a road trip. The trick is to plan ahead and use technology to your advantage! Here are some tips to help you make it happen…
# 1 – Stock up!
Before your trip, buy plenty of healthy snacks. Humans are creatures of convenience. We are much less likely to indulge in junk food if the car is loaded with all-natural granola bars, fruit, trail mix, nuts, and peanut butter.
# 2 – Use technology to your advantage!
There are lots of great apps out there that you can use to help you eat better on the road. iExit tells you exactly what you’ll find off of any exit. Clean Plates can help you find restaurants that use healthy ingredients.
# 3 – Plan your indulgence!
If you know you are going to cheat, it’s better to do it in a controlled fashion instead of suddenly going hog wild and throwing caution to the wind. Maybe if you really love fast food breakfast, decide that will be your indulgence for the day. Or, tell yourself if you eat well all day, you can bash some fro-yo for an after-dinner dessert.
