Looking how to eat clean and feel your best on your next trip? Read on!
1- Research. The first thing I always do is research. I invest a decent chunk of time researching nearby restaurants, on-site dining options, and/or if a fridge or small kitchen is included in the room. This way, I can plan for what and how much of our own food I will need to bring.
2 – Packing the food. I always pack an impressive amount of food. Breakfast is a no-brainer. I pack protein powder (try my favorite here!) and oatmeal for me, dried cereal, apples, and bananas for the kids. Breakfast buffets at hotels are often $14-16 per person. Ouch! We’re usually up early and off exploring so spending the money (or time) doesn’t make sense. For dry snacks I’ll bring: applesauce pouches, teething wafers, graham crackers, cheddar bunnies, rice cakes, peanut butter, nuts, etc, and water bottles/juice boxes. For items to refrigerate this list includes: yogurt, yogurt pouches, avocados, berries, a few raw veggies, and milk. I don’t usually pack lunch or dinner, unless our travel day(s) involves one of these meals (either in the car or by plane).
