With stores displaying an array of sweets, candy, cakes, etc., it becomes more and more challenging to stick to eating healthy. While you can always say “no” to these sweet temptations, eating healthy while traveling is rather tricky. What should I bring? Where should I eat? Will there be any other restaurants other than fast-food places?
That’s why we at Betr put our heads together to discuss our favorite tips and tricks on how to eat healthy even while traveling.
- Know your limits! If you are traveling by plane and are planning on bringing foods with you through a carry-on bag, make sure you know what’s allowed and what’s not. The current regulation only allows for 3.4 oz bottles or less which fit into a quart-sized zip bag. Therefore, if you happen to bring any powders (protein powder, supergreens, or any other kind of supplements), make sure they will fit into a travel sized container. Pack the night before to avoid any last-minute stress!
- Know your surroundings! If you happen to travel a new city that is unknown to you, it is important to scout out your food options first. Where is the closest healthy grocery store? What kind of restaurants and cafes are near me? Look those up online before you leave so you know where to go the moment you get there. There is nothing worse than being hangry, looking for food! We all know the struggle - just do the research!
- Bring an empty (shaker) bottle! While you are not allowed to bring any liquids (3.4 oz +) through security, you can indeed bring an empty bottle. Just refill it once you are through security, add your favorite powders to it (like our Betr Lyte)!
- Bring snacks! Traveling can be exhausting and you never know if you are running into unexpected traffic or (worst case scenario) are missing your flight to due inclement weather conditions! That’s why bringing snacks (like unsalted raw almonds or walnuts) is essential because you never know when you might need a little pick-me-up!
