These snacks are easy to throw in your purse for when you're out and about during the day. Also, ask for a mini-fridge in your hotel room so you can store any food that needs refrigeration.
Eating Out Is Okay
When I am on the road I love trying local cuisine. Why take the fun out of trying new foods? However, dining out can be dangerous to your diet.
Salads are always a nice choice. Be cautious of dressings. Salad dressings can be packed with fat and calories. Ask for it on the side, and if you have meat on your salad, ask for no salt. Cooks put a great deal of salt on meats while cooking, so request no salt if you're watching your sodium intake.
If you order an entrée, control your portion size. If you're dining with someone, ask to split a meal. Another option is to get a to-go box prior to getting your dish. Put half of your meal away before diving into your meal. This way you will have leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. (Don't forget to ask for that mini-fridge!)
Stick to the plan, bring proper workout gear, keep snacks handy, and dine out the smart way... And, don't forget to enjoy your trip!
