Eating Well While Traveling

When going on retreat you know upon arriving you’ll be spoiled with organic, delicious cuisine. However, in transit before arriving to your destination it may take a bit more pre-planning to eat well. Here are some of our best tips to help you.

1. Bring your water bottle (dont’ forget to empty it before security).
2. Prior to taking off, while in the air and upon landing drink lots and lots of water.
3. Eat something at home before you begin your travel day. Start with a good foundation.
4. Bring portable, easy to carry healthy snacks. Things you know you’ll eat and enjoy otherwise you’ll ignore them.

5. Stay with your routine of coffee,tea. Travel days are not the time to go caffeine free all of a sudden.
6. Eat something en route that is simple and easily digestible. Pay more at the airport if you have to. It’s worth it instead of paying less for something less healthy.
7. Don’t starve yourself. Otherwise upon landing you’re going to make less wise eating choices or you’ll over eat unnecessarily.
