Many Americans who were raised on fast food and TV dinners are reconsidering their food choices. Trading the Big Mac for the organic snack isn’t easy and many professionals find that eating while traveling can lead to poor dietary decisions. Here are some tips for how to eat healthy while traveling for work:
Bring Snacks from Home to Stay Consistent – Is there a favorite breakfast bar, protein powder, or organic juice you enjoy? Bringing those snacks with you on the road can help keep you on track throughout the day.
Use Review Sites to Plan Eating Out Ahead of Time – Using Yelp, CleanPlates.com and other websites can provide unbiased opinions about the quality of the food and the best menu options. Knowing what you are going to order before walking into a restaurant is also a great plan to make sure you don’t make a poor eating decision.
Order the Lunch Portion – Many restaurants now offer “lunch portions”, or smaller versions of their main entrée. Ordering the lunch portion doesn’t put you in the awkward situation of trying to save food for later, ordering half a portion, or wasting a good portion of an entrée.
