Health Info & Resources for Seniors
When you are traveling it is often difficult to eat healthy. We try to eat food on the go that is affordable and easy rather than that which is healthy. Listed below are some healthy food options to take along with you when you are traveling to avoid having to eat less healthy food that can cause you to feel tired and leave you feeling empty.
One great food to take along on any trip is an apple. Apples are a great food when traveling. Apples are easy to eat, healthy, and compact; they fit nicely into your luggage, brief case, or purse, and keep in moderate temperatures without spoiling. So if you are on the go, take an apple along for a quick and easy snack.
Another great snack to take with you during your travels are nuts. Nuts are not only nutritious but they provide a great source of protein. You can create individual serving sizes that can be easily carried with you when traveling, taking up minimal space, but offering maximum value as they provide energy to you.
Another must have food item when traveling is a protein or energy bar, as they too are easy to take with you and deliver a great source of protein for your diet in an easy to eat portion size.
Lastly, make sure to take along a bottle of water. Although it is not food, water is essential to your diet, more importantly it will help hydrate your body when eating the items listed above. Incorporate these items into your travels and see how much better you feel when you have to eat on the go.
