Stay Healthy On The Road

Eating clean ON A ROAD TRIP:

Road tripping is one of the easiest ways to eat healthy while traveling. Just plan ahead and pack wisely.

Pack the right food! Only bring the items that are really necessary and that don’t need to be refrigerated. Shelf-stable foods such as raw wraps, healthy snacks, vegan protein powders and nuts are the best. I also like to take with me some of my favorite super food powders stored in Ziploc bags so that I can add flavor and nutrients to my shakes.
Bring a blender! Making your own smoothies and dips is the best way not to fall into temptation and cheat on some nasty food while you are out.
Don’t forget to take some basic kitchen tools with you too: cutleries, a good knife and a small cutting board will make your life easier when you want to improvise a quick salad. Glass containers will be a great aid to store your food and eat it on the go.

Follow the farmers! Find out when the local farmer’s markets are and stop there daily to purchase fresh, local, organic produce! This will allow you to always have access to the best produce, even when you don’t have a fridge to store it!

Create fun stops on the way! Part of taking a road trip includes enjoying the local food. Make some research online and locate the restaurants and stores along your route that suit your eating habits. Google is a life savior, and platforms like Happy Cow are really useful too! Trying new restaurants or juice bars in a city we’ve never been is a fun and exciting part of traveling. Knowing where the healthy options are will prevent you from stopping in the first sandwich bar just because you were hungry and didn’t know where to go.

You can either enter the words ‘gluten free’, ‘vegan’ or ‘healthy food’ into your GPS (I use the one that comes with the IPhone), or, if you are looking for a specific item, let’s say ‘gelato’ for example, Google it together with the word ‘vegan’, ‘gluten free’ or whatever it is that you are looking for. You can’t even imagine how many incredible places I discovered thanks to this quick exercise!
