How Do I Stick to My Healthy Eating Resolutions When I Travel? 0 11

We get this question almost non-stop from readers, wondering how they can maintain healthy eating habits or new healthy eating resolutions when they are traveling or on vacation. It is more difficult to stick to a healthy diet when you are traveling, particularly if you are staying in hotels or other accommodations without a kitchen, leaving you with no choice but to eat out for most or all your meals. But there are some ways that you can make it easier to make healthy choices when traveling. Here are a few tips you can use to stick to your healthy eating resolutions when you travel.

Look at the Nutrition Information

The first tip that you can use to follow healthy eating resolutions when you are traveling is to check nutritional information whenever you can. Each country has different rules, but many require the disclosure of nutritional information if requested at a restaurant, and almost all countries require labels in grocery stores to contain nutrition information. With this information, you can check things like calorie content, fat content, sugar content, protein content, and the ingredients lists of most items, which can help you make choices that align with your goals.

Choose Healthy Foods

The next tip that you can use when you are trying to eat healthy while traveling is to choose healthy foods. This tip may sound vague and too simple to be useful, but honestly try it and you will see that often eating healthy on vacation comes down to what you choose. Wherever you are, there will be a healthy choice, you just need to make it. For instance, there are soups in just about every country around the globe. Soup is an awesome cold weather dish and is often full of healthy vegetables and proteins. Look for healthy choices and have the strength to choose them.

Cut Yourself Some Slack

The final tip for you to eat healthy when travelling is to cut yourself some slack. While it is one thing if you are traveling for work all the time and are constantly traveling, but if you are just on vacation and exploring another culture, then remember that part of culture is food. You shouldn’t limit yourself from trying other cultures’ cuisines because of a diet when you are traveling for exploration. So, every now and then, cut yourself some slack and try something new.

Eating healthy when you are traveling is difficult, but it is far from impossible. If you know what to do and what not to, you can get through travel as healthily as possible. Follow these three healthy travel eating tips to ensure that you are following your healthy eating resolutions when on the go.

Everyone in America gets free tacos from Taco Bell today, October 30, thanks to baseball. As expected, the Chalupa-slinging fast food chain’s annual “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” free food giveaway was triggered by the first stolen base of the 2019 World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. We repeat: Free tacos at Taco Bell. For everyone. Today.

Sure, it may not be the World Series you were hoping for, but a nationwide free taco party is something everyone can get excited about, no matter who you root for. Literally everyone is a winner. You just have to head to your local T-Bell and they’ll present you with an edible trophy. 

When and where to get the free tacos

Taco Bell is promising to give everyone in the United States one free Doritos Locos Taco; specifically, one Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco (the chain killed off the Fiery and Cool Ranch versions in August). To get your free taco, simply go to Taco Bell and request the freebie on October 30 any time between the hours of 2pm and 6pm (local time) while supplies last. Better yet, if you order your free Doritos Locos Taco through the Taco Bell mobile app, you don’t have to abide by the time limitations; you can get it any time throughout the day for pickup (no additional fee) or delivery (for an additional fee). Either way, just extend your hand, grasp your free taco, maybe squirt some Fire Sauce on it, and eat it. No exchange of currency required.

For a traditional New York hot dog, be sure to add sauerkraut, onions, relish, and spicy brown mustard. When it comes to New York hot dogs, the messier the experience, the better.

Pizza

The quintessential New York-style thin-crust pizza dates back to the early 1900s. New York boasts a bevy of pizza restaurants with the most famous ones being Joe’s and Lombardi’s. Be prepared to wait in line if you arrive at one of these hot spots during the lunch or dinner rush. You can also head to Little Italy for your pick of authentic pies with an assortment of toppings.
