Follow a few simple steps to feel better on your next vacation! Also, you'll have some extra money and calories you can spend on yummy treats! It's all about packing a simple lunch and some snacks.
Pack your favorite nuts, and perhaps Larabars, from home. They won't get squashed or need immediate refrigeration, they're less expensive at your local grocery store, and they'll also be great to have WHILE you travel to your destination -- for the car, airport, and airplane!
When you arrive, head to a grocery store to buy a case of bottled water, a big jar of natural peanut butter, and a couple loaves of whole wheat bread. You'll probably want some plastic sandwich bags too. Then, each morning, make some sandwiches to pack along with plenty of water each day you head out while vacationing, and bring your nuts. Also grab some apples, oranges, and/or bananas from breakfast, for the day!
When we're hungry, out on vacation (or anywhere for that matter), our bodies get a natural sense of "I NEED FOOD!" and all sense about the cost, in dollars and cents, as well as nutritionally, goes out the door. Avoid this by following our little plan.
After you and your family have had a healthy sandwich, everyone will be less irritable and hungry, and have more energy! Then, knowing you've saved some money and earned some healthy nutrition points, you can splurge on a yummy treat, or even a meal that you'll really enjoy!
