Vacation eating strategies

Many are heading out on vacation away from home during the holidays.  Some may be boarding planes for flights and others may be hopping in their vehicles for a road trip.  However you plan to travel and wherever you are staying, consider using some healthy vacation eating strategies.

  • Do not skip meals and watch your portion sizes
  • Do not raid the hotel minibar and get suggestions for restaurants with healthy food
  • Limit yourself to two low-calorie alcoholic drinks per day
  • If you are flying pack healthy portable foods (nuts, dried fruit) and if you are driving, pack a cooler with healthy foods (yogurt, string cheese)
  • If your hotel has a kitchenette with a fridge, use it.  Go to the grocery store and purchase healthy snacks and breakfast foods

I love homemade applesauce with cinnamon. One of the items I use often during the holidays is the slow cooker.  Our family has always eaten hearty and healthy right out of our room at ski resorts, by using a slow cooker!
