The past 18 months I have flown more than all my other years combined. Traveling can be a stressful and tough time to make healthy choices. But when I hear people saying the can’t eat healthy when traveling, or use the excuse that it is impossible to make healthy choices, it really gets me upset. These are just excuses to help make us feel better. I had a bootcamper recently tell me she was having trouble eating healthy because she lives alone and doesn’t cook. Again, that is just another excuse to help justify a current behavior. Sure things might not be ideal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the right choice with a little planning. Jillian Michaels from the Biggest Loser, has probably logged close to a million frequent flier miles since the start of Biggest Loser, but I have heard many interviews with her explaining that she refuses to eat any processed food and packs all natural all organic snacks and meals. It shows in the way her body still looks despite the fact she says sometimes she goes weeks without working out.
Ok, I will get off my soap box now…
I am writing this from UC Irvine, just got done with a great workout with my friend Andrew and we are headed to the Huntington beach. Yesterday I had 10 hours of travel with a 4.5 hour layover. I wanted to show you how I am able to make healthy choices when traveling.
I have to give a shout out to my girl friend Abby who made these snacks for me to take.
What are some of your strategies you use when traveling and trying to eat healthy?
