Eating Healthy On The Go
We are pretty conscientious about our eating habits at home, but all of that seems to fall to the wayside when we're out. And we travel a fair amount, since my in laws live nearly 2 hours away. So I decided to make a list of goals to start following when we're on the go! :)
- Pack lunch/snacks for car rides.
- Prepare the night before. If I plan to do it in the morning or before we leave, it gets put off and doesn't happen.
- If we do grab some fast food, make healthier choices. Just because we're already eating unhealthy doesn't mean we have to go all out and eat total crap. McDonald's has oatmeal, you can ask for healthier replacements such as turkey sausage and egg whites at Dunkin Donuts, etc.
- Bring water. We have stainless steel water bottles but we always forget to bring them. Drinking lots of water is so good for you, and replacing all other drinks with water cuts a surprising amount of extra calories out of your diet. Not to mention it's better for your teeth!
Do you have any tips for eating healthy when out of the house?
