Eating Healthy While Traveling

#healthyeating #protein #travelingtips #weightloss

The new year is here and many have made the resolution to start dieting or exercising. I’ve talked about how in the past year I made the resolution to lead a healthier lifestyle which resulted in me losing 60lbs and dropping multiple dress sizes. This didn’t happen overnight and it definitely wasn’t a quick change. I made minor small lifestyle changes over time that really helped me shed the pounds.


I think one of my most important tips is CONSISTENCY. You have to be consistent when it comes to your diet and exercise. I don’t think you need to work out daily, but I do think eating healthy 80% of the time and “cheating” 20% of the time is a great ratio.

I’ve talked about healthy snacks I love here and healthy breakfast ideas I love. Now, I want to talk about how to maintain that healthy eating consistently on the go! This can mean something different to different people. Maybe you have to make a quick day trip for work or maybe you’re going on vacation with your family. I try to maintain healthy eating even while traveling. Now, with that said I definitely think that if you are on vacation and you don’t want to pay attention to what you eat, by all means one week is not going to be a deal breaker. You have to listen to your body!

I recently went on a long weekend trip with my husband and I want to share some ideas of “healthier” eats that i packed for myself or ate when out.

Pictured above you will see I tried to stay pretty clean with my meals out. I ate lots of veggies and egg whites for breakfast one morning at our hotel. For dinner I opted for a side of steamed veggies in lieu of french fries. I ordered the chicken wrap for dinner and requested no cheese or dressing on the wrap. These extras can add up to a lot of calories!

One tip I have is to always eat at home before you go to the airport. My flight left at 6:05AM, which means we were up before 3:30am getting ready. I popped a quick protein waffle in the toaster and grabbed an orange. I also grabbed my favorite water bottle to pack in my carry on. So many airports have water filling stations you can fill your water bottle up at, I learned about this the last time I flew and I must say, I’m a fan!

For myself I packed multiple NuGo protein bars. These are my favorite protein bars, I eat one almost daily. The Dark chocolate variety is amazing, so many different flavor choices. Not only are they high in protein they are also vegan, gluten free and non-GMO. I could not be more obsessed with these bars. If you want to try some for yourself you can check out a store locator map to see where to buy these near you!


Thanks to NuGo for providing me with their Dark Chocolate variety pack in exchange for this post.

Share the Love!

  1. I usually keep protein bars or granola bars in my purse for healthy eating on the go. Plus, gives me a healthy option for my teen if we happen to be out somewhere.

  2. I am going to look for these protein bars. Having a good bar option saves the day for me when I am trying to stick to eating healthy. My lifestyle just doesn’t work for always having fresh food prepared.

  3. These are great tips! I need to get better at healthier snacking. I tend to grab whatever is in the breakroom which is almost never healthy!!!
