I'm going to Tampa, which is not far but I want to show you something travel related today so I decided to do eating healthy while traveling! I want to mention that these of course aren't as convenient most of the time but you have to go out of your way to be healthy.
First of all let's talk about those in the car snacks.
When you stop at a gas station to grab some road trip food don't grab the candy! instead grab a piece of fruit, nuts, sunflower seeds (not the sugary ones), if you must have chips (do not get lays baked they have GMO corn) but try to find some only made with sunflower oil, potatoes, and sea salt, if you can find coconut oil, avocado oil, or olive oil that is even better,
and as far as soda goes either grab water instead or grab Coca-Cola life which is made with cane sugar and Stevia instead of corn syrup, or grab a Snapple, or if they have it get honest tea or sweet leaf tea, get that.
Now that we have snacks out the way let's talk about some healthy restaurants or sort of healthier options at fast food.
(all of these are in USA)
Crispers - Delicious soups, salads, and sandwiches
Jason's Deli - Mostly organic food, they have soups, salad, sandwiches, and pastas
Chipotle - even though they have huge portions they are non-GMO
Burger FI - claims to have nothing artificial in their burgers.
You can probably find healthy things hiding in any menu but just aim for lean meats, more veggies, less carbs, and nothing fried. It's best to not eat pork which is high in cholesterol, nitrates, and fat.
now for some options in fast food
Chick-fil-a - their grilled chicken is less fat, also they have a new super food side, when getting a beverage choose either their fresh lemonade, bottled water or teas
Wendy's - now has hormone free chicken on their salads and in one sandwich, just avoid bacon on the salads and try to ask for a vinaigrette dressing instead of creamy,
Also you should have their baked potato instead of fries.
KFC - KFC has grilled chicken, and plenty of delicious vegetable sides, just avoid the biscuits, mac n cheese and mashed potatoes.
Pollo Tropical - has delicious salads, rice bowls, wraps (I think) and more.
If you know of any more PLEASE comment them so everyone else knows! Share!
And now I will share with you some food you can make in the microwave of your hotel room
Annie's - a organic frozen food brand that sells burritos, lasagna, TV dinners, and more!
Trader Joe's - a grocery store with a huge frozen section with a ton of organic options. Also everything at TJ's is non-GMO
Chamberlin's - a health food store chain that has a deli
Whole Foods - another health food store chain that has a bigger deli
Perdue - Frozen chicken nugget brand that is hormone free
You can also find steam in the bag veggies in various freezer sections, aim for organic
Another thing you can make in the microwave is a baked potato, simply poke holes in it with a knife or fork and then microwave on the potato setting.
