Eating healthy on vacation!

Eating healthy on vacation

When I don’t meal plan, I usually end up having to eat something unhealthy. So with Coach Summit 2013 coming up I knew I had to plan ahead for clean eating!

Shakeology1Eating in popular tourist areas can be expensive – especially Las Vegas! So save yourself the money on at least one meal per day, and pack your Shakeology. There will be free ice in your hotel (if one of your roommates is sweet enough to pack a blender, like mine!) and you can stop by a grocery store for milk, bananas, peanut butter, etc.

Stay hydratedDrink water all day long. Not only does water keep you more full, but thirst can often be mistaken for hunger… and in hot climates like Vegas, you need to stay hydrated, especially if you aren’t used to it.

Outsmart alcoholic beveragesOutsmart alcoholic beverages. Avoid beer and too many cocktails. But when you do drink, give a vodka and tonic with a twist of lemon or lime a try! It will usually be less than 100 calories.

Stock your hotel roomStock your hotel room. As soon as you arrive, visit the grocery store for Shakeology recipe ingredients, fruit, vegetables, nuts, protein bars, trail mix, granola, and other healthful snacks. This will help you eat at restaurants less often, and save time between events! Also keep a snack or two in your pocket or purse.

Avoid fast food restaurants. I would give you the healthiest options for these places, but why not just leave them out all together? There are better things around.

Restaurants can be your friendRestaurants can be your friend. The prices can get a little scary, but you budgeted to travel, right? Check out the low calorie menu, or aim for healthier options like salad, wraps, and grilled chicken. Try to find a lighter salad than a caesar, and ask for dressing on the side. Focus on lean protein and vegetables.

Never skip breakfast. It may be free at your hotel, and it will help you boost your metabolism and get through the day!
