Healthy Eating while Traveling?

Seems almost impossible…

I am in the process of relocating to a completely different state, AGAIN, and trying to stay healthy while this transition takes place is a bit of a task. I have to be intentional about finding the foods that I want to eat for my body and my daughters body. I am a mother who tends to worry about what everyone around me wants to eat. I have to let go of worrying about everyone else more than myself. I get caught up in criticism of my food choices when it comes to my children and husband. This has caused me harm and heartache. I will continue to include my daughters food intake along with mine, but everyone else is a an adult, I know that I have taught them well, there food choices are now up to them.

Being intentional about my health and the health of my daughter is not difficult. It is a natural process for me because I naturally lean towards healthy foods. I actually crave heathy foods. During our travels I managed to visit a restaurant that I admired on social media, it’s called “Cafe Gratitude”. This restaurant was amazing. The menu was chocked full of options. We enjoyed the fare immensely.

Here are a few mindful healthy eating habits and tips that work for me…

  1. pack your lunch.

  2. prep/cook your own food

  3. find foods that work for your body

  4. always keep water with you

  5. small snacks help with hunger pangs

  6. find eateries that meet your food requirements

  7. stay disciplined

  8. never apologise
