Tips to Eating Healthy While Traveling

While traveling for work or holiday, eating out can be expensive and unhealthy! Here are a few ideas you can try with a little planning the next time you’re going away:

  • If you are staying somewhere with a kitchen make sure they have basics like dishes and utensils.
  • If it’s a basic hotel/motel a few things to take along to help you out would be
    • Eating utensils
    • Electric kettle
    • Plate & bowl
    • A small crockpot
    • A cooler
    • Check to see if there is a microwave in the room too!

Try a few of these easy to prepare foods:

  • Hot (oatmeal) and/or cold cereals and eggs for an easy breakfast.
  • Fruit and nuts for snacks and can be added to cereal


  • Natural peanut butter and crackers
  • Pre-cut snack size veggies

  • Individual size yogurt, for variety
  • Always have water with you to reduce the temptation for pop or juice

  • Cooked shredded chicken that you can add to bagged salad
  • Pre-made meals that can be reheated in a microwave

  • Check to see what grocery stores are in the area for fresh food options
  • Limit the amount of meals eaten out!
