Personally I am a hard core foodie, but when I travel I control my junk food temptations. For some it is exciting to try exotic foods, but be choosy when you eat. What you intake does matter a lot while you are on a tour.
Let me drop in some tips on how to eat while you travel-
1. Keep your body hydrated
Drink plenty of water while you travel as lot of your body-water content gets used up. Our body consists of 70% of water and it is essential to carry out all our bodily functions. Therefore keep your body always hydrated. Do not take sodas and sugary drinks which energise for some time, but then tire you down even more. Avoid such drinks and drink plain water. Keeping yourself hydrated also helps you in controlling the urge for junk foods.
2. Eat lean protein foods
Travel burns up a lot of protein and therefore you need to eat up more protein rich foods. It is always advised to go for lean protein foods, such as nuts, berries and eggs. It prevents energy lags when you are up for a long trek, cycling and especially if you are an adventure junkie who has a love for rock climbing, mountaineering and so on.
3. Take short meals
Never eat heavy. It slows you down and also you might be at risk of getting gastro issues which is always annoying while traveling. You could pack some of your favourite snacks from home. Eat light and eat atleast 4 to 6 times a day.
4. Eat more vegies and fruits
Drink fruit juice whenever possible. It maintains your blood sugar level which in turn keeps your energy levels intact. Eat more fresh vegetables like carrots and cucumber and citrus fruits like Oranges, lemon etc. Avoid high carbs foods like dairy products and sweets.
5. Avoid Junk foods
We all love junk foods but it always leave your stomach upset and you miss the fun of traveling. Junk foods are never recommended while traveling. Fried chips, burgers, pizzas and donuts are always at the top of the list, but it won’t help you while you set out for a journey. They are hard to digest and use all your energy for the same, leaving you lazy. Strictly avoid it.
