The holidays are upon us and with it comes stress in many forms. What to buy, who to visit, what not to eat, etc. Traveling is another biggie but this year, you can do it right.
Check out some of these tips that you can use to keep healthy and sane this holiday travel season.
1. Eat before you leave the house.
You should always leave with a full tummy or you will be tempted to nosh on whatever is convenient.
2. Know before you go.
Know which airports you will be flying in and out of, laying over, etc. Most airports have websites that show what dining establishments can be found in each terminal. For instance, I know that the Delta terminal at LAX has a Starbucks (for my soy latte) and a CPK express where I can grab a salad or soup for the flight.
Most international hubs have chain restaurants or familiar fast food counters that you can order up a healthy meal for your in flight pleasure. From a veggie salad or sandwich at Quiznos to a black Bean Burger at Chili’s To Go, there are ways to not give in to bags of pretzels and pounds of danishes to keep you from passing out on your flight. The World Travel Guide site is a great site that can lead you to each city’s airport web site.
