Healthy eating while traveling

In the past, when we've gone on vacation it was an excuse to pig out! To eat whatever we could find that was cheap and convenient.

But we have improved over the years. 

We have been on vacation for the past 2 weekends in two different places.

Our first vacation was with our family right before Christmas. We rented a home through www.vrbo.com and stayed 4 days and 3 nights. I have been on a strict diet/way of eating for the past 2.5 months and was really wanting to keep going since I have been feeling SO good!

So I brought some food from home and my husband and I went grocery shopping when we got there. We got some splurges but we bought pretty healthy and yummy food. 

We got eggs, bacon, ground beef, veggies, fruit, and some snacks in between meals. 

Each meal was a treat! I did so good! 




These may not be the prettiest presentations (LOL) but they sure were good! And I was feeling pretty good when we got home. 

Then we left 6 days later, just my me and my husband. We went to Oregon and stayed 4 days and 3 nights. Again, we rented a home through www.vrbo.com and "ate in" for each meal. It was nice to have a Whole Foods within walking distance too!

Here were some of our meals:






I am hungry just thinking about all of this food!

Real food tastes so good! 

When traveling by plane, come prepared with snacks to eat while in the air. Nuts are my favorite. But you can also do fruit, applesauce, jerky. I've been impressed with airports lately. They are offering more and more healthy convenience and dining options! It is actually pretty fun to forage our way to finding the best food. 

The key to eating healthy is PREPARATION!

Don't let a vacation or weekend derail you - but if they do, jump right back in! No one is perfect. We all mess up. I did yesterday. I had a bunch of See's chocolates but today is a new day and I am really looking forward to having a salad like one of these tonight!
