If you're staying in a hotel, these are the best choices when eating from the complimentary breakfasts that most hotels offer:
**stay away from bagels, donuts, waffles, sugary cereals, sausage, bacon, sugary fruit bars
How to stay healthy when traveling:
Instead of eating out, what I like to do is create a simple meal plan out of foods that I can pick up at a local grocery store and that don't require cooking or preparation.
Here are some of my favorite choices:
Greek yogurt Protein powder Rotisserie chicken Low-sodium lean deli meat Low-fat cottage cheese Almonds and almond butter Fruit Salad (buy salad dressing and packaged greens). When you book your hotel, make sure you ask about the mini-fridge. The bigger the better.
Then, when you arrive at your destination, you simply head to the grocery store, pick up your food, throw it in the fridge, and you're good to go. Keeping it simple will help you stay on track & will also save you money that eating out will not.
