We understand the challenges of maintaining a healthy animal-based diet while traveling or visiting family. It may seem daunting, but it's definitely possible! Today, we're sharing some tips and strategies to keep you feeling your best no matter where you are.
Things to Keep in Mind While Traveling
Remember, perfection is not the goal. It's all about balance and making the best choices available to you. Even if the food options aren't always ideal (like non-organic or grain-fed), you can still make nutritious choices that energize and satisfy you. Try to avoid processed foods, artificial sweeteners, and seed oils.
Whenever possible, choose accommodations with a kitchen. Having access to a fridge, freezer, and stove means you can continue to prepare your own meals. Many rental properties and even some hotel chains offer rooms with kitchen facilities.
Upon arrival, head to the local grocery store and stock up on your favorite animal-based foods. Even if you can't cook every meal, having a fridge or freezer filled with healthy options will make it easier to stick to your diet.
And don't be afraid to get creative! Some people bring a portable oven or camp stove or toaster oven to cook their own meals. You can also prepare meals before your trip and freeze to reheat when you arrive.
And a good travel cooler and thermos is your best friend while traveling with prepared foods, it is worth the investment!
