Superfoods and Travel
When you are on the road and travelling, it is a change from your daily routine and sometimes we don’t eat the foods that we should – many travellers tend to eat high calorie, high fat foods while away. While it is wonderful to explore different foods, we still need to make sure that they are healthy for us and will give us the energy we need while on the road.
Sitting for long hours on planes, buses or in cars can also take its toll, so make sure to get some daily exercise in – if you are touring around and exploring – walk whenever possible, it is the best way to see the cities! If you are away on business, try to find a hotel that has a gym and workout daily.
Whenever possible pack your own snacks so you always have some healthy choices to fall back on. I also like to travel with protein packs that I can add to my liquids to make sure I am getting enough protein daily. Great to have if you are on the go all day. Take a look at the list below compiled by SwissHotel of some great superfoods that you can add to your diet while away and at home to give you the extra boost you may need.
But above all – make sure you keep hydrated – it doesn’t take very much to get dehydrated and can lead to muscle cramps, fatigue, headaches and reduced concentration.
