If you love being on the road and have a knack to explore the unexplored, you are living life right. Traveling nurtures your mind and broadens your thoughts. Learning about different cultures does not only expand the horizon of your knowledge but also creates a sense of compassion and brotherhood.

The feeling that people living thousands of miles away from you could be so different and yet practice similar choices as yours, at times, can be overwhelming.

However, most travelers tend to face one problem- finding healthy food. As harmless as it may sound, traveling to a foreign place can take a toll on your health if you do not take proper care of your diet. To avoid such a casualty, you should strive to find and eat healthy food. Having healthy, wholesome meals would keep your gut satisfied, and you would not crave junk food.

Let’s take a look at some effective ways to pack satisfying and healthy food while on a road trip:

Prepare the Night Before

You can find many healthy food options that do not require cooking. It is all the more convenient to prepare them, especially while traveling. We all know how much planning goes on a road trip, so it becomes imperative that we try to be organized as much as possible. The best choice would be to get sandwiches. You can make and refrigerate them the previous night.

Also, make sure to carry fruits and nuts. Nuts make for great snacks to munch on in between meals, or when you are low on energy. Having some protein bars and shakes is also a good idea to give you an instant bout of energy. Don’t forget to keep your favorite drinks as well. Keeping Stella Rosa Black wine bottle and another glassware in a suitcase is highly recommended to keep them from breaking.

Keep Them Accessible

A lot of the preparation for a road trip also goes into packing the right things. And also packing them in the right way. There are things which you might need but not right away. So, you can keep them underneath. And then there are those that you would need every so often.

For things like these, you should make sure that they are well within your reach. Ideally, the snacks should be kept on the top, so that they are easily accessible. It is because even when you might have carried them with yourself, but when you would require extra efforts to reach out for these things, and that too during a journey, that might get frustrating. It might further lead to you wanting to eat from outside instead. There is nothing wrong with food from other places.

Except for the fact that you can never be sure how they are going to affect your system. It is also quite easy to feel hungry when your system is low on sugar. It is also when a bite of chocolate would give you the boost you need. We like to carry a small chocolate box with us while on a road trip.

Fill Up Your Water

We cannot stress this enough. When on a trip, water runs up quite fast. It is why, every time you come across a source, make sure to fill up your bottles. It is pretty easy to believe that you can buy mineral water bottles wherever you go. However, you can never be too sure. Besides, stacking up on bottles is never a good idea.

Especially when you can have free access to water. The only thing you need to be wary of is where to find these sources. And, when you do find them, do not miss the chance of filling up your bottles. We are putting a lot of stress on this one because there might be times when you would face a water shortage in your destination.

It is not a rare phenomenon. Even more so if you are visiting small, quiet places with not much development, these places are lovely but not every service would be readily available there. If you are someone who loves to drink, you can carry a bottle of your favorite Stella Rosa Black with you and pop it open after reaching your destination. Nothing as relaxing as opening a cold one after a long journey.

When Driving Alone

It is more of a cautionary note. Do not keep any snack within your arm’s reach when you are driving. It gets tempting to want to munch on some snacks when you are driving all alone. However, you would want to avoid that if you do not want any scope for car accidents. It is even more dangerous when you want to open a pack of chips or a can of food. So, you might want to keep your snacks at the back of your seat, rather than on the passenger seat. You can save that one for your water bottle.

While for snacking, you can always stop at a gas station or anywhere where you would take some break and have your snacks peacefully. We have already highlighted the kind of food that make for a great snacking experience while on a road trip. These would mostly consist of fruits, nuts, cookies, and digestive biscuits. These perfectly fit the bill of healthy snacking.

Traveling alone can give you a very unique & peaceful experience. Traveling can also help you to heal yourself. Just Breathe Mag will tell you how.

Bad Weather Rescue

If you are out camping, there are chances that you might face bad weather. And when it is pouring, you cannot be guaranteed to have a nice breakfast. It gets a little frustrating, especially after a long journey. When you have just arrived from a tiresome journey, a good breakfast is the least you can ask for.

However, you cannot ask for many luxuries. Circumstances get worse when the weather is bad. But do not get disheartened. Even if you would not get to have your favorite breakfast, you can still replace it with avocados and peanut butter. You can use crackers and spread the peanut butter on it.

Not to forget how a glass of Remy Martin Louis Xlll can make any breakfast delicious, so get them packed when going out camping. The healthy element is not compromised. The taste has also been retained. You can also carry your whey protein for a morning dose of proteins and nutrition.

Stack up on Extra Napkins

We have already mentioned carrying napkins during your journey. However, we would like to focus exclusively on this on a final note. This is because when you are on a journey, eating while on the move can get really messy. This is primarily the reason you should be carrying enough napkins with you to last your entire trip. You do not need to carry all of them from home.

When you are visiting a hotel or have food delivered to you, you can expect to have extra napkins that you can save for later. Do it with no guilt. After all, staying neat is our first priority. This makes the journey enjoyable. A messed up car and/or vehicle would result in your journey being not as good as you must have imagined it to be. And, that is the last thing you would want after spending your time and savings on a trip.

Insulated Growlers

A less predictable and yet important addition to this list is an insulated growler. It is when on a journey that would not want to prepare food by yourself. An insulated growler can keep food and drinks warm for over 12 hours. So, if you would want to enjoy a warm cup of coffee or tea in the course of your journey, you can easily do so with the help of this instrument. Make sure to it carry along filled with hot coffee or tea.

This is also a great kick start when you are tired during the journey. Besides, you can save a lot by not buying food and preparing your own. This also prevents the possibility of contracting any diseases from consuming food/drink from a foreign place.

So, these are the various ways we can ensure satisfying and healthy food on a road trip. You can optimize or tweak these tips in your own way and improve the quality of your journey food. You are the boss! However, make sure you are sticking to healthy snacks only and keep junk food to the minimum. Ending up with food poisoning is the last thing you would ask for in a vacation.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you.
