Of course, it all depends on the trip. In exceptional situations, I sometimes also eat things, that I usually avoid to eat in my daily life.
After all, being invited to the house of locals, who offered me an instant soup with some artificial ingredients, I won’t ask them: “Excuse me, is this soup with monosodium glutamate? Could you cook for me whole-grain pasta?”. In such cases, I just appreciate what I got, and I even ask for more (oppss! 😉 )
On the other hand, when I’m going on tour and I know that I won’t be able to buy good food along the way, I always prepare my healthy, travel food kit, such as: fruit, nuts or sliced carrots.
As far as possible, I also:
– Eat at regular intervals
– Start my day with huge, very nutritious breakfast
– Drink lots of water (at least 1.5 liters per day) or coconut water
– Avoid junk food
– Buy products from the farmers’ market than at a supermarket
– Get enough sleep
– Explore cities on foot
– Get around cities by bike (not a motorbike :P)
And how about you? What are your ways to stay healthy while travelling?
Pst! In the picture very fresh and cheap products bought at a local market in Portugal.
