One of the toughest things to do while trying to lose or maintain weight is eating while traveling. Especially when you are a foodie or traveling for a week or more without a fridge.
This happened to me last week, and I thought it might be good to open discussion on travel eating tips. Here are the ones I have…but then I have some questions, too. Definitely looking for comments on this post!
With kids, it’s very easy to quickly fall into the “grab and go” wins of fast food. Unfortunately, these options may not always present the healthiest of dining (especially when you’re trying hard to stay on a weight-loss journey and instill good habits in your kids all while balancing all the things). This summer, I was introduced to Healthy Dining Finder as a way to help me make better decisions for the kids (and us adults) when we have to give in to eating dinner on the go.
On September 22, ChopChop (and partners) will be hosting The Big Picnic across the nation. They’ve asked my family to join in, and I am extending the invitation to you, too!
Disclosure: I’m sharing this post as part of a program with The Mission List. I received a ChopChop cookbook and magazine subscription for culinary inspiration; all opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
It’s funny that I am writing a blog post today about being thankful for Healthy Eating when, admittedly, I enjoyed part of a very delicious apple from Applelicious (http://www.apples4you.com/), a local gourmet chocolate apple company. Ahem.
Anyways, I am thankful that a ‘lil over a year ago I began a journey of healthy eating and exercise that has made me feel and look better. You know, healthy eating isn’t all that awful. I enjoy so many delicious recipes, and have even found ways to enjoy my favorite foods without feeling guilty. (Like that apple…I just will exercise more and accommodate by adjusting my other foods when I eat like that.)

Veggies, fruits, lean meats. Greg and I really are not sure these are our kids, but it makes us very happy to know that they are good with the healthy foods we try to give them. It even makes their daddy want to eat a little bit more green and orange, way to go kids!
About a year ago now, we found out we were pregnant with baby number two and about 4 weeks later (or 7 weeks in), my body began its cycle of “I HATE YOU BEING PREGNANT”. I had food aversions to every.single.thing.I.loved. There was no more chicken. No more ice cream. No more fries. Pretty much, I was destined to eat crackers and popsicles like I did with my first baby.
