Quick and Easy Summer Travel Tips
Whether you’re chasing adventure or hanging out on the beach, nothing keeps you going like delicious, metabolism-boosting food. Even if you’re not cooking for yourself, these tips will help you give your body more of what it needs to enjoy every moment of your getaway!
Keep a “Crash Stash” Handy
Having a healthy snack handy will help you power through anything – even hotel room mixups and flight delays! Some FMD-friendly foods that travel well are:
- Fresh oranges, tangerines, apples, pears, and kiwis.
- Easy-eat veggies like carrots and celery sticks, bell pepper or jicama slices, and snap peas. Add hummus or nut butter for a satisfying dip!
- Nitrite-free jerky – yum!
- Raw almonds, cashews, pecans, pistachios, sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.
Look for eggs, fresh fruits, and unsweetened oatmeal. (Carry your own packets of stevia to sweeten it up!)
Stick to your guns! Look for simple dishes like grilled meats and fresh or steamed veggies (hold the butter) as a side, so you know exactly what you’re getting and what it’s been cooked in. Whole grains like brown rice and quinoa make great side dishes too! Here are some of my favorite tips for dining out on the Fast Metabolism Diet.
Beware the Salad…
…dressing, that is! Salads are great for you, but there may be added sugar in the dressing, ready and waiting to bog your metabolism. Don’t get tricked into believing it’s “healthy” just because it’s a salad. If you’re getting a salad with meat, make sure it’s grilled and not breaded. It’ll make for a great, light salad you’ll feel good about eating.
