Healthy Holiday Living: Lunch Tips For Travelers

Posted By Margaret G. Ritchie, Thursday, November 17, 2016

Are you traveling this holiday season for your job? We understand that nutritious eating on the go while getting from place A to place B can be a challenge. Here are tips for eating right at the airport and on the road:

1. Planning ahead saves you time and money. Having snacks on hand will help keep temptation at bay during delays and layovers. Slip some of these security-friendly snacks into your carry-on:

Apples or grapes
Whole grain crackers
Granola bar
Peanut butter sandwich

2. Save money on drinks by bringing a reusable empty water bottle. Bottled water is more expensive in the airport. Fill up your water bottle at a drinking fountain (after you pass through security screening, if flying).

3. Many airport eateries—both fast food and sit down restaurants—offer healthier choices these days. If your travels are long, do a bit of research online to see what’s available at your layover airport. 

4. Keep these healthful tips in mind when ordering at a restaurant:

Order the smallest sandwich, without cheese and sauces.
Request all sauces and dressings on the side, and don’t use the entire portion.
Choose a smaller-size lunch portion, if available.
Split the main dish if the servings are large.
Split the main dish if the servings are large.
Avoid fried meats and sides.
Ask for a salad or vegetables instead of fries.
