Table of Contents
In this post, I’m going to offer a few simple tips and why you should always try to stick to a diet healthy plan for traveling. This, especially important if you are traveling abroad to a foreign destination.
I know a big part of a long awaited vacation is to let loose and forget about trying to eat right and stay healthy. Well, things have changed over the years, and today it is especially important to stay on track and to not let things get away from you.
For us baby boomers, even more so and particularly in what we eat and drink while away.
Here is a quick but very informative YouTube video on making sure to pack some healthy snacks when traveling away from home. Something we always do and make sure we have added it to our travel packing list.

Tips For Keeping A Healthy Diet During Travel
Diet Healthy Plan For Traveling – Water
Sure you can go out and have a great time, indulge, forget about your stress and worries while away, but take a few moments from the day and be sure to exercise and eat some healthy food as well.
When we’re away on vacation, we always try to make sure to eat balanced meals with plenty of fluids (water). Always include some form of exercise each day as well.
Eating and exercise can really help, especially when traveling abroad. Your system has to adjust to often drastic changes you may experience while away.
I always encourage people to drink plenty of purified water during the day. Keeping hydrated is vitally important, keeps the system flushed and also can help reduce the symptoms of jet lag tremendously!
Drinking lots of water can help reduce the chances of getting sick, and may also help prevent annoying ailments such as;
✔ Travelers Diarrhea;
✔ Jet Lag;
✔ Lack of energy.
These are just to name a few of those annoying travel illnesses many people experience when traveling to different countries.
A Balanced Diet Healthy For Vacations
Diet Healthy Plan For Traveling – Balanced Diet Helps Prevent Illness
Staying healthy and trying to eat a balanced and healthy diet will certainly increase your chances of having an illness free, safe and enjoyable vacation.
Be on guard at all times when drinking water in restaurants, or any other place. I always ask if the water is purified, if not, I stay away.
Without a doubt, drinking strange water is the number one cause of contracting those nasty gastrointestinal issues as listed above.
Also, if you like ice in your drinks, make sure you know where that ice has come from! 😕
Ice Cubes Need To Be Purified Too!
As difficult as it may be, try to eat one healthy meal a day, along with some fruits and vegetables. It really is not that difficult when you just take a moment and think about what you are about to order from the restaurant menu.
Try to include a healthy salad, soup and so on, instead of ordering every meal that is loaded with fat, calories and has very little nutritional value to boot!
Ordering healthy items from the menu just takes a little will power!
Ingredient To A Healthy Vacation
Diet Healthy Plan For Traveling – Fitness
We all love a carefree vacation! After all, isn’t that what holiday time is all about? 🙂
Certainly, but did you know that the average weight gain per person on a typical seven night cruise vacation is 8 pounds?
Yep and you know why?
Because those average people did nothing but eat and eat, with little or no exercise at all during that time. I know from experience, one of the biggest highlights and enjoyment of cruise holidays or those amazing all inclusive vacations is the fantastic dining! 😯
I’ve certainly overindulged many times on our previous cruise vacations with my family, but at the same time, I always made sure I worked off those extra calories consumed each day.
Part of the fun of cruising is getting involved in the endless amount of activities while on board ship.
There are excellent fitness studios with exercise classes, walking/jogging tracks, fun and games and so much more to keep you entertained and healthy at the same time.
I love to eat plenty while away, but I make sure I burn those excess calories before or after indulging. It really is not that hard, and your body will love you for it! All it takes is a little will power and effort on your part.
If it is a cruise or one of those all inclusive resort vacations you are embarking on, be sure to maintain a healthy diet while enjoying your holidays at the same time!
