A lot of you had asked about how I don’t gain weight when i’m on vacation so I wanted to dedicate this weeks Honeybee Health post to sharing what I order when we travel. If you girls have been following along over the years I am sure you have heard me say this before but CONSISTENCY is key! When I see people trying these fad diets or juice cleanses I just know they aren’t going to have long term results. Making healthy changes that you can stick with year round is what it’s about ladies! When I travel I know my splurges are most definitely going to be lots of yummy adult beverages (that’s my splurge of choice), so I make sure that my cleaning eating still stays on track! So here are some random shots from our Cayman trip and how I eat while on vacation….
I have to say for me, the hardest part of staying on track on vacation is the airplane/airport food. A lot of times your in a rush or maybe you’re in a section of airport where you don’t have a lot of healthy restaurant options (like Starbucks bc I can always find something healthy there). This trip we barely got on the plane but thankfully a lot of airlines are now carrying healthy snack pack options. I love this one with the hummus and veggies chips and 100 calorie almond pack option! This pack was even more of a score because they had my favorite Brookside chocolate covered berries in a portion sized version! Usually I try to pack my favorite Power Crunch bars (Shared them on SnapChat last week) and my go to “That’s it” fruit bars in my carry on for when I get hungry.
Some people say it’s hard to stay on track while on vacation but for me eating lunch poolside in a bikini is motivation enough not to fill up on fries, sliders and nachos. I always opt for a salad with lean protein and tons of veggies (to balance out all those skinny margaritas right?! 😉
For dinner we started with hummus, pita and veggies and then I just ordered two grilled fish tacos (hold the sauce) and we headed out for frozen yogurt (with lots of yummy toppings 😉 for dessert.
Room Service options are usually always healthy fruit plates or veggie and roasted pepper hummus plates like below!
