 Eating Healthy On The Run

Traveling on the go or around the
home, you don't need to give up healthy eating
simply because you are on the run.  The fact is,
healthy eating is even more important when your
trying to keep up with a busy schedule.

Having a good diet will help your body to handle
stress better.  As you hustle about, a healthy meal
is probably the last thing you think about.  The
following tips can help you eat when your on the go.

Tempting menus, large portions, and a festive
atmosphere, it's easy to skip healthy eating.  It's
okay to splurge every now and then, although you'll
pack on a lot of weight if you make it a habit. 
When you eat out at restaurants, always be smart
about it.

Airports can be a very stressful place, although
you shouldn't scrap your diet because of it.  Eat
because you are hungry, not because of stress,
boredom, or to kill time.

In your car
Have healthy snacks in your car at all times
So that when you get hungry - you have them.

At home
Evenings and mornings are busy times in most homes.
Making the time to eat can be hard, although you
shouldn't run out the door without eating breakfast
first.  Cereal with milk, a banana, muffin, or even
a bagel is a great way to start the day.

Anytime you are on the go, always make sure that you
make the right food decisions.  You can take healthy
food with you if you need to, so that you have it
when you need it.  Eating healthy on the go is easy
to do, once you know how.  Never sacrifice healthy
food for junk, as your body will regret it later

 Eating Healthy On A Budget

If you have problems serving healthy foods because
of the prices, you'll find these tips to be just
what you need to eat healthy on a budget.

1.  Eliminate junk food
Doing your shopping on your own is the easiest way
to shop, as children and sometimes spouses are
usually the ones requesting junk food.  Shopping
alone will prevent this, and ensure that you only
buy the foods you need.

2.  Water or milk instead of soft drinks
You can still enjoy your favorite drinks at a
sporting event or night out, although you should
stick with the smallest size when shopping to save
money and calories.  Children and even adults need
milk or milk products on a daily basis.  Milk will
also help you get strong and provides calcium for
healthy bones and healthy teeth.

3.  Buy fruits in quantity
Whne they are in season, buy fruits in quantity
and freeze any extras.  You can buy several pounds
this way, and freeze extras to have them when the
fruit goes out of season.  Wash the fruit well,
remove any spoiled pieces, dry thoroughly, then
freeze in plastic zipper bags.

4.  Meats and beans
Meats and beans are the best sources for protein.
Lean meat is more expensive than meats with a lot
of fat.  Canned beans are a great deal as well,
as they give you protein at a great price.

5.  Beans as a substitute
You should use beans a substitute for meat on a
frequent occasion.  There are several varieties,
so you can prepare them in a crock pot, so when
you return home they are ready to consume.

The USDA recommends eating beans at least 4 times
per week.  If you experience gas after eating
beans you should try washing them, covering them
with water, bringing the water to a boil, then
draining it off and refilling the pot. 

6.  If you live in a coastal area or an area
where fish are around, make that an integral
part of your diet.  You can catch them from the
lakes or rivers, saving money in the process.

7.  Peanut butter is great for those on a budget
as it's popular with almost everyone.  You can
use it for sandwiches instead of eating hot
dogs.  It does need to be refrigerated, although
bigger jars can last you for weeks.

8.  You should fill up with foods that have a high
content of water.  Watermelon, salads, and even
sugar free gelatin are all great examples. 

Eating healthy is always something you can't go
wrong with.  You can eat healthy for just a few
bucks, which makes it perfect for those on a
budget. Now, you don't need a lot of money to have
the lifestyle and health you've always wanted.

 Eating Healthy When Eating Out

When you go out to a restaurant to eat, you probably
don't watch your calories very closely.  To assist you
with your calorie watching when dining out, these
tips will help you make the most of it.

-  Order salad dressings or sauces on the side,
as this way you have control over how much you add
to your meal.

-  When you order grilled fish or vegetables, you
should ask that the food be grilled without butter
or oil, or prepared with very little or either or.

-  Anytime you order pasta dishes, be on the lookout
for tomato based sauces instead of the cream based
sauces.  Tomato based sauces are much lower in fat
and calories, and tomato sauce can even be counted
as a vegetable!

-  You should always try to drink water, diet soda,
or tea instead of soda or beverages that contain

-  If you order dessert, share with a friend. Half
of the dessert will equal half of the calories.

-  When you choose a soup, remember that cream
based soups are higher in fat and calories than
other soups.  A soup can be a great appetizer, as
most are low in calories and you fill you up pretty

-  When ordering a baked potato, ask for salsa instead
of sour cream, butter, cheese, or even bacon.  Salsa
is very low in calories and provides a healthy
alternative with plenty of flavor and spice.

-  When you are full, stop eating.  Listen to your
body and what it tells you.

-  If you get full, take half of your meal home. 
The second portion of your meal can serve as a second
meal later.  This way, you get two meals for the
price of one.

-  If you're looking to eat less, order two appetizers
or an appetizer and a salad as your meal.

-  If you get a choice of side dishes, get a baked
potato or steamed vegetables instead of french

-  Always look for food on the menu that's baked,
grilled, broiled, poached, or steamed.  These types
of cooking use less fat in the cooking process and
are usually much lower in calories.

-  Plain bread or rolls are low in both fat and
calories.  When you add the butter and oil, you
increase the fat and calorie intake.

-  As key ingredients to your meal, choose dishes
with fruits and vegetables.  Both fruits and
vegetables are great sources of dietary fiber as
well as many vitamins and minerals.

-  Choose foods made with whole grains, such as
whole wheat bread and dishes made with brown rice.

-  If you crave dessert, look for something with
low fat, such as berries or fruit.

-  Always remember not to deprive yourself of the
foods you truly love.  All types of foods can fit
into a well balanced diet.

 Eating Healthy On Vacation

It can be very tempting to abandon your good sense
of healthy eating on vacation.  Although you may
strive for healthy eating, it's easy to drift off
and grab an ice cream cone here and there. There
are however, ways to watch what you eat on

It's easier than ever these days to request a low
fat or vegetarian meal on airplane flights.  If
you choose to instead drive to your destination,
the quest to find healthy food can get a bit more

Rather than simply relying on greasy foods for
nutrition, pack some nutritious foods in a cooler
full of ice packs.  Fruits and vegetables, crackers,
yogurt, and sandwiches are all great to have with
you on the road. 

Once you arrive at your hotel, you should do
yourself a favor and turn the minibar key down - as
this helps to avoid the temptation.  If your hotel
offers a continental breakfast, stick to fruits,
cereals, and proteins.  If your hotel has a stove
or microwave, consider bringing your own healthy
food with you.

If you simply must eat out, do so only when you
are hungry.  Restaurants will usually serve large
portions, so be careful.  If you do go a bit over
on a meal, simply cut back on the next. 

If you find it hard to fit in three square meals
a day, try to fit in six smaller meals or snacks,
as your body needs fuel every four hours or so.
When you eat out, avoid appetizers.  Whatever you
do, do not miss any meals.

When it's possible, you should avoid eating large
meals at night.  When your body gets ready for
sleep and slows down, it also burns calories at a
much slower pace.  Never eat bread before bed, and
make sure to avoid the butter.  Choose fish or
poultry for your meal instead, and include
vegetables as a side dish. 

Even though it may sound hard, eating healthy on
vacation isn't really that difficult.  All you have
to do is use a little will power, and pass up
foods that you know aren't good for you.  This
way, you'll enjoy healthy eating and a healthy
lifestyle wherever you go.

The next time you go on a vacation, always remember
that eating healthy is a way of life.  You can
afford to get something you crave, although you
shouldn't make a habit of it.  One ice cream
cone or a pizza isn't going to matter - as long as
you know when to stop.
