I love travel. And I love eating healthy. Unfortunately, the two can be very difficult to put together, especially when you’re eating out 2-3 meals a day! When we decided to head down for a little beach vacay, I made sure to try to stay on track by finding some healthy cafes in the area and packing a few of my go-to staples. Before we get started, remember to enter my Journey Bar giveaway! Winners are picked on Thursday!
Thanks to Jenn for the WIAW party!
For breakfasts, I have basically been scrounging for whatever healthy thing I can find, even if it’s a bit unusual. Example 1: Avocado+Hummus+Lemon Juice on sprouted toast…suprisingly really delicious and filling! Plus more of my favorite combo of organic egg whites and hummus on hemp bagels.
MGN Travel Tip 1.) Embrace having eggs for breakfast. Especially in restaurants, they are a way better option than sugary pancakes, french toast, etc.!
And this is the result of staying dangerously close to an organic juice bar… Apple Ginger and Carrot Beet!:)
MGN Travel Tip 2: Always bring a loaf of good bread and a jar of healthy nut butter. Easiest meal ever!
Looking up healthy restaurants is the way to go! For lunch the first day, we had a grilled vegetable, brown rice, and tofu plate along with a brown rice curry bowl that was to die for at a little place we would’ve drove right by without a doubt!
Yesterday we found an adorable little health cafe called the Naked Cafe, and naturally I was all for it! We ordered the Goddess Wrap (sesame ginger tofu, mushrooms, brown rice, vegetables, etc. in a spinach tortilla) and a custom chicken breast wrap with their homemade black bean hummus. All I can say is that this plate was empty:)
As always, I made sure I was loaded down with a
insane amount plethora of bars to take with me! I finally got around to trying out a Perfect Foods Bar, which was amazing! The bar has a little too much sugar to be a daily snack for me, though. Next up is the OH Bar, which was also incredible! Review coming soon:)
MGN Travel Tip 4: Bars, trail mix, nuts, and more [healthy!] bars! Keep a few in your purse and you won’t be caught starving with nothing but a donut shop around.
Mmm…Kombucha in Trilogy flavor! I normally go for the MultiGreen when I splurge on one but lately I’ve had about 5 people say it looks like I’m drinking pond scum…yummy.
My idea of road trip food…:)
Another health food store find…Vegan Curry Nori Wraps, which I haven’t tried yet. They definitely look interesting! With no shortage of fresh fruit…it’s summer after all!
MGN Travel Tip 5: It’s all about the little choices! A dozen small good choices will help even out a bad one! 🙂
There you have it! I have a myriad of reviews on some amazing products coming up soon as well as a few great recipe posts! Check back soon and let me know what you think…your comments make my day!:)
