Travelers commonly complain that they can’t eat right on the road. Many share tales of gaining weight on a trip. The good news is that with a little planning and common sense, you can eat right and maintain the good habits you follow at home. In this post, we'll share some healthy eating tips that we use in our travels. We hope they will help you too.
We're always in a hurry. Especially when we're hungry. There was once a time when the most convenient food was the salve for our hunger, even if it meant compromising on stale tasting, high-sodium, fattening foods you could prepare in a minute. But it doesn't have to be that way. You can eat wonderfully healthy vegetables, even seafood steamed in a microwave in less time than it would take to heat up a lousy frozen dinner.
About a year ago, we discovered the Lekue silicone microwave steamer (available at Sur La Table and Amazon). We can't recommend it enough.
