6 Tips for a Healthy Vacation

Good morning! This is the time of the year where students are stressed taking finals, teachers are grading furiously, and many are planning summer vacations. My husband and I  are enjoying a beach vacation. How do you make a vacation fun and healthy? Here are a couple of my tips to a happy, healthy vacation.
  • Pack Healthy Snacks
  • Relax
  • Split a Meal
    • This is an easy, economical way to be healthy. Most restaurant portions are notoriously large. So split and entree and add an extra salad or vegetable side.
  • Pack a Picnic
    • Picnics are a great way to get a variety of healthy foods. It is economical and fun! Simply visit a grocery store on vacation, pick up a checkered cloth, and enjoy time with your family.
  • Hydrate
    • We know hydration is important especially in the summer months. So, keep hydrated by keeping a water bottle handy for each member of your family. And, order water with meals, which is an easy, cheap, healthy choice.
  • Be Physically Active
    • Include physically activity into your vacation just like you do in your life. We will discuss more ways to include physical activity into your vacation later this week.
I hope these ideas will make it easy for you and your family or friends to have a healthy vacation. Stay tuned this week on Instagram, and Twitter for more tips on healthy eating while on vacation.
