Nutrition can be a tough topic when it’s just you in your own kitchen, heading to your own nearest, favorite grocery stores. But when you’re on the go – for work, events, or anywhere else – that makes staying healthy and happy even that much harder.
However, as long as you make some rules for yourself in advance, it should become less of a problem. Five topics in particular to consider include what to eat out at events, out at festivals, meals for at work, the right kinds of calories while out exercising, and then snacks on the road. Take care of these things and you’ll be in the clear.
Out At Events
There are events to go to all over the place. They can be for art, music, local performances, showcases – all sorts of gatherings. They can be for local people, or advertised for tourists. All sizes are applicable. But after a certain size and scope is achieved, food enters the equation. Many events are actually based on foods (like a Girl Scout fundraiser, for example), and obviously in those instances you should partake.
When You’re At Festivals
Festivals are a bit more organized form of event, and there’s guaranteed to be some goodies to eat at these. But unfortunately, fair food is disastrous in terms of nutrition. But, to stay happy, you should at least get to taste everything right! So to make that happen, you can order whatever you want, but it might be a better idea to share everything so that everyone you’re with gets a bite or two, rather than trying to eat a whole elephant ear!
Good Snacks and Meals At Work
Making snacks for work has got to be a priority if you want to stay healthy. Forget your snacks, or maybe your lunch, and you’ll end up either hitting up the vending machines to get a whole lot of bad calories, or end up going out to eat, which will hit your wallet harder than you need.
Positive Calories During Workouts
If you work out on the go, at a gym for instance, then you’re going to want to have the right kinds of calories with you for the type of workout. Muscle building vs. cardio workouts have very different needs, so if you bring the right food (most likely a protein bar and juice drink of some sort), that will keep you on the right path.
Snacks On the Road
And if you spend a lot of time on the road, you know that getting hungry makes you angry, and no one wants an angry driver or passenger. Make some snacks that stay good in the car, and as soon as you feel that first little tinge of irritation, go for the lunch cooler.
