A crucial part of making better decisions in trying to live a healthy lifestyle is learning to take a step back and look at the big picture.
When you’re traveling, you don’t have to eat fast food. These are your options off the interstate system:
1) Fasting– Don’t eat at all. Occasionally, this is good for us because it stimulates our hormonal system.
2) Gas Stations– Not the best thing in the world, but nuts and juices are better than all of the other options in gas stations.
3) Dining Apps– This is my favorite. Use Yelp or Urban Spoon to find a local restaurant that has some healthy options. For example, I was driving through Mobile recently and found an excellent Nepali Indian Restaurant called Yak the Katmandu and it was tasty and healthy. I’ve also found some good BBQ places like 3 Pigs, in Headland, AL where the vegetable options are plentiful along with delicious smoked “inside” Boston butt pork.
The next time you travel, consider your options before you eat anything you’ll regret.
