Flying and health are almost never seen in the same sentence. Flying is dehydrating and makes you more susceptible to getting a cold. Airports have little to no healthy food options and the snacks on the airplane are even worse. It can be challenging to find a healthy snack to bring with you on your flight that meets TSA-regulations. I travel almost every week and have had the unfortunate moment of getting my overnight oats and coconut yogurts taken at security. Instead of giving in to eating the unhealthy airport food, see below some healthy food options to bring with you on your next flight.
So you travel for work? So do I. In fact, I get on an airplane twice a week, every week. I know the NYC terminals like the back of my hand. I frequent so often that the barista at Starbucks is convinced that I work there. I change time zones on a weekly basis. I am a Management Consultant.
I came into consulting about a year ago as an experienced hire. As excited as I was about starting my new job, I was also completely worried about maintaining my healthy lifestyle. You eat out everyday? Networking events are key? Is there such thing as ‘The Consulting 15’? It took some trial and error, but here are 6 ways I’ve been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle while constantly traveling.
After a week of traveling for work, I love waking up knowing that I don’t have to rush to Whole Foods or order Ubereats for food that day. I can wake-up Friday mornings ready- to- go and not feel bogged down by grocery runs or spend extra cash to get food delivered. This is because I keep a constant supply of organic produce in my freezer.
