So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn some of the things you need to know about eating healthily during your holiday.
What to eat on vacation?
Everyone dreams of spending their vacations by the sea. You will be able to enjoy your days and take time to rest and relax. However, it is also an opportunity to take care of yourself and your health. If you don’t usually have time to cook good food for your family, now is the time to do so.
Indeed, because of the boom in take-out and prepared meals, many people have forgotten the benefits of a good home-cooked meal. Yet, eating fresh produce allows you to take better advantage of its nutritional quality. All the other nutrients they contain are still there. So take advantage of this and fill up on vitamins.
Opt for a well-balanced breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, a phrase you heard a thousand times as a child. Every day, you’re used to eating breakfast in a hurry, but during vacations, you have plenty of time. So make the most of it. Summer is fruit season.
If you are vacationing in a seaside area, there is no shortage of fruit. For breakfast, you can eat them raw, make jam or juice. Also, have yogurt or soya if available. Don’t forget bread to fill up vitamins and minerals. Choose bread with high fiber content, such as wholemeal or oat bread.
Choose a complete meal at lunchtime.
During vacations, people spend their days at the beach or visiting the city. After all, wasn’t that the point of going on a trip? To go sightseeing and discover the sights of the country to visit? For once, avoid ready-made meals and fast food. Instead, opt for a small picnic in the forest or beach. Many vacationers currently prefer to rent a mobile home, especially for large families. It is less expensive and provides more freedom and comfort.
Indeed, by opting for a mobile home, you have a small kitchen and the necessary cooking equipment. It is more economical and allows you to eat fresh local products. You will have the chance to eat fresh vegetables and seafood. These are low in calories and rich in amino acids and lean proteins. Eating them fresh (preferably) is therefore very beneficial for your health.
Eating more salads
On vacation, the weather and the heat make us prefer light meals! This is good news because it opens the door to a wide choice of salads, some better than others!
To eat healthy on vacation, don’t deprive yourself of salads if you feel like it! Restaurants know how to propose delicious recipes, from the most classic to the most exotic. And it’s the opportunity to take advantage of summer vegetables (because the choice is more varied at this time of year)!
