Healthy Eating on the Go

Today's blog is about maintaining a healthy diet while traveling--an especially relevant topic for one of our busy program managers. Her latest project will take her from our home in the D.C. area all the way to Alabama, Pennsylvania, and even Quebec!

When you're stuck in an airport (as she was for several hours yesterday), how do you maintain a healthy diet? Eating healthy at the airport may seem like a challenge, but the Harvard Business Review blog has some common-sense tips for doing just that.

Americans spent $3.2 billion on food and drink at airports in 2008, the Harvard blog reports, and I bet most of those dollars were spent on unhealthy fast food. But it doesn't have to be that way. Here are three of the Harvard blog's recommendations:
  • Choose your airports carefully. Some have better restaurant options than others.
  • If you have time, eat at sit-down restaurants that will give you more healthy choices.
  • Bring your own food. TSA guidelines allow passengers to bring certain food items from home, so by all means do it!
For more details, check out the full Harvard Business blog post. In the meantime, why not leave a comment and share your own tips for eating healthy on the go?
