Woo-hoo! Vacation time is almost here...
… and usually a time when we slip off our healthy routine
, indulge a little, gain a little weight
, and feel like a dietary failure
by the time we get back home.
Good news – you don’t have to feel like that ever again!
Over the years, we’ve done our fair share of traveling — which has helped us come up with some cool little tricks
to keep you on track!
#1 – Bring it with you
It doesn’t take much. Just bring some BarleyMax in a zipper lock bag
, a mini-blender
for your hotel room, and make sure you get a room with a mini-fridge
Then shop the local Walmart when you arrive. Get some distilled water for your BarleyMax, some spinach and frozen fruit
for smoothies, and some healthy snacks
. (CarrotJuiceMax is also a great way to keep juicing while you’re on the road.)
#2 – There’s an app for that
Snacks and a mini-blender takes care of breakfast, but unless you’ve booked a suite with a full kitchen, you’re going to have to eat out at some point.
There’s a vegetarian restaurant app for Android
phones, and one for iPhones
, too. No more guess work!
#3 – Guerrilla gourmet tactics
When one of our staff member's family couldn’t find healthy dining options, they chose a burger joint that offered vegetarian patties. Then they used the “fixings bar” like a salad bar
, creating their own off-the-menu side salad. There are lots of other good ideas in this article, too.
#4 – Hit the steak house
Believe it or not, sometimes the best place for The Hallelujah Diet
is a fancy steak house. They insist on high quality ingredients, so you know they’ll have great salad.
The chef will usually jump at the chance to create a custom vegetarian dish by request, too.
#5 – Don’t forget your wrench
Diet aside, you also want to keep your body healthy
in other ways. Bring your workout clothes
and enjoy a walk in your vacation surroundings.
Plus (keep this one a secret) we actually bring our home shower filter
with us and attach it to the hotel bath fixture so that we can have chlorine-free showers. Crescent wrench? Check!
