5 Ways to Eat Healthy on the Road


I recently took a trip across America and back, to Boston, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Portland, to be exact. When I asked people what I should do or see I got a lot of responses like, You have to try NY Style Pizza, Chicago Dog, Deep Dish, Lobster Roll, etc. Needless to say eating healthy was not a top priority on my list, but I very quickly realized it was going to have to be if I was to survive this extensive trip. With all the running around that traveling entails it becomes extra important to be eating good foods your body can use. Check out places like Wendy’s for healthier food options and document your trip with the Fresh Pic’d Summer digital scrapbooking app at the same time. Here are some tips and tricks we used on our trip to make sure to keep in check, because we all know It’s Hard to Eat Healthy on the Road.

    Drink Water
    It seems like such a common sense thing, right? Wrong. It's easy to get caught up in sodas and coffees galore. Drinking water is just as important as eating right.
