I have traveled to over 50 countries on seven continents, more than half of which were visited solo. I love traveling, being outdoors, and hiking. I hope to inspire others to travel and explore further, even if that means going alone.
Hey, I'm Ashley!
Navigating the vacation buffets and poolside drinks can be tempting, but it’s totally doable to eat healthy on vacation! With some smart planning, you can indulge in new foods, with conscious bites here and there – what’s a little relaxation without something delicious?
When I’m on the road, I incorporate the below meals into my daily routine. I always ensure a combination of health, convenience, and culture.
Breakfast is a crucial part of my daily routine and if I’m at a hotel, it’s no exception! Sure, some hotels have lackluster eggs which can be tough to stomach – but they’re still packed with protein so I muscle through.
If the pickings are slim on breakfast options then yogurt, hard boiled eggs or bananas always do the trick for me.
When time is an issue though (which usually happens when you’re up early exploring!) nothing beats whipping out a trusty protein bar – they keep me fueled all morning long!
Lunchtime is all about balance. I don’t want a carb overload and weigh myself down for dinner, so my go-to options are hearty sandwiches packed with protein and flavor. Yum!
Vacations are the perfect time to let loose and pamper yourself, especially when it comes to dinner!
I always make sure that my vacation involves a ton of activities so I can indulge guilt-free in whatever local culinary delights await. Live life on the edge and go for those calorie-rich dishes – your taste buds will thank you!
For me, vacation is usually go-go-go! From sunrise to sunset, I’m exploring as much of the destination as possible, so snacking doesn’t end up on my itinerary. But who says you can’t enjoy a quick treat here and there?
Ditch the sugary sips when you head out for vacation – opt for something zesty and light like a skinny mescal margarita or your favorite wine! You’ll feel great and won’t risk that dreaded post-cocktail sluggishness.
Overall, to eat healthy on vacation, I fight the temptation to indulge in carbs and instead use self-discipline to stick with my high protein diet – no bread baggage here!
