Healthy Snacks To Take On Vacation
Vacations are times when you want to throw caution to the wind and enjoy every moment to the fullest. Trying out new and exotic foods and eating liberal helpings of your favorite foods may become a routine by the time your vacation ends. But you may have to pay for that with weight gain, diarrhea, dysentery, constipation and other gastrointestinal problems. No matter where you go, finding healthy food on the road can be challenging. One way to solve this problem is to pack you own food. Here are some healthy snacks that are both portable and tasty.
Fresh fruits are ideal for taking on a vacation. Fruits are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, dietary fibers and slow-digesting carbohydrates to keep you healthy and your digestive system working smoothly. They also contain antioxidants that help prevent irritating and damaging skin conditions such as acne while you are on the road. According to a Harvard University report, dark colored fruits contain more antioxidants than bland colored fruits. Apples, oranges and bananas are rich in antioxidants. These are also easy to carry and remain fresh for many days.
Nuts are not only tasty and nutritious, they are also easy to pack and carry, durable, and can be eaten at any time. They are rich in proteins, monounsaturated fats, vitamin E and dietary fiber. Monounsaturated fats are good for the heart. Vitamin E can reduce LDL cholesterol and is also good for your heart and skin. Dietary fibers are required by your digestive system. However, you should avoid choosing nuts that have been processed with fat, sugar or sodium, as these negate the benefits of the other ingredients. Ideal nuts for vacations include almonds, cashew nuts, pistachio nuts and Brazil nuts.
Whole grain snacks like granola bars, whole-wheat tortilla wraps and brown rice cakes contain carbohydrates that give you the energy you need for your holiday activities like swimming, walking and cycling. They can also reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Hard Boiled Eggs:
Hard boiled eggs are rich in protein, and the yolk is packed with a compound called lutein which reduces the risk of macular degeneration, a medical condition which may result in loss of vision. But more importantly, hard boiled eggs give you energy for your activities.
