Eating on the Fly
I’m not a nutrition expert but I am by now an airport expert. I literally travel all the time to teach women and men how to live healthy vibrant lives. As a certified yoga and dance teacher and registered massage therapist, I know a thing or two about good health, but eating right in airports is pretty challenging. So here a few things I’ve learned about how to keep eating in healthy life affirming way even when you are flying.

My 3 tips for not blowing your healthy diet in airports:

1. Make sure to bring a healthy snack for emergency situations. i.e apple, health bar, nuts and seeds. Hudson books always has packaged nuts/seeds/dried fruit mixes as well if you forget.
2. Hold out for the soups or salads. Its easy to be seduced by the pretzel wagon or the burger joint as you make your way between gates during stop overs. Don’t go for the first thing you see. Sniff around before you bite.
3. Stop at the sit down and order style of restaurants with a real waiter serving you instead of the counter order style, as much as possible. These full menu restaurants seem to have the most and best options for a healthy meal and they are usually pretty quick. If you are in a hurry check with the host whether you can be served in time. They can often give you take out as well.

So you needn’t give up good health when you fly, you just have to know where to hunt down the cleanest options!
