How to Eat Well on the Road – Good Food in an Airport – Eating Well While Traveling
Eating Well While Travelling
Clif Harski traveled most weeks of a recent year giving workshops for MovNat. During that time, he learned how to eat well on the road, how to plan for travel and how to travel stress-free. In this lecture, he tells the prospective traveler how to plan for healthy eating and stress-free travel.
“What you want to do is eat protein and fat upon waking up, not a carbohydrate-rich meal. It doesn’t matter if it’s complex or simple, just don’t eat carbohydrates in the morning when traveling. If you eat carbohydrates, you’re setting yourself up to eat more during the day due to its interactions. These complex interactions between blood sugar, brain activity and cravings occur when you have carbohydrates in the morning.” ~Clifton Harski

Wow, let’s hear it for serendipity! I’m getting ready to climb on a plane bound for LA tomorrow, and Clifton’s “eating well on the road” pointers will be foremost in my mind. Great advice here on mitigating travel stress and keeping the body well-fueled in the process. And this guy outta know – he’s logged some serious frequent flyer miles during his time with MovNat. Clifton is a personal friend of mine, a damn fine athlete, and a serious student of rock-solid nutrition. Keep your passport stamped and your body optimally fueled – let Clifton show you the way!

I don’t fly much, but I’m on the road at the crack of dawn, and not home until it’s time for a late dinner. Clifton’s talk is chock full of gems to get through any length trip, keeping up good nutrition habits along the way. It’s not HARD hard, it just takes thinking ahead and knowing what to do. This takes care of that; at that point it’s easy.
