Presentation Transcript
plan your food itinerary
Plan Your Food Itinerary
  • When you arrange your flight, request a healthier meal option if food is served.
  • Call the hotel ahead of time and ask about:
      • a room with a refrigerator so you can store heart healthy snacks such as fruit
      • nearby grocery stores and delis, which serve as better sources for healthy food options than fast food restaurants
prepare for take off
Prepare for Take-Off
  • Eat a heart healthy meal before you leave. Your journey will be more comfortable and you’ll be more energized upon arrival.
  • Get a good night’s sleep. Sleep deprivation causes a hormone to release that makes you crave sweet, high-calorie foods.
  • Drink plenty of water before and during your flight. Dehydration can cause fatigue—a common side effect of travel. Did you know dehydration can also affect your blood pressure?

  • Low sugar snack bars

Buy and stock your hotel room with heart healthy snacks such as

  • 100 percent juices or water
  • Low fat dairy products
  • Dried or fresh fruits*
  • Vegetables
  • Raw nuts

*Wash local fresh fruit well with bottled water and a clean towel.

Eating Out

Eating out is part of traveling. You can eat heart healthy if you know how.

  • Choose restaurants that offer healthy choices.
  • Favor healthy options like vegetables, lean meats and whole grains.
  • Think about what you want to order in advance. You’ll be less likely to be tempted by descriptions, sights and smells.
  • Ask how meals are prepared and what ingredients are used. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.
  • Get your food made to order. Ask for sauces and dressings on the side. Ask to substitute less healthy sides with a heart healthier option.
  • Practice portion control. The best way not to overeat is to order less. Choose healthy appetizers as a main course, order a la carte or share food with a companion.
