Healthy Travel Tips: Keeping Your Health On Track While Traveling

I was honored to be asked to facilitate a couple of Lunch with the Experts table talks at the Your Weight Matters National Convention this year. One of my topics was "On the Road Again - Keeping Your Health On Track While Traveling" I thought I would share the slides from my presentation. Just click on the arrow to move the 14 slides along.


You don't get the benefit of the great chat and shares that happened at the table but I hope my tips, suggestions and resources in the above slides and throughout the blog help those of you reading along stay healthy when traveling for pleasure or work. The slides were meant to encourage conversation at the table so feel free to share any of your staying healthy while traveling tips in the comment section below.

One of the slides above shares some of my go-to snacks and emergency meals I toss in my bag when I'm on the road. They keep me from making poor choices and require no refrigeration. They are great to carry-on the plane saving you from paying $7 for an in flight snack box. Here's a closer look and some online links for the items that may be harder to find.
