Choosing the RIGHT Thing at the Airport!

Many of us are going to be traveling by plane, train, or automobile over the next few days.  Just a friendly reminder from your favorite fitness friend about the things to be aware of!

1.) FAST FOOD- McDonald's, KFC, Sbarro-- if you don't usually eat it, don't "treat" yourself because it is a holiday.  Remember you are going to be sitting for hours.  It doesn't burn as many calories as you think.

2.) CHIPS/COOKIES/CANDY-- Why mindlessly munch on non healthy treats?  Choose fruit, nuts, or organic fare.  And just because you aren't at the grocery store doesn't mean that you can't read the labels.  Label reading usually helps you choose wisely while on the road.

3.) EAT FRESH!  Avoid the stuff that has been sitting around non refrigerated.  Jet Blue has great fresh selections- check out what I bought to snack on for my six hour flight.

I know all the ingredients in this stuff- no preservatives here!  I also skip on the sauces and dressings.  Let's save the calories for something fun.  Maybe a travel size bag of Blue Terra Chips?

Make mindful choices this holiday season so you don't have to detox come January.  We can do this together!

  1. Why foolishly spend calories on airline food. There will be time for that when cookies are passed around (not that you have to indulge in that either). True, finding something decent at the airport can be challenging - but it's not impossible.

    Nice call on the salad. :)
