Eating Healthy While Traveling

[This article is part of The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan Coaching Program, an ongoing series on The How and Why of Eating Healthy. Read the whole series to date.]

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.I will often have patients remark on how they can't eat healthy while they're traveling. This comes from people who only travel occasionally, for pleasure, as well as those who make a living on the road. Just like at home, planning is the key to eating healthy on the road. Thinking about what and when you are going to eat beforehand makes all the difference.

I spend a fair amount of time traveling, both for Dr. Gourmet as well as for pleasure, and not long ago attended a wedding in California. As with other travel, weddings are an opportunity for overindulgence, but you can eat well and eat healthy with a bit of planning. My recent trip to California is a good example of this planning.

Featured Recipes

Grouper with Lemon Dill Butter

DillLemon and dill go together really well, especially in this butter sauce. This is such an easy recipe and you can use the butter on almost anything. It works well on pan roasted chicken breasts, sautéed shrimp or even seared pork chops.

Creamed Peas

Roasted GarlicWhen I started on this recipe I was going to make a traditional creamy peas. They were good, but the mustard and tarragon makes this really special.
