How to become a travel gourmet

20th June 2018 I by Katja Krause

When we travel, it feels like a lot of fun and adventure after all. But eating on planes or at rest stops is usually unhealthy and not tasty. Top chef Anthony Bourdain once replied to Bon Appetit's question whether it eats airplane food: "Never. No one has ever felt better after eating plane food. I think people only eat it because they are bored. I don't eat on planes. I like to arrive hungry."

Think about what you want to eat first and then choose where.

Drink a lot of water, because water gives you a lot of energy.

Take time to eat, sit down and take a break.

Taking your own food on the road is an easy way to do something good for your diet. This not only gives you more control, it also saves you a lot of money. Suitable are e.g. banana red, eggs and wholemeal rolls. These contain many dietary fibres and make you full for a long time.

Nuts, fresh fruit, vegetables, energy balls or dried fruit are particularly suitable snacks.

Keep trying to follow your usual eating routine. It is best to visit local markets and buy fresh fruit and vegetables to cook for yourself. This way you will not only eat healthy, but also inexpensively.
