You know, I find it hard to say this but I feel like my health has improved through this business trip rather than getting worse. And I haven't really exercised even one hour. But I ate really well.
I would start my day with a Large Mix juice from Arden's Garden, along with a large Ginger shot and an extra juice for later. It was new to me and took some effort but it was awesome for my health. The Ginger was to keep colds&coughs at bay while traveling, it worked. But all the fresh fruits and juices; they've added up.
Then I have avoided Pizza and Pasta, or eating gluten free pasta twice, and I feel great. I have eaten some gluten but I am on gluten-light diet where I eat the least possible gluten. I had rice on many occasions.
So I feel great ! I feel light and I feel my skin looking better. I am curious to see how my bloodwork will look like.
Budget : So just to be clear to people traveling while eating healthy :- this does cost more than fast food. If I need $ 15/day to live on fast food diet, I would need $25-30/day here plus the effort to get to this food (it is not as convenient either). But look at the big picture; would you spend more in healthcare ? I think feeling better at then end of my trip is a good sign that I will not be spending more on healthcare from some chronic disease.
More Specifics for the avid readers/learners :
- I ate the above breakfast + snack every day
- I kept another really healthy natural snack like some raw Cashew+raisin+xyz snack-bar
- lunch was always out but I almost always ate a salad (60-70%), or vegetarian and no cheese, avoided fried.
- dinner was out and at many places. Here are some healthy choices I can suggest:
