March is National Nutritional Month and a great time to establish healthy eating habits. Because it can be especially difficult to establish healthy habits during travel, we asked Crowe’s road warriors – who spend at least 30 percent of their time on the road – to share how they stay healthy on the go. Here are six tips they shared:
  • “If you know you have a bigger meal coming up at dinner, try to balance it out with a lighter meal like salad or soup for lunch. Also, grab a bottled water at the hotel and refill it throughout the day to stay hydrated.” Nina Fite (Grand Rapids)

  • “Buy food at the grocery store and make meals in the hotel room instead of eating out. If possible, choose an extended stay hotel that has a kitchen so cooking is a viable option.” Ron Gasink (Oak Brook)

  • “Eat smaller portions such as dividing your sandwich into two smaller meals in the afternoon to avoid overeating.” Silvinder Gill (Grand Rapids)

  • “Eat a big, non-pastry filled breakfast such as an omelet with vegetables. This protein-filled breakfast fuels your body for those long work days.” Scott Hicks (Columbus)

  • “Fill up your travel bags with cliff bars, trail mix or other filling snacks. These are good for after a workout and will keep you from hitting a drive thru on the way back to the hotel or airport.” Curt Gendron (Chicago)

  • “Be picky. The ability to customize your order in restaurants helps make healthy eating decisions easy. Subbing veggies or selecting chicken instead of red meat is a great way to eat leaner.” Michael Griffin (Oak Brook)
