Even if you are accustomed to eating only healthy food prepared in your own kitchen, you should not limit yourself to it on a long car journey on your long-awaited trip. It is always necessary to think carefully what to cook or buy for meals on the go. When you are using car rental under 25 no fee will be taken additionally. It means that you can spend the saved money on tastier food and drinks. Read about some more tips about meals during the car trip.

  • Take as much as possible water from home

The water is different even at the neighboring city. You can always buy bottled water of the same brand, but you still use tap water for brushing your teeth and so on. Water is one of the main factors, which change our digestion. This way it affects in the form of bloating, diarrhea, or, conversely, constipation. That is why it is better to buy bottles of water for yourself and all your family members before the trip.

  • Take fruits on the road

This is just great type of food for travelers. It fits in any, even the smallest handbag. It does not leave stains, it saturates, lifts the mood and the energy level. Both adults and children like eating fruits. It is best to take apples, bananas, oranges or tangerines, pears for your trip. They do not stain, and they are hard enough – these fruits will not be crushed by other baggage. In addition, they leave minimum of waste, which means that you do not have to look for the trashcan after the meal.

  • Proper packaging

To ensure safe storage of foodstuffs, it is important to pack them correctly. Put food in a plastic or glass container (you can buy it at the supermarket), or wrap it in foil. Place vegetables and fruits in a plastic bag. Correctly packing food, you will protect yourself from food intoxication on the road.

Also, try to divide all food into small portions. On the road, you will also need glasses, spoons, forks, bowls and knives. Do not forget about antibacterial wet wipes or a spray antiseptic.

  • Do not abruptly change your food preferences

Surrounding food odors can tempt the appetite. However, it is better not to try much unknown food at the same time. To restrain your appetite, you need to learn how to be distracted. Take interesting magazines and books on the road, a player with good music, grab a laptop with funny movies, comedies.

It will help you pass the long hours of travel and relieve boredom. Communication with other people is also useful and it will distract your attention from food.

  • Car nuances

Going on vacation by car, few people think about healthy eating on the road, relying on sandwiches, hamburgers and coffee in roadside cafes, which can lead to troubles, especially for children. Therefore, the purchase of a small refrigerator or a thermal bag will help to not only maintain good health, but also save money on foodstuffs. In this case, you can take with you a variety of fruits, vegetables, cheese, eggs, yogurts or chocolate and do not worry about their quality for several days.

What is not worth taking on the road?

  • Salads, especially seasoned with mayonnaise and sour cream.
  • Boiled peeled potatoes and other boiled vegetables.
  • Ham and sausages.
  • Fruits and vegetables with damaged skin.
  • Soft-boiled eggs.
  • Boiled fish and meat.

How to restore digestion after the road?

Get ready that in the first 2 days you can have a constipation. This should not bother you, since this is a natural alteration of the digestive system after the change of eating conditions.

In the first days upon arrival, it is necessary to try not to eat too much fatty and meat foods, but to add the following products into the diet:

  • kefir, yogurt and other dairy products;
  • drinking water up to 2-3 liters;
  • dry wine diluted with water (1 to 1);
  • vegetables and fruits rich in pectin and fiber (plums, peaches, apricots, carrots, cabbage, melon, apples, etc.)

Nobody wants to spoil their holidays with food poisoning or allergies, and in order to prevent such troubles, you should adhere to the principles of proper nutrition from the very beginning of the trip, even when you are just still packing.
