Eating healthy while away from home

Eating healthy while away from home can be hard. 

I am in Norfolk, Virginia for a week attending job related training. I like it so far. People in my class are authentic leaders. They are committed to improving everyone around them, just as much as they are committed to improving themselves. They are authentic, they project enthusiasm, and most importantly, they care. 

In the morning my only option is eggs, sausage, toast, and some blueberries in the hotel restaurant. Monday lunch was pizza, but today I found a more healthy option. See the picture above. Chicken breast, green beans, mixed vegetables, and spinach on the side. I had water as it contains no sugar or calories. 

Dinners should be less challenging, as I will not be limited to the area where the training is. 

Figuring out how to eat right while away from your routine can be hard, but it is not impossible.


  1. I cut out fried food. That was the number one thing I did and it made a big difference. I cut out soda. I decided to eat more vegetables, fruits, more chicken.

  2. Thank you for posting what you eat. We need a community of people who truly understand the challenges we're facing because they're going through it, too

    1. That helps. I don't have to eat what you eat, but it gives me idea what is possible.

    2. There is an article about it that says that posting pictures of what you eat helps.

  3. Maintaining a steady diet is fairly easy when you’re in the comfort of your own home and regular routine. However, when the summer rolls around or the boss sends you out for work, traveling can pose a major issue for any diet. While traveling in the past, my diet usually went from fairly decent to absolutely horrible in a matter of days.

  4. I love the idea of snapping photos of what you eat. It's a high tech way of writing down what you eat and the best part is the picture can't bend the truth.
