Struggle to Hit The Bathroom When Ya Travel? (You’re Not Alone)
Which makes sense: we’re likely eating on a different schedule, eating foods out of our usual, off our sleep routine, maybe (or maybe not) staying on top of our hydration game, & stress is most def high since we’re out of our element?
Thankfully, a little prep and thoughtful thinking can minimize digestive woes with ease ??♀️
Tips on Optimizing Digestion While Traveling:
⚡️Prioritize Sleep: try to hold as close to usual bedtime routine as possible.
⚡️Prioritize Fiber: @Rxbars, instant oatmeal, avocados, chia seeds, and berries are easy ways to get it in. 25-35g or bust ??
⚡️Hydrate: Set an alarm on your phone as a reminder to drink fluids every few hours (bodyweight in lbs / 2 in oz, + 15oz for every hr of exercise)
⚡️Hold Food Routine: Eat as close to your usual schedule as possible. Every few hours, make sure something goes in your pie hole
⚡️Travel w electrolytes: Nuun tabs are super easy & portable. Alternatively, swing by a grocery store & snag coconut water
⚡️Move: It may
⚡️Prioritize Veggies: Veggies can be hard to come by at both restaurants & airports. Swing in a grocery store & stock up. Aim for easy-to-digest stuff like bells, shrooms, carrots, & zukes
⚡️Keep Food Simple & Well Rounded: Aim for a protein + carb + fat + veggie at every meal
⚡️Watch the Caffeine: It can either help “get things moving” or contribute to constipation??♀️
⚡️Travel with digestive enzymes to take with meals (we love @nowfoodsofficial Super Enzymes)
