Let Meghan Markle Show You How to Eat Healthy While Traveling
Have a Foolproof Breakfast
One thing you can count on for a healthy, hearty breakfast? Avocado toast, like this yummy-looking dish Markle had in London. If you can get it served on multi-grain bread, even better! Travel breakfasts don't have to be fancy. They just need to give you enough fuel for a day of sightseeing... or beach lounging. (If you want to make some avocado toast of your own, check out these 30 Awesome Avocado Toast Recipes.)
Pick Smart Snacks
It's All a Balance
When in Spain, bread is a must, but you can even it out with a hearty salad filled with delicious veggies. "I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends. But at the same time, it's all about balance," she told Best Health
in an interview.
Keep It Simple
You Can Still Eat Clean
Fish, grilled chicken, and veggies are probably pretty similar to what you might eat for a healthy dinner at home, right? This dinner Markle had in Greece looks like paleo perfection—minus a hint of feta, but it's vacation, after all! Depending on your destination, you may be able to eat as clean as you do at home as long as you order strategically.
Lemon Water Is Always a Good Idea
If you're feeling bloated by the end of your trip or hungover after a particularly fun night out, take a cue from Markle and hydrate with some lemon water at your next meal. (Curious about the health benefits of lemon water? From weight loss to pain relief, this citrus has you covered.)
It's Okay to Indulge
Though she drinks green juice all the time, Markle said "french fries and vino are my vices," in an interview with Delish
. While filming her show Suits in Toronto, she went for a heaping portion of veggies with a side of her favorite junk food.
Load Up On Fruits If You Can
If you're traveling somewhere that has awesome produce, take advantage of it! On a recent trip to Mexico, where fresh and delicious fruit is abundant, Markle snapped her artfully designed fruit plate. Fruits (and veggies) help lower your risk for everything from breast cancer to heart disease, so the more you can eat, the better.
