(NaturalNews) The time from Thanksgiving to New Years is the most traveled month of the year. Even with the TSA nonsense at airports and increasing TSA presence at train stations, more people will continue the tradition of getting together with family members at some time during the holiday period.
Some of us have other concerns about travel in addition to TSA groping and high powered screening x-rays. For instance, the low quality, food-like substances available on the road or airports, train stations, bus depots, and even what our relatives may wind up serving us when we arrive.
After being on a wholesome organic diet for some time, eating foods with GMOs, pesticide residues, and toxic additives and sweeteners can easily produce a temporary, adverse health reaction.
Tips to maintain a healthy diet while traveling(1)
Pack an easy to consume portable super food. Chlorella in tablets is easy to store in luggage, carry-on or your glove compartment. Several tiny tablets, 10 to 20, can be taken at a time for a powerful combination of nutrition and detoxification.
You can take chlorella with meals or away from meals with water any time and as often as you want. It is a food that is so nutritionally dense, it was considered as a solution to world hunger during and just after WWII.
One reason that notion was dropped was they hadn't figured out how to break through the green single cell algae chlorella's cell walls making its nutrients accessible.
Now the technology for breaking open the cell walls by crushing is practiced by most chlorella
providers, making all of chlorella's nutrients and detox potential available. You can also choose tablets that are half chlorella and half spirulina, another green algae superfood that's nutritionally dense. Both are superfoods, but chlorella seems to have more detox powers.(2)
Neither super food
in section (1) will give you the satisfaction of having eaten much even as they offer a lot of nutrition. But your own put-together trail mix can help with that. Raw, organic cashews and other nuts mixed with some dried fruits will help you feel like you're eating
something of substance while you travel.(3)
Katie Bressack, in her mindbodygreen.com
article claims she gets through TSA security checks with a packed lunch for her plane trips by packing it in her carry-on. Make it simple and easy to recognize as food, like a sandwich, and don't include packets of sauces or salad dressings.
The more you can BYO (bring your own) food while traveling, the healthier you'll remain on your trips. You may try looking into a survival food company to carry a few survival food bars with you also. They are used for camping and emergencies.
The only caveat is making sure you check for MSG, aspartame and corn syrup. Here's how to spot the many MSG disguises. (http://www.truthinlabeling.org/hiddensources.html
Also, make sure the bars are free from GMOs. To help with that, order a free downloadable GMO avoidance guide from Jeffrey Smith's Institute for Responsible Technology.
Try to get a motel or hotel room with a kitchenette. If a health food store is not in the vicinity, you can use this little guide to "The Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen..." for picking the least sprayed, non-organic produce possible. (http://www.healthkicker.com
Scout and plan ahead via the internet to determine where there might be health food stores or restaurants at your destination. Let your relatives know what type of foods you're used to and help direct them to the right choices.
