One of the biggest challenges we hear about is not just eating healthy on the road, but actually eating healthy at home. It is actually easier for some travelers to eat healthy on the road because the food is prepared for you. At home, frequent travelers face the challenge of stocking a kitchen, planning meals and preparing food.
Committing to a healthy lifestyle can be difficult, especially for travelers. Add in the array of new fad diets and food crazes, and it can be hard to keep up with what to do to keep your life on a healthy track. I recently had the opportunity to read and review Marisa Vicario’s new book, Your Holistically Hot Transformation, in which she answers all these questions, simply, with the answer; listen to your body and eat whole.
In Your Holistically Hot Transformation, Marissa Vicario, who is a board-certified Integrative Health and Nutrition Coach, outlines ways to transform your eating habits and your life, and stick to them. For business travelers, this means tips and tricks for staying healthy at home and on the road. Many travelers can stick to a healthy diet when on the road, but consider their time at home with friends and family a time to splurge. Marissa explains that while health is a lifestyle and a commitment, that doesn’t mean you can’t splurge a little. If you eat healthy and whole most of the time and you’ve been craving an ice cream cone – get it! Don’t deny yourself, but try your hardest to eat whole foods as much as you can.
For the business traveler who is a strict eater on business trips, but a splurger at home, this book can teach you how to keep up the healthy habits on the road and at home, but still enjoy meals with your family and friends when you get back.
This is a great read for nutrition and health novices because the essentials are broken down in a way that is easy to understand. Your Holistically Hot Transformation includes recipes and a grocery list of food for each food group that should be present on your plate. Whether your looking to learn about nutrition and a healthy lifestyle or looking for tips on how to maintain your already healthy lifestyle, Your Holistically Hot Transformation can benefit you.
