  • My daughter and I drove cross-country from NM to NY then less than 2 months later back again and a few later than that from NM to Idaho. We had a grand time; we really did! We had most of our meals at a Subway's where we could get the healthier fare. Their low-fat sandwiches were great for us and would last us two meals. I agree that the healthy snacks in the car are a must too, as well as making sure you drink enough. It was a super bonding experience between a 16-year-old and her Mom!
    Yes, water is good. Add a Crystal Light or similar to help motivate you to drink more. But the rest? Nuts & granola are too high in fat and calories. If you are on a diet, forget 'em. Many so called 'energy bars' are quite often not that different from a candy bar based on calorie/fat content. You really MUST to read the label on the bar. Many have as many calories and fat grams as a frozen meal! Keep them under 150 cal. As a an airline pilot, I have learned to eat on the go. For travel get bags of jerky, tuna & low fat cracker packs, pull top soups (still good even if room temp) sliced apples or baby carrots or lean lunch meats with some low fat string cheese (pack in zip locks with ice).
    This article has some very good points. I know when we travel we are always rushing. Next time we fly I will pack some healthy snacks in my carryon.
    I like the article. I think it is interesting to learn that being dehydrated caused fatigue!

  • PINKGRAPRFRUIT I think you missed the point.

    "If you do order a glass of wine or two, make sure to match every drink with an extra cup of water."

  • I liked the load up on things you know you will be short on - veggies and fruit. Good tip. I will always vote for red over white, but white is my second choice!!
    Drink a glass or wine or two!! Couln't be better. Which wine would be the best? Red or white?
  • Great eat a good meal night before..great tip..thankks!!
