HOUSTON (KTRK) --Here's some tips to eating healthy while on the road.
1. Eat every 2 to 3 hours: A handful of nuts or dried fruit. This avoids a so-hungry-you-ate-a-gas-station-hot-dog situation.
2. Read the airline menu: Many airlines offer protein boxes with hummus, olives, and whole-grain crackers, which provide a balance of protein, fat, and complex carbs.
3. One and done: You're allowed to cheat on your diet while on the road. Pick one high-calorie item a day, like ice cream from that local creamery for dessert.
4. Drink water: Carry a bottled water with you at all times. Try and drink about 7 ounces of water every hour.
