We all are concerned about our health while eating out or traveling. We tend to have junk or unhealthy food while we are not at home. We usually relate pleasure with junk food while eating out or traveling, but we would like you to know that while you eat out and travel, you can also enjoy healthy foods. You can get the same pleasure you are seeking in junk food.

Healthy travels start with healthy choices: Learn how to avoid junk food and incorporate nutritious options on the go.

For short travel/eat-outs, it is suggested to have a fibrous meal before you leave. This will ensure you don’t overeat outside. Here are some quick and healthy food options that you can carry along:


  • Any seasonal fruit or vegetable salad sticks
  • Baked beetroot slices
  • Baked sweet potato slices
  • Boiled legumes
  • Sprouts salad

Sweet and healthy

  • Besan or moong dal ladoo
  • Ragi Ladoo
  • Coconut ladoo
  • Makhana ladoo
  • Oats balls
  • Nuts or dry fruit laddoo

For longer travel durations, you may not want to carry foods that will spoil after a while. Any kind of salad or foods which have fresh contents like fruit cannot be carried along. Here we have some food options that have a longer shelf life and will accompany you during your long travels:

Nuts and crisps

  • Cashews
  • Pistachios
  • Almonds
  • Homemade cookies
  • Aloo papad
  • Raw banana crisps
  • Sweet potato wedges

Quick and Dry snacks

  • Roasted makhane
  • Channe
  • Peanuts
  • Chidwa
  • Coconut slice
  • Popcorns
  • Murmura (bhel- puffed rice)

While you follow these tips and carry these foods along on your outing or travel, you should not forget to enjoy them.

A renowned dietitian in India suggests while eating outside, do not overeat; relish various cuisines, and keep your taste buds happy but keep in mind that ‘moderation’ is the key, always.
