TIPS FOR EATING HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELLING 🍓👍🏼 I talk about this a lot lately because it’s so highly requested by you gals AND because I love sharing my tips + tricks for healthy eating while travelling 👇🏼 • before you go, research healthy restaurants, smoothie shops or organic grocers - google is your friend! But @instagram
are also great resources. This is my #1
• I love sneaking in açai bowls, green juices and smoothies wherever we go to feel super fresh
• pack your basics: we always pack a jar of almond butter, some kind of rice cracker/GF bread/etc., bananas, oats, nuts and seeds mix and dark choc to help satisfy those snack cravings
• I bring my own herbal teas to help with digestion after meals on-the-go
• avoid packaged foods as much as you possibly can
• whether we’re camping, staying with friends or airbnb-ing for the night, we like to make our own meals at home for the most part, so we always stock up at a local grocery store to whip up veggie stir fry, veggie GF pasta, or a quick omelette
That’s all for now babes! I’ve got a few blog posts on this as well in case you’re interested 😘✌🏼 #thepurelifetakesnz #travelhealthy #holisticnutrition
I had in my head that I had to be skinny. Praise the Lord it never got to the point that I had a true eating disorder; but it was going a bit too far.
When you set out to be HEALTHY & then it becomes an obsession with SKINNY.
Thank the Lord I had the influences I did in my life at just the right time.
•My mom as a healthy role model.
•All my professors at HSU in the exercise science department.
•And friends that loved me through it all.
Looking back I’m thankful I went through it because it made me who I am today. But remember - it’s a HEALTH journey not a SKINNY journey.
Who cares if you’re skinny if you don’t have the health to have a great quality of life?!
You’ve made the perfect, most healthy salad. Loaded it with delicious toppings that are sure to give you a nutrition boost! You open the fridge and ponder over which salad dressing to dress your salad with, only to realize all your dressings are calorie loaded! 😱⠀
Here are a few topics of interest to consider when it comes to salad dressings:⠀
1) Calories: one serving of dressing can easily pack in 200+ calories. I recommend maximum of 120 calories per salad dressing use, and less if possible! If your favorite is calorically dense, try mixing in vinegar or water to dilute it. Be sure to pay attention to the portion size - a 2 Tbsp serving is really not that big! ⠀
2) Unknown ingredients: preservatives, thickening agents, coloring, etc. Opt for dressings with a shorter list of ingredients. ⠀
3) Sodium: added for flavoring and a preservative. Try for 150 mg or less if possible per serving! ⠀
4) Organic vs. conventional: organic can still pack on a significant amount of calories and sodium. Just because it’s labeled organic does not necessarily make it healthier than its counterparts. ⠀
These are just my personal recs and what works best for me! ⠀
If you want to make your own, oil and vinegar with salt and pepper to taste is a great option! I like a 1:1 ratio of oil to vinegar, and that can easily be changed pending on your preference. ⠀
Dining out? Ask for your dressing on the side to control the amount on your salad. More often than not, restaurants will LOAD your salad up with more dressing than you need! 2 tbsp is a typical salad dressing serving, which is honestly not that big - thats also how it’s so easy to overdue it on the dressings. Ranch, honey mustard, Caesar and thousand island are some of the biggest offenders to name a few, all extremely high in calories, saturated fats, sodium etc. Opt for more vinaigrette’s and less cream based dressings. Idk about you but I’d rather eat my calories with whole Foods instead of letting my salad swim in dressing. ❤️
i often get asked how i wake up every morning loving myself and all happy.
i often get judged for surviving off fruit. they say “you’re haley not everyone can eat like you” as if im some type of alien.
people often assume i come from money because i travel.
guys, it takes two minutes to read through my old posts to realize that my life wasn’t shit just a few years ago.
that is why i find it conflicting when people come too me seeking the remedy to self love as if i have it. i surrendered into this lifestyle only once i chose to give into that fiery pull in my chest that told me i deserved better and that i deserve a life of unlimited happy mornings.
i deserve a life where i am present for every moment.
i deserve to receive love from myself and others.
my reason for posting to begin with is to inspire you to stop playing games with yourself and to fucking go after that pull in your chest. ive lived that lifestyle where limitations existed and eating shitty was of excuse. and i was miserable, i tried convincing myself i was happy when i was subconsciously settling.
i don’t have to be traveling to be “moving forward” the moment i moved the furthest was when i honored what my intuition was begging me to go after.
when’re you finally going to go after what your mind can’t stop thinking about? hold onto those people that make your heart feel swollen and follow the energy that makes every hair on your body stand up.
i can’t give you the remedy to self love- i can only guide you into surrendering into that pull. surrendering into what your heart can’t resist. selfishly surrendering into being yourself without fear or guilt- because only then you will embody the greatest love you’ll ever know.
Stocking up on vitamin D ☀️
It’s pretty easy to eat healthy/healthyish when you travel. I’m usually pretty good about packing my own chia pudding or veggie wraps for long plane rides home. But when I’m lazy or things get too crazy I love stopping by @napafarmsmarket
in SFO! They have all the heathy snacks you need to get you through your travels. I also love that the majority of the products they carry are local to SF. I was able to grab my favorite SF @equatorcoffees
coffee and some @mushfoods
overnight oats. What healthy snacks do you like to pack when you travel?
Do you take your #naturaltoolbox
on the road with you? This is my little #keychain
filled with #essentialoils
, because when you #travel
, you need to keep your immunity boosted, germs at bay, calm, alert, refreshed and so on. Don’t leave home without your oils! And if you don’t have any yet, by golly, let’s get you your own #naturalhealth
arsenal to keep you healthy this fall and winter! (Swipe to see what oils I keep on hand) 🍃☺️🍂🌼
Amazing testimony about Digestzen from @oilsinmybackpack
Swipe to see benefits. ➡️➡️➡️. “My daughter just came back from trekking in the Himalayas. She had the most wonderful time, and she came back with a fabulous oil experience !
On the trek with her was a German doctor. He had come prepared with a good supply of pharmaceuticals to keep him healthy while in Nepal. .
During the 10 day hike, he found himself a bit stuck 🙁 💩💩 My daughter said " I have an oil for that 😂😂" He wasn't interested 🙄 However, after 2 days, he realized his 'stuff' wasn't helping and took the offer. She put a few drops of DIGESTZEN in his hand and told him to rub it on his belly. Then she offered him a couple of drops in his water too.
My daughter said that literally in 5 minutes he was running off to the toilet 😲😲💩💩💩💩 and came back amazed at what had happened. AND....this happened twice on the trek! 😂😂😂 .
Digestzen, if you don't know, is brilliant for any stomach upsets. Its a must have oil if you are travelling to countries where you may possibly encounter contaminated food or water, or if you happen to become a bit 'stuck' 😂
If you would like to know more about oils for travelling, message me now!”

“Being in love with travel and having a chronic illness makes me feel like my body can’t keep up with my soul.” - @buenqamino
A fellow traveler with chronic illness commented this on my post yesterday and it spoke to me so deeply. Thank you all for your responses to my new hashtag community #wellandwidely
- I hope this is the beginning of a new movement where we can share not only how to travel well but how to feel well while doing it.
As for me, I’m working on my ‘journey to a diagnosis’ blog post which will be published TOMORROW. It is a long one that will require multiple cups of tea and/or coffee. I am trying to shorten it but I don’t want to minimise the experience. What do you think? ☕️❤️
PS - this photo was taken on my first big post op trip to Florida last week :)
Here I am with my guy, a few weeks ago in Paris. On our first day in the city, we headed straight to the local markets. 🍎 🥑Why? It's a fun way to explore a destination and a great way to make sure you have plenty of healthy and fresh foods to nosh on. 🤩
It would have been so easy to simply order room service or go from cafe to cafe day every day. But I really see the value in being prepared! 🎉 I have to say, though, that I could have spent DAYS exploring the local markets and grocery stores (I love to see what's different and interesting. For one, I tried some amazing local grapes 🍇and figs! But @rydinare
dragged me away (and rightly so, after all we were in Paris!) to do some real sight seeing.
Do you explore the local markets when you travel?
What's the healthy habit you always follow through with time and time again? ❤️

Back in gym after week off! Why do I ache so much it’s was only a week lol..
Do you LOVE chicken salad but dislike the mayo taste and extra mayo cals 🙅♀️? Then this recipe is for YOU! Swap plain Greek yogurt for the mayo for a nice nutritional boost and calorie saver. 👏🏻⠀
Recipe: 1 cup diced or shredded chicken (can use canned or make your own), 10 grapes halved, 3 tbsp chopped celery, 3 tbsp craisins, 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, salt + pepper to taste. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. That’s it! 🍇🥑🍗⠀
Use on top of salad greens, whole wheat crackers, apple slices, stuff inside pitas or avocados, use as a dip for veggie slices, etc. 💚⠀

This month, especially approaching holiday food season, we’re looking for all the healthy sugar alternatives. Coconut Sugar, and Raw Coconut Nectar are a great, natural replacement.
Happy MONDAY! 💃🏼 Feeling so ready & refreshed to take on the week 🥊 after a weekend of fun! I was PLEASANTLY surprised with how much I loved Vegas this weekend. Here are my top five recs if you’re making a trip soon 🙃🎊:
- go straight from the airport or on your way to the airport for a little something to brining you back to life, it’s AMAZE 🤤
- all my 90s babies will feel me here🕺🏼Show was INCREDIBLE! 💫 @theneonmuseumlasvegas
- otherwise known as the sign graveyard! So fun to see all of this history of LV! 📸
fountain show, their art installation & there is a @juicepress
in this hotel that you can get all the 🥗veggies, nutrients, etc. that you need replenished!
- didn’t get to make it here sadly, but def on my list for next time!
My other tips are of course to stay hydrated, check out your hotel spa (if you’re in a budget like me 🤑, you may be able to just pay a small admission fee to use the common facilities), walk 🏃🏼♀️more than not to get your steps in and consider waking up to do a short 🤸🏼♀️workout to start your day. Even if you’re not feeling the best it will make you feel better, promise!
When one of your dearest friends who lives in Toronto calls you and says “come meet me in Las Vegas” you GO! ✈️
It’s always a totally bittersweet feeling as I leave my family. SO excited to have this luxury time but so GUILTY because #momguilt
It’s just a short getaway but I’m super excited for good food, @magicmikelive
and of course the blackout blinds that allow you to sleep forevaaaaaa in those dark hotel rooms @mgmgrand
Oh and if you’re wondering YES i packed my workout stuff because well I pack my toothbrush and exercise is equally as important as all the other personal hygiene and self care routines I do daily. .
Drop your #lasvegas
suggestions for me 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼?
Happy Sunday friends! Today on the blog I’m sharing some tips on how to stay active while traveling ✈️ Our trip to Chile was a little different than trips I’ve been on in the past. None of the hotels had gyms and it wasn’t possible to run everyday either because of where we were staying. This allowed me to get a little more creative with my workouts. I also didn’t want to spend an hour everyday working out. I really wanted to focus on waking up and doing something quick to move my body before heading off to brunch! 🏃🏻♀️ Head to my blog for the full post now— link is in my profile 👆🏻 Happy Sunday! ✨ #becksliveshealthy
I’m about to head off to Brazil for an extended work trip (yippee) and I’m not too sure what I’m getting into with the long travel days and different culture, so I’m stocked up on some healthy travel-ready items! (I swear my bag is half food and I barely have room for clothes...I guess that is telling about my priorities! 😂)
Do you struggle to eat healthy while traveling? What are some of your go-to travel foods?
We should have been packing this weekend, but....⠀
instead we drove up to our happy place — Newport, RI — to spend a little quality time together relaxing before the craziness of the next two weeks commences. (In case you missed it, we’re moving to Florida right after Thanksgiving!)⠀
To-do lists always get done one way or another. However, what we always seem to put off is self-care and being present with those we love — spouses, friends, family, and partners. ⠀
How can you be a little more present today? xx ⠀
JAPANESE ENCEPHALITIS IN BALI
The Indonesian Ministry of Health has, this week, alerted the public (including tourists) of a recent outbreak of Japanese Encephalitis in both Bali and Sulawesi (Manado). Limited details are available, and we await more information to be released by the Indonesian Ministry of Health. In the meantime, news sources (including social media) will seize on this outbreak.
It is therefore important for travellers to understand real risk rather than “risk” portrayed by the media.

Healthy Traveling Tips 🦋
As some of you may already know, I spent this weekend in Warsaw. It is a new experience for me since I’ve never been to Warsaw before (except for passing through). I came to Warsaw for a concert and to spend some time with my friend 🎉! And of course, I couldn’t forget about making my stay a healthy one. I believe in sticking to your goals no matter what the circumstances are. So, here’s what to do to make sure your holiday doesn’t set you back on your health goals:
1. Food! 🥐🍔🍕🥗🥞🍳 While I think it’s great to try new dishes, I think moderation is key. If you really have your mind set on that one dish (and you know, most of the time it’s not the healthiest choice 🍩), try it! Just don’t make the whole time you’re traveling a “cheat” period. You can balance it out by eating healthier at other meals. For example, you had a nice sweet breakfast at Ladurée. Don’t sweat it! Have something healthier and lighter for the other meals of the day.
2. Drinks. I think the best drink to travel with is water 💧. Keeps you hydrated at all times. Take a water bottle everywhere you go. Of course you can try other drinks, but again, the key to success is moderation. Carefully read the ingredient list. And remember the drinks you order ☕️ aren’t a substitute for water.
3. Exercise 💪🏼. Depends on how long your stay is and what you plan on doing there can be a couple options. If it’s a short trip you’ll probably do just fine with waking around the city. But if you’re staying for longer you can try a fun street workout, gym workout (if possible) 🏋🏽♀️ or even do one in your hotel room (try @blogilates
4. Sleep. Don’t forget that 😉.
Have a good trip!
⠀- 🤗’s, Alisa
