Staying Fit on the Road: Healthy Meals You Can Make in Your Hotel Room


Travelling can be incredibly exciting, but staying healthy and fit on the road can be difficult whether on a business trip, vacation, or just exploring the country. Several hotel rooms don’t provide access to a full kitchen, so it can be challenging to find healthy meal options. But you can make nutritious and delicious meals in your hotel room using simple ingredients.

Overnight Oats

Start your day off right with a healthy breakfast. Grab a few items from the store and make a nutritious breakfast instead of grabbing a pastry from the hotel lobby. Oatmeal is a great way to have a protein-filled breakfast. Mix oats, almond milk, chia seeds, and your favourite fruits, nuts, and spices in a jar the night before and leave in the refrigerator. You can top your oatmeal with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of cinnamon or honey.

Fruit and Nut Butter

Want a quick snack or light meal? Try pairing apples, bananas, or berries with nut butter such as peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter. This combination is high in protein and healthy fats keeping you satisfied until your next meal.

Mixed Vegetable Salad

Salads are a great way to incorporate a variety of vegetables and fruits into your diet. Chop some vegetables such as carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes and mix them together in a bowl. Add spinach or lettuce, chickpeas or boiled eggs, and a dressing made of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. This nutritious and filling salad can be enjoyed as a meal or a side dish.

Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Skewers 

Make delicious grilled chicken and vegetable skewers in your hotel room with access to a small electric grill or a pan. Marinate some chicken breast pieces in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and spices such as paprika, cumin, and chilli powder. Thread the chicken and your choice of chopped vegetables such as bell peppers, onions, and zucchini on skewers and grill until the chicken gets cooked and the vegetables are tender.

Egg and Vegetable Muffins

Make delicious and healthy egg and vegetable muffins in your hotel room by requesting access to a microwave. Whisk together eggs, vegetables such as spinach, peppers, and onions, and your choice of seasonings such as salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a microwave-safe container. 

Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the eggs get cooked. These muffins are a great breakfast or snack option and can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for later.
