How to Stay Healthy at Disney!
As many of you know I help people change their nutritional habits to live active vibrant lives. When feeding my own family and staying active traveling I’ve had to learn a lot of tricks along the way. My family and I were recently blessed by taking our first trip together to Disney. It was a very exciting experience for our 3 young kids and we were able to stay healthy and enjoy the magic of the parks without feeling fatigued from stress, bad foods and long days of walking.
How did we do it?
I can tell you from experience that we are an active family and love to take road trips, camp and go see interesting places. We never worry about the food choices that will be ahead of us because the simple reality is that there are easy and simple things you can choose in convenience stores, local restaurants and EVEN during a family vacation to Disney!!
At Disney we allowed time to sit down for lunches, buffets and dinners and found grapes, apples and carrots that we could bring into the park for snacks as well as sweet potato chips with chia and flax seeds for a nice crunch. We carried our Klean Canteen’s (full of lemon water) with us and remembered to allow breaks for our 5 year old. At the buffets there were always beautiful choices of green salads, green beans, sweet potatoes and protein choices galore. The tough picks for us came when we wanted to “splurge”. There were so many unhealthy choices to pick from we had to narrow it down! Once a day we would have a small dessert, an ice cream cone or a special lemonade to savor the kids sweet tooth and timed it around 2 pm intentionally to boost our energy for the next hour or so before we headed back to the hotel to swim off the rest!
