Guest Blog: Don’t Break Your Healthy Eating on Vacation!


Guest blogger: Cole Millen

I have been contacted by Cole Millen, an avid traveler and foodie. Here is a post he wanted to share with us. Thank you Cole for considering my blog.

Don’t Break Your Healthy Eating on Vacation!

Just because you are taking a break and going on vacation does not mean you should take a break from eating healthy. While it can be easy to reach for fast food or high fat snacks, a little planning and savvy thinking can help you to make the right choices when you are on the go!

Nutrition

At the airport:

Airports are full of unhealthy foods but if you look around you can find places with fresh fruit, water, and salads. In fact, use your downtime to walk around your terminal and get a little exercise. Use the stairs instead of the escalators! Get your blood pumping before you are stuck in an airplane for a few hours.

Most importantly, make sure to bring along some healthy snacks of your own that will curb your appetite and keep you from grabbing one of those high in sugar and fat items. These snacks can be dried fruits, vegetables, or even nuts!

At the hotel:

One of the most important parts of your vacation is finding the right hotel. After all, you are living there for the time being. It is important to make sure that your hotel offers the appropriate amenities and services that can accommodate to your healthy lifestyle. I have had trouble with this in the past but found that doing a little research beforehand can go a long way. On my most recent trip out west I found a great site that listed reviews for hotels in Las Vegas regarding not only their amenities and services, but also on the restaurants in the surrounding areas. This made it easier than ever to plan out my trip and to eat right while in and out of the hotel. Healthy_Eating (1)

Stop by a grocery store before you get to the hotel to grab some healthy foods. Almonds, fruit, yogurt, and hard-boiled eggs are great for giving you an energy boost before you venture out for the day. Pack a few portioned out snacks and bottles of water in your bag when you head out so you aren’t left hungry and reaching for fried foods or sugary snacks. Also, ask your hotel to not stock the mini bar or to not give you a room service menu. They are there to accommodate you, so let them! Even better, look for places and hotels with a healthy edge before you go. Plenty of hotels now offer gyms, yoga studios, and healthy menus for their guests! Treat your vacation as a mini-spa getaway!

At the restaurant:

Speak up when choosing a place to eat with your group. Try to find a place that has healthier options and scope out their online menu before you go. When in doubt, choose lean protein with veggies for a side. Avoid carbohydrate-rich (and calorie laden) entrees and ask for your dish without heavy sauces or oils. If you’re totally lost, look for entrees that have lots of vibrant colors. Usually foods that are bland colors (whites, tans, browns) are the ones with the most.

calories and fat. Also, be weary of tempting restaurant salads. They can sometimes pack in as many as 1500 calories!

Above all, try to drink lots of water when you travel. Flying and restaurant foods are very dehydrating and can leave you zapped of energy. Also, try popping a multi-vitamin and fitting in a little exercise when you can. It may be tempting to let go of your diet when you travel, but it will likely leave you feeling sluggish and disappointed with yourself. Eating healthy and taking care of your body should be an all time habit, not just when it’s easy.

Having a Baby… Juice Juice Juice


It has been such a long time since I last posted on the blog.

I gave birth to a healthy handsome baby boy. Throughout my pregnancy I juiced every single day. Green juice, apple juice, carrot juice, and different combinations of juice all ran through my veins and replenished my system and that of my baby. He was born and could hold his head up and I still do believe that his strength is directly related to the juices I have been consuming. I focused on fetal development and requirements and juiced ingredients that would help boost my health and that of my growing baby in me.

My Baby Boy

I want to share some juice recipes that would help those who are planning to get pregnant, and those who are already going through their journey at being pregnant.

To Those Who are Trying to Get Pregnant

First thing I want to share with you is a detox. It took me a while to get pregnant and I read somewhere that a cleanse can help reboot my system. I did a four day juice fast (read my blog post about it here). A month after the cleanse and healthy eating I got pregnant. All you got to do is try to eliminate sugars in your diet. Eat healthy food and if you have the will to go vegan for a few weeks then go ahead and do that. As for me all I did is I went on a juice fast for 4 days. I eliminated caffeine from my system and all sugars. I ate a lot of greens. I exercised daily and drank lots of water and fluid.

Here are a few juice recipes that help with fertility.

Natural Fertility

This juice has a ton of vitamins and minerals. It is high in iron, calcium and is alkalizing. Drink this blend to nourish the reproductive system and enrich your cells, boosting your fertility and chances of getting pregnant (Natural Fertility Info).

5 Fertility RecipesTo Those who are Pregnant

During the first trimester, the embryo becomes a fetus with all organs fully formed. Taking these dramatic changes and developments in your womb many things are also happening to your body to be able to accommodate the needs of the baby. One of the well known physical side effects is nausea. Here are a few juice recipes to help you through the first trimester.

During the second trimester you are most energetic and happily pregnant. Now that all the major organs and systems have formed in the fetus, the following six months will be spent growing. This means that you require a lot of vitamins and nutrients to help the growing fetus in you. I drank a lot of grapefruit and green juice during that time. Here are a few recipes:

In the third trimester heartburn kicks in. More growth happening to the fetus and lungs are developing and maturing. I started to feel heavy and easily tired during the last few weeks. To keep your energy up and to help you through what is to become of your life try these healthy recipes.

Juice Recipes to Lower High Blood Pressure


After having covered general juice recipes such as: Green Juice Recipes, Jay Kordich – Juice Recipes, Detox Juice Recipes, Juice Recipes for Ailments, and Juice Recipes for Pregnancy, I think it is time to start posting juice recipes for specific ailments.

Here are some juice recipes that may help you combat high blood pressure

Celery is one of the most important vegetables we have to use daily. Celery provides a natural way to lower blood pressure. Drink celery juice as much as you can… If you cannot tolerate its bitter taste mix it with a bit of orange juice (which would also give you a vitamin C kick.) Read more here.

Beat High Blood Pressure with Beet. A recent research study discovered that drinking just 500 ml of beetroot juice a day can significantly reduce blood pressure. Read more here.

Lemon juice with water is such a refreshing and quenching drink, especially in the hot summer days. Adding Lemon juice to your water will help alkalize your system and is also shown to lower blood pressure… even if it does nothing, why not change the taste of your water from time to time 🙂

Juice 1/4 cantaloupe and blend in a banana and enjoy the yummy effect… both ingredients have potassium which will help reduce high blood pressure.

Green juice is mainly beneficial to all ailments and will definitely improve your overall health and stamina.
All of these vegetable juices make the blood more alkaline and can help remove cholesterol deposits on arteries that lead to the heart. Read more here.

Last but not least, the quatro super juice ingredients Kale, Celery, Carrot and Beet. Juice the ultimate ingredients and you’ll not only combat blood pressure but you’ll conquer all aliments and regain your full health and vigor.

Juice Recipes for Pregnancy


The importance of juicing has been highlighted many times in my previous posts; Green Juice Recipes, Jay Kordich – Juice Recipes, Detox Juice Recipes and Juice Recipes for Aliments.

Juicing for pregnant women is even more important. The instant rush of nutrients in your system will help you and your baby stay nourished and feeling clean…

Here are a few juice recipes I personally am trying through my journey in pregnancy and are really doing wonders to my overall health.

Pregnant women require a lot of vitamins and nutrients to support their growing baby… this juice recipe contains a plethora of nutritious elements… Oranges are well known for their high concentration of vitamin C, but the citrus fruit also contains many other vitamins and nutrients. Oranges also contain vitamin A, many of the B vitamins, and vitamin E, making them a regular part of a healthy and balanced diet (read more). Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Spinach and Asparagus are extremely rich in antioxidants and are also a good source of vitamin A and C as well as being rich in folate and fiber.

Most pregnant women suffer from nausea and vomiting throughout their first trimester… try the apple, celery and a bit of ginger juice and you’ll automatically feel better.

One extra annoyance during pregnancy is constipation. The release of pregnancy hormones relax the bowel and alter the digestive system while prenatal vitamins further contribute to constipation and bloating. Try the two recipes above. My personal recommendation is to eat a big bowl or two of salad daily… it will help you overcome this bloated feeling and keep you regulated throughout your pregnancy.

Folates are crucial for pregnancy especially in the beginning. I had this juice when I was in my first few weeks of pregnancy. I blended a banana with the juice mixture and it turned out to be an excellent recipe.

Bottom line… pregnant or not, you can utilize the above recipes to improve your vitamin intake and overall nutritional health.
