Here are my ten top tips for holidaying away from home and trying to maintain healthy eating.

# 1 Choose your battles wisely. This is not the right time to convince your host of a better way of eating.
# 2 Practice grace.
# 3 Be the (silent) walking advertisement.
# 4 Take a probiotic such as InLiven. If you’re travelling overseas this is important. Having a gut ready for the inevitable exposure to less-than-optimum food and preparation practices is preventative action. This advice is not only for developing countries, either!
# 5 When travelling I also take Body Balance, a liquid supplement that will easily plug any nutritional gaps when I can’t be in control of my food. For overseas travel it is available as a powder.
# 6 Do an internet search for Juice Bars, health food shops and cafes. Do this before you leave home.
# 7 Take prunes, in case you are not served the fibre your body is accustomed to. You might be practising grace but you can’t send an email to your gut to advice it of impending change.
# 8 Take your own snacks and surreptitious nibbles. You can choose smaller portions at a meal table and know you won’t be hungry. Raw bars, nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit and vegetable snacks.
# 9 Drink water! This sounds like a Captain Obvious statement but with a change of routine it is easy to forget to drink as much as you usually do.
# 10 If the food you eat (or don’t eat) is going to cause a rift, then seriously consider staying in a motel/hotel and spend the day with your friends and family.

I wish you all a very happy, restful and memorable Christmas.

See you all next year!
