Business trips are a fun and exciting shakeup to the daily office routine. Conferences The pace is usually stepped up, and the learning curve can be steep. There isn’t always a ton of free time during conferences, but you will always have time to grab a meal or some snacks, so make sure you choose your food carefully.
The following are five tips for eating healthier so you can gain more from your business trips and feel better in the process.
1. Make Your Meals
Some creative solutions might be necessary. Most rooms come equipped with a mini-fridge, so you can keep certain fresh foods refrigerated while you are out. You’ll also likely find a coffee pot — which you can boil water in — and a microwave.

If you’re too exhausted to cook dinner — or to figure out how it’s possible — snack-dinners are always a great option as well. Grab a bell pepper and some carrot sticks from the grocery store, along with hummus, or another healthy dip. Try to avoid fatty dips like French Onion or Ranch if possible.
2. Sample Local Cuisine
Many of your coworkers may not be as adventurous as you and may want to stick to their tried-and-tested restaurants and fast food joints.
Comfort foods packed with carbs and fat are the worst option for rising early the next day, especially when there are likely healthy and delicious local options. Don’t let your new business network pressure you into the same old places. If you come prepared with a few local restaurants and some diverse dining options, you may even get a couple of people from your group out of their shells. Plus, your body will thank you for the healthier food.

Nuts and dried fruit are both fantastic snacks to tide you through long conference days and between client/corporate meetings.

So many of us have built up a reliance on caffeine to start the day, taking several cups of coffee before we can function in the morning — but too much caffeine can result in a crash later.
Tea releases slower than other drinks and will give you a long-lasting buzz for the rest of the day, as well as a gentler let-down than traditional coffee.
5. Remember to Stay Hydrated
Dehydration is a killer during those long business trips. While finding water is not difficult in and of itself, remembering to take time off from networking and wooing potential clients is. Just remember, the human body is made up of nearly 60% water, so we need to consume water to ensure everything works as it should.
Bring your favorite reusable bottle with you, or buy a one-liter bottle and make sure to fill it a couple of times throughout the day. If you are snacking on salty foods, drink even more water to compensate. Without proper water consumption, you’ll feel sluggish and miserable, turning a fun trip into yet another chore.
Make Your Business Trip Great
Business trips are intended to be both fun and helpful. They lend you a perspective on your company and clients you might not otherwise have and let you network and make friends in the new and diverse locales.
