Before I read The Green Smoothie Diet and started drinking them every day, I didn't understand the importance of being regular. But now I do, it has become an issue for me when I travel.
Two obstacles stand in my way of being regular when I travel.
Diet and Location
When we go to England, we usually go for about two weeks. That's a long time to be without my smoothies. I try to eat as many fruits and vegetables as I can, but its never as many as I would eat if I were home.
Okay, I know this is too much information, but I first discovered probiotics because I was searching for a natural solution to female infections, and then realized they also help my intestinal tract. So that is a great option to take when traveling. The purple link above takes you to a help website where you can learn more.
Also I discovered when I went to Lake Powell this fall, that chocolate covered raisins will also do the trick. I can not stop eating them if there's a tub from Costco lying around, but I have decided they are worth the calories and need to be an essential item I pack for long trips.
Okay, now to solve the problem of location. Sometimes when I am staying in small quarters and everyone is feeling way too close to the bathroom, my body will not relax. Well, if I have Poo-Pourri in my toiletry bag, I am fine. Just spray the toilet water before you go and it cancels out any unwanted smells.
Hope these tips will help you feel your best on your next trip.
