Staying healthy when you go RVing

Just because you're on vacation does not mean you should overindulge in unhealthy foods and forget about fitness altogether. While you are more than welcome to kick back and relax on the road, you should also try to keep up with exercise and try to eat some healthy meals

Find ways to work out

When you spend hours on end driving to RV destinations, it is especially important to stretch your legs and get your blood flowing. If you see a park en route to your campsite and you've got some extra time, pull over and go for a walk. You can also include natural attractions such as state parks in your itinerary. Pick a few trails to hike that suit your level of skill and endurance. You can also bring bicycles along for the trip. Use them to ride to town from RV campgrounds instead of driving. This will not only help you stay active but it will save you from wasting gas.

Buy fruits and veggies from local farmers

When you're driving across the country. you're bound to encounter the occasional farmer's market or even a roadside stand. Stop and grab some fresh food for your dinner and snacks. You can throw kebabs and corn on the cob right on the grill for a tasty dinner treat. Freshly picked vegetables always taste better than processed foods like french fries and chips. If you are so inclined, you can pick up some fruit and bake a pie for a sweet treat. Apples, pears, peaches and cherries make excellent snacks to bring along on your nature walks too.

Making an effort to stay healthy on your next trip will not only help you feel better, but it can make a vacation even more fun and tasty. Plus, you won't have to worry about coming home to a closet of clothes that no longer fit if you took it a bit too easy on your vacation. Actually, if you're more active on the road than you were before you left, you might wind up losing a few pounds.
