Quick Vacation Tip: Eat locally

When you’re traveling it’s easy to get out of  the habits you work hard to incorporate in your daily life – like exercising, eating right and your earth-friendly habits that are so routine when at home – can become challenging when vacationing.

This may seem obvious, but eat locally while you’re exploring new lands. Besides experiencing the new culture, you’ll reduce strain on the eco-system from shipping foods from afar. Besides, you’ll try more exotic cuisines this way!

  1. I totally agree. We have traveled for many years with our family of 6. We always find some regional fare and order it everywhere we go. For example, we traveled the Eastern Seaboard and decided to try every Clam Chowder we could find. It was fun and gave us an instant response to “are you ready to order”.

    I think that eating can be educational as well as cultural.
