    Default Working away from home - eating healthily

    How do you lot eat healthily when away from home?

    I'm in a BandB so no option to prepare my own food. I know that the way to go is to have my main meal at lunch time then have a pot noodle or a salad at night.

    I just can't do that - I have to go to beddy byes on a full tum!

    So far this week I've had scampi in the basket, Chinese, Indian and tonight I'm headed up the fish and chippery. Not exactly healthy.

    te there any healthier dining out options? Cmon I need some inspiration.

    Local Waitrose? I've put together some delicious meals from stuff you dont have to cook, from Waitrose. M&S would work too.

    You're bringing stinky takeaway food back to the B&B to eat out of the boxes in your bedroom?

    Classy.

    Some B&Bs have kitchen areas with microwave, sink etc. I stayed in one a couple of weeks back.

    I always travel, if driving, with a little camp stove and one pot. It's amazing what you can cook, even in hotel rooms with just that.

    Shouldn't be going to bed with a full stomach. The french don't tend to eat much in the evening, and most defintely no carbs.

    In London, there's a healthy food chain where you can buy hi protein and veg meals, with low or no carbs. It's what I tend to do up there. Brekkies always a boiled/poached egg of sorts. Again, easily done in a kettle.

    Weatherspoons do low fat & veggie meals with a pint.

    Most of the supermarkets do premade salads & veg.

    Get a thermos and cook at clients then take home.

    If you have a Kettle Cous Cous is dead easy. Chop some tomatoes etc and nice hot grub.

    B&B owner open to you using their microwave, they probably prefer you to eat outside your room.

    Made any friends at work, invite yourself round to theirs and take food.
