Healthy & Fit Travel: Boozing Smart

Healthy & Fit Travel: Boozing Smart Tips Eating right and being active on vacation is essential for staying on track but I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the luxury of having a few drinks.  Isn’t it is usually the first thing that one associates with a vacation? That vision of toes in the sand and a drink in hand, right?  Staying on track and being healthy doesn’t mean having to sacrifice and be a party pooper- you just have to know how to booze smart. 

all-the-things-meme-generator-vacation-time-drink-all-the-beers-a8d511Obviously drinking copious amounts of alcohol is not recommended for your health or in terms of calorie consumption but if you want to enjoy a refreshing adult bevie or two (not ten) on the beach or by the pool there’s a way to booze without throwing all your hard work out the window.

Here are a few simple tips to keep your vacation libations in check: -4Since mixed drinks from the bar tend to be loaded with calories and sugar, I typically stick to wine when I am ordering.  I am not really a mixed drink person, but if I am going to enjoy one, I always make my own therefore I can control what goes into it and save myself a few bucks in the meantime.

There are also a few hacks I use to make them tasty without getting all crazy with ingredients.  Since discovering NUUN I have been using it to make flavored cocktails and if I need a beverage boost, Pure LYFT works wonders.

Here are some links to a few simple cocktail recipes I found to wet your whistle:
