When traveling, it is easy to fall into the trap of unhealthy eating. Fast food is quick and easy, but it can become hazardous to your health. Try to pack along some healthy snacks when you are sightseeing. Sandwiches, fruit, crackers, nuts, string cheese, and granola bars are better alternatives to what you can generally find in a fast food restaurant. A bottle of water is a better choice than a soft drink.
