Eating healthily on holiday with diabetes

Healthy Living

When you go on holiday it’s usually an excuse for a well-deserved break, and you don’t really worry about what you’re eating because you're on vacation. When I travel, I head away for months at a time, which means I need to be careful about maintaining a healthy lifestyle along with healthy blood sugars. But with cheap street food and fast food readily available on a budget, how do you eat healthy with long-term travel? Here are my top tips.

1) Cook your own meals

I’m sitting here in Tropical Mauritius in 90-degree heat and sweating like it’s nobody’s business.  We decided to head here for a short mini break to visit friends. When I imagined myself here I thought of romantic balmy nights and long swims on a deserted beach.  So far it’s almost perfect. I say almost because of the two friends I take with me everywhere I go.

A Fresh Start

I can’t believe it! We’ve made it through another year. By all accounts, 2016 wasn’t the best of times but in my opinion, it wasn’t the worst of times either. If any one of us looks back, we can find things to be grateful for. I think this is especially true for those of us living with diabetes. For me, 2016 was all about stepping out more into the DOC (diabetes online community) and exposing to my friends and family, more of what it's like to live day in and out with diabetes which includes blogging for you here at Diabetes Sisters over the next 6 months.
