5 Tips for Healthy Living on the Road

Enjoying a motorhome hire holiday in Australia doesn’t mean
that your healthy lifestyle has to go straight out the window. The
advantage of travelling in a camper is that you have everything you need
with you to prepare and cook the country’s finest fresh produce and an
abundance of creative exercise activities in the great outdoors to get
your heart pumping. Here are our top 5 tips to make sure you maintain
your healthy lifestyle while you’re out enjoying the magnificent sights
and experiences that the Land Down Under has on offer.

Dine in more often than you dine out

Often
it may be tempting to grab a burger on the go so you can get to your
next destination half an hour earlier; we know fast food is the more
appealing option on long distance journeys. Instead of eating on the
run, turn your holiday meals into organic paddock to plate experiences.
Purchase fresh local produce from the nearest farm gate, stock up your
fridge with prime seafood and enjoy a dining experience in a destination
of your choice. Eat by the beach, set up camp in the centre of the
outback or simply choose a scenic spot by the side of the road. Having a
ready-to-go kitchen means that you have the advantage of maintaining
your healthy eating regime while simultaneously sampling Australia’s
finest produce.

Turn your daily exercise routine into an adventure

Just because you’re on holiday doesn’t mean
that you have to do away with your daily walk. Be creative and combine
your daily adventures with your exercise routine. Hike up a mountain,
kayak down a river or simply walk around the city. Australia is bursting
at the seams with adventure and outdoor activities to cater to all
fitness levels. Get out there and explore!

Choose healthy establishments when you eat out

We
know you’re on a long-awaited holiday and deserve to enjoy the finer
culinary pleasure in life! When you dine out choose a healthy
establishment with plenty of organic and nutritious options. Australia
is home to some of the finest restaurants on the globe with most able to
cater to specific dietary requirements. If you can’t find somewhere to
your liking, don’t worry about it. We all need to indulge from time to
time!

Take regular breaks on the road

Australia,
famous for its long coastal roads, is the ultimate road-trippers dream.
While on the road, stop and take regular breaks whether it is just for a
quick stretch or a cup of tea at your dining table. When you’re
travelling with someone else, take turns driving. If you’re feeling
tired but haven’t yet reached your destination, it may be worth
recalculating your travel plan and stopping somewhere closer overnight.
The advantage of hiring a motorhome gives you the freedom to be flexible
and adjust your travel plans to suit your needs.

Drink plenty of water

Staying
hydrated while you’re driving will help you feel more alert and
encourages you to stop for breaks. Keep some fresh water in the fridge
so it is easily accessible.
