As you arrive at your destination you begin looking around and gathering information about all of the excursions and adventures you can pack into your trip but don’t forget breakfast!
More than likely you have witnessed, been, or heard of that person who spent all of their time and effort traveling just to get sick and miss 3 days or more. Before you begin it is important to help your body get acclimated; Breakfast helps with that, so you can start every day with energy and most importantly avoid becoming sick.
Here are a couple tips and tricks to getting the most out of your trip:
Wash your hands often.
This really goes without saying but it is worth repeating. When you are out and about bring hand sanitizer especially if you are uncertain of the water. Being cautious is better than being sick.
Be careful of fruit shakes or drinks made with unpurified water.
Although it may look clean and delicious these drinks are some of the first reasons people get sick. Take a moment to observe the cleanliness of your surroundings and determine for yourself. If you are at your home resort you will be fine. A delicious fruit shake is a great breakfast option on vacation! Logic dictates that at the resorts you are in the clear but be wary when out and about in the street.
Unpeeled fruit is your friend.
If you are running late unpeeled fruit is a great way to eat on the go and most importantly introduce your body to local bacteria without causing too much trouble.
Eat the local yogurt
Yogurt has several health benefits besides just being delicious. Some people carry probiotics or acidophilus pills to help adjust to new and exotic locations. Yogurt provides the same benefits but without spending an arm and a leg at your local pharmacy. Local yogurt is the best way to introduce your body to benign levels of local bacteria and helps your body to become acclimated to its new surroundings. Acidophilus pills help to protect you by creating a hostile environment for undesirable organisms your morning yogurt will do the same. Why not make local yogurt a staple in your vacation breakfast?
