In the past year and a half, Taco has done some serious worldwide travels for work. Episode 7 of the Nutrition Nuptials Podcast discusses where in the world Taco has been, how to stay healthy while traveling for business, and what the other person may be doing back at home for meals while their significant other is traveling.
Nutrition Nuptials promotes heart health through nutrition and fitness. Sometimes we need a little extra help with getting our nutrients. Dietitian Mandy is partnering up with CardioTabs to help share their line of heart healthy products. A few of Mandy’s top picks:
- Omega-3 Lemon Minis + Vitamin D3
- CardioWhey Protein in Chocolate and Vanilla (perfect for post-workouts!)

WHAT WE LEARN:
- Hear about some of Taco’s experiences traveling the globe

- How Mandy manages meals alone at home while Taco is traveling
- What to do while on your own while your Significant Other is away
HOW TO AVOID “BUSINESS TRAVEL TRAPS”
Consider if traveling occasionally versus frequently:
- Aim for balance – if going out to a big dinner with co-workers, have a lighter breakfast and/or lunch
- Plan out meals and what to order in advance, including while in the airports and on the plane
- Pace yourself – if a frequent traveler, not every meal has to be epic
FITTING FITNESS INTO BUSINESS TRAVEL
Avoid the rut of sitting and eating in meetings all day long:
- Use the hotel gym
- Wake up early to add in a workout since days and evenings can be packed agendas
- Do an efficient 30 Minute Workout (get some HIIT-spiration here)
- Hotel room workouts by packing your own jump rope or resistance band, or by simply doing body weight exercises including pushups, squats, and burpees
STAYING ON TRACK WHILE TRAVELING
- Make yourself a priority
- Know when you have choices versus no control
- Don’t have to have every meal offered to you (especially on international flights)
- Don’t have to indulge in every meal
- Avoid the “Last Supper” mentality
WHAT ABOUT THE ONE LEFT BEHIND?
If your Significant Other is traveling but you’re left behind at home:
- Establish comfort level for going out to eat on own vs staying in
- Take the opportunity to do something for yourself
- Enjoy foods or activities you don’t do as often due to accommodating other people’s schedule
