The Road Trip Diet (Travel and Lose Weight): Food Tip #3, Reduce Packaging

Food packaging is bad for the environment and seldom the best choice for your health.

Packaged foods contain more chemicals, additives, sodium, fat, and other unhealthiness.

Seek fresh, sensible alternatives to packaged foods whenever possible. For instance, at a convenience store, instead of a bag of chips, crisps, or candy, buy a piece of fresh fruit or a bag of cashews or almonds.

Skip These Snacks!
