I’ve heard people say you can eat healthy while traveling. Sometimes I wonder how much these people actually travel. Yes, you can eat healthy but it is much harder than eating healthy at home.
Last week I was connecting at the Las Vegas airport from Sacramento. Packing a lunch was not an option because I was coming from a hotel. It was lunchtime and I was getting a little hungry. I picked up a sandwich at Wolfgang Puck Express. I chose the grilled chicken sandwich with pesto. I know the pesto is not super healthy but the sandwiches were pre-made so I couldn’t ask them to hold the pesto. I figured a little pesto wouldn’t be that bad and if the sandwich had too much pesto I could scrape it off. The grilled chicken sandwich and a diet coke rang up at $15.07. Yikes- good thing it was a work trip and my expense account was paying.
I found a place to sit and started opening the sandwich. I noticed a nutritional information sticker on the back. Most places in the airport don’t have the nutritional info listed, so I didn’t see it when I purchased the sandwich. The sandwich had 750 calories with 46 fat grams. OMG… I ate ¼ of it and threw the rest away.
