Trying to eat healthy while travelling can be a big challenge

Travelling and eating new foods is incredibly exciting and enjoyable. Experiencing new foods is all part of the fun, and helps you get to know the new place you’re in. But, you need to maintain balance, and reduce exposure to foods that may not make you feel that great.

At HideAway Haven, we make it easy for you to eat healthy and feel great while you are travelling, with many healthy options offered during your stay.  Our healthy options include Chia Breakfast Pudding with local fresh berries, maple syrup and toasted almond flakes.  We make our own toasted muesli packed with dried fruits, nuts and healthy grains.  We serve home-made bread including Sour Dough, Wholemeal, Dinkle Seed, Khorasan and Gluten Free. Or try one of our many varieties of smoothies made from 100% local fresh fruit.  For those who enjoy a hot breakfast, poached eggs from our local bio dynamic farmer, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms.  We now offer healthy spiralised veggie breakfast bowls.

Whether you enjoy vegetarian, vegan, plant-based, paleo we have lots of varied options for you.  No matter how long your stay is with us, there are new options to choose from every morning.

We have been challenged while we have been travelling through the USA.  We made it a priority to stay at hotels that offered a mini-fridge in our room. This enabled us to stock healthy foods in our room for easy access and saved us big dollars by being able to purchase our own breakfast and snack foods.

At our hotel free breakfast buffet, the least healthy things are served such as bacon, watery scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausages, waffles, cranberry muffins and fruit flavoured yoghurts to name a few.

A choice of cereals such as Cheerios, Wheaties, Raisin Bran, Frosted Flakes and Fruit Loops, often stale, and sometimes with lukewarm milk to boot and nothing but sugary, dessert-like breakfast items such as Danish Pastries.

There is no variety and this is particularly pronounced as we stayed several days in our hotels. How many days in a row can you eat runny eggs, shrivelled up fatty sausages and bacon or very lame, yet highly fattening waffles with fake maple syrup?

As health conscious hostesses, we have taken the guesswork out of deciding how to manage a healthier style of travel, with countless options for healthy choices.  For those that still want bacon and creamy scrambled eggs, be assured they are still available at HideAway Haven and are freshly cooked to order.
