Gut health tips for when you're back from vacation

Introduction

When you're back from vacation, you can feel like your gut health is out of whack. You've been eating differently, maybe you've even been drinking alcohol since your last meal at home. It's no wonder that your intestines are confused! However, there are some things you can do to keep yourself from feeling sick while your system adjusts to normal again. In this article, we'll discuss why paying attention to your body after traveling is important and the steps you can take right now to feel better tomorrow morning— and every morning after that!

Traveling can wreak havoc on your body.

Traveling can be stressful and exhausting. You're on the road, you're surrounded by people who may or may not speak your language, and it's easy to get lost in a new place. That can be enough to stress anyone out, but it also means that your body might be more vulnerable to illness than usual. Your immune system might be weaker than normal because of all this travel stress; as such, you should take extra care when eating and drinking during travel days (and nights).

You'll probably eat at restaurants more often than usual when traveling--and those restaurants aren't always great about serving healthy food options like salads or vegetables instead of fries with every meal! So try not to splurge too much on unhealthy foods while away from home; try sticking with fruits instead of candy bars whenever possible! And don't forget: alcohol will dehydrate your body faster than anything else--so keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout each day!

When you're back, restore your gut health by eating probiotic foods.

When you're back from vacation and ready to get back into the swing of things, it's important that you restore your gut health by eating probiotic foods. Probiotics are good for gut health because they help keep bad bacteria at bay while also boosting immunity and digestion.

To get some probiotics into your system:

  • Eat yogurt or kimchi (a Korean fermented cabbage dish) daily. Yogurt contains live active cultures that can be beneficial to digestion, while kimchi has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels in some people.
  • Drink kombucha--a drink made by fermenting sweetened tea with yeast--or kefir--an effervescent fermented milk product similar to yogurt but less sour--once or twice a week as an alternative source of probiotics if you don't want another cupcake from Dunkin Donuts every day after work!

Eat fermented foods.

Fermented foods are a great place to start when you're looking to get your gut health back on track. These foods contain probiotics, which can help improve digestion and boost immunity. Probiotics are found naturally in some food products, but they're also easily added through fermentation--a process that uses bacteria or yeast to create new flavors and nutrients in food.

Fermented foods include yogurt, kefir (a fermented milk drink), sauerkraut (fermented cabbage), kimchi (spicy Korean pickled vegetables), and kombucha (fermented tea). You can find these items in most grocery stores or health food stores--and many restaurants offer them too! If you're not sure where your nearest store is selling fermented foods near you yet though...don't worry! There are plenty of ways for anyone interested in improving their gut health while traveling without having access everywhere they go.

Read the labels on your food as you shop.

Next, avoid processed foods and stick with whole foods like fresh fruits, vegetables (organic if possible), beans/legumes, and lean meats like chicken breast or fish when shopping for groceries. You'll also want to avoid sugar because too much can cause bloating and gas in some people; gluten because some people have sensitivities; soy because that's just not good for anyone's digestive tract; artificial sweeteners such as Splenda which may cause issues themselves such as gas pains due to their chemical makeup being similar enough that our bodies think they're real sugar so react accordingly by releasing insulin into our bloodstreams causing us all sorts of problems including weight gain over time! Finally, we come to preservatives: these are things added during processing so shelf life isn't shortened but beware--they can cause stomach issues too!

Don't stress about not eating healthy while traveling.

When you're traveling, it can be hard to keep up with your healthy habits. You might be tempted to eat unhealthy foods and skip your probiotics because stress makes them more difficult for your body to digest. If you have time before or after a trip, try these tips:

  • Stress can make digestion harder for everyone--so if possible, relax before meals. Try taking deep breaths or meditating for a few minutes before eating.
  • If possible, cook at home as much as possible while traveling so that you know exactly what's going into each meal (and avoid high-calorie restaurant meals).
  • Pack probiotic supplements in case of an emergency (like forgetting them at home!).

Conclusion

Traveling is stressful and tiring, but you don't have to let it ruin your health! Try these gut health tips when you're back from vacation and see how much better you feel.
