Nutrition: The Best Tips to Eating Right While Traveling For Sailing

I love the sailing season:

Yes, generally I love the fact that I will be out of the home and on the water for some time because I identify myself as a thalassophile. Vast expanses of water simply enchant me and bring out my element.

But what I hate about sailing!

I think hate is too strong a word. Dislike is more than I feel. I do not like the fact that while I will be over the waters my fitness routine will be disrupted. Also, my nutrition or the normal intake of food does get affected each time I am out there.

Also the traveling bit; you have to make sure that you pack just the right food when you are traveling to the regatta.

The last time, I took with me roasted chickpeas which I made with only four ingredients – chickpeas, cayenne, salt, and olive oil. They were so delicious and nutritious too. I remember reading and taking the recipe from

One word of caution:

If you are a foodie and you love experimenting, this is not the time. Avoid new food in possible ways.

Also hydrate yourself well:

Remember no soft drinks or aerated drinks. In order to do yourself good, stay to good old H2O. Drink as much as you can.
