Green and leafy sandwiches with turkey or ham, make for a great sandwich. Most importantly do not forget the baby carrots and ranch dip!

Eating for Some Real Energy

You’re going to want to chow down on wholegrain foods, mainly loaves of bread and pasta, especially if you have long hikes and adventures ahead of you. Try to pair these with some boiled eggs for hits of protein for your muscles. Include hits of energy in the form of grain bars and rice crackers. And these items are all easily picked up from local shops too! Tip: Rocky Mountain National Park offers great hiking trails. These are just some of the foods you should eat while traveling.

Healthy In The Hotel

Finally, you can eat healthy in the hotel as well, especially if you’ve got some self-catering accommodation at your disposal. Using the kitchen or portable stove you have at hand, you can steam or boil vegetables,. Pair them with some boiled rice that you’ve covered in spices – these are sold in little pots.
