If you usually on travel, you don't often have the chance to cook your own food. And the food in restaurants/caterer almost never cook with saturated fat, how do you deal with it?

Is this a joke? You know this a Paleo website, right?

Also one of my biggest practical inconveniences. Many restaurant dishes fry perfectly good Paleo contents in veggie oil, ruining them for me. Presumably, one day restaurants will change this practice as word gets out, but it might take a while.

well certainly eating oily food is going to give you oily-unhealthy results. what you could do is eat more fruits during traveling. this way you could shift the weight from oily foods to healthy foods. try and think about all the healthy food options that come to your mind when your traveling. carrying green tea bags is one thing. opting boiled foods is also a choice if the option is vailable

I often run into this problem during travel.. which I do a lot of..

Generally I do what Mike suggests above; get grilled meats, foods that I know are not fried such as a baked potato, salad with no dressing, etc. Also, I am a big fan of Asian food, but Asian restaurants are overwhelmed with stir-fried things. So, I get soup... at Vietnamese restaurant I get Pho, at Thai restaurants I get coconut curry, etc.

Sushi is never a bad thing and you get the added bonus of yakitori and seaweed salads.

I guess it comes down to making the absolute best choice you can, but really don't beat yourself up about it.

Hi, These are some healthy eating tips while your travelling Soup and healthy salad might be enough for a healthy meal. Fruit and yogurt will give you some calcium mineral and protein without too much saturated body fat. Drink low-fat milk or juice instead of soft beverages and orange-flavored carbonated beverages. Bring baked whole grain biscuits along on your journey. This is good for added fiber and nutritional value. Nuts such as almonds, cashews, and peanuts contain polyunsaturated body fat and are easy to take on a journey. Most important bring plenty of water.
