One of the things I enjoy most about returning home from a trip is getting back to my daily juicing routine in the kitchen.
Jetlag is probably my least favorite part of travel, so here’s my how-to-guide on how to battle time zone shifts:
-Hydrate like cray before, during, and after flights
-Bring a bottle on board (nalgene, kleen kanteen) to fill up with h20
-Avoid alcohol and processed sugar like the plague
-Carry healthy travel snacks like apples, almonds, and coconut water (note: you won’t be able to sneak in liquids, but these can be easily purchased)
-Pack essential comforts like an eyemask, earbuds, and a travel pillow for a relaxing flight
-Overdose on whole, live foods like green juice (kale, collard greens, and celery is a staple of mine), kale, avocado, and quinoa
-Keep your carbs low and proteins healthy (tuna, salmon, and legumes)
-Set an alarm to remind you to get to bed by 11am
-Meditate before bed (yoga nidra is a preferred method of mine)
-Get your om on the day of or after you land to stretch out your cramped muscles and tired airplane legs in a hatha yoga class

NICE!! I use all of these too… and (if possible) go outside and get some sunshine. The exercise helps and the sunlight helps restore our circadian rhythms.
Absolutely! Being outdoors and active definitely helps to relieve jetlag as well. Nice addition.
