Nathalie Rhone, founder of All Good Eats, fills us in on how to stay healthy on vacation.
If you've found yourself struggling to stay healthy on vacation, good news - we feel you. That's why we reached out to Nathalie Rhone, registered dietician, healthy-living guru, and queen of staying fresh-faced on the road!
Read on for Nathalie's healthy traveling hacks as she dishes on everything from the road trip snacks she loves to the airport yoga that could totally reinvigorate your trip.
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself, your business, and why you were inspired to pursue nutrition!
A: I am a Registered Dietitian and Functional Medicine Nutritionist who loves good food and feeling great! I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Cornell University and a Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition from New York University. I opened a private nutrition practice in NYC, Nutrition by Nathalie LLC, so I could help people be the best versions of themselves. My practice focuses on health and wellness using an integrative approach, and my food philosophy follows a clean-eating, mostly plant-based lifestyle, packed with organic, whole foods full of big flavor. I also started All Good Eats, a social media health and wellness brand focusing on practical recipes and leading a clean, holistic lifestyle, so I could reach as many people as possible. I have always been passionate about health, wellness, and especially nutrition… it just took me a while to realize that I could actually make a career out of it.
Q: We hear you’re a Hamptons vet. Have you explored any other getaway spots outside NYC? If not, is there somewhere you're dying to go?
Locally, I love Chatham, Massachusetts (Cape Cod!). Tulum is also one of my all time favorite spots. My husband and I have been many times, and we plan to keep the tradition alive! Dying to go hiking around Patagonia and New Zealand… hoping to check those off the list in the next couple years :)
Q: It can be hard to stay healthy on vacation. Do you have any tips for clean eating on the road?
A: Always plan ahead and be prepared. Pack snacks no matter what. Even if you don’t think you’re going to get hungry! Think fresh fruit, cut up raw veggies, unsalted nuts and seeds. Bring full meals if you have a long drive or flight. Big salads, veggie heavy entrees. Try to stay away from anything too salty, and drink tons of water! While traveling move around as much as possible -- stretch your legs, walk to the bathroom, get in downward dog during a layover! Really try to use travel time for rest, relaxation, and doing something productive like reading a book that’s been on your shelf for months or listening to the new podcast you’ve been wondering about. Have a game plan – this will help you avoid eating out of boredom or drinking one too many glasses of wine on your flight!
Q : We’ve seen you rocking face masks on your IG @allgoodeats. What are your favorite ways to rejuvenate mid-week?
A: Love a good face mask! My go-tos are Cocokind Chlorophyll Mask and Lerosett Clay Mask. Working out is also super important to me. I try to move every day. You’ll typically find me at Tracy Anderson sweating it out. Every once in a while I treat myself to a deep tissue massage or acupuncture, which keeps me grounded and feeling good.
Q: Just for fun - are there any spots you’re loving in NYC right now? We’re always on the hunt for a new hangout!
A: Bar Pitti and abcV.
