I received compensation from Bayer Consumer Health, makers of MiraLAX® to write this post. MiraLAX® is a laxative used to treat occasional constipation. All opinions are entirely my own. #EaseTheDay #CollectiveBias.
Summer is in full swing and that means many of you are planning on taking a family vacation! You might be hitting the beach, the lake or the trails but one thing is certain, you’ll likely be eating out. Oh those big lobsters, juicy steaks and spicy quesadillas are calling your name and you just can’t wait to try out some new hot spots. After going on many vacations, myself, we have put together 5 tips for eating out on vacation that you need to know!
I’m sure you researched your hotel and other aspects of your vacation so make sure you do the same for the restaurants you will be dining at. Even if you are sitting outside and about to go to the establishment, make sure you check out their reviews. Service, food and price are topics you need to know about to make sure you have an excellent dining experience! Do you need a kids menu, dress code or would you like live music while you dine? Use a reputable site like google reviews so the food part doesn’t ruin your vacation!
Look for Coupons
A little advance prep on your part can save you lots of $$$ and we all like to do that, right! You can score some great coupons or specials by going to the restaurants website in advance and looking at what they offer. You can also search some of the large coupon sites to see what special offers are going on. Most restaurants do this nowadays especially restaurants in high traffic and vacation destinations spots! They want to bring you in and you want to have a great experience so it is a win-win.
Try something new
We all have our ole faithful menu item. You want to try something new but you are just too scared so you settle for the same ole Chicken Parm or Chicken Salad you always get. Why not try something new and totally amazing while on vacation because they do say, “when in Rome.” You will talk about it for years to come when reminiscing your vacation with loved ones. Your conversations will consist of “remember the best ever Frog Legs we ate on vacation” or “I will never forget how gross that Shrimp Scampi was” but hey it’s all about enjoying yourself, trying new things and making memories on vacation. Just do it! If you hate it, you can always order something else! Be adventurous and ask the waiter what they suggest! If you did your research beforehand, you will already have an idea of the menu.
Since you will be eating out (or even in) on your family vacation you need to make sure you are prepared for anything thrown your way. I always take my own wet wipes, hand sanitizer and things to do for the kids because there is a good chance you are going to need them at some point while eating out on vacation. I also bring along my MiraLAX® because it provides effective, more natural relief from occasional constipation and believe me, you will probably need it. I love that it comes in a bottle or these really cool little MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax so you can take it on the go! Vacation is a time to try new things, including new foods, which might not always agree with your body. MiraLAX® works with your body’s natural process to provide effective relief from occasional constipation.
It works with the body, so MiraLAX® provides a gentle experience, and doesn’t cause harsh side effects. It is different than stimulant laxatives because those forcefully stimulate the nerves in your colon. Use MiraLAX® as directed. It works with the water in your body to hydrate, soften, and ease, unblocking your system naturally. I always stop at Walmart to pick up my MiraLAX® and any other little goodies I will need while away from home on vacation.
Above all, enjoy yourself as this is your time to relax with family or friends and make memories. If you usually rush through your meal and leave, try just conversating and relax. Stay awhile, take in the atmosphere and even meet some of the locals. They will be able to tell you the best things to do and other great restaurants to eat out at while you are vacation. Make this time special so you can truly enjoy your vacation and all the fun that comes with eating out at new or different places.
