Planning a Fun & Healthy Summer Vacation

Planning a healthy & active summer vacationWhen planning vacation there is so much to consider, transportation, lodging, sightseeing; the list goes on. But what about staying healthy and active? For those of us who work year round to live a healthy lifestyle, it’s tough to break that cycle and frankly we don’t want to. You’ve worked hard to reach your fitness and dietary goals and vacation is no time to lose ground. That’s not to say there isn’t room to indulge, but it’s important to prioritize your health while you’re away.

Plan Ahead
The most important component to enjoying a healthy and active vacation is planning. Put some thought into it before you pack up and head out. Do some research on your destination before you leave home. Find out about local restaurants that serve healthy and delicious cuisine. Learn about the most popular outdoor activities among locals. Find a gym or hiking trail so you can stick to your fitness routine.

Even if you’re not a big planner, it’s important to do a little recon before your summer vacation. If you don’t want to outline every moment of your trip, simply have a list of healthy restaurants and fun activities on hand. This will allow you to maintain a sense of spontaneity while still prioritizing your health. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

• Outdoor yoga classes
• Water parks
• Popular hiking trails
• Swimming holes or recreational rivers
• Kayaking rentals
• Bicycle rentals
• Gluten free restaurants
• Vegan restaurants
• Vegetarian restaurants

Here at Picazzo’s we have worked for years to craft what many consider to be the best pizza in Arizona. We source locally grown, organic vegetables whenever they are available. We are perhaps best known for our gluten free pizza dough. We have perfected it over the years, creating a gluten free pizza that is virtually impossible to identify as GF; an accomplishment we are quite proud of. If you’re planning to vacation in Scottsdale, Tempe, Paradise Valley, Sedona or Flagstaff this year, we encourage you to add us to your list of local spots to visit. Enjoy a selection of 87 gluten free options, 52 vegan options and 70 vegetarian options. Discover why ours is the best pizza in Arizona and enjoy the satisfaction of eating healthy while on vacation!
