Don’t let a road trip derail your smart food choices. Try these picks from health and nutrition expert Joy B. to stay slim.

At Starbucks

Joy’s choice: This may sound boring, but I’m a black coffee gal. Can’t stand the plain stuff? Stick to lattes and cappuccinos with skim or soy milk. If you’re craving an indulgent low-cal treat, try a tall Frappuccino “light” (hold the whipped cream), which has 165 calories and 3 g fat. As for tea, any unsweetened variety will do. My pick: Tazo Shaken Iced Passion Tea.

Stay-slim secret: Decide what to order before you go. Go to starbucks.com/menu (click “Nutrition”) for a calorie-count tool.

The passion tea is infused with hibiscus, known to lower blood pressure.

At the sandwich shop

Joy’s choice: These places are great because you can easily customize your order. My healthy favorite: a turkey breast sandwich on wholegrain bread with Dijon mustard, piled with vegetables such as lettuce, tomato, roasted peppers, pickles, onions and avocado.

Stay-slim secret: Requesting mustard, ketchup, BBQ sauce or hummus instead of mayo cuts an extra 80 to 100 calories.

At the ballgame

Joy’s choice: Typically, I eat beforehand… or sneak in my own snacks. When I’m with my family, we’ll often share a large bag of elephant peanuts: 28 peanuts are just 160 calories and full of protein. The shelling process slows down munching.

Stay-slim secret: You can enjoy your favorites – in the right amounts! Four snacks under 200 calories: 1/3 large soft pretzel (160 CAL), cotton candy (110 CAL), small cup frozen yogurt (150 CAL), large handful of Cracker Jack (120 CAL).

Stroll around the stadium: Make the seventh-inning stretch the seventh-inning walk. Every move counts!

At McDonald’s

Joy’s choice: Sometimes when I’m on the road with my kids and they’re restless for a quick lunch, we’ll hit the drive-through and order a bunch of grilled chicken snack wraps (the Honey Mustard and Chipotle BBQ are just 250 calories each!). Every once in a while I’ll order the salad with grilled chicken and low-fat dressing.

Stay-slim secret: If you’re craving a burger, just stick with a plain one stacked with lettuce, tomato, onion and a squirt of ketchup, mustard or BBQ sauce. Lose the top of the bun and you’ll save about 80 calories.

At the diner

Joy’s choice: I’m an omelet lover and can happily eat eggs for any meal. Try an egg-white omelet stuffed with vegetables. Request whole-grain toast and fruit salad in place of potatoes.

Stay-slim secret: Diner salads tend to come already tossed with about 6 Tbsp of dressing - that’s about 600 calories! So ask for the vinaigrette or house specialty on the side and drizzle on a few teaspoons.

Back to Nature Mini Chocolate Chunk Cookies ($3.5 for 6 mini-bags) a pouch of cookies – made with whole grains and semisweet chocolate – is just 170 calories.
