Away From Home Cooking
Extended Stay America and the American Cancer Society® have collaborated to share some of their favorite recipes for eating better when traveling. Perfect for families on-the-go, or travelers seeking delicious home-cooked meals, these recipes are a great way to help you feel at home while you’re away from home.
From deliciously indulgent Candy Bar Pie to the comfort of Chicken and White Bean Soup from the American Cancer Society, there are recipes to fit any appetite within a balanced eating lifestyle.
To help you pick your recipes for a mix of indulgent and healthier, we asked the American Cancer Society to select recipes that particularly fit the guidelines of healthier eating.
Noted with a purple asterisk, it means the recipe fits within the following simple guidelines.
- Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
- Limit red and processed meats, refined grains and added sugars.
- Smaller portion sizes – In today’s super-sized world, watching portion sizes is important.
- Eat in and cook your own food – meals eaten out tend to have more calories, fat, sugar and salt and be less nutritious.
Happy travels and enjoy good eating!
