What are some healthy food ideas for international trave?

Question by brit_blou: What are some healthy food ideas for international trave?
I am flying from Germany to the states and I really hate airplane food and am always hungry what are some good healthy snacks I can bring. P.S I don’t know if I am allowed to bring fruits and veggies to the U.S because I am coming from Germany.

Best answer:

Answer by Patti
You say you want to eat some good snacks on the plane, and fruits and veggies are that. No one will tell you that you can’t bring anything you’ve eaten to the US. By the time you’re through with it, no one will know what it once was.

OraMedica International Takes a Bite Out of Gum Disease with Oral Health Booklets for Employees



Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 19, 2007

Easy-to-read informative booklets that explain gum disease and the connections to an individual’s general health are now available for companies to offer employees as part of their health and wellness initiatives.

“Take a Holistic BITE Out of Gum Disease” includes tips to recognize signs of the disease, treatment options, and how consumers can help reduce risk factors for heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia, and pre-term births — conditions that represent a large percentage of what companies spend on employee’s health care.

Created by two health-conscious dentists, the “goal was to produce entertaining yet strong, clear holistic dental health tips that could improve health and save on healthcare utilization and dental and medical expenditures,” says Dr. Andrea Brockman, President of OraMedica International, LLC.

OraMedica’s founders developed and designed the series of oral health tips booklets, based on their 25 years in dental practice treating medically compromised patients and teaching dental health and wellness to people with chronic health problems.

“We thoroughly evaluated each tip for overall appeal, comprehension, appropriateness and health supportiveness,” said Dr. Vincent DiLorenzo, CEO of OraMedica International, LLC.

A whitepaper, “Reining in Healthcare Costs: A Dental Advocacy Approach” provides employers with information on how dental booklets are an easy, effective, and economical way to contain healthcare costs and improve employee productivity. The paper can be downloaded at http://www.oramedica.com/whitepapers.html

Strengthen Workplace Wellness Programs with Free Oral Health Tips E-Booklets from OraMedica International



Muncy Valley, PA (PRWEB) November 6, 2007

OraMedica International, LLC announced today the availability of oral links to systemic health-tips E-Booklets for employees, designed to improve the long-term health of the workforce while reducing employers’ healthcare costs.

The easy-to-read oral health tips E-Booklet, “Take a Holistic Bite Out of Gum Disease” is free to employers as a PDF download. The E-Booklet is a practical and cost efficient way to improve overall employee health status and help control company expenses.

Incorporating dental health education into workplace wellness promotion notably mitigates the risks for heart disease, diabetes, pregnancy complications, cancer, and pain. Wellness coordinators who understand and support the dental-systemic health links impart significant dollar savings in employee health costs, absenteeism, healthcare premiums, workers’ compensation, and other healthcare-related expenditures.

“Employers should recognize that anything that helps maintain health and detects potential health problems before they occur—and that includes dental conditions–keeps employees healthy and on the job,” says Dr. Andrea Brockman, president of OraMedica International. “The tips in this E-Booklet not only can improve employee oral health but can actually help prevent costly medical treatment and lost work days.”

The incorporation of dental connections to systemic health, a missing link in wellness and disease management programs, causes ripples throughout all wellness initiatives. Advocates for health and wellness who seek better employee compliance in their programs will appreciate the reinforcement of healthy lifestyles, smoking cessation, nutrition, stress management, and fitness — all contributors to the state of one’s oral health.

Placed into the company’s intranet or given as a link to employees for their home PC, “Take a Holistic Bite Out of Gum Disease” is an effective and engaging way to deliver important health information as well as resource links to natural products and services. No special employee incentives are necessary for compliance. For most, staying out of the dental chair and avoiding costly treatment is a motivator to refer to these easy to access health promoting tips.

OraMedica firmly believes that oral health awareness and timely dental treatment help reduce company healthcare costs. Promoters of workplace wellness immediately see the relevance and recognize the significance to employee attendance and productivity. Even in the absence of dental insurance benefits, these E-Booklet dental health tips help to reduce the number of sick days and production loss due to employee dental problems or illness.

FitnessTips101.com Helps Busy Professionals Get Fit During International Physical Fitness and Sports Month


Ladner, BC, Canada (PRWEB) May 21, 2009

For most busy professionals, the hectic pace of the corporate world can leave very little room or energy for anything else, especially when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This month, in observance of International Physical Fitness and Sports Month, FitnessTips101.com is giving busy professionals access to several online tools and resources to help them establish or reestablish their commitment to physical fitness. The site will feature daily tips, surveys and new book reviews to help busy professionals identify the health and fitness regimens and publications best suited to their specific needs and goals.

International Physical Fitness and Sports Month was initially launched to promote healthy behaviors, physical activity and overall fitness. Now observed annually during the month of May by trainers, athletes, medical professionals and fitness enthusiasts, it’s an ideal time to begin working towards new fitness goals.

Launching a fitness plan is no easy feat, and maintaining it can be even more difficult. To help busy professionals get in gear and stick to their plan, FitnessTips101.com is offering the guidance they’ll need to meet their goals, just in time for spring and summer vacations, also referred to by many as the dreaded ‘bikini season’.

“For many professionals, when the business day comes to a close, they find that they are often too tired or too stressed to entertain the idea of working out,” said Scott Gray, founder of FitnessTips101.com. “But research shows that regular exercise greatly reduces feelings of stress and anxiety, and boosts energy. Once you can commit to incorporating physical activity in your daily regimen, you’d be surprised at how it can improve your quality of life. And National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is the perfect time to make positive changes.”

FitnessTips101.com is a leading online resource for health and fitness tips. While many fitness websites offer fad diets and ineffective exercise routines, FitnessTips101.com is designed to offer expert advice and information on healthy eating, results-driven workouts, statistics, guidance and simple tips that can be implemented easily, especially for people who are always on the go with very little time to spare.

The site regularly features helpful articles on a number of health and fitness topics including weight loss, ideal body weight, nutritional supplements, exercise equipment and heart disease. One of the site’s most popular sections is its “Motivation & Obstacles” page. While many sites offer tips on how to start healthy eating and exercise regimens, very few offer much-needed assistance to stay motivated and overcome roadblocks along the way.

“This month, we want to encourage busy professionals to stop procrastinating and move forward with establishing healthy lifestyle goals that will make an impact on their overall health and fitness level,” said Gray. “But it doesn’t stop there. In addition to encouraging people to jumpstart their healthy lifestyle, we want to encourage them every step of the way. I’m a champion of long-term success and that’s what I want for all of the busy professionals that visit our website.”
