They're looking for that 'healthy fast food' which is a joke for the most part anyways. I've never had a problem going to Publix or a market when I'm on vacation, I guess some people aren't as motivated.

I concur on that. Out of the three meals listed I would much prefer the skinless chicken breast over a protein shake and a few pieces of meat here and there.

I have to eat real food. Protein shakes just do not do it for me. Give me a piece of chicken on top of some greens and I am a pretty happy guy.

If you walk past a fruit & veg grocer grab an apple and/or banana and stay hydrated. Other than that you can only work with the food available at restaurants that you may or may not have any choice in going to - so I say relax and don't get bogged down counting calories.

I am aware that you can get healthy food at grocery stores in any part of the world. I was assuming the OP was refering to eating out.

By Deep South, I meant Atlanta. Florida has healthier food in general.

Well, who knows what kind of vacation the OP had in mind....

Apart from globetrotter's unusual practice, I'd say it's a cheap and extremely convenient way to ingest protein. why, I know you like to shoot down commonly-held beliefs, but some constructive criticism (with emphasis on the constructive part) could be more helpful in answering the OP's question. What would you do when travelling for business, when you have about 1h to eat dinner in an unfamiliar city?

I lived the first 16 years of my life in rural ass GA. If I could go the grocery store with my mother and find healthy food I'm sure grown men can too It's all about the actual WILL to be lean/healthy.

Ask someone for a recommendation or see what looks popular and eat there. I don't know, maybe I'm weird, but I don't carry protein powder in my carry-on while traveling.

Nothing. Read what I actually said, not what you expected me to say.

That was your response to the poster saying to get a chicken caesar salad without the dressing.

Well, neither do I.
So are you saying it doesn't matter where and what to eat? Most "popular" food can hardly be described as healthy.

Define 'healthy' and I'll do my best to answer your question.

I hear that pieces of wonder bread fried in vegetable oil and laden with salt along with bacon bits and a substance that is barely cheese qualifies as "health" food. Because caesar salad apparently only has chicken, lettuce, and dressing.

I've never seen a Caesar with bacon bits. (If it's real bacon, how is that unhealthy, anyway?)
Cheese, yes - but a sprinkling of mozzarella is not what makes Americans fat.
Pick around the croutons.

It's ridiculous to argue that grilled chicken on a bed of greens, even with a bit of mozzarella (or olive oil, or a couple of croutons) isn't good for you.

ehh... every caesar salad at every shitty restaurant I've ever seen has fake bacon bits.

Not even at TGI McFunsters spots have I seen that.
