While on the road, getting sick is the last thing on your mind. Nutrition and exercise can go by the wayside while on vacation, but these tips will make it easy to stay healthy and get your daily dose of vitamin C without taking horse pills.

 

When most people think of vitamin C, they picture an orange. While this fruit is no slouch when it comes to supplying vitamin C, there are plenty of non-citrus foods that help you get your daily dose. Spice things up with chili peppers. According to Health Magazine, half a cup of peppers contains over 100 mg of vitamin C. Red bell peppers have a similar vitamin profile while green bell peppers deliver slightly less vitamin C.

 

On the sweeter side, have some papaya — one cup contains about 80 mg of vitamin C. Strawberries boast similar benefits and may also help brighten your teeth, reports Health. Or snack on two kiwi fruits for more than 130 mg of vitamin C.

 

When all else fails, a glass of orange juice can always help up your vitamin C quota. Even if vitamin C cannot prevent the sniffles, this water-soluble vitamin is part of a healthy diet and can help your body build immunity and fight off germs.
