Healthy Eats at The ACMA’s Awards Weekend

January 23, 2020

Featured on Written By: Kathryn Hummel

Making quality meals a priority when at a busy conference seems to be something we don’t keep at the top of the list. It ends up being for most, a long day with lots of networking and not enough fuel in the tank. 

Award Show weekends are also a great example of where healthier options are more scarce and may require you to get a little resourceful, especially when traveling to smaller towns and cities can mean options are a little less than what one might be used to. 

As you may have heard the term, you have to plan to succeed, these situations are no different! Planning ahead when you travel anywhere is guaranteed to help you be more successful at making healthier choices that your body will thank you after a busy event. 

Luckily, we’ve taken out the guesswork and compiled a list of healthy food options to help you get your #ACMAfuel only a short car ride or within a 20-minute walking distance away from the ACMA Awards weekend host hotel, Cambridge Inn and Suites in Red Deer, Alberta.
