Are raw vegetables and fruits healthy if you're travelling?

Only if you are consuming vegetables and fruits in certifiably hygienic restaurants. If it’s the monsoon, especially in a developing country, completely avoid raw vegetables and fruits. Rains, poor sanitation and bacteria should not be mixed together as the results can be drastic.

Unless the vegetables and fruits are thoroughly washed, cleaned and cooked you will be at risk of catching a food borne disease. Also, if eating street-food in countries that don't monitor street food safety, refrain from consuming raw meat, food that is left in the open for a long time and food that should be refrigerated. These steps will help you prevent food borne diseases.
