Many of you will be traveling during the xmas / new years time to visit friends and family. You may have concerns about how you are going to stick to your meal plan while on the road. It really isn't a big deal if you plan for it. Most people run into problems when they don't plan and have to come up with food on the go. Fast food is always there and it's fast and easy. But if you put a little time into it, you can easily pre-pack a bunch of good stuff to take with you. If you are driving, you can pack all sorts of foods and a cooler.
Some good choices are hard boiled eggs, nuts and seeds, fruit and veggies, pre-cooked chicken or other lean meats, almond butter, stevia, yerba mate tea, and of course, your Prograde supplements. Ziploc baggies, Tupperware containers and coolers are some choices for storage. If you stop at a motel overnight, you can try to get a room with a refrigerator and access to an ice machine to top off your coolers.
Hit the local grocery store to replenish fresh foods and restock before you head out on the second leg of your trip. If you fly, you can bring small amounts of nuts, veggies and fruits to eat as you can. When you have to eat airline foods, make the best choice and don't worry about it. If you go out to eat, there is nothing to fear. Get your favorite protein source with veggies and salad and go easy on the pasta, breads, rice and desserts. Go light on sugar and sodium. Drink lots of water throughout your trip. And most of all, enjoy yourself and have fun! If you do slip up, roll with it and get back on track as soon as you can - like the next meal. Missing meals must be avoided. Healthy eating is mostly about choices - make the right ones and enjoy the holidays.
