Eating… On the Road

It is challenging to eat my diet on the road while not pregnant, but toss in the added excitement of rotating food interests and it is quite impossible. I travel 2-3 days a week for work typically and I have to plan ahead.

2 days and 1 night is always in the same area and often I can stay at my mom and her partner Drew’s house which makes it easier so I can cook, etc. But when I don’t stay there, I have to make accommodations for it. When I don’t have a car, and have to travel by train or plane, that makes things even a bit more complicated.

Here are just a few things I try to always carry:

  • Individual packets of raw almond butter and rice cakes.
  • Large honey crisp apple and a folding knife.
  • Tangerines or oranges when in season.
  • For breakfast, Qia mix.
  • Extra tea bags and tea cup.
  • Dehydrated beet chips.
  • Extra gallon jug of water in the back of my car (fill it up fresh before each trip) to use to fill up my water bottle when it is empty.
  • All-Natural sucking candies.
  • Rice puffs and toasted almonds.
  • Raw bars.

Sounds like a lot, but I like variety. I do my best to try to have a salad twice a day and if I am just going for an overnight I will bring hard boiled eggs.
