Key Things to Make it Easier to Eat Healthier
- Book an apartment on Airbnb with a kitchen, coffee pot and a blender.
- Book a hotel with a refrigerator and coffee pot
- Order groceries online for home delivery – we like Thrive Market or Sunbasket
- Do not drink unfiltered tap water. Get a water bottle that has an incorporated filter.
- Try to purchase water in glass bottles, especially in the summer months.
- Bring a shaker smoothie bottle or a mini immersion blender.
- Avoiding plastic? Bring a small mason jar with a lid – perfect for giving your smoothie or Matcha green tea a good shake.
- Bring your favorite protein powder, collagen powder and/or greens powder. These can be sold separately, or you can prep small baggies.
- Ashwagandha powder (helps to cope with the stress of traveling)
- Beet powder (helps with constipation)
- Organic stevia packets – for a bit of sweetness (if tolerated).
- Bring seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, flax seed) and nuts (cashews, pistachios, almonds, walnuts)
- Choose dried fruit like cherries, goji berries, dates, figs.
- Pack your favorite protein bars
- Freeze some gluten-free flax seed muffins to take with you.
- Ask for oatmeal, with no added sugar. Add your own seeds, nuts, butter, almond butter, cinnamon, coconut milk or coconut oil to the oats.
- Have leftovers from the night before
- Order a fresh & hot breakfast – eggs, sausage or steak and sautéed vegetables
Salads: Salads are easy to make if you are staying for a few days, have a Tupperware and room to bring your own ingredients (may like to use an insulated lunch box):
- BPA-free can of cooked chicken or salmon
- Easy salad dressing (olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, herbs)
- Dried kale chips or beet chips
- Fresh mixed greens or sprouts (keep in an air-tight container, put a paper towel at the bottom)
- BPA-free can of chickpeas or any beans
- Seeds and nuts.
- Gf crackers (we like Mary’s Gone Crackers)
- Hard boiled egg (these will smell, so don’t open in closed quarters)
Make a Quick Wrap:
You can use a corn or flour tortilla (if gluten is tolerated) or a coconut wrap like these I found on Thrive Market. Prepare a few ahead of time, secure with toothpicks and store in a Tupperware. What can you put in a wrap? Anything from the items mentioned above under “Salads.”
