- I know there will be some "on the road" type meals that I cannot control, so I will go in trying to make the healthiest decision I can. If it's McDonalds, (then, so help me god- just kidding), then I am going to get a grilled chicken sandwich (no bun) and enjoy my fries.
- Pack foods that are easy to assemble, prepare and eat. This is KEY, since i will have complete control over what these things will be. A sample menu for our 3 days would be: Pre-made cups of steel cut oats and I will add banana slices, Pre-made egg muffin sandwiches (some without cheese and with lean ham), whole grain (or sprouted) bread and lunchmeat to make sandwiches, bags of chips (i have rice chips for myself), a pre-made pot of turkey chili, pre-made breakfast burritos (made with lean turnkey sausage and little cheese, all natural chicken "hot dogs"(i will have mine sans bun).
- Have plenty of (realistic) healthy snack options (that i actually like!) - Hard boiled eggs, bananas, rice cakes, nuts, packs of almond butter, guacamole or hummus. Pre-chopped and ready to eat veggies like carrot sticks, celery and red peppers. I can pre-make protein treats and individually wrap them, so i can just grab them if sitting by the pool or on the back of a horse 🐴 😬
4. Drink water. All. Day. Long. In addition to everything else i will be consuming, I will try to constantly have my water cup by my side. I will just refill that sucker and keep drinking every chance I get. Not only will i stay hydrated, but it helps with flushing out toxins from my not-so-good choices.
Here are some of the items that i have picked up for the trip:
