This week we are traveling for my husband’s work. It has been over a year since I wrote anything about eating when traveling, so I thought it was about time to let you see what I do when we are traveling. I have to be very careful of what I eat since I am very sensitive to gluten and other items. Trying to find places to eat and stay on your meal plan can be a challenge, if you do not have these tips.
- Stay at a place that has a kitchenette
- Make a quick grocery run
Staying at a hotel that has a kitchenette can make all the difference for you staying on plan. By utilizing the kitchenette you will save yourself a lot of frustration, especially if you are in a location that does not have a variety of options for your WFPB(Whole Food Plant Based) or Vegan way of eating.
After getting off the plane and getting our car we hit the grocery store to get some basic items:
- Berry tray
- Veggie tray
- Salad greens
- Bottled water
- Almond milk
These were a few things to have on hand to make eating healthy easier. The hotel we stay at offers breakfast and evening snacks. I usually just do the breakfast.
My choice: Oatmeal from the hotel and added berries from the store, and you cannot forget the coffee. I packed some packets of ground flaxseed and (sometimes) almond butter packets.
These few tips help me every time I travel or I am away from home to keep myself healthy and energized.
