Ever thought to travel with peanut butter?
How about OIAJ on the go!
Eating well while traveling just takes a bit of planning
I brought my near-empty jar along with trail mix and this packet of Cinnamon Raisin oats I’ve been carrying around for ages. With only 6 grams of sugar, Erewhon makes some of the healthiest instant oats I’ve seen. [The hotel did have plain oats, but you never know so I always pack a packet..]
I mixed the oats, a small banana, some skim milk and hot water in a cup, and when I got back to my room, poured it into my jar.
Toppings included some Starbux dried fruit and trail mix.
Plus some coffee.
- Whole fruit
- Whole grain cereals with milk (Cheerios, bran flakes)
- Whole wheat toast with a little butter and jam
- Hard-boiled eggs
- Plain oatmeal
- Fruit salad
- Homemade latte (half coffee, half milk will give you more protein and satiety)
- Yogurts (which are usually made with artificial sweeteners and fillers)
- Seemingly whole wheat bagels (I think the chance that the toast is WW is higher than the bagels)
- Cereals that might not be whole grain
- Fruit juices
- Frozen waffles
- Peanut butter that is not all natural ( 🙁 )
- The pre-made sausage biscuit that the sports team was chowing down on had 410 calories and 4 grams of trans-fat. Yuck.
- The pastries and muffins (probably all have trans-fats and little satiety)
Pick a fruit, a grain and a protein from the good choices list to aim for a balance of fuel and satiety. And better yet, pack some nuts, nut butters, trail mix, oatmeal packets and whole fruit so you’re prepared for the worst.
Off to YOGA soon!
