Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Eating Healthy On The Road

I’m visiting family in a few weeks. My goal is to stay on program during the trip. No problem once I arrive. I can easily buy my own foods. My challenge is the actual road trip. I’m driving to Texas from Virginia – over 1,400 miles.

It’s about a 20-hour drive – 2 days.  I want to keep to my 36 daily points and stay under 25g of carbs/day.  I thought about picking up a few Atkins shakes and bars, but I think I’ll save those for the plane ride back home. Instead, I’ll do this the old fashion way – prepare food for the trip.

I plan to start each day with a large breakfast. That should tap down on any hunger attacks and keep my blood sugar level steady all day. Otherwise I’ll rely on a small cooler filled with:

  1. Water & Home Brewed Ice Tea
  2. Seeds & Nuts
  3. Boiled Eggs
  4. Cheese
  5. Chopped Veggies – Mixed Greens, Celery, Peppers, Cucumbers

I plan to take some home-made salad dressing too as anything off the shelf is too expensive point wise.

If I need some quick protein, I can always order a burger without the bun or find steak at truck stops.

Now I just need to figure out what I’m going to do for exercise.
