This saying couldn't ring truer when it comes to trying to eat healthy while on a road trip! Something that I've been trying to do for the last several weeks is eat 6 small healthy meals throughout the day. Well, let me just tell you, when you're in the car for 7 hours, spending most of your time on the turnpike and your options are limited...make sure you PACK FOOD! Dining out is hard enough, but try dining out and depending on your exits to provide you with some sort of health conscious food; it's not happening.
Next time, I'll be sure and pack some foods to get me through the car ride. I was reading my trainer, Kelly Gonzalez's, website http://www.kellygonzalez.com/ and she gave great suggestions about packing a cooler with snacks. She calls it "Kelly's Kooler"
Some things that I'll be sure to pack in the future would be:
Hard Boiled Eggs
Turkey Sandwiches (on whole grain bread with lettuce and tomato)
I think that this will make it so much easier and I won't find myself scrambling to find something nutritious to eat. It is a shame to work so hard on cleaning up your diet and getting the right foods at the right times only to have your efforts wasted when you find yourself not prepared.
