I am off on the road for work, for the next 6 days, and it seems only fitting that I share how I am going to still eat well, when away from home and without access to my fully equiped kitchen - you can do it too!
I am going to be working odd hours 12-10pm some days and 8am-7pm on others, but regardless of time of day, each client I see deserves the best out of their session, so I need to make sure my brain is in gear and switched on. The best way I know how to do that, is to fuel my body with all it requires nutritionally as well as keeping up some physical activity too.
With a little bit of planning and thought, you really do not have to rely on service stations and fast food outlets to survive, when on the road.
But not to totally do the local stores out of money either, I will shop local to top up my supplies as needed, fingers crossed they've some avocado, as I'm all out which is a total food tragedy :). and of course a cheeky caffeine fix along the way too (hopefully!).
I have booked simple accommodation for the five nights I am away and whilst there is no kitchen, I will have access to a shared fridge, and I will take my chilly bag for taking food onsite each day.
Not to get too boring or detailed, but here's the lowdown on how I am going to eat like a nutritional ninja, without breaking the budget.
Some of the remaining contents of my fridge became a crustless quiche. I've a couple of salads made up and picked the greens ready in the garden for more salads or smoothies (yes, my blender is coming with me!). Add in some leftover roast chicken and tins of tuna and voila! eating the rainbow, keeping the hunger at bay and fueling my way through the week.
As added extras or nice-to-haves, I'm also taking along some boosters in the form of, apple cider vinegar, spirulina, bee pollen, water kefir and my Latin style sauerkraut to keep the tummy happy.
With this powerhouse of nutrition going for the majority of the week, if time and location allows, there is also definitely room for a brunch or a treat meal too.
Fingers crossed for some nice weather in the foothills as the sneakers are packed and ready to go too.
Keep cooking and living nourished!
