Travel Food Documentary - South American Food Essentials.
Next week I am headed out to Southern California to the Natural Products show Expo West – I’ll be gone for 5 days and you know what that means? I’ll be using all the tricks up my sleeve to eat organically as possible and stay chemical free while eating on the road. This trip is bound to be easier than most – I’ll be surrounded by tons organic products for goodness sakes! I am planning to blog my daily eats and trip report – so you can see all the details of how I travel and the cool seminars, products and people I encounter… To say that I am excited is an understatement!
Last month I received an interesting email from the singer of the band Rehab – He asked me for tips on how he can eat more vegetables and be healthier on the road. He said sometimes the only option to find something to eat is a truck stop. Whoa. Can you say nightmare!?!
I immediately sent him the following links of past posts about eating while traveling. If you haven’t read these yet – please take a moment and get caught up!
I’d like to think one of my special talents in life is eating healthy while traveling… Because I am so passionate about it. Eating healthy + traveling = true love!
Back in the day when I didn’t know what to eat or how to eat or find good food, I would get total crazy anxiety about traveling. Thinking I would have to “diet” before and after just to maintain my weight and always do some sort of detox after I came back because of all the foreign substances I was going to be putting into my body.
That was then… because now travel is an absolute breeeeeeze…
When I have more time one day – I’ll tell you a horror story that led me to live the lifestyle I am living now. A crazy work schedule with lots of travel , serious weight gain and appendicitis…. all the ingredients for the making of one Food Babe.
In an effort not to repeat myself in earlier posts – I’d like to share three more tips to help you when you find yourself on the road again and when options are limited. These tips are in addition to all the other tips I’ve said before and strategies I deploy while traveling.
1. Make your smart phone your best friend. It will find you the nearest grocery store, farmers market, vegetarian restaurant at the touch of a finger… You may think your only option is a truck stop – but I bet you that you can find a grocery store just as easy – access to fresh produce (maybe not organic – but better than eating processed foods, transfat and preservatives from a truck stop). Many grocery stores have a salad bar – make a big one – make two or three, for goodness sakes! Stick them in a cooler in your car or hotel fridge for later. You can also buy pre-washed salads easily too. Bring ready made bags of black lentils, nuts, brown rice for added protein. (Trader Joe’s carries a great variety.) Don’t have a smart phone? Be best friends with Google before you hit the road and do some planning before your next destination.
