My Top 7 Travel Foods

Traveling is always tricky for my clients transitioning to a real food (or Paleo) way of eating. On the one hand, they need quick, convenient foods, but on the other hand, we don’t want to wreck their progress getting healthy either. Fortunately, there are a few strategies to prep before traveling AND make great choices while on the road that are delicious, filling, and effective at making real strides while traveling.

Quick, convenient foods contain everything detrimental to our progress – hydrogenated oils (hello trans fats anyone?); mostly omega-6 vegetable oils that are inflammatory in large doses (soybean oil, canola oil, peanut oil, etc.); lots of grains (including gluten-containing grains); refined sugars; and preservatives, food colorings, and dyes that have been linked to health issues and disorders like ADHD. It’s very true that convenience food can stall, halt, and take us back five steps in our vitality journey towards vibrant health, abundant energy, and lasting fat loss.

So what is a person to do when convenience IS a top priority? Is it really possible to travel AND eat healthy? I’m glad you asked! Here are my top five travel foods that are extremely tasty AND healthy! Comment below and let me know your favorites!

  1. Pork Rinds (made with NON-HYDROGENATED LARD) – for in the car and snacking
  2. Bacon (nitrate-free/pasture-raised when possible) – great protein and fat source
  3. Butter  (grass-fed is best) – put a Tbsp in your coffee for quick, filling energy
  4. Macadamia Nuts – a great bang for your buck. Eat a few nuts for a filling source of high quality healthy fats
  5. Coconut Milk (unsweetened) – drink alone or put in coffee
  6. Fruit of choice – just don’t overeat
  7. Beef jerky (gluten-free)

If you’re wary now because I’ve just listed six out of seven foods containing lots of “unhealthy” (supposedly) fats, I’m glad I’ve perked your interest! I’ve written at length about fats elsewhere. Check out this article for more info and lots of scientific references.

Beyond the prep work, there are also some simple strategies to implement DURING your trip to stick to your real food plan! Implement these on your next trip, or even at work, for success:

  1. Implement the Jump-Start Formula. Simply plug in the formula with foods on menus, no matter where you are at. If you haven’t watched the video of me giving you my proprietary formula, completely free of charge yet, click here to get it now.

  3. Take a small bottle of high quality olive oil in your purse. Top any salad for a refreshing, yummy meal.
