Nutrition On The Run!
Sometimes we find ourselves on the run, away from home or a kitchen and unable to prepare a high quality, nutritious meal. Places like an airport, on a road trip or stuck in traffic are often the times folks struggle with making a food choice that contributes to their health.
I’d like to share some examples that work for our family (children included) when we are on the go. The key strategy is being prepared beforehand.
- Grass-fed beef jerky (soy free, gluten free choices)
- Apples, carrots, celery sticks, sweet peppers
- Nut butters, raisins, fresh raw nuts
- Hard boiled eggs in a bag sprinkled with sea salt
- Canned sardines in olive oil
- Epic Food bars
- 90% dark chocolate
A little preparation and thinking ahead will help in avoiding a “will-power” choice and keep you working towards your health goals. Your stable blood sugar will keep you motoring along and your children will be better able to maintain focus and behavior skills.
And for the few times we find ourselves with no positive options and unprepared, we just fast. You likely aren’t going to die if you don’t eat for a few hours.
