Eating While Traveling

November 10, 2008 by Administrator 

I spent the weekend traveling with a Saturday stop at my grandmother’s house and the following day at a tumbling meet for my oldest daughter. 

It’s easy to allow these little excursions to derail your fat loss efforts but they don’t have to. 

No one in my family can resist grandma’s homemade noodles and pies.  So, what do we do?  We enjoy them.  There is no need to stress when you’re visiting family as long as you make most of your choices smart. 

I had a good helping of vegetables and roast pork then shared some pie with my toddler.  She was only interested in the whipped cream anyways. 

The hardest part of the weekend was eating at the tumbling meet.  I have never understood why they serve such horrible food at sporting events.  It’s atrocious! 

Pretzels and canned cheese sauce

Tortilla chips and canned cheese sauce

Microwave butter popcorn

All sorts of candy and pop

I was able to bring my own snacks so this is what I did for this meet.  I ate a good breakfast of eggs and vegetables.  I brought a cooler filled with water bottles, an apple and some almonds.  After the meet we went to a sit down restaurant where I could order some healthy food. 

It’s not difficult to stay on track when you’re away from home, but it does take some planning.  Always be prepared.
