Paleo Road Trip
Steve and Maria asked that I give some advice on what to pack to eat on during a road trip so you can still stay Paleo. (PS: thanks for the blog suggestion!)
Preparation is the key. Grab a cooler, prep some good food and you are set! I've posted a list of essentials below so you don't get stuck wandering the aisles of a conveience store or surrendering to Dairy Queen.
Good, clean protein sources are hard to find at conviences stores, so make sure to load up on these.
– High-quality deli meat – turkey/chicken/roast beef. Applegate Farms (available in Publix) has some good varieties, where the only ingredients are organic meat, water and salt.
– Albacore tuna (read the label)
– Hard boiled eggs.
– Smoked salmon. Wild-caught Alaskan (not farm-raised).
– Shrimp. Buy pre-cooked wild-caught shrimp (or cook and peel them yourself)
– Cooked chicken breast, cut into strips
– Jerky (again, read labels as most have lots of sodium, soy and sugar. Or make your own)
Stock up on fresh vegetables that you like to eat raw
– Sugar snap peas and snow peas
– Pepper slices (red, green, yellow and orange)
– Grape tomatoes
– Baby spinach, arugula or other leafy greens (for on-the-road salads)
– Jicama (peel and slice into thin strips)
– Kale chips. (available at health food stores- read labels; or make your own)
Choose whatever is fresh, local, in-season, staying away from sugary dried fruit, tropical fruits, bananas, etc.
Olives (read the label)
Shredded coconut, unsweetened.
Other nuts and seeds (in moderation)
Sunbutter or other nut butters (in moderation)
Olive oil (for salads)
Note: the above suggestions also work well if you are stumped at what to have on-hand at work for snacks.
Workout of the Day:
Five rounds for time of –
15 chest-to-bar pull-ups
200 m run
20 wall balls
