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.

Protein
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)

Vegetables
Stock up on fresh vegetables that you like to eat raw
– Carrots
– Celery
– Cucumber
– 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)

Fruit
Choose whatever is fresh, local, in-season, staying away from sugary dried fruit, tropical fruits, bananas, etc.

Fat
Olives (read the label)
Avocado/Guacamole
Shredded coconut, unsweetened.
Coconut butter
Macadamia nuts
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.

    Mmmm my mouth is watering as I spend another week eating hotel food. One day I’m gonna eat 100% paleo for like 3 mos or maybe even a year. Christina and I travel a good bit and have completely enjoyed stocking a paleo cooler. She just realized it has been maybe 2 years since we’ve been to a DQ which was previously a road trip tradition. I don’t miss it.
