Traveling Healthy

As some of you already know, I spent last week in Coronado Bay, San Diego.  Oh my, was it incredible!!  I had a couple of truly, amazing days!  Between the beautiful weather, amazing hotel and a fun day at the San Diego Zoo, I was in heaven!  What made it even better, though, was I was able to travel, taking certain food items with me for emergencies, but not having to pack all of meals for the trip, and yet I was able to stick to my healthy lifestyle and eat my 6 meals throughout the day.

While I am technically “off season” right now, as I’ve said before, I am never really “off season”.  So, it is important for me to be able to maintain my diet wherever I may be.  Now don’t get me wrong, it was vacation, so you can be sure I saved my cheat day for my trip!  And if I wanted a little treat here or there, I certainly allowed myself.  But I try to live by a 90/10 rule.  90% of the time I was there I stuck to my plan and 10% of the time I let myself relax a bit.

I pre-made my protein pancakes and brought them along with dry oats for my breakfast each morning.  I made sure to bring my whey protein and shaker cup with me.  Always travel with your protein!  When in doubt, you can always replace a meal with a shake, so it’s a smart, convenient thing to have with you.  For lunch I would go order a nice piece of fish or chicken with my veggies, and if the portion was huge (which they always are), I split that into two meals.   Also, I made my way over to Whole Foods and picked up food to make meals to take with me to the zoo, so I wouldn’t be stuck having to eat in a place where I could almost bet would not offer too many healthy choices.  Whole Foods is great, even if you’re prepping for a show.  If you go to the meat or seafood counter, you can ask them to weigh your food and they will actually cook it for you, any way you’d like it.  These little tricks make traveling much less stressful for me!  Cooking and packing tons of food can be a daunting task, especially for a relaxing vacation.  It can also save you quite a bit of money as well!
