Eating while Travelling

I'm about to head to Portland for the first leg of my Washington DC Adventure. Thinking ahead, one of the things I'm the most anxious about is how I'm going to eat while I'm travelling. I've done a good job eating out and still following the Always Hungry plan, but now I'm going to be in airports and unfamiliar places, with meals provided for me, without a lot of say in them.

To stay on plan I'm going to:

  • Hold fast to my commitment to avoid added sugars, but recognize that some times minimal sugar might be the best I can do. 
  • Look for high protein options at every chance. Eggs, cheese, meats, nuts.
  • Bring dark chocolate with me, to satisfy any cravings or needs for a treat. 
  • Load up on veggies and fruits, ask for substitutions if needed.
  • Eat when I have the chance, don't wait if I don't have to. 
  • Make sure I'm fully caffeinated, don't skimp on the cream, but no sugar in my coffee. 
  • For this trip, don't let cost freak me out. I may pay more for premium food this weekend, and that's ok.  


  1. eating in airports is always a challenge :/

    1. I managed to do ok by sticking with fruit and cheese boxes and salads. They were really over priced, but fortunately the conference was paying for my food, so I didn't have to feel too bad about it!
