Tip Tuesday- On the Go! What to pack for a trip

When heading out for a trip sometimes it’s intimidating knowing what to bring with you. Here are some ideas that worked well for me.

I went out of town to run the Ragnar Key West in Florida and this is what I brought:

Breakfasts:

Plain Oatmeal Packets, Squeezable Applesauce, Stevia Packets, clementines

Hot cocoa measured out in baggies

Already made pumpkin and/or chocolate waffles – they had sugar free syrup at the hotel, but could bring some of your own- also look for boiled eggs or scrambled eggs and sausage or bacon if staying at a hotel

(it depends how much prep you want to do but I took waffles on a 4 day trip and ate them the whole time;)

Pre-made THM donuts, indiv plain greek yogurt cups w/ homemade granola

Snacks:

Nuts, cheese sticks, LC cheese and wasa crackers, re packaged veggies- green beans, carrots, celery, natural to go Pb, quest bars or Atkins for emergencies only, protein powder in baggies, small indiv. boxed almond milk,  beef jerky

Lunches:

Deli meat, low carb tortillas, humus on the go and pre packaged veggies, Greek Yogurt sweetened w/ TRUE lemon packets

Dinners:

If you eat out, order meat, veggies and creamy dressings- bunless burgers, steak, a salad w ranch, green beans w/ butter, fajitas with the works minus tortillas (unless you bring your own;)- you can do it!!!

Desserts:

Bring some on plan desserts too- and a stash of 85% dark chocolate;)

*It was easiest for me to stay in S mode for most of the trip except some E breakfasts and lunches when I ate clementines and my low carb wraps with LC cheese. But for snacks and dinners, I stayed in S mode;) I also allowed myself one cheat meal and it was fun! But because I planned for it, I didn’t go crazy and blow off the whole trip;)

What kinds of foods do you like to pack when you are going on vacation?
