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:


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


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


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


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!!!


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?
