I thought I'd give a glimpse of what a travel meal prep looks like for me. Of recent I have still been prepping when I plan to be out of town because I invested in this Isobag Meal Prep Bag that is super travel friendly and fits at least 6 meals. I typically will travel with breakfast, lunch, and a few snack options, then be a normal person and enjoy dinner with the people I am with, whatever that might be. I know to majority of people that sounds ridiculous, but I'm ok with it haha. How many meals can you go out to eat for in a week and stick to choosing the best option possible to stay on track with your health and fitness goals? Probably not many before you start caving into the tastier options. At least I know I would fall into that category. Bringing about 80% of my daily food allows me to be on track for majority of my time away from home. I have only one meal a day where I need to choose the best option, which makes it a lot easier to actually choose something healthier. Also, if I decide to go for something a little tastier and off track, I don't feel bad about it because I know that 80% of my day was on track. Honestly though, staying on track for majority of my day only sets me up for continuing to choose the better options for the remainder of the day. Anyways, that is just my thought process and reasoning for why traveling with my meal prep works for me. I don't do this every time, but when I can this is the best way to help me stay on track while away. This week I prepped the Buffalo Chicken and Carrot Slaw meal because I can eat it cold while out on the beach and always throw together some fresh carrot slaw or just eat it with some baby carrots. The second meal is the Sweet Potato Turkey Burgers I made a few weeks ago because they were absolutely delicious and quick and easy to prepare and grill. To pair with the burgers I made a sweet potato cauliflower mash because that was also super quick and easy to prepare, and just really yummy. (Those meals are all clickable if you want the recipes.) Anyways, I have a ton of other travel tips to help stay on track, so if you ever need advice feel free to reach out!
