911!!!! Help me build my....

Wednesday, August 22, 2012


Emergency...this weekend, first thing on Friday morning, I'm headed to NEW ORLEANS, the Cuisine Capitol!!!! It's not going to be easy with so much amazing food and DRINKS readily available, but I CAN DO IT! I've been on SP for a few weeks now and know that planning and preparation, for me, is key! My splurge day is going to be Saturday night at dinner. There will be a lot of walking, activities, and the main event on Saturday.

The reason I'm in a pickle (oh, pickles might be an option) is bc I just found out the hotel we're staying in doesn't have a mini fridge or microwave as we originally thought. So I'm not able to bring anything that needs to be heated or refrigerated.

Nutshell(nuts...another option) I'm looking for suggestions for healthy snacks that are 150 calories or less, that travel and keep well, that are easy to prepare/ready to eat, and that are DELISH!!!!!

TYIA!!I'm sooo excited!!

    Well one thing I used on my last trip was a cooler with ice to help keep things fresh. I shopped once I got to the city. Not sure how you're travelling and if that's an option. Apples, bananas, dried fruits and nuts, pretzels, carrots,

    Lucky you! New Orleans is on my list.
How about Beef jerky, salami or pepperoni for a snack?
You can get little pots of soy dessert, that are low cal and don't need to be refrigerated.

Your blog is great by the way. Love all the pictures. I'm going to steal your idea for a rewards list.

Hope you have a great time :)

    Have a great time in New Orleans! I like the fruit, crackers, peanut butter and tuna ideas. Also, have salads in the restaurants with just oil & vinegar, along with grilled "bare" proteins.

    Some ideas may be peanut butter, whole wheat crackers, oranges, apples, apple sauce, and tuna.
