2 month vacation concerns and ideas for continuing to eat healthfully

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Im hoping to take a train tour out West next month. Also will be eating with others a lot. So, obviously my main concern is how to maintain my healthy diet.
Im thinking that At others homes, I can eat more of their veggies, and less of their grains and animal products, and see if they want me to cook also.
Other possibilities are that I can just eat smaller portions, taking time to really savor the flavor, and-and this is a difficult and for me- I can not accept offers to have my favorite American foods bought for me to enjoy. (pizza, rich ice creams, all you can eat restarants, etc)
On the train. Im thinking that I can bring my own protein source...example jerkey and canned tuna, and fruits and veggies that dont need cooking.
Any other suggestions?

P.S. Ill let you know how I did un December. emoticon

    Nuts is a good protein source to take along too, plus dried fruit. Thing is, you MUST enjoy yourself, AND do your best not to OVERDO the eating side. Drinking loads of water will stop you being hungry and keep you hydrated too. We just recently had the ROVOS train come through our town. I got to chat to some of the folks doing that train tour.....sounds like a fantastic and relaxed way to holiday.

    That sounds like an amazing journey!

You have great ideas. Personally, I'm all about portion control so I don't feel deprived of my favorite foods. If others are eating a huge pizza, I'm totally comfortable having ONE slice and a big ol' salad to go with it. Bringing healthy foods is also a great idea -- dried fruit is healthy in small amounts, bars, kale chips, etc. Have an amazing trip!!
