Thanks for all these great ideas. I'm way under my protein and calorie counts for the day so far, but am limited to the amount of starches I should eat. These are fantastic things to add so I can snack my way to my goals.

I needed to add more protein to my daily goals and did this by eating the whites only of boiled eggs.

MMM the celery and peanut butter sounds really good right now. I think I will go make some for my daycare kids for their snack. Thanks for the great idea.

Most likely the most effective protein source are the chicken eggs. These proteins included in eggs are certainly useful mainly because they are members of the group of complete proteins. These proteins within eggs are consequently broken into aminos. That egg yolk is usually quite beneficial mainly because of the proteins, saturated fats as well as good cholesterol contained in it. We think you really don’t need to have any specific recipes concerning how to prepare eggs, simply because everyone is able to make some kind of omelet or perhaps to boil eggs.

Healthy protein drinks, or even well-liked smoothies, are really a very simple blend of various nuts, some fruits as well as milk. Serious weightlifters primarily like drinks which is a tremendous help in the bodybuilding procedure, plus it enhances the function of our own digestive system. Shakes can increase our metabolic processes and allow us to lose body fat faster and easier.

In addition there are various other food items, that can help you begin your entire day in a fantastic way, to illustrate, grape fruit or simply orange juice. They are simply full of nutritional vitamins, minerals as well as health proteins too. Alternatively, you are able to take in milk each morning which we strongly suggest for those who don’t have problems with lactose intolerance.

There is certainly one important thing you need to keep away from,list of high protein foods and that is certainly to start out the day with a coffee. It usually is much better to have a full cup of fresh squeezed juices. Additionally it is a bad idea to avoid your own breakfast simply because you could really feel worn out and sleepy. To prevent this, normally try and have a nutritious morning meal.<

Well, I hope Pescadorian had a wonderful roadtrip!

Something else that would work well (since you have refrigeration/ a cooler) is smoked turkey breast chunks. My husband has become addicted to Dickey's BBQ smoked turkey, sold by the pound.

It is very moist and a great finger food! emoticon

Salt and vinegar pork rinds
diet jello pudding mixed with whey protein (not a finger food but still good)
Premium nuts w/o peanuts
slim jims (not the healthiest but it fits the bill)

I love peanut butter on celery.
String cheese.
I do meat wraps, using lettuce for outside.
How about kale chips??

I was on the road the other day and saw a snack package being sold at a rest stop of hummus with pretzels. I imagine hummus with celery would be pretty good too!

Wow! I never thought of chopping up pork roast for a snack that sounds delicious. Great idea!

I buy chocolate cheerios and put a cup into a baggie. They are sweet and only are around 100 calories so I eat them one at a time when I want a sweet treat when driving.

I love chèvre (goat cheese) and Almondina or Ak-Mok crackers. If you live by a Trader Joe's, they carry individual portions of chèvre called "Goat Cheese Medallions."

Just alternate nibbling on each so you don't have to use a knife. emoticon

For lower carb, you could use celery, bok choy, bell peppers, etc. emoticon

M_SGirl: I love your suggestions. The cinnamon sugar white pepper nut idea sounds intriguing. What nuts do you use and what quantities of the spices do you add? For most of our trips, it is just us two, but once in awhile we have the grandkids along and your observations about everything being more fun on a stick reminded me of how much I forget to think about with them! Awesome.

Prepackaged (for calorie count) single servings of nuts. Try toasting in different spices and salts so that you don't get bored or start chowing them down. I do a cinnamon sugar white pepper nut that can tide the 21 year old over on long trips in between breakfast and lunch, for example.

Cheese sticks are always good.

Give making your own jerky a shot. Turkey is as good as beef...low, long heat and a variety of spices and - again - prepackage into single servings.

I like to roast a pork tenderloin before trips. Cubed it becomes a "popable" snack that the kids love, high in protein and good for them. Or put on skewers with fruit because ANYTHING is more fun on a stick.

Try your own jelly rolls with protein powder. A little something for the sweet tooth will make you feel less deprived.

(Can you tell we do a LOT of road trips??)

How about chicken fingers. They can be cooked at home and kept cool. Also, they can be eaten with fingers without too much of a mess.
This is how I make them as an appetizer:
Cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts into strips. Put in a kettle with a little water at the bottom. Sprinkle in some good seasons Italian dressing (the packages) Braise them slowly until done. Cool and put in baggies. Happy travels!!

We love to take road trips and have one coming up at the end of the month. The doctor has my hubby on low carbs, low cal, high protein (funny, this is what works best for me too ... how convenient to "blame" my husband's doctor! LOL) and variety can be challenging. Now, I am facing how to plan for the road trip so we don't have to go into fast food and restaurants. We have the ability to keep things cold over long periods of time, but heating things up is a problem. So! I need the wisdom of the group! Help me come up with some portable finger foods that we can tote along in the car for several days, refrigerated or not. Who can help?
