Eating on The Road
I spend about 50% of my life on the road for work; which means I spend A LOT of time in Airplanes, Airports and Hotels. Over the years I have had to figure out how how to “eat well” on the road, when options might be limited. I know a lot of you guys also travel for work and I often am asked if I have suggestions on good travel snacks. Pictured above are just a few of my on the road staples! Now, these snacks do not replace real food, but sometimes you have to just do the best you can. These snacks also work well if you have a busy day at work or tend to be on the go a lot! Share your favorite snacks with our community on Instagram, using #CrossFitBelltown
Real Sticks: Beef or Turkey sticks which are a good source of protein in a pinch.
Tanka Bars: Buffalo Meat with dried fruit and spices
Progenex Recovery: Protein Powder, this has saved me when the only options around were carbs and I wanted to keep my Protein, Carbs and Fat balanced.
RX Bars: Evening sweet treat for me. It’s got Protein, Carbs and Fat but it is higher in Carbs.
Perfect Foods Bar: Good amount of Carbs and Fat, little lower in Protein but it works in a pinch.
Justin’s Almond Butter: These things are a lifesaver! It’s unbelievable easy to find Carbohydrates in an airport, but a bit more difficult to find fats.
Peter Rabbit Baby Food: Yep, that’s baby food! It’s simple, clean and a good source of carbohydrates when on the go. I often pack a frittata or grilled chicken to eat with one of these squeeze packs.
Fuel for Fire: These things are amazing. They are similar to the baby food but also have 10g of Protein. Look for these next week in the gym.
Once you have figured out a few staples you like, it becomes much easier to try to manage eating clean on the road. The next step is to make sure your macronutrients are balanced (Protein, Carbs and Fat). Carry a few snacks from each macronutrient category and mix and match as you please.
