Day 18 Traveling

I have many students who travel frequently, so today, I'm sharing some ideas that I provide them for traveling.

Packing for your trip:
·         Portable foldable insulated bag – in case your hotel does not have a fridge
·         Baggies of nuts, vitamins, protein powder etc.
·         Small George Forman Grill (optional – going the distance!)
·         Oatmeal single packets (if no microwave – you can run hot water through the coffee maker! )
·         Plastic forks, plates
·         Cans of tuna, chicken
·         Request hotels with microwaves and small fridges

Upon Arrival:
·         Go to a local grocery store!  If you can’t or don’t want to pack some of the above items, make it a priority to head to the grocery store upon arrival.
·         Purchase
o   Pre-made chicken, tuna and boiled eggs
o   Oatmeal
o   Protein powder
o   Milk
o   Pre-made veggies and salads
o   Nuts and sprouted bread
o   Hummus and veggies for snack
o   Light popcorn – if you have access to a microwave

·         Don’t be afraid to ASK!!!  If your room doesn’t have a microwave – maybe they have a room where they provide continental breakfast – usually a microwave can be found in there – or if there is a restaurant – ask to use theirs!

·         If no fridge – you have your portable insulated bag – grab some ice from down the hall and bam!  Refrigerator issue solved!

·         If you are going to be in meetings all day – pack your food and take it with you!  You never know what food options will be provided - so be prepared!

Going Strong....ALL DAY LONG!
