Road trip list

Permanent Linkby who me on Tue Feb 14, 2012 2:27 pm

much to my surprise people actually look at this dreck that I post here.
my list
Road trip list.
FOOD
cases of water
(Pack a frozen bottle of water. This will keep any perishable foods you've packed chilled for hours. )

trail mix

ice cooler

Pack a resealable bag with veggies and a resealable container with something to dip the veggies in. Celery and peanut butter or carrots and ranch dressing are two great tastes.

Power bars or breakfast bars pack well. They're not the perfect food, but if you choose bars with some fiber (at least 3 grams per bar) and protein (at least 5 grams per bar) but not too much sugar (less than 35% calories from fat) or fat, they aren't bad at all. You can find good choices among the following brands: Clif, Odwalla, Power Bar Harvest, and Luna.

for emergency's meal replacement shakes
Look for a shake with less added sugar (around 10-17 grams of sugars per 11-ounce can), and 3 or more grams of fiber, with around 10 grams of protein but not too much fat.
Freeze a can or two of your favourite flavor the night before you travel. Just before you leave, take the shake out of the freezer and slip it into your carry-on. In about four hours, it will be icy and refreshing. Bring a straw for easy sipping.

whole-grain crackers.

Oatmeal, cereal, musely, dried fruit,

applesauce

Bring an empty. The TSA will confiscate full water bottles, but not empty ones. Slip one into your bag, and fill it using the airport tap. Voila! $2 saved.

Carry snacks. packing your own bites will save big bucks, satisfy cravings, and keep the calorie count down.

Bring condiments from home. Staples like butter, olive oil, and mustard are often costlier than the main meals themselves. If you think you might only use a little of something, portion it out into Tupperware and throw it in the car.

A wrap (preferably sprouted, gluten-free, from frozen foods section)

Some tomatoes

Some avocadoes

Some dark leafy greens (in this case, mustard greens)

A cheese (I typically go for feta or goat)

A protein (in this case, sardines in olive oil)

A fat (in this case, organic peanut butter)

A cheat food so you don’t end up at the local ice cream shoppe (in this case, an 80% dark chocolate bar)

Fruit (pears are usually a good choice, and I eat these before or after my travel exercise sessions + banans for breakfast)

Coconut water (although if I were traveling for racing or working out heavily, I would instead choose coconut milk)

Sparkling water (satiates the appetite and keeps you from boredom eating when combined with gum)

Music
The Eternal Afflict - San Diego (The Tragical)
Jefferson aeroplane white rabbit
