So while traveling for the past 3 weeks, I had to get pretty creative with my paleo eating options. The challenge was actually pretty fun and I found some cool paleo products along the way.
Here are my top 5 favorite non-refrigerated paleo snacks/meals:
This breakfast bar is awesome and contains everything for a complete meal. These are great for deployments or long trips where you don’t have a refrigerator handy. The taste wasn’t as sweet as I thought it would be (why was I expecting maple syrup?!), but I think staying away from sweet tastes while traveling is a safe and smart idea so that you don’t run the risk of becoming sugar addicted, which is very easy to do when you are away from the comforts of home.
Now if you do want some sweetness and addiction in your life, then I suggest Paleonola. Be warned, I finished a bag in only a couple days….I think there were something like 10 servings in it. Oops. Separate your servings into baggies before your trip to avoid overindulgence.
3. Terra Taro Chips—Seriously the best in the world. Better than potato chips.
Unlike potato chips, these actually really fill me up, and don’t leave me hungry for more. I eat them with a Kombucha or some beef jerky and/or carrots and I am ready to go.
4. Tuna Pouches—Great for when you are in a protein pinch
I know, I know, stinky but SOOOOOO worth it. When you are traveling it’s easy to say fahgettah bout it to protein, but in order to be satiated you must include protein in every meal. These are super easy to rip open and eat as is, or bring along some lemon, or even one of those bottles of lemon juice, and hot sauce and you’re golden.
5. Last, but not least, beef protein powder—11 grams of protein per serving, and unflavored! Put it in your coffee!
Yeah….I put this in everything. It’s another great way to get in some protein and this time in a sneaky way. You can put it into anything. I wouldn’t let it sit too long because gelatin tends to coagulate.
