charli71170 Posted October 28, 2015 Share Posted October 28, 2015 I'm on Day 5 and have good success but I purposely chose a week when I would not travel and I have allowed myself to cut back on work and take naps when I need them. So far, so good. But let's be honest: I have no intention of packing a cutting board and paring knife on my next business trip. I am a frequent business traveler and I need the "real" good advice for how to approach this before my next trip in a week. Most major airports offer fresh veggies (limited, usually to carrots and cauliflower, not my favorite but okay) and some even have boiled eggs. Beyond that the salads usually look pretty unappetizing and without dressing they aren't that great. I've bought almond butter in travel packages and love it on apple slices. I also found snack packs of black olives. But what else can anyone recommend assuming a few recurring challenges for me: 1) I don't always get to pick the hotel where I stay and I sometimes end up in hotels with very limited menus or towns I like to refer to as "food deserts." 2) I cannot be that girl who opens a pack of tuna on a plane; even boiled eggs are pushing it for fellow passengers 3) No way I am trying to get coconut oil or ghee through security nor do I want to find it leaking in a checked-bag 4) I hate jerky 5) One of my worst eating habits before Whole30 was packaged granola/snack/protein bars, so I really hesitate to buy the Rx bars when I think that will just feed an old habit of mine. I'm just looking for the most honest account of how this works for the business traveler and specific suggestions for what to do and how to pack it.
