Touring Around Newfoundland w/Aunt Armorel (88 and still spunky as can be!)
We stayed really active this trip and I was able to throw in a few CrossFit workouts along the way. As far as eating is concerned, my only real "bad" eating/consumption was a few (yes...I really only had a few) beers, three ice cream cones, and a mug of hot cocoa (with a bunch of mini marshmallows). So, I feel really good after this trip! I made it a point to not eat any grains (with exception to the few beers), which I'm sure helped me.
With exception to our visit with Aunt Armorel, we ate out every day; I ordered burgers on several occasions (no bun) and ordered a side salad, sometimes in place of the fries, other times not. I ordered poached eggs for breakfast or found places that had prepackaged salads with grilled chicken and/or hard boiled eggs (no dressing or oil and vinegar). Protein seems to be pretty easy to come by, when traveling...veggies don't. I brought kale chips, made a point to eat a lot of salad, and we ordered steamed broccoli on a few occasions, but I felt like that was the hardest part for me...
What do you do to ensure that you're getting enough veggies while you travel?
