Happy “Tasty Tuesday,” GymGeeks!
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m always on-the-go. Because of this, I plan at LEAST three meals ahead of the one that’s coming up. Perfect example: knowing I’d be on the road for at least three hours on the way back from Fort Lauderdale to Orlando, I had the perfect plan in place for my lunch, my mid-day snack and my dinner (knowing I had zero food in my fridge, so nothing could spoil while I was out of town).
For that reason, I actually took a long-winded route using the Florida Turnpike, since the choices at the service stations sure beat the hell out of pulling over at a random exit on I-95 and having the choice of McDonalds, Wendy’s, Burger King or all three at a truck stop. I was able to run in, grab a turkey wrap from the “healthy choices” kiosk, a bottle of water and get back on the road. Also, knowing that I’d be going shopping almost the recond I got back into town, I had one of my homemade protein bars ready so I wouldn’t shop hungry. This stopped me from taking advantage of the special on a whole turkey sub at the Publix deli and allowed for a more sensible dinner instead of carb loading.
With that in mind, the posts and tweets today will revolve around how to survive (nutritionally speaking) on-the-go or in a pinch for something to eat. I have a great recipe (if you want to call it that, since it’s so freakin’ simple) for your mornings, as well as how to survive a vacation. Having spent the last few days down in South Florida catching a Miami Marlins game, going out to dinner with my parents (not to mention dinner on Friday with my brother & sister), I know I was able to avoid some pitfalls, so I want to share that knowledge with my GymGeeks.
Hope everyone had a great weekend…now let’s get back to work!
