one thing that many struggle with is how to eat nourishing while on the go, road trips, etc.
air travel and going internationally always seems more overwhelming for most. actually, internationally it is very easy to eat paleo and real food (i guess this depends on your restaurant and location choices) but i've always found it doable.
focusing here for long plane rides, i pack ALOT of snacks and foods that have served me and my kids well. here are just some tips:
*photos are taken with iPhone, so not the best resolution at times*
1. protein is your best friend. i pack a variety of room temp stable proteins. my favorites have been coconut butter (my oldest calls this white chocolate) varieties (i have a blog post on that here),
good examples are canned olive oil sardines, grilled salmon, anchovies, grass fed beef jerky, epic bars, "jello" gelatin squares, boiled eggs, burgers, and chicken wings. ( I prep the burgers and chicken night before and have it packed and ready to go)
2. fruit snacks work on the go.
i usually stay away from dried fruit or pureed fruit snacks and bars - just because it's dates and fruit, the sugar content on these things can be a whopping 24g per serving (!) so it does wire some kids up. since its a long flight and they deserve a treat, and options are small i pack what i can.
since we don't eat any of the meals on the plane, these sustain us, most of the flights i go on are around 20+ hours so i'm sure these suggestions are more than enough to sustain even short cross country flights.
would love to hear how you find ways to nourish yourselves and your kids on the go.
