The Sprout Restaurant Review – and a cute love note story
Now onto food!!
I knew we’d be spending lots of time travelling, as well as the last time we were here, my eating wasn’t the healthiest, due to eating out at restaurants and at friends/family places.
So I knew I needed a game plan!!
This was my first big trip since having my dairy allergy, as well as I have been eating super healthy for the past few months, so I knew I had to keep my diet as close to possible, to avoid stomach troubles…
I was super excited a few days before I left Vega came out with a new product… I ran out and bought it a few hours before leaving!
Shake and Go Smoothie – this stuff is fantastic!! As long as you have a cup, water and this stuff you are set. Put in 2 TBSP, with water shake and you have yourself a nutritional jam packed smoothie!
I won’t be leaving without this stuff on a trip again, so easy. It also helped me not go out for breakfast every morning when we were at the hotel.
Since I’ve been at D. parents place, I also made a GM with this – 1 banana, strawberries, spinach, water and 1 scoop of this stuff. Such a great smoothie!
The second thing that saved me was this… Chia Goodness!!
When Jason at Global Health sent me this stuff, I knew it would be perfect for this trip as well. Again all you need is water, a cup and this… let is sit for a few mins and you get a chia seedy fabulous breakfast!! Best of all it’s GLUETEN free and VEGAN! I will be buying this product again, it’s quick and easy and as the one above perfect for travelling.
The taste is chocolately and it has chunks of dates in it, that are so good!!
Another thing was, when we found a good restarant we went back a few times… especially since I got so much fruit (that I kept for a snack later)
My breakfast – mmmmmm I love lox!!
My left overs for later!!
Another thing we did as soon as we got there was head to Costco and a grocery store!! At costco I picked up the best travelling companions a girl could ask for…
Mini – 100 calorie hummus containers – the package came with 12 for about $6 – so it’s perfect.
The hummus is no Sabre – but it’s good enough that I will buy again!!
I also brought a container of Earth Balance butter, and small tetra packs of rice milk…. I’ve also been subbing salad for French fries in the restaurants, drinking lots of water and tea (ginger and peppermint) … and so far so good… my stomach is doing alright!!
Do you eat healthy when you are travelling? If so, what are your tricks of the trade??
Stay tuned in the next few days for a guest poster’s trips on how to travel healthy!!
Have a great day!
