On the road...

So tonight little Miss Finley and I are hitting the road to meet up with my husband and his team here. Each year we like to support my husband's track team by cheering on the athletes at nationals. Unfortunately, the food situation is a little bit unknown. I'm not quite sure if there is breakfast at the hotel, I'm on my own for lunches but I go out to eat with the team for dinner.

So the last couple of weeks I've been super diligent with watching what I eat. It may sound crazy, but I took a DNA test which indicates what type of meal plan you should be following to most accurately fuel your body. My DNA came back as 45% carbohydrates, 35% fat and 20% protein. This has been a HUGE adjustment for me as I probably usually eat 60-70% carbs and not enough protein or fat. So I've been working on trying to get my proportion of intake in the right categories. I'm also teaching a weight management class based off of this DNA test so I feel like I have to be compliant so I can practice what I preach ;) Ugh, it's hard....

Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what to pack with me that can fill in in a pinch if I can't find the best choices at restaurants or in the hotel. Here's what I've come up with so far.

String Cheese


These protein shakes

Peanut butter

La Tortilla Factory tortillas


(Obviously to make the perfect banana/peanutbutter roll up!)

What suggestions do you have to pack on the road?


  1. Happy road tripping! I hope Finley is a better traveler than Owen:)

    I'm glad you liked the Chicken Tenders! Yours look yummy too!

  2. I want to hear more about this test?? I have never heard of something like this and I want to do it! I love all your road trip snacks. They are pretty much all my favorites!!
    I love that you did the president's day circuit this morning! How did it go??
