I traveled 3 weeks between Jan and Feb (London, Rome and India) & I desperately needed to reset sleep and food. We have a family ski vacation this week so I almost didn’t sign up for PN20 but then thought, this is my life, the travel is here to stay, so I need to make it work. So I signed up for PN20 and was sort of excited for the challenge to start when I wasn’t home with access to all the foods I would need.. My first step was to start with some prep on Saturday – using the PN shopping list and brands we like list. Sharing ideas below –
Please send any tips on how you make travel work for you!
I brought Trader Joes Unsweetened Instant Oatmeal – whole grains, quinoa and amaranth with flax and chia seeds (gluten free). Add almond butter and fruit.
Ezekiel bread (not gluten free but better than nothing) – and three toppings to mix it up – avocado// hard boiled eggs// almond butter with chia seeds.
For lunch and snacks,
–Pre cooked quinoa, Sweet potatoes with black beans and avocado. Also brought some eggplant hummus. Lots of veggies like celery, carrots, grape tomatoes, spinach. Apples, bananas. Also, dried fruit and almonds. Rx bars – Blueberry flavor.

Dinners -made ahead
— Turkey chili with all PN friendly ingredients, avoid the bread and butter !
–Flu flighter chicken stew (Run Fast. Cook fast. Eat Slow recipe)
–At the lodge there is a chicken, salmon and black bean burger – can order this with no bun, dairy
Foods I’m avoiding – pita crackers and cheese, potato chips, mint milano cookies, baugette bread with butter, regular whole wheat bread, and salami. Trader joes dark chocolate peanut butter cups. This food is not usually allowed at home, but it’s a ski vacation, so the rules are flexible to eat “party food”.
