The Travel Diet

Quick & Easy Meals for Staying Fit on the Road

Travel can put inches on your waistline if you are not prepared with the proper meal plan. When we travel without meals and snacks, we eat what is convenient when it is convenient— a recipe for disaster. Here are some meals that are easily consumed on-the-go when prepared ahead of time.

Shredded chicken, whole-wheat pasta, peas

Cook chicken breast in a crock pot for 8 hours, adding whatever seasoning you want.

• Let chicken cool

• Measure out portions

• Add cooked pasta and peas

• Put in a Ziploc baggie or Tupperware container

• Place in freezer

The Travel DietOatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Bread

1/3 cup of oats

1 tbsp of flax seeds

1/2 cup of egg whites

1/2 scoop protein powder

10 raisins

1 tbsp cinnamon


• Preheat oven to 350 degrees

• Mix all ingredients (add a bit of water if needed)

• Place aluminum foil in a bread pan

• Spray really well with olive oil

• Bake 10-15 minutes

• Wrap in foil then place in a Ziploc baggie

• Keep refrigerated

Note: you can double the recipe and cut the bread in half for two servings

Low-sodium Albacore Tuna Wrap

In a low-carb wrap add:

• 2 tbsp hummus

• Spinach

• Red pepper slices

• Roll in a paper towel, then in foil

• When you are ready to eat, add your packaged tuna in the wrap (don’t do this ahead unless you are eating that day or it will get soggy)

The Travel Diet

Mix it Up Mexican Beef

• Cook extra-lean hamburger Mexican-style by adding Mrs. Dash chipotle or 1 tbsp of low-sodium taco mix

• Cook black or brown rice

• Chop up onions and peppers and stir fry with 1 tbsp of olive oil and add Mrs. Dash chipotle

• Measure out all portions and mix it up

• Put in a Ziploc baggie or Tupperware container

• Place in freezer

Protein Pudding with Rice Cake

• 1.5 scoop of your favorite protein powder (choose one that mixes thick)

• Add 1/4-1/2 cup of water

• Stir to make into a pudding

• Spread over a rice cake

If you have access to a microwave, add asparagus to this meal by putting them in a Ziploc steam bag and then microwave when ready.

I like to place frozen foods in a small baggie, then take a larger baggie and label it what day it is for. For example, the baggie labeled Monday will have one of each meal. That way, you can grab one large baggie, put it in your cooler and go for the day. Don’t forget your utensils, paper towels and a Tupperware bowl to eat out of! If you are somewhere and you cannot get an ice pack, take two durable baggies, put ice in one and then double bag with the other. This is good if you are in a hotel without a fridge. One last note— ice packs are not TSA approved but frozen food is, so freeze it and it will be fine up to 8 hours.

Happy Travels!
