I’m in Germany now, but before I left, I prepped a ton of food. I’ve traveled for years as a consultant all over the world and used to prepping meals and snacks before a trip. I know when I get home I’m gonna be dead tired recovering from jet lag and the long travel. The last thing I’ll want to do is cook.
The first thing I’ll wanna do is hit the trails then go back to bed. I mean a girl has to have her priorities! At some point I’ll actually wanna eat though even if it is at 2am. The reality is I live alone so unless a magic fairy cooks and shops for me while I’m gone, I need to have a few things prepped in advance so I don’t starve and live off almond butter. P.S. I’ve tried the fairy wish before. It never works. 🙁
So here’s a look at what I prepped before I left the country to give you some travel prep inspiration!
I was going to make these bites, but I was out of one ingredient so I made these no bake chocolate almond bites instead. I’m so glad I did too. I haven’t made them in forever. I forgot how delicious they are!
These no bake bars blow my mind. They’re packed with super food and flavor. I’ve yet to make any other bar like it. They’re perfection. Can’t wait to share the recipe with you!
A new creation with brown rice & turkey & my favorite veggie. I’ll give you a hint it’s my favorite veggie.
I pre-portioned the casserole in individual tupperware so they’re grab ‘n’ go ready!
Sliced Zucchini & Strawberries
I bought fresh produce, cleaned, chopped & stored in the freezer for ease use when I get back.
This is new recipe. I love the citrus in them. Perfect and light for spring!
Flourless PB&J Apple Muffins, Blueberry Hemp Flax Muffins & Quinoa Chia Muffins
And just in case there isn’t enough muffins, I always have these freezer remnants to fall back on!
It’s entirely possible to meal prep before travel. With a little thought and coordination, it can happen! It makes it so much easier to stick to your health and fitness goals too when you do.
