5 Ways To Eat Grain Free On The Go!

If you’re like the majority of people, you’re always out and about running errands, commuting to work, taking the kids to practice, getting groceries, etc. Such a hectic schedule lends itself to crappy eating, and possibly sabotaging your new lifestyle completely.

I don’t want this to happen to you.  Some people never get back on track. Therefore, I want to provide you with the tips and tricks I have learned for keeping up with a Grain-Free lifestyle in the midst of a busy life.

5 Ways To Eat Grain Free On The Go!

Always, always, always keep Grain-Free friendly snacks in the car or in your purse.  I recommend things like a bag of nuts or seeds, Lara Bars, prechopped vegetables and fruit salad.

If you don’t have anything on you at the time the hunger hits, you can visit a grocery store with a fresh foods section (Hello, Whole Foods), and grab a healthy salad, a bag of trail mix, etc.

If you forgot to bring snacks with you and you cannot make it to a grocery store, you can visit a fast-food restaurant if you need to. If you must do this, order a salad with just veggies, protein and a healthy fat (if they have it). For example, you could order a side salad from Wendy’s and a grilled chicken sandwich without the bun or sauce. At Subway, you can order a salad with protein and a side of avocado. I recommend skipping the dressing at fast food restaurants, or asking for olive oil, apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.

For sit-down restaurants, what you order will depend on what type of restaurant you’re visiting. Here are some examples of meals:

  • Bar & Grille: a turkey burger without the bun or sauce and a side salad with boiled eggs and no premade dressing; a chicken sandwich without the bun or sauce with a baked sweet potato with coconut oil on the side; or, just a healthy salad loaded with veggies is great too.
  • Breakfast joints: Eggs, eggs and more eggs with some veggies; a large fruit cup would be a nice snack
  • Chinese: Grilled veggies and seafood/veggie combos
  • Mexican: Naked beef or chicken fajitas, loaded with veggies and a side of guacamole
  • Italian: Stick with a bare salad with your choice of protein on top
  • Steakhouses: Fill up on the steak and veggies and a sweet potato; if you’re feeling dessert, opt for a fruit cup
  • Deli: Any type of salad with protein; a protein-filled lettuce wrap

If you’re searching for snacks for your busy life, here are some of my favorites

 

Finally, I just want to mention – it’s so important not to over-complicate this lifestyle. If you do this, you will stress yourself out and will take the enjoyment of the process of becoming healthier.  It’s a process so just do your best with it and remember – every little step in the right direction, no matter how small, is still a step towards optimal health and your best self.
