Favorite Paleo and Whole 30 Travel/On-the-Go Items

I travel quite a bit this time of year for work and, let’s face it, airports and unfamiliar cities sometimes make it hard to find good choices. I’m actually heading to Nashville today for the week, so I thought I’d pull together some of my favorite Paleo and Whole 30 compliant “on-the-go” items that make travel less stressful.

20 Minutes of Movement

My company manages trade and professional nonprofit associations. We do everything for them: finances, membership, governance, strategic planning, websites, meeting planning, etc. This includes frequent travel, especially for each associations’ annual meeting. These trips are typically week-long and each day starts for us around 6:30 or 7:00am (meaning we are up, ready and running the show) and ends anywhere between 10:00pm-12:00am, depending on the days’ events.

This schedule doesn’t leave a ton of room to squeeze in a full workout, but I do like to get in at least 20 minutes of purposeful movement in my hotel room before I get ready for the day.

My colleague recently asked me to send her a few workouts like this that she can do while she is traveling this week, so I thought I would share them here.

Each of these body weight workouts should take about 15-20 minutes and requires no equipment whatsoever. I’ve linked some YouTube videos for each of the movements below in case you are unfamiliar.

What I ate in… Ft Lauderdale, FL

I travel frequently for work, so I thought it would be fun to do some “What I ate in….” type posts. I think these types of posts will be helpful for two reasons: one, to give you some good food recommendations if you happen to be traveling to these cities and two, to show how easy it is to eat well and make some modifications while dining out or traveling.

Unfortunately, for this time around, I thought of the idea for the post after the fact, so I don’t have many pictures. Hopefully the descriptions do it justice – I ate very well there!
