Ideas of how to prepare for the weekend?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 10, 2012 at 3:57 PM

Going out of town for the weekend, will be busy running around, and may not have access to cooking much, if at all. I'm taking a 3 hour bus ride to get there/back.

Any suggestions on how I can primal-y prepare (keeping fat loss in mind)? Thanks!

Indeed, and veggie oils. As always, you have to read ingredients. FWIW, the tiny amounts in those are probably 80/20 safe especially when convenience is the driving factor.

Check on those pouches though. At least some of the Starkist tuna ones contain soy.

I would bring fruit (maybe really ripe bananas and oranges so they don't get squished) and a bag of coconut flakes mixed with cacao nibs (so delicious and not full of omega-6s). In addition, canned salmon is delicious and can easily be brought along. I don't know if you can bring with some silverware, but maybe pack some hard avocados (or pre-make yours with really hard avocados and sprinkle with lime so they don't ripen quickly).

Hard-boiled eggs will last you the first day and a half too and are yummy.

Oh and you can bring some pre-cut and washed packages of veggies to snack on plain: cauliflower, broccoli, carrots...etc.

Hope that helps!

Sounds like an ultimate intermittent-fasting window!

Barring that, salads, jerkey, hard cheeses (if tolerated), fruit, those salmon fillets (in a pouch) or canned salmon; you can get canned/pouched chicken too. None of that needs refrigeration, is easy to carry, and needs no/few prep tools.

I'd like to second everyone's suggestions and also add:

  • home made trail mix. One of my favorites is raw cashews, raw pumpkin seeds, dried berries (find ones without added sugar), and chunks of unsweetened baking chocolate (with lots of cocoa butter, if you like a smoother chocolate).

  • Scottish eggs. Hard-boiled eggs, wrapped in meat (ground beef or sausage work best), baked. Still very tasty cold.

  • home made protein bars - coconut flour, coconut flakes, almond or macadamia butter, unsweet chocolate chips if desired. Work in to a dough a shape into bars or balls.

I travel a fair amount, and here are some of the things I take with me, depending no the duration of the trip (and not necessarily all at once).

  1. zip lock bags with individually portioned servings of protein powder
  2. pop-top cans of tuna and salmon
  3. a zip lock bag of nuts
  4. zip lock bags with raw veggies- celery, carrots, broccoli, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc.
  5. grilled chicken wrapped in aluminum foil (if it's less than a day, toss in 1/4-1/2 of an avocado for each chicken breast).
  6. fruit (apples are easiest)
  7. 6oz cups of Greek yogurt
  8. bottled water
  9. beef/turkey/ostrich jerky

I find it relatively easy to paleo/primalize most dishes wherever I am. Most appetizers (think seafood) are diet friendly, and can always get a salad as the main course and ask for whatever modifications or just eat around the stuff you don't want (i.e. crutons).

Hope that gives you some ideas.

My daughter took my coconut oil to camp with her. I also would take some good quality canned sardines & nuts.
