Portable Low Carb Meals

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created September 18, 2012 at 10:39 PM

So I play club soccer in college and we play tournaments on the weekends to get our games in. I also eat all my carbs at night in a Kiefer, Clifton Harski, carb-backloading type diet. So far this type of diet has been very easy and effective for me to follow. However, on the weekends when we have away tournaments, we usually end up at a McDonalds or gas stations to grab a quick bite to eat between games, which makes it impossible to stay paleo and low carb.

Are there any paleo, low carb meals that I could pack on a Friday that would stay edible all the way through Sunday?

Hey man you could always order two double cheese burgers, no cheese, no bun. ($1 FTW) Throw that on top of a salad, no dressing. Then pick your poison: ketchup or mayo. Mustard might be a safe choice.

I second this. Cook it crispy though or you'll end up with soggy meat. No one likes soggy meat.

I've done this.. you have to cook it crispy though (IMO) or you'll end up with soggy meat. No one likes soggy meat.

Do it, I bought WAY too much pemmican for a five-day expedition race earlier this summer.. wish I could sell you some. Hard to eat when there is steak and bacon laying around.

Hardboiled eggs will keep without refrigeration in moderate temperatures.

I looked this up, that looks, sounds and hopefully tastes like a winner.

Hardboiled eggs if you have a fridge or a cooler. Jerky and pemmican are great too and don't require refrigeration.You could also take nuts, nut butters, kale chips (if you make ahead), and sardines.

Dried fruit, pemmican, jerky, dried veggies, nut butters, and nuts are all options.

Dried fruit is typically high in carbs, but can be used for the backloading you described.

I would advise against the dressing. If you get a salad opt for oil and vinegar. The dressings at McD most likely have high fructose corn syrup and other undesirable ingredients. An even better choice would be to home make some paleo dressing before you leave and use it on your salad.

Another good snack is coconut chips but I wouldn't make a meal out of them. If you're at McD's I usually get 3 side salads with Caesar dressing.

Pemmican is good. However, when I want something easier to obtain and prepare than pemmican, I like to cook up a bunch of bacon .. retaining as much of the fat as possible. You can pack and eat cooked bacon almost just like beef jerky.
