I am new to the paleo lifestyle, and I travel a lot for work, in fact, I'll be on the road the next three months. I have researched tons a snack ideas as I'll be travelling by car. My question is how cook and eat a balanced paleo diet. I plan on bringing an electric steamer with me to cook meals in the hotel. I am looking for recipie suggestions so I don't tend to eat the same thing, but also other creative tips for hotel eating, all while maintaining paleo balance. I was thinking of bringing my small drink blender for green smoothies and such, any tips/suggestions/no-no's here? Any thoughts, tips, discussions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You're fortunate. All of my travel is by air which really limits what I can bring. So I basically eat as best I can in restaurants.

I'm not doing this myself so better answers then mine will probably follow... What i"d do:

Get: - a slowcooker - a unit to freeze / cool prepared and unprepared food in - a simple array of acids and herbs - a big tub of coconut oil

Make it simple. Just create slow cooker recipes that sit in your hotel room all day. You could also do this in your car probably but I'm not the expert on how to wire this.

On creative hotel living: when you eat out, just omit the carbohydrates, sneaky sauces and things you know that don't go optimal with you.

They tend to be kind of pricey, but you could invest in a thermal cooker/vacuum flask. Here's a good run down on what's up with those: textarealink texttextarea

Basically just a giant sized thermos with a removable pot (sometimes multiple). I personally have no experience with them (although I do plan on getting one sometime in the future, also for travelling purposes), but these seem like they'd be great for paleo nomads. All else you'd need would be a camp stove (propane/isobutane/alchohol/woodgas etc...), a hot plate, or hell you could even boil water in hotel coffee machines and pour that in. This way, you could still be cooking steamy pots of healthy meat/vegetables even while in transit! One could even conceivably simmer bone stocks/broths this way for days on end if you reheated the pot insert however often would be necessary... I've been fantasizing about these things for a while now, in case you couldn't tell hahaha good luck!

Make friends with the kettle. You can cook eggs and veggies in it!

When I'm travelling a lot I eat a lot of cold cooked meats from the Supermarket with salads.

Great salad - leaves - boiled egg - 1/2 avocado - cherry tomatoes - asparagus tips - nuts - goji berries - mixed seeds - olive oil - coconut flakes - cold meat or fish

If you've got at steamer, then you can make steamed salmon, which is fab

It's possible to be paleo, but will be pretty boring!
