I'm a teen who's been paleo-ish for nearly a year now. In a few days, I'll be leaving for a bus tour with my parents (I'm the only one who's paleo). We'll be flying to a hotel before the bus part, but I can bring some boiled eggs since the flight is only a few hours. The problem is, I don't know what to eat for the rest of the vacation. We'll be in a tour group and everything, so there won't be any time to cook and we'll be either on a bus or outside the whole day. We don't have enough luggage space to bring canned foods. From my past experiences, these buses tend to stop at places such as McDonald's as opposed to the restaurants with steak/seafood... any suggestions?

If you have been paleo for a year, you should have a pretty good idea what to eat and not eat. Sometimes that means picking the lesser of two evils. Go with salads, meats, avoid breads and things that are fried. Be creative. Plus the occasional bad food won't kill you.

I know you said that there isn't room for canned goods but what about nuts? I had a similar fear but ended up making it through about 80% paleo. McDonalds or other fast food places sometimes serve their breakfast menus all day - you could get an egg/bacon sandwich and not eat the bread, or fruit. A lot of places are switching to healthier side options so fruit may be more readily available than you imagine. Get a dry hamburger and don't eat the bun, I think it will be more doable than you imagine. Obviously the meat won't be grassfed but staying away from gluten and grains is becoming easier than some people imagine. Dairy and soy will be harder to avoid but I say just give it your best shot, drink A LOT of water and don't beat yourself up if you have to eat something totally un-paleo. Good luck!
