I have posted 3 recipes on Pinterest and Facebook for easy AIP recipes, but not good for travel! Well I think the muffins would have travelled better.... maybe. So what did I take? Here is my list:
Packages of Nut Butters - mostly Peanut Butter (not Paleo - it's ok - I am not perfect)Paleo Trail Mix
Coconut Butter and Oil
I thought I would have had a few extra options since the breakfast at the hotel was a "hot" breakfast. Little did I remember that it meant - eggs (a no no), waffles (a no no), cereals.... so basically a lot of grain/gluten products. The first morning I had bacon - about 2 pieces and decaf coffee. I dropped D and his brother off at their race and had a banana and peanut butter. I went back to our room and got ready to head down town Marquette to a Lake Shore Drive park to go run. It was beautiful!
Lake Superior is quite beautiful!
I didn't take any additional pictures on the run though. I did pass where I would later be picking up D and his brother, quite exciting!! So, since I already had not eaten very well the day before and on top of that think I got a little car sick (8 hours of travel with stops!! UGH!) I wasn't feeling the best - my digestive system just seemed incredibly irritated. I kept my run to a quick 6 miles. The fresh air was exactly what I needed to break my crabbiness! LOL - I do feel sorry for everyone that I came in contact with - I wasn't the most pleasant - and I slept a lot too!
I got back to the hotel to stretch and quickly shower - it was time to drive back downtown and pick the boys up! and boy were they messy!
Everyone was covered in mud - head to toe! If you didn't already guess we were at Ore to Shore.
Those are dirty legs!
We went to lunch, followed by a museum in the downtown a nap and then dinner. All of which were either under the amount I normally eat or things added that I couldn't and I was tired of sending things back at that point! Irritating to my already irritated system :(
Sunday morning was an early one! I couldn't sleep and finally decided to get up at 5:30am to get ready to leave. Breakfast was sausages (4), a banana, peanut butter (1 tbs.) and decaf coffee. Not bad, but the sausages where spicy - ugh was not helping! We stopped in Mackinac for lunch and to pick up fudge for my sister - her request - Chocolate and Rocky Road!
Car pic - going over the bridge. When you are actually on it, it doesn't look like it's 5 miles to cross, that is until you look at this picture!
Lunch was at a local restaurant - we hoped for actual lunch but had t settle for breakfast - again not good since it is SO limiting!
We left and headed for home - taking an extra hour due to traffic (as usual). I finished up the day with grocery shopping and dinner at Red Robin.
Today is 2 days since we came back and I am feeling pretty good today. I ran 10 miles this morning and had my big breakfast with a banana a ton of vegetables and chicken sausages! So tasty!!
Any problems you have had during a long trip?
