We're going on a road trip after Christmas. There are lots of travel related threads here in which the traveler is advised to consider intermittent fasting, or essentially try getting by on appetite-sating jerky or coconut manna.
Well, those suggestions, relevant though they may be for a couple of seasoned paleo adults, won't work for us this time.
I will have a 2 year old and a 4 year old - and we are spending a total of about 35 hours on the road over several days. (And yes, I already concede that is crazy, and we too doubt our own sanity on the prospect, but let's set aside that issue for this thread.)
It's our first major road trip since going paleo, so I need ideas on fairly nonperishable snacks/meal options to pack, since telling a hungry 2 year old that it's time to suck it up and intermittent fast isn't exactly an option. ;)
Here's what I'm working with:
We might be able to swing bringing a cooler with us, but we won't have access to refrigeration the entire time. So whatever goes in the cooler, even if it's topped off with ice, has to be compatible with generally cool (but not refrigerator-cold) conditions the whole 5 days.
I'm OK with dancing with some processed foods on this one, but especially if the ingredient lists are decent. In other words, I'm not afraid to flex conscientiously.
Ideas for fast food chains we can hit for meals on the road? My current thoughts are supplementing fast food grilled chicken salads bought with brought-along foods - and keeping an eye out for Chipotles.
I'm not sure at this point whether we'll have the ability to stop at any grocery stores, though I hope that is the case.
OK, I'm ready for the magic that is a PaleoHacks brainstorm. Bring on the ideas! :)
