Action Steps for a Carefree PD Getaway
- Make a Travel Meal Plan Cheat Sheet
|Plan to return home one day short of going back to work, so you have time for a fresh restock when you get back. SUS your return home meal. Leave behind: – a jar of yogurt – ferments – herb box w/fresh towel – hearty fresh vegetables ——- How many meals will you need on your trip? Plan an arrival meal: Keep it simple & bring everything needed for this first meal so you don’t have to go to the store right away.Plan additional meals.Plan a return home meal.Plan PD Beverages. For each meal, list: – essential tools to pack – condiments to SUS – pantry items to pack – fresh items to pack – fresh items to buy Make grocery shopping part of the adventure.|
- Packing Tips
- Plan meals that share the same fresh essentials. (i.e. Plant based Yogurt = “crema”, yogi bowl, & a banana bread ingredient)
- Make needed condiments ahead of time and leave your blender behind. Quart jars are fridge-ready and easy to label/pack.
- Pack jarred condiments for the week, and fresh fruits & vegetables for your arrival meal in a cooler with ice packs.
- Beverages: fill reusable water bottles with prepared teas & water for travel. Pack your water filter to insure water quality.
- Bring what you need. Don’t expect the store to have it. Soymilk, clean broth & erythritol may not be available locally.
- Pack loose dry ingredients in jars or glass storage containers that can double as reheat vessels in the Instant Pot.
- Preassemble dry cake mixes in recycled applesauce jars. Write wet ingredient measurements on the lid with a sharpie.
- Pack: oats, essential spices, canned beans, loose teas, pasta, applesauce, brown rice, vanilla, rice vinegar & tamari.
- “Convenience” foods include Ramen noodles and rice cakes for Lucky dog.
Essential Kitchen Tools
- Plan meals that share minimal equipment. Pack what you need and love. Don’t expect the vacation rental to have it.
- The Instant Pot is used to make a variety of meals, including extra yogurt, and all the needed accessories can be nested inside it to save space. Be sure to pack the seal, pressure valve, rack, soufflé dish & a glass measuring cup. Pad with kitchen towels, which are always limited in vacation rentals, to keep equipment from rattling during travel.
- Pack some Ziploc bags and a storage container to be use for leftovers, fresh market finds or to transport food on an outing.
- Pack a small pot with lid, cutting board and knife, large salad bowl, can opener, measuring cups & spoons, tea strainer, dish scrubber (to protect your microbes and your manicure), a Scotch Brite(in case something burns), and chopsticks just for fun.
- Enjoy Meal Flexibility, Food Cost Savings & Fit Fun
- Using the 50/50 plate practice guidance, travel meals can be flexible with free-style probowls and salad bowls.
- Ramen Probowl: Start by dry steaming kale. Remove soufflé dish from the IP. Bring more water to pressure in the IP. Quick release. Add noodle bricks, Broth Mix, and Dry Steamed Kale. Stir. Add fermented toppings, tamari & rice vinegar.
- GOAL: Consistently eat a Protective Diet and LOVE your food. BONUS = massive food cost savings (Julie only spent $67!).
- Plan getaways that help you maintain your active PD lifestyle and offer the space you need to care for yourself.
- Get outside. Explore. Experience a variety of activity that celebrates your healthy body. Soak up some vitamin D.
- Treat yourself to a piece of gear that supports your goals instead of traditional vacation indulgences that sabotage them.
- Check out ethnic markets as a fulfilling replacement for eating out. Treat yourself to beautiful, local fresh fruit “candy”.
- Instant Pot travel cooking sequence: pressure cooked cake (in the morning), dry steamed veggies, followed by dinner starch.
- Steam corn on the cob, broccoli or fresh green beans on top of kale following the guidance in the Dry Steamed Kale recipe.
- Toss pomegranate arils into savory pasta and rice dishes for extra plant fiber, anthocyanin protection and fabulous flavor.
- Toss salad right in the storage container if you have a small prep space. Wash dishes in the bathtub if the sink is too small.
- Wear your dog out by taking a long walk before traveling extended hours in the car.
- Everyone deserves the personal attention it takes to be healthy and feel fantastic.
- If you are starting a Protective Diet today, keep it up every day. You will be dancing around the kitchen celebrating your health and hiking mountains like a PD Pro sooner than never. I promise. It doesn’t matter where you start as long as you finish.
“The best part of our trip was my healthy body. My same body that was inflamed, morbidly obese, and in pain (wearing orthopedic shoes in my 20s), now climbs mountains with ease. Getaways are fun and carefree when we are healthy, pain-free and in shape.”
