The Traveling Skinny Gourmet

So here I am, about to head out on my first trip to my beloved England in thirteen years, and I shall not be indulging in comfort food.

No curries.

No meat pies.

No fish and chips.

No bread.

No cheese.

No crumpets.

No scones with jam.

No clotted cream.

So with me I carry the makings of the half of the meals I will eat on the trip:

  • Protein powder
  • Protein bars
  • Protein nacho cheese chips/crisps
  • Almonds

To which I will add, after a quick dash to Tesco Metro:

  • Rice cakes
  • Rolled oats
  • Almond butter

The rest of my eats will concentrate heavily on grilled chicken, egg whites, and jasmine rice.

This will be an adventure, not just to add exercise and food prep to my 15-hour workdays, but to resist the food, wine, and beer.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
