Tips for Eating Paleo on the Go

If you’re like the majority of kickass women out there, you’re always out and about running errands, commuting to work, taking the kids to practice, getting groceries, etc. Such a hectic schedule lends itself to crappy eating, and crappy eating lends itself to completely sabotaging your healthy lifestyle, not to mention your waistline.

I don’t want this to happen to you so here are some tips and tricks I learned for keeping up with a Paleo lifestyle in the midst of a busy life.

1. Keep snacks on you: Always, always, always keep Paleo friendly snacks in the car or in your purse (you may need a cooler). I recommend things like a bag of nuts or a bag of seeds, granola bars (Paleo-approved, not the sweet, half-chocolate kind), a bag of vegetables or a bag of fresh fruit. Our all-time favorite Paleo-friendly snack in of course our Skinny Cleanse Juices! No sugar is EVER added to our juices-- anything you see on the label is from the goodness of the fruits and leafy greens!

2. Order smart at restaurants: For sit-down restaurants, what you order will depend on what type of restaurant you’re visiting. Here are some examples of meals:

    • Bar & Grille: a turkey burger without the bun or sauce and a side salad with boiled eggs and no premade dressing; a chicken sandwich without the bun or sauce with a baked sweet potato on the side (I find coconut oil is a great sub for butter on the potato); or, just a healthy salad loaded with veggies is great too (if they have avocado, that would be even better to add to your salad)
    • Breakfast joints: Eggs, eggs and more eggs with some veggies and avocado would be a great option; a large fruit cup would be a nice snack
    • Chinese: Grilled veggies and seafood/veggie combos; sushi (if you don’t go crazy on the rice)
    • Mexican: Beef or chicken fajitas sans the fajita and loaded with veggies and a side of guacamole 
    • Italian: Stick with a bare salad with a protein on top
    • Steakhouses: Fill up on the steak and veggies and a sweet potato; if you’re feeling dessert, opt for a fruit cup
    • Deli: Any type of salad with protein; a protein-filled lettuce wrap; other wraps not made of grains (spinach or tomato, for example)

3. Do your best with what's available to you: Don't over-complicate it, or you will stress yourself out and not enjoy the process of becoming healthier! Sometimes, it just isn’t possible to eat Paleo-approved, so do your best with it and remember – every little step in the right direction, no matter how small, is still a step towards optimal health and your best self.

    Arming yourself with the right foods and making them easily available is the first step. I like to keep snacks like the Skinny Cleanse Juices handy-- for before and after workouts, for an impromptu breakfast, for a snack on-the-go, the possibilities are endless!
