WOE: Low Carb

I have been traveling back and forth quite a ways to spend time with my Mom who is critically ill in the hospital. Eating low carb has not been pleasant, as the hospital food is HORRIBLE to say the least, and I get tired of crappy restaurant food and too tired to even go to one to eat. Any suggestions on packing a days worth of food for travel?

If you can take a little lunch cooler, it might be easier to take snackable things like nuts, cheeses, pepperoni, sliced cucumbers and peppers, things like that.
I'm so sorry about your mother and

Pop top tuna, hb eggs with mayo in those little packets, protein shakes. If you have an insulated bag, salad with all the fixings. I usually pack lettuce separate and everything else in a container. Mix when ready to eat.

Sorry to hear about your mom hope she is better soon.

I was in a hospital for a year so ask them if you can store your fixings in their fridge. I'm sure they will let you.
You can get cream cheese in a packet. Ham rollups with cheese. Make cheese crackers and guacolmole ( not spelled right) in a container. Tuna or ham and cheese muffins.

They have a microwave on the floor.

I've spent a ton of time in hospitals. My DH has many medical issues. I throw those little summertime containers that keep things cold in a bag and take chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad, rotisserie chicken, cooked chicken thighs, drumsticks, tuna muffins, cheese and almond crackers, small cubes of ham. When I am really tired then I'll take a sandwich on low carb bread. I used to take my Nook to read while he was sleeping. You can check out books for your e-reader from your local library.
When DH has to be in the hospital but is well enough to play, I always have deck of cards in my purse. We play reg card games but also cribbage without a board, just keep score on paper.
I am sorry about your mother and hope she gets better. Try to get enough sleep and take care of yourself. Running back and forth to the hospital worrying all the time about your loved one can also take a toll on you.
