Seeking Tips for Travel

Hello All. I am on week three of a NK plan. So far, I am happy with the results. I have had good success, first with Atkins and later, Protein Power plans in the past. Sadly, I fell back into dumb eating habits and I need to get back on track.

I have a 5 day business meeting coming up. I will need to fly to the meeting, and if I have any fridge space available in the hotel room, I will consider myself very lucky. Meals will not be served, and my expense allowance is very low.

I think I can fit a small jar of CO into my checked luggage, and some nuts, but I need to limit nuts, as they throw off my readings (holding steady at about .9 on the blood test, first thing in the morning). I can also throw some cheese and protein powder in the bag.

Can anyone please help me think of what I can bring, and eat, while away. In the past I have found options so limited, I end up being hungry the whole time.

First, I make a "cooler" with plastic bags I bring from home and ice from the hotel. I bring some things with me on the plane in a bag with ice. The ice has to be dumped prior to security, but the flight attendant will give you ice when you board the plane. Bring a few zip-locks.

Second, most hotels have access to microwaves in the lobby. Call and ask before you leave.

Bring;
pre-cooked bacon
cream cheese- take out of foil wrapper
packets of mayo and mustard, you may be able to get some at the airport
hard boiled eggs
Butter
OMMs
pepperoni
salami

If the airport has a McD, I will buy 2 quarter pounders and put them on ice for later.
