The holidays can mean a lot of things: time spent with loved ones, beautiful decorations, indulging in delicious food. For some people the holidays also mean lots of traveling. And traveling, whether by plane, train, or automobile, can be incredibly stressful when you eat a real food diet, especially when you also have allergies. And no one wants to spend hours in the kitchen prepping food to take on their trip when they also have to pack, take the dogs to the kennel, run last minute errands, etc. Worrying about what you are going to eat doesn’t have to add an extra layer of stress on top of all the other things you have to do before your trip.
As many of you know I just completed the 21 Day Sugar Detox this past Sunday. Now, I’m not going to lie to you. This was my third time attempting this program but only the first time I actually finished. Now that’s not to say I was 100% perfect (I may have had a 1 or 2 french fries when my husband and I went to In-n-Out), but I did my best and completed all 21 days.
As many of you know, I have a full time job on top of running this blog. I work 8:00 am to 5:00 pm every Monday through Friday inside at a desk under fluorescent lighting, working on the computer, answering the phone and other general office duties. I know, living the dream!
Happy Friday everyone and welcome to another edition of Beyond Food Fridays! A few weeks ago I shared a picture of my meal plan on my instagram feed which led to some questions about my process and also a request for the template I use. And since Fridays are the day I typically do all my meal planning for the following week I figured today would be a great day to finally share some meal planning tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the last 2+ years and to share the template I use with you guys.
