so……… I had packed some pretty darn good food to take on the road recently. I had the car, the esky (packed with lots of great food), my hubby and just enough room for my pillow after packing marquees, books, packet mixes, clothing and shoes!
I packed some really yummy stuff, always paying attention to the amount of protein, essential fats & hydration I know I need to get me through really busy days. This time round it was chicken, sweet potato, avocado, a small loaf of grain-free-bread, a few mangoes a small chopping board and knife.
I was away for three days (staying in a motel for 2 nights) – so I had the capacity to put leftovers into the fridge on arrival. This gave me “leftovers” for dinner and lunch the next day.
I ran out of food and had to visit the supermarket before leaving town to come home … the nearest supermarket was a Woolworths – I chose it because it was there. Simple.
I knew I needed some protein ( it was early and there was nothing good for breakfast), some good fats for my brain and maybe some dried fruit (a little bit).
I was pretty happy I could eat food close to nature (nuts and the raw food bar), gluten-free & grain-free, no numbers or additives and didn’t cost me the earth! The photo has heaps of text letting you know a bit more about the products I grabbed, what’s in em and other stuff you might need to know. I have posted a wee bit of information below the photograph about NUTS and what to look for when purchasing at the supermarket. Check it out below.
I don’t know about you, but when I go to the supermarket for a long time I would just go directly to the Health Food section for something like nuts as a snack option on the road.
I thought I would do an experiment and check out the difference between the Health Food brand and the generic brand (found in the chips, junk and more junk section). The generic Woolworths Brand was perfect for what I was looking for. 2 Ingredients – macadamia and sea salt. The Allergy warning was for nuts only – no wheat, gluten, soy etc – the health food brand had all of those warnings and a few more.
The cost was less because it was not Health Food – go figure!
