On The Go

We all have those days that start at 4am and don’t end until late in the evening…no? Just me? Seriously? Maybe the 4am part is just me…I know, it’s special. Back to the point. Some days are LONG! That being said, it is important to have a good game plan for your day, especially when it comes to food!

You know the quote “I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry”? That is totally me. Why? Scientifically speaking low blood sugar happens when we go to long without eating. Hypoglycemia would be the extreme to this. There are many symptoms associated with having low blood sugar, including headaches and grouchiness. Okay, the grouchiness may not be scientific, but it is totally true!

Here are a list of on the go specials you may want to consider carrying around in your purse, bag or man purse….hey we don’t discriminate around here:
Boiled eggs
Homemade trail mix
Nuts
Fruit
Dried fruit
Beef jerky
Kale chips
Pumpkin seeds
Larabars
Caveman cookies
Leftovers
Raw veggies
Plantain chips

These are also great things to have around if you know you could be stuck at an event with non-paleo food options, so you are not tempted to eat something you normally wouldn’t and you won’t have to worry about your blood sugar dropping too low. However, be kind….sometimes it’s better etiquette to eat what you are offered! No need to be rude! It is just food for goodness sake! Now go grab a yummy snack!
