Recently, I went on a trip to northern California – driving from San Diego to San Luis Obispo to Sacramento and back. There are a lot of places to eat on the road, but not much for paleolithic dieters.
Traveling and eating paleo can be tricky. The easiest way for me to keep to my paleo eating regime is to bring food with me on my trip. In my quest for paleo foods I have found some great products that will keep me going and not break the bank.
So I brought my own bag of paleo goodies. In my bag of paleo goodies I wanted jerky, veggies, and nuts.
I have invested in a dehydrator and make my own jerky. My home made jerky recipes adhere to paleolithic nutrition diet standards. Often it is hard to find jerky at the store that is nitrate, soy and grain free.
Ok, I have my meat covered. I have been trying to keep my sugar intake to a minimum, so I am eating lots of veggies. Veggies are great, but often not so good uncooked or at room temperature.
A while ago I came across a raw food brand, Go Raw! Go Raw makes raw food products that are a paleolithic dieters dream. All the products are raw, organic, and gluten free. You can literally plant a Go Raw bar and it will grow.
Jerky and a few different bags and bars from Go Raw are plenty of snack/meals for the road. To add icing to my cake I also brought a pound of almonds and some cashews.
The jerky, Go Raw products, and nuts were plenty of food for the trip. To tip the iceberg I also had a few V-8s. I only had to stop for gas. The trip was awesome and I maintained my paleolithic nutrition diet.
