As I wrote recently, I spent this weekend in Tunica, Mississippi, with a friend. At one point we considered going to the Paula Deen Buffet. She wondered aloud, is there anything in there you could eat? (you don’t want to know what my internal monologue was at that precise moment)
Since I’m past the six week point in the program, I’m allowed two 60-calorie servings of fruit and four 1-cup servings of vegetables a day in addition to my meal replacements. I’m sure they have a salad bar and a fruit tray in there somewhere, but I didn’t need anything other than what I brought.
When I’m traveling, I pack apples, meal replacement bars, and chocolate powdered meal replacements, all of which I can carry without refrigeration and prepare with nothing more than a glass of water. When I’m out for the afternoon I’ll throw in an ice pack and a small container of Walden Farms salad dressing to use at places like Panera Bread.
