Tricks to stay on plan when you’re on the road.
Women are smart, creative and hard working creatures. They love their families well and try to do the right thing. SO WHY IS IT SO BLESSED HARD TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES?!?!?
Years ago when Trim Healthy Mama first came out with their huge book of explanation and recipes, there was NOTHING you could buy at the store on plan. You had to make it ALL or STARVE.
No sprouted bread, no sugar free snacks that did not contain aspartame… basically, we had to walk up the hill both ways in the snow without boots on. Every day.
Thankfully, our stores are catching on and listening. You can pretty much get your sprouted bread every week through Grocery Pickup, hallelujah!
So enter the road trips that so easily beset us and sabotage our weight loss and health goals.
It’s taken a pandemic of closed gas stations and stay-at-home orders to push me to get my on-plan plan in gear, but bless God, we are getting there!
Here is a list of on plan foods to make your next trip (or your crazy Drive Through Sue necessary week) a little easier! Feel free to share your own ideas, tips and tricks, and I’ll gladly add them for all our mamas.
The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng.
Psalm 68:11 KJV
Ooh, and look what arrived just in time to add to my reading material for the drive!!!! (Insert all the praise hands…!)
Happy safe traveling, my friends!
Grocery Pickup Options to stay on plan:
- Strawberries, washed and sliced
- Celery, washed and cut and bagged
- Carrots, washed and cut and bagged
- Rice cakes
- Rice crisps
- Pork rinds
- Blue corn chips
- Lily’s chocolate bars
- Coffee with cream and truvia or any other on plan sweetener

Baking some treats ahead of time always helps if you can. I got lucky this trip and had peanut butter chocolate bars in excess, so I’m cutting those up and bagging them now!
