Perhaps take a cooler of course stocked with Water but also some of your favorite pre made Protein shakes. I would also suggest the foil pouches of tuna and salmon. Depending on what type of diet your NUT has you on maybe bananas or other soft fruit?

Safe travels

I would take a cooler with some RTD Protein Shakes, some greek yogurt, maybe some ricotta and/or cottage cheese.< /p>

I'm going on a road trip (8 hr to Seattle to take an Alaskan cruise) this coming Monday! I've already got packed: almonds, Jerky, yogurt covered pretzels (a bit of a treat!), Cheerios, and a cooler with yogurt and Water. I almost always have a pkt of almonds in my purse for emergencies.

Traveling is so different now because I don't want to get stuck out with nothing to chooses from but a convenience store! I usually pack some nacho cheese or carmel mini rice cakes for crunch, applesauce, fruit cups, string cheese, roast beef or ham slices (rolled up), waters, crystal light, and my choco Premier Protein with some single serve folgers coffee packets to make my mochas :)

I am on the road a lot for my job. I always keep a small cooler with my Protein drinks (I like the Fruit Drinks as opposed to the shakes), string cheese (I can eat it while I am driving), and I sometimes pick up a pre-packed container of tuna salad from whole foods (and a fork!) and toss it in my bag as well.

I am a year out and have take. A few road trips. I do take nuts and I will pull over at Wendy's and order chili. Their chili has been a life saver when I'm on the road and there's no room for a cooler. I'm taking a road trip in a few weeks and I will be taking kind bars. I'm so loving those things they are all natural no processed crap, they do have carbs, but they are the good healthy carbs that your body needs. You can also take Jerky.< /p>

@Chitowngirl

I have never heard of kind bars. Please tell me about them and where do you get them?

@Laura V, I even packed my premier shakes in a ziplock and then a rubbermaid and checked them in my luggage, wasn't sure if they would explode since they are cardboard with foil opening. Made it through just fine and they saved my life since I was eating out 4 days straight.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
