Kayak Trip on Diet 3



Recommended Posts

Hey All - I am heading out on a 4 day kayaking trip. We will sleep in a cottage every night and have Breakfast and possibly supper there before/after each day trip. I am planning meals for the cottage and while out on the Water or parked on the shore. The cottage has electricity, stove, oven, microwave and fridge and I will have a cooler with me in my kayak.

I am on diet 3, soft foods. I was wondering if anyone had and any ideas to share for food and Snacks. I am used to being on the go with school and work. I have mostly been doing good but have skipped some meals and snacks in the past week in favor of convenience when busy. I am looking for things that are easier to set up, store and eat. For my health and good habits, and so I don’t get weak on the trip, I want to really stop and focus on making sure I can fit high Protein, nutritive food into my day. I am fairly active, so I was told to have 3 meals and 3 snacks.

An example of what I have been doing when I allow myself the time to prepare and eat properly:

Breakfast: 1 scrambled egg, 1 tbs cottage cheese

Snack: 6 oz 2% Fairlife milk

Lunch: 4 shrimp (about 2 ounces), 2 ounces puréed spinach

Snack: 2 ounces yogurt

Supper: 2 ounces red lentil purée, 1 ounce puréed quinoa, hemp, cottage cheese blend (yes, it really puréed!)

Snack: 0.5 ounce grav lox, 1 oz cottage cheese, 0.5 ounce avocado

I plan to have a very stern conversation with myself and make every effort not to skip meals or snacks. Rather than sacrifice quality (I don’t love prepared foods), I have been sacrificing quantity (not eating) due to being so busy. And I always say we’re never too busy to get it right at work, so I need to implement that in every day life, too. In a pinch, I’ve eaten part of a little packet of almond butter or half an Epic or DMX bar. I guess I could do that but I was trying to think of more options. Does anyone have any other on-the-go and travel meal and snack ideas?

Nuts, cheese, Premier Protein shakes, and hummus in a lunch box carried me through a recent outing

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
