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?

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
