For those that travel for work, chances are at some point during the 21-day Ultimate Reset Cleanse, you’ll be on the road. How can you take your cleanse protocol on the road?
Here are 5 tips for road warriors that are doing the Ultimate Reset Cleanse.
1) Cook in advance
Cook on Sundays, salad bar by Thursday
One way we approached the food preparation for the days Antonios was traveling for work was to cook ahead of time. It would make for a long day of cooking on Sundays, so you may want to pull out that Rosetta Stone CD or personal development tape that you’ve always wanted to listen to so you can make great use of your time in the kitchen.
What we found was we were able to cook for about 3 days, but not more (by day 4, the pre-cooked meals were not as delicious). So, if you are going to be on the road longer than 3 days, plan for some salad bar meals and some Shakeology meals. You can check the online Participant Portal to see what meal is scheduled for the day and then pick foods that are as close to the scheduled meal as possible.
If you need to make a substitute, swap meals from within the same week. (ie: if you are in week 1, swap another week 1 meal).
2) Nuts travel well
Pack some nuts for a healthy snack. A packed apple or celery can be a great snack for the 1st or 2nd day, but by day 3 and beyond, nuts are a great travel snack. Just be mindful of the portion sizes (which you’ll find in your Ultimate Reset nutrition guide).
3) Salad bar meals
Look up the food stores in the area that you’ll be traveling to ahead of time. If you are working close to a Whole Foods Market, you should be able to piece together a great Reset-friendly meal from the salad bar. Here’s a link to the Whole Foods store locator. If there is not a Whole Foods or other natural food market in the nearby vicinity, what are your other options? Plan ahead so you don’t find yourself coming out of back-to-back meetings so hungry you end up at the closest vending machine. Happy cow is a vegetarian restaurant guide that can be a useful starting place for finding Reset-friendly places to eat while traveling for work, but once you find the name of a restaurant, look up it up and check out the menu before going.
4) Drink Shakeology
Shakeology is a terrific option for a nutrient-dense meal on the go. Even when Antonios and I are not doing the Ultimate Reset Cleanse, we travel with Shakeology. It’s so power-packed and so convenient.
5) No excuses
Here’s a little tough love coming from a former road warrior… “I was traveling” is a true statement, but it is still a story you tell yourself to let yourself off the hook. I say this without judgment, I have heard those words come out of my mouth before too.
But if you want to be successful with your Ultimate Reset Cleanse, leave your excuses behind as you embark on your 21-day journey. Yes, it will be challenging. But it is do-able. Just decide to do it, and then do it.
Wishing you so much luck as you take on the added challenge of travel during the Ultimate Reset Cleanse. You are not alone on the journey!
