I always feel less alone in the world, as I opt out of the “Standard American Diet” 95%+ of the time……when I hang out with people like Stasia, Jen, and Rachel. They are GSG readers and apprentice coaches.
This is me, having lunch with them downtown, while they were here from the East Coast. You can see my pint jar of green smoothie next to my salad.
Jen had her stick pack of chia seed that she sprinkled on her salad. Stasia had her baggy of sprouted, dehydrated flax crackers. And Rachel had a bag of Costco baby carrots, and baby bell peppers, that she whipped out to
augment our salads.
I love these ladies’ creativity! All of these are “tricks up my sleeve” that I employ, so that I can eat right when I’m traveling, too. Luckily, you can get a great salad almost anywhere. I have them put the dressing on the side,
I didn’t eat the bread thing that was on my salad, and I avoid GMO corn and soy products. You can even ask them for extra greens, or extra vegetables, or additional healthy items you see they use in other recipes. I do it all
Watching all three of these amazing, healthy women be creative when they travel is an inspiration! It really is possible. It takes a little planning ahead, is all. You know what to look for as the crux of the diet, and you scan the grocery stores and restaurants for these: living foods (sprouts), greens, vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
