In my world there are not 21 days in a row that are conducive to staying home and concentrating on a healthy Detox. So, this past weekend covered days 9, 10 and 11 on the Detox plan and I had to fly to Denver for a conference. Instead of giving up before I started , I decided to plan ahead and be creative.
The first thing I packed was some Protein shake powder and a good shaker cup. I’ve found that the Nutrilite Body Key shakes work really well because they have great flavors and all you have to add is water. I also packed some ready-made shakes in a separate suitcase. So I had my protein shakes, 2 per day ready to go.
I made sure that all the accompanying supplements were in my travel vitamin case and I packed an empty water bottle to refill with filtered water when I found some. Next I included apples, and carrot sticks for the plane, instead of eating sugary snacks or nuts.
Once I got to the airport it was time to be creative. I love Dulles Airport because they have a Chipotle restaurant open early in the morning. Before I boarded the plane I ate a bowl of brown rice and vegetables. So satisfying and I wasn’t ravenous when I arrived in Denver.
From then on it was just a matter of making good choices from the restaurants and stores. Would you believe I even found delicious seedless grapes at the 7-11 along with giant bottles of filtered water. The only compromise was egg whites and vegetables on a thin whole wheat bagel for breakfast.
On Sunday, day 11, I could introduce chicken breast or fish. So, we went to a great restaurant that served bison and I ordered grilled Salmon with asparagus and kale salad.
Now a lot of you are thinking, “how restrictive, I could never eat that way”. I get it, but I wasn’t craving dairy, red meat or wheat products at all. I felt great, had good energy and all systems were working well if you know what I mean. I just had to think ahead with a plan and make choices that fit the detox profile.
