How Do You Cope With Holidays?

How Do You Cope With Holidays?

Need some help with how to survive & enjoy a weeks self catering in a caravan because of different foods, meal times and routine.

Any suggestions please

Keep it simple and cook like you would at home. Vegies I would think would be pretty much the same, as would carbs and protein. Stick with what you know. In a caravan one pot dinners are always good.

I always carry a healthy snack whether that is peanut butter crackers, protein bars, even depending on weather slices veggies. I even do this when going to movies to be safe. I have family members that when I stay w them on vacation will adjust their eating times to work around my schedule. If not I usually just make my dinner on my own. My kids eat so late so as much s I hate I'll eat dinner usual time then sit w them when they eat. Always take snacks n water

I'm with Sugarsup, take a break eat same food maybe just watch your portion size.

No need to stress over things the break can re-energise you.

Just stay off the sugar fad treats and be strict in eating bread.

As long as you are cooking from fresh youll be fine I would think

If you are travelling, you could pick up fresh items daily on your travels. This would make cooking a little easier. As @A DiabetesTeam Member mentions, fresh veggies are always great. You could also do stirfry's at a low cost. Probably not a lot of carbs as potatoes/rice/pasta would be difficult. So I would stick to meats & salads.

Keep some veggies in a cooler up in the cab with you, so when you need to eat something you can. That way if a meal is later than you are used to you can have a veggie snack to keep hunger at bay and hopefully not mess up your sugars too much, Eating out is tough, I try to do protein and veggies and go light on the carbs, only eat half or something. Hope that you enjoy your days traveling.
