Earlier this week I wrote a post about My Commitment to Stay Healthy on the Road. Well, I’m very pleased to report that I had some great ideas from readers and I would like to share a few:
I love the website http://www.yogadownload.com/ because it has some neat options for trying different yoga routines, then when you find one you really like you can buy it and have a pdf of the different poses as well as an audio voice talking you through it – after a few sessions, all you need is the audio on an ipod!
bring some little tupperware containers with you, and every person you stay with, you could ask to steal a little of whatever sauces or salad dressings sound good in the fridge, for a lot of variety of things to dip fresh veggies into as you drive.
From Mary Anne, who did a bike tour across Canada:
She suggests cous cous with a variety of add ins such as kale, chick peas, and cubed cheese … Cover with all other ingredients, drizzle oil & vinegar on top, and enjoy! – while bike touring my tour partner and I would make a LOT of this, eat half of it one night then save the other half for lunch the next day.
Farmers markets can be pricey depending on the location, but most areas have them now and you can buy as little as you want. Since their focus is fresh/seasonal fruits and vegetables, you can stock up on non-perishables that are easy to use without cooking and tasty too!
Take walks everywhere. It will help you learn your new neighborhood and it’s aerobic exercise.
Thanks guys for the great suggestions! We welcome additional ideas and recipes.
