Nothing to do but relax and eat my delicious meals
Folks, between today and my next post, I am leaving for Florida! I am spending a week in the sun and I could not be more excited!
But also, my food boundaries are a thing I do always, and no matter what. So when I travel, there are some things I need that most people don’t. I need a kitchen where I can cook. I need access to a grocery store. I need to bring at least one food scale with me. 2 is better. And on the day I travel, I need to bring all of the food I am going to eat that day, already prepped, portioned out, and ready to eat at meal times.
If we are going somewhere for a short time, and especially if we are driving, I can just bring the whole trip’s worth of pre-prepared meals with me. I did that to go to New Orleans several years back. And I prefer that. But when we travel to far places, and we fly, it’s impossible to bring a week’s worth of meals. So we spend more on hotels than most people in order to get a full kitchen.
Also, flying with food regularly gets me stopped by TSA. Even though I have Precheck. And that can be a little stressful, to be honest. OK, more than a little stressful.
But ultimately, knowing that my food is taken care of is the most important thing to me.
After my eating disorders are taken care of, everything else is just a situation to deal with between breakfast and lunch. And I can do that. Especially if dealing with it gets me on a plane to Florida with a week in the sun with nothing to do but relax and eat my delicious meals.
