Keto Tip (73): Food Choices During Vacation!

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

    So while on vacation, you can make better choices. Always remember that most people can still overeat good food. Keep it super simple, and don't overthink it. It's not about perfection, but it's about the process of your journey and staying in your own lane. The only way you fail is if you quit. 

Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephani and we're going to talk about vacation and food.

What did you have for lunch today?

We're in Florida right now with my whole family. I'm with my two sisters, brother, my husband, all the husbands, my parents, and all 14 grandkids. We're at Cocoa Beach, it's only day one and we're going to be here all week.

I had a couple of people ask me what I was going to do for food. "Do you guys go out to eat?", and "Doesn't that get expensive?"

My parents love to drive, they would drive to Europe if they could. My parents packed up their bus, and they drove all the way to Florida. And so we are all on vacation, we're at the beach and we all rented an Airbnb together in Orlando.

I'm going to share with you what we're doing for food, we actually just finished making lunch. So my parents not only have a bus, but they also packed a trailer. And in the trailer, they brought a grill too. So we made burgers, hot dogs, and broths. We are going to grill for the next couple of days on the beach, or at the hotel, and we're keeping it super simple.

Let's just be real, if you're vacationing or traveling, it does get really expensive when you go out to eat, especially with kids.

So we packed our own food, and then we're going to the grocery store. We're going to make our own food, and I actually don't know if we'll go out to eat one time. First of all, it's hard to go out to eat with 24 people. Everybody can sit with their families but our kids would rather be playing in a pool or in the ocean.

But if in case we were to go out to eat, we can still stay low carb and keep it super simple. Order whatever you want, you can stick to protein and a salad. Take the croutons off your salad, and put the dressing on the side. I actually just had a burger with no buns, super simple and it completely satisfied me. I think oftentimes, people think they need to have two sides or an appetizer. No, you don't!

Remember most people overeat, and you can even overeat good food.
