Stuck in a Convenience Store Eating

Stuck in a Convenience Store

When you aren’t able to prepare your own meals, when in a bind such as a road trip, or near-famished state…..

Head for the refrigerated deli section. Lunchables are a great combo – just toss the crackers and have a meat and cheese spread. You can also find lean meat lunchables such as turkey. Find a packet of mustard to go with it.

Grab a microwaveable egg sandwich, remove the biscuit bun.

Go for the nuts and get some almonds, or macadamia nuts.

Look for cheese sticks.

Find beef jerky sticks, including beef and cheese combinations.

READ THE LABELS OF EVERYTHING YOU EAT. Make sure the ingredients satisfy your dietary needs.
