On the goPosted: May 5, 2012
For me and maybe for you too, when I’m out and about I tend to do two things:
- Accumulate waste, a bottled water here, a to-go soy chai there… oh and may I have that cookie as well?!
- Yup, my healthy eating usually slides too.
BUT if I’m just a wee bit prepared, I’m able to stay on the path I’m choosing for myself.
So here are some things I’ve learned.
Stainless steel canisters, like the Klean Kanteen are wonderful for water. I’ve tried the glass ones with the silicone sleeve, the BPA free plastics. For me, the stainless stays CLEAN, no weird smells, no major problems if I left it half full of water in the car over night, no cracked plastic lids.
However, for a smoothie, a shake, or a green juice – glass is preferable. I know it’s not so sturdy, but when I need to eat on the go, I pack my smoothie in a Ball’s Mason Jar and I know it won’t leak and it will clean like a dream once I’m back home.
In case you were wondering, here’s what’s in my smoothie:
1 cup Homemade Almond Milk
½ cup frozen blueberries
Generous squirt flax seed oil
Big handful yellow chard
Hand full diced celery
1 scoop vegan protein powder
1 heaping TBS Raw Cacao
2 Medjool dates (pitted)
