I still start the day, with my oatmeal based muesli with berries and unsweetened yoghurt.
Home Made Muesli
I've been making home made muesli since the 1970s. I use this basic recipe and vary it if depending on what I feel like adding to each mixture. Have fun experimenting if you make your own.
Apple Muesli: Serves 2
Swap the grated apple for Frozen Mixed Berries, and serve when they are partly thawed.
It's so easy. I used to buy frosh blueberries. then as they became more expensive I planted a dozen assorted varieties. They are a lovely plant to grow, and fruit well where you got cold winter climates.
On a day long drive, I do my best to maintain fitness, by packing whole grain bread, easy to eat vegetables, like tomatoes, and individually wrapped low-fat cheese, bananas, mandarin, almonds and lots of water, in the car with us.
I wear a pedometer and take frequent walk breaks and still try to clock up my 10,000 steps for the day, even on long driving days.
I portion control, by eating when I am hungry, stopping when satisfied and keeping an eye on the calorie portion size, thinking of ideal meal and snack size for me.
I eat 100 to 150 calorie fruit and nut snacks x one or two times a day, and I have a 300 to 350 calorie allowance, for my meal.
With the makings of the meals in the car, it saves a lot of money by not buying take away food, and I know I am continuing to eat the way I like to, even on the drive.
I usually start the day, with my oatmeal based, muesli with berries and non-fat unsweetened yogurt.
When I arrive at my destination after a day's driving, I find fish and salad, even using tinned salmon, is an effortless, meal to prepare and the simplicity of making that, allows me a little extra walking around the campsite time and a few exercises.
