  2. A simple hotel breakfast:
    oatmeal or cereal with almond milk, berries, and bananas.
  3. A simple hotel lunch or dinner:
    dry bean soup made with hot water from your coffee maker (high in plant protein, low in sodium, free of cholesterol and saturated fats).
    Add lemon, a handful of salad greens, and some hot sauce for extra flavor.
  4. Simple snacks:
    nuts, fruit, and carrots can be purchased at airports and even gas stations.
  5. When in doubt:
    avoid meat and sugary, processed foods, and plan ahead as much as possible.
