One of my loves is motorcycle touring. These are trips of 3-10 days riding all over the country.
Since I was diagnosed in June 2009, I have had to to make some serioius changes in my eating lifestyle. At first I thought this will really complicate my motorcycle riding. Being the type of person that adapts fairly well to new things, I set out to find ways to ride and keep true to my new eating lifestyle.
These are some of the things I have learned and done.
1. You can eat at a burger joint, just don't eat the bun or fries.
2. Stopping at a market and getting a lunch from the fruit vegetable sections and some cold cuts from the deli section is a good way to stay on the plan.
3. Carry along some snack type foods for breaks (pastachios, cashews, almonds etc, even some dried fruit)
4. when eating at a restuarant for breakfast or dinner, just substitue veggies for the potato or rice or bread. Most restaurants are very good about substitutions.
I'd like to hear what others have found helpful when traveling to keep true to a good diabetic eating lifestyle.
