I’m travelling, and when I travel I like to bring much of my own food. Between eating low-carb for diabetes and food allergies, I sometimes find myself in a restaurant where there’s nothing I can eat. (Note: I think eating low-carb alone, without allergies, while travelling is fairly easy.)Usually I like to bring breakfast and lunch, since those tend to be buffets or fast food or catering. Dinner is usually at a restaurant, but I still like to have some backup food options.
For breakfast I’ve usually brought hard-boiled eggs and pre-cooked bacon. I did that this trip, but it’s not the most convenient thing to put in your luggage, though doable.
A friend of mine with allergies used to bring packets of instant oatmeal as breakfast. This seems the perfect solution for breakfast, as it’s portable, healthy, and requires no fridge. But it’s not low-carb. So I set about making my own low-carb version of instant oatmeal complete with it being sweet. (Some may find it too sweet.)
I’m not sure of my exact measurements, but it’s something like this:
1 cup hemp hearts
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup Swerve
1/3 cup Sukrin Gold
1/6 cup cinnamon
It tastes exactly like “brown sugar” flavoured instant oatmeal to me, when combined with hot water and stirred then left for five minutes.
I was going to add a photo., but FUD is not allowing me to upload photos for the past month.
