‘Travel Food List’ for The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D)

When you’re on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) or another type of gut healing protocol, traveling can be a real challenge. It’s not easy to be away from your kitchen, your comfort zone.

When you travel on B.E.D. the world can feel big and the food choices are slim. Food seems to be everywhere, except in your mouth! Then there’s the smells! Coffee brewing, fries frying, pizza baking. It’s hard to say no when you’re on the go.

I put together the list below to help you, and your belly, be happy when you travel. I hope that it helps you stay on track with your dietary and healing goals while traveling. There’s a lot of good ideas here, so no excuses 😉

First things first, here are a bunch of great B.E.D. snack ideas that you can pack!

The most important thing that I can say is to do your best to not to travel in the first 3 months of the diet. The learning curve is steep and there’s a lot to integrate into your life. So, staying home is the most comfortable option during this time.

The next thing is to plan ahead, write up a weekly menu plan, and invest in a couple travel coolers – they’ll become your best friends! Next…pack your bag of non-perishable snacks and keep it close by! Then, print off the list of food ideas for B.E.D. below!

Pack a bag of “basics”:

  • Cordless hand blender (makes food easier to digest)
  • Air tight travel shaker
  • Chia seeds
  • Assorted teas (free of citric acid)
  • Air-tight bags of dried seaweed
  • Celtic sea salt in small container
  • Organic extra virgin olive oil, Udo’s choice oil, coconut oil
  • Organic apple cider vinegar
  • Organic spices
  • Powdered stevia (green and white)
  • Stevia liquid concentrate
  • Organic, raw vanilla powder
  • Assist full spectrum digestive enzymes (I don’t leave home without this)
  • HCl with Pepsin Capsules (to digest protein)
  • BioKult capsules (don’t need refrigeration)

Pack a bag of powdered/ liquid healing goodies:

Pack a small travel cooler:

Pack a medium cooler for storage items:

Note: Change the ice packs in your coolers often and try not to open them too much. This will help to keep the temp. low. If you lodge somewhere with a fridge, put your cooler stuff into it.

Pack a bag of staples for when you have kitchen access:

  • Almonds (blanch/blend/ferment into almond yogurt with 1 probiotic capsule)
  • Dried fish with sea salt (popular snack in Norway/Iceland and perfect travel food)
  • Non-GMO lecithin (nerve calmer, energizer)
  • Amaranth, buckwheat, quinoa, millet (soak and ferment them overnight if possible, cook into porridge in  morning, add spices and oils and pack in your mini-cooler)
  • Big bottles of oils, apple cider vinegar, etc.
  • Dried, sour berries for soaking

Along the way (depending on availability) buy some fresh stuff like vegetables, sour fruits, eggs, meat, and fish. These fresh foods will keep you fresh as a butterfly!! And in time, this eating on-the-go business will get easier, I promise.

“I’m a musician and on tour most of the year. I also practice B.E.D. I spend long days on the road with poor sleep conditions, little opportunity to exercise, and play gigs that require a lot of energy. It’s a daily challenge to keep my body and belly happy. Thank you for the guidance and support Tara, you’ve helped me so much”. ~ M.V., touring musician
