This guy has planning nailed!

You can’t imagine how many of my friends and colleagues have told me they could never be on a vegan diet, can’t eat any better or can’t take running (or any other sports) more seriously because they are always traveling. I disagree with them all the time. I also travel a lot and I don’t find it an excuse. With a little bit more planning and creativity you will find it surprisingly easy to eat healthy (meaning vegan mostly non processed foods for me personally). So this week, since I’m going out on a business trip to Chicago, I’ll show you how I do it. Now, I have to say, today will look like a lot of food (and it is) but it was an intense workout morning and my body needed it for optimal recovery. The point is for you to get some ideas and reference points so that you can adjust to your own goals, needs and tastes.
Tuesday, March 6th
Day started at 5:30 am. My flight doesn’t leave until 1pm, but have an intense 2 hour workout ahead of me as part of my boston qualification training plan. Since I can’t wait for 2-3 hours to digest a normal breakfast to exercise at medium/high intensity, I take on my fast fuel: vega pre-workout energizer (great 100% plant based ingredients … you will fell turned “on” in a matter of seconds and it tastes great as well) and 1 clif shot (double espresso with 2 shots of caffeine is my favorite). If you don’t have any sports products, that’s fine drink a coffee and eat a banana sprinkled with cinnamon.
