a traveling Wife: What I Eat In A Day [While Living In A Hotel]

What I Eat In A Day [While Living In A Hotel]

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

This post was sponsored by Meta Appetite Control as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. 

Let's play catch up for a moment here. I've been living in a hotel for 19 days now and our Maryland house has sold. We still don't have a house yet here in Missouri but that's okay. We are actively exploring the new town and spent most of the last weekend at one of the state parks. The pup and I enjoyed some time outdoors away from these plain four walls of our hotel room.

Luckily our room has a small kitchenette with stovetop and microwave, and there is also a gas grill at our disposal. A and I have been experimenting with different meals each day and it's kind of fun to be creative away from an oven, especially since it's been so hot outside.

So if you are nosey like me, you love to see how others feed themselves and their family. With the few obstacles that I have while living in a hotel, follow along with what I eat in a day.

I can't get enough oatmeal. It's simple and delicious even on the hot summer mornings. The hotel we are staying at does offer a hot breakfast each morning, but I tend to just grab plain oatmeal and spice it up to my liking. You know, by adding things like fruit, yogurt, and/or peanut butter. Because really, who eats just plain oatmeal?

Snack One
It's not long after breakfast that my stomach starts to rumble. I grab whatever fresh fruit I have in the fridge. Lately it's been strawberries, cherries, or watermelon. On this particular day, I had a handful of cherries.

Sometimes a classic sandwich is all that's needed - meat, cheese, lettuce, and bread. Pair this with some popcorn and a glass of lemon water.

Snack Two
This is the time of day that my sweet tooth really starts calling out for something sweet. One way I avoid eating an entire bar of chocolate or carton of ice cream is by reaching for Meta Appetite Control from Walgreens.

I've been watching the Food Channel like crazy lately trying to come up with some new meals to make on the stovetop. I had a winner of a meal with Rachel Ray's Sriracha Chicken with Peanuts in Lettuce Wraps. I put my own twist on the dish by swapping out the chicken for ground turkey and added some wild rice with the lettuce wraps. This was a winner of a dish.

Unfortunately, the hotel typically serves up warm cookies in the evenings. I just can't stay away from those because COOKIES. But A and I typically hit up the gym or the pool in the evenings so I say, eat your cookies as part of an 80:20 lifestyle.
