I regularly complain about the terrible things that travel does to my diet. For the first time that I can recall, I'm getting suitable food at a conference. The HL7 conference lunches are genuinely suitable food. There is a salad that is tastey components, not just an excuse for fat laden dressings. The fruit is large quantities that are expected to be eaten, fresh and tasty. This is not the fruit display that is expected to last all week. Then they have good fresh vegetables without a sauce and meat in it's own juice. The only traditional carbs and fat offering is the potatoes side dish.
This is a great improvement over the usual carbs (bagels, pastry, more pastry, more carbs)and coffee, with fat laden carbs and meats for the meals. It is much easier to eat properly when the food is suitable.
Tonight's dinner was with relatives. Fish and lean beef on an electric grill at the table, eaten wrapped in lettuce leaves.
This is the first trip in a long time that is not a dietary disaster. Being in San Diego does make a difference.
