I’m realllllllllllllllllllly looking forward to our family vacation coming up. I feel like it’s been a really long, hardworking summer and I am READY for some R & R!
I’ve been scoping out the place where we’re going and it looks like the food situation… um, I don’t know. We’re staying in these rustic cabins and it looks as though everyone who stays there eats in a cafeteria kind of place. Hm. All I can do is cross my fingers, hope for the best, Make Good Choices, etc.
I think it will be a plus-minus sort of situation. On one hand, there will be opportunity for a lot of activity. Hiking, biking, rafting etc! In a beautiful spot! On the other hand, it’s a lot of unknowns, especially with the food. I won’t have my scale. 😉 I am pretty sure there is going to be NO INTERNET (!!!!!!!!!!). So that does not bode well for my food blog. I am vowing to take pics of all my eats though, and when I can upload them, I will.

Personally? I would just see what is available and then make the best choices you can. Obviously you know yourself what the healthier options are. If you are going to be hiking or quite active, eat protein for breakfast to keep you going for a while. And get your fruit and veg in where you can. You are going on HOLIDAY and you will be active – don’t sweat the “what am I going to eat” too much!
Most of all, HAVE FUN!!

Looks like a gorgeous place! I think you’ll be having too much fun to sweat the food stuff very much. Plus, you’re a strong person – I don’t think a week or two of vacation is going to undo two years of healthy living. Hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful time together!

Here is what I know about Yellowstone:
No internet at any lodging inside of the park (there is internet at hotels outside of the park, where we stayed because we had dogs with us). There are those cafeteria dining options–they do offer salads and stuff, but it really isn’t great food. There is a great BBQ place outside the West Gate that will offer protein-centric food options (and which we quite enjoyed).
Get thee to a grocery store. When we travel, one of the first things we try to go and find is a grocery store where we load up on healthy snacks, including fruit & veg.
There are LOTS of beautiful sights inside and around Yellowstone–it is one of our favorite places in the entire U.S. Take lots of pictures! Have fund! Go see Mammoth Hot Springs and the Paint Pots!

You’ll make it work, Foodie! You can always write some blogs and save them for when you can post. You can keep a daily diary kind of thing. It’s totally not the same, but ………. Yes, take lots of photos. Lots of love to you and family. You are going to have a more than awesome time!

Enjoy your vacation! Try not to stress too much about the food. Make the best choices you can and then just hop back on good clean eating when you get back home to recover.
