    I expect to be out for work (I am a consultant) for two weeks straight, so lots of traveling time at airports, hotels, on the road, etc.

    I was wondering if there are people here that have similar occupations that have this type of schedule and what food choices / options you have during such times.

    When I was traveling as a consultant and trying to eat well, I would go for the sandwich shops (prepackaged at the airport's 'Quickie Mart'). You can usually get whole fruit there, too. Subway was a decent alternative. At hotels and lunch, I'd just try to eat as lightly as possible--go for the salads if you have to eat at the hotel's restaurant, or if you're by a mall with various options, Panera bread worked pretty well, using their "Pick 2" combo: half sandwich plus a cup of soup, and I think an apple.

    Good luck!

    Would recommend a combination of packing foods like whey protein and quest protein bars, as well as doing diligence on the areas you're going to (things like does the hotel serve oatmeal and egg whites, what restaurants are in town that will offer clean foods, etc.) It's never easy to travel and eat clean but one thing I've learned is that it takes a good deal of advanced planning.
