Here are some tips that will help your waistlines as well as your waiters to know what you need on a cruise.5 Tips for Low Carb Meals on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line1.
Eat in the Dining Room We had a amazing service at our dinner table and after the first night our waiter memorized all our dietary preferences and didn’t need to ask us again which was very awesome! You will have a lot more control over your food choices when you eat in the dining room because your waiters will get to know you and they will accommodate gluten free much more easily. Fat is Phat When I did eat upstairs at the buffet I loved the omelet station where you picked out your own toppings. I brought my own butter from another part of the buffet the cook willingly obliged even letting me add smoked salmon to my omelet. I also used bottled olive oil on my salads that was provided by the salad bar in the dining room and the buffet. Sometimes I bring my own but I didn’t want to deal with bringing enough for a whole week. Fill up on seafoodWhile traveling on a cruise ship since I know the beef is all from CAFO’s (how to choose the best beef here) I figure it is a good time to eat more seafood even though I know most of it is probably farmed (spoiler alert).
It will be higher in omega 3 and full of selenium, zinc and even vitamin D that is in fish such as salmon.
Even if is farmed it will still be better that choosing all the craptastic carbs that are spewing like a firehose.
I think I will get my moneys worth by eating the fanciest food they have, thank you very much! Even though it is more of a land mollusk we had buttery snails with a garlic and egg topping every night and it was divine!
Steak Out While it is an upcharge just make sure and try the specialty steakhouse at least once. Where else can you eat in a steakhouse for less than $35 without tax that is all you can eat?
Also my husband got a big bone in veal chop while I enjoyed lamb chops which are more likely to be grass fed than beef.
Cream up your coffee:Searching for non-vegetable oil fats is a bit of a challenge on the ship. On our ship we found that the coffee shop in the middle would make lattes and Americano’s with steamed heavy cream which will keep your carbs down and your satisfaction up. They may have to go to another part of the ship to get it but they have it and will keep it there if people keep asking for it.
Atkins does say to go easy on the heavy cream in induction but hey, I was on vacation!I was so happy to get heavy cream in my lattes at the cafe. No not all the food was low carb but we were able to make our own choices (just like in life) but having other people there made it much easier to be conscientious of food choices. We spoke about how to incorporate the healthy aspects of the Mediterranean Diet( based on our book: Mediterranean Paleo Cooking) into your low carb lifestyle. We went into reasons why people would want to add seasonal foods and fatty fish while avoiding gluten, vegetable oil and artificial sweeteners. We also talked about cleaning out your bathroom cabinet and being mindful of what you put on your skin.Many people in the audience came up to us all week and said how our presentation resounded with them.
We had a great time hanging with The Caltons, Dietician Cassie, Emily Mcguire from the UK, and of course our MC Jimmy Moore. Justin and his wife Shelley and my good buddy Karen from Holistically Engineered, it was nice to sit with like minded people.
Ann Childers, also Tom Naughton is working on a project for kids about what real healthy food is, also Dr. Fox on fertility and Jackie Eberstien RN had a great talk on adrenals that was really forward. At home I averaged over 10,000 steps a day but on the cruise I was at 15,000 steps without any effort. I was tromping all over the ship and mostly avoided elevators becasue we hated waiting for them to arrive. We also danced on the deck and played table tennis and air hockey that all added to my totals.
3 times we went to the gym on the boat and we also got a lot of steps when we were in port. In Old San Juan Puerto Rico we walked around the whole city on foot which was very scenic and we felt like locals. It was nice to leave it up the to professional staff on the ship for a while and just forget about where my food came from for one week of the year. I know that 99% of the time I am eating organic, grass fed and pastured food so whatever I ate that week will surely get detoxed.
The main thing to remember is that stress kills too so just let go of the diet-tribe and relax while soaking up some much needed vitamin D. Sit back and enjoy the service and slower pace while basking in the moment.It is guaranteed you can return to your breakneck control freak life next week (am I talking to myself?
I later got on to work on our talk but it was so slow that I only used to to text others on the ship to meet up.
Save your money and don’t worry you can get back to your high speed next week! Any travel tips I have left out?
