GET A QUOTE

One of the seldomly talked about topics is what you should eat on a moving day. This is actually really important, as it can set the tone for the entire relocation. So, after you arrange things with your California movers, the next thing you might want to consider is creating a moving day food plan. You will need to consider every meal carefully, ensuring that you get the proper nutrition for the day. Once you get to the dinner, however, you can relax the restrictions a bit and treat yourself to something you really like. But the breakfast and lunch really need to follow some specific guidelines. Apart from that, we will be covering some practical tips such as preparing some food and snacks for your friends and movers alike.

How to prepare for the moving day – Moving day food plan

Here is how your food plan might look like, in its inception:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
  • Prepare food for friends and movers
  • Provide a lot of snacks
  • Prepare food for the trip
  • Always stay hydrated!

You can even make a small checklist where you will list all the ingredients that you will need. It will make it easier to prepare food for yourself and your Los Angeles interstate movers. Of course, starting early is always a good idea.

Moving day food plan – Breakfast

Alright, let’s start with the “most important meal of the day”. What you eat for breakfast will highly influence your energy levels throughout the day. Therefore, consider having one or more of the following for breakfast:

  • Cereals/Oatmeal
  • Pastry goods
  • Eggs
  • Cheese toast

All of these suggestions will provide you with plenty of energy for your relocation. It is also worth noting that your breakfast on a moving day needs to be simple. You will not have all (or any) of your regular cooking implements, after all. That is why all of the above suggestions are really simple in nature. You can even order some pastries for your movers California to Florida, too, they will really appreciate the gesture. Everyone loves fresh pastries, after all! But do consider adding some eggs to your breakfast, as they provide literally everything that your body needs. They are a veritable “superfood” for us humans. In fact, if you have eggs for every breakfast you are going to feel a lot better.

Moving day food plan for lunch

Alright, moving on to the second most important meal of the day. You have a lot more flexibility here, as there are plenty of dishes that are perfectly suitable for the occasion. Here is what you might want to consider:

  • Salads
  • Sandwiches
  • Lasagna
  • Spaghetti
  • Pre-made meals

Sandwiches are the easiest to make of the lot, of course. You can even prepare them ahead of time so you don’t need to worry about preparing lunch. But if you are near a restaurant, a good lasagna will fill your belly and provide you with plenty of energy for the trials ahead. On that note, so will spaghetti! The last option is various pre-made meals that you can purchase or prepare beforehand. But if you ask moving companies West Hollywood about their favorite option, it is going to be a salad, of course. It is light on the stomach, which will make it easier for you to continue with your moving efforts straight away. And it is definitely the healthiest of the bunch.

What you should have for dinner?

Once you finally make it to dinner, you have two amazing options. It is time to reward yourself and:

  • Head to the restaurant
  • Order food

The main principle is to not prepare the food on your own. You have been doing a lot of work, went through a lot, you deserve a reprieve. Therefore, a restaurant is an amazing option to sit back, relax, and unwind. But if you find the idea of going to a restaurant to be overly tiring, feel free to order food. In fact, this might very well be your best option. There are few things better than relaxing in your new home and having food delivered to you. Furthermore, if you happen to be living in times of a pandemic, it may be your only option.

Prepare food for friends and movers

Now, let’s talk a bit about how you might enhance the moving experience for your friends and movers alike. The best way to do so is to prepare plenty of food to go around. You don’t need to create any elaborate dishes, though. You can simply just make more of what you make for yourself.

Provide a lot of snacks

Sometimes, both you and your movers might not have the time to sit down and eat properly. However, that does not mean that you will not need a bit of nutrition here and there. Therefore, you will want to ensure that there are plenty of easy-to-grab snacks around. They will serve as a great buffer between breakfast and lunch, as well. Just make sure that you don’t take out an overwhelming amount, as that might lead to overindulgence which may then lead to sub-optimal body performance.

Prepare food for the trip

While you are preparing all the food and snacks for the moving day, make sure to prepare some for the road as well. Again, sandwiches are perfect for this occasion, as are pastries. However, if you don’t have enough time and plan on visiting a few gas stops on the way, you can even get away without preparing anything. But having some food with you might make you enjoy your trip more.

Always stay hydrated!

Last but not least, always remember to properly hydrate! Always make sure that you are drinking enough fluids, as they are vital for our body’s functions. Your body will be under a lot of stress during your relocation, it is vital to ensure that it gets enough hydration.
