I will be traveling on business this upcoming week. I am flying for the first time since my surgery (last September). For those that have done this, do you bring a magic bullet like product with you to blend your protein drinks and the like. I would appreciate any advice on this. The best thing for me is that I wil not be needing a seat bellt extension.

I found a small plastic cup like mixer that has an agitation paddle in it. I use it both at home as well as when I travel. It doesn't take up much room. I also found the protein powder that I use, Syntrax Nectar in "grab and go" packets which makes traveling very easy

Most of the time I just find a pharmacy once I get where I'm going and buy the Atkins ready-made shakes.  Most every pharmacy sells those.

I'm on a business trip right now.  I brought my blender bottle (The Vitamin Shoppe) and my protein indivdiually packaged and didn't have a problem because I can get bottled water easy.  I'm 2  months out and didn't have to ask for a seat belt extension.  On the negative side, I have been using pepto bismol for the last 4 days.  Eating out so much has not been easy. Luckily, I have a fridge in my room, so I bought greek yogurt and fruit.

Good luck.  Just be prepared.

Thanks Joanne. I will run over to the vitamin shoppe today. I already have my individual packs. The blender bottle sounds like the best idea. Congratulations on traveling so early on. I was a mess two months post op.
