In my Swami I can have a glass of white wine.. I chose not to.. I have chocolate instead.
For eggs: I ate 2 eggs for breakfast for 30 years or more. Now I eat 1 egg for breakfast. I cut down on food as I got older now, so one egg has to be enough. Yes egg white is diamond super, 2 egg whites and 1 yellow would be ideal, but I can not throw the second yolk out, so I eat it or leave it of.
I have no bread stuff with it, I can have sweet potato fries, but also just a few is more than enough. It is all in the SELF training.
Having meat does not mean mountains of it.. but often some of it. Travel is hard.. one really needs to learn it. A small electric fry pan helps to make a small steak and a few veggies. saves me from over doing where there is to much other good LOOKING food.
Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
When I'm traveling, I make the best choices possible... If eating more eggs is the best choice, I'll do that anytime, rather than eat an avoid... If I need to make some adjustment when I'm back home, I'll do it...

Yes, we can have red wine.
IMO, it's better to "eat enough animal protein" than it is to be super-careful about the ratio between eggs, red meat, poultry, and fish. If your options are eggs or carbs, go ahead and eat as many eggs as you need to feel full. I don't think there's any benefit to eating egg whites as opposed to whole eggs.
Are you talking about hotel breakfasts when you say there are no other protien options? Because it's usually easy to get meat, poultry, or fish at lunch and dinner. Another breakfast option is to pack canned fish if you want to eat fewer eggs- have the fish in your hotel room some days and the eggs on other days.

I don't eat eggs much (being part Explorer genotype) & managed to get the chef at a hotel we stayed in, to make me lambchops for breakfast He even went to the extra effort of cooking compatible vegs to go with them It is all about giving enough notice for them to be prepared?!
Boiled eggs are my favourite food-on-hand for a road trip.
I would worry more about exceeding the allotment of eggs for the month than exceeding the allotment for just one week. Just eat less the next week and achieve a dynamic balance over those two weeks. This will be more difficult if your travel is often unexpected.
Unprocessed meat is often available in buffet - just watch for any dip, sauce, side or condiment.
Burger with no bun or condiments, but lots of vegetables is usually a reasonable compromise - if the quality of the meat is good.
Red wine is your alcoholic friend if you are not an alcoholic, and not taking medication that is not incompatible with it. All those health benefits of moderate alcohol consumption are for non-secretors to enjoy especially (a nice treat in the face of difficulties of being an nonnie).
Chefs like to be appreciated; letting them know as much ahead of time as circumstances permit of your polite request, elicits amazing responces.
