View Full Version : If you could only take one appliance.....
Okay, I''m going to Atlanta on Wednesday and aside from camping, I haven't traveled raw yet. My mom got me that little blender, called Tribest personal blender. If you could only take one of your appliances with for a week stay somewhere, what would it be? I'm glad I am familiar with Atlanta, atleast the parts I can remember. Can you travel with food nowadays? What happens if food goes through the xray machine thingy?

I would take the blender, smoothies, soup, juice with ice for frosty, almond milk - does that help.
I was told by my mom the radiologist that the machines in airports have a small amount of radiation that it really doesn't cause damage to our things, children or pregnant women. Now, when I said does it bother everything else, she gave me the mother look which meant -Be quite sweetie. So it appears to be not to be a problem.

I don't know about the rules there, but I know in CA you can not take fruit on the plane because of the concern of fruit fly contamination... they made my brother leave an entire bag of persimmons at the security counter- they probably got thrown out :( I know you can't have an ice chest with ICE in it- you have to use cold packs. So I'm sure anything that would last with the cold packs would be okay- I would just wrap any liquid things in several plastic bags so they don't get worried about leakage... just to be safe.
If I could take one appliance, I would take the blender too- just because smoothies are so filling and easy to make and the ingredients are easy to find anywhere- making less for you to have to carry with you...
Have fun on your trip! I hope that everything goes well!

I have heard also that you can't take fruit or veggies on planes, but you can take dehydrated food packed in sealed plastic bags-
I would take the blender, too... and ground flax, vanilla, etc. or anything else you might want to put in your smoothies (that you can prepare in advance).
If you are at a hotel and they have a continental breakfast, you can always take fruit to your room, get ice from the ice machine, and make a smoothie, or you can go get some veggies from the store and make raw soup in your room- if you take some dehydrated crackers or bread, you could have a really nice meal!
Have a great trip! :D
I'm glad to know about the food. I wondered about that, I've seen airport dogs sniffing bags before- dont want anyone to take my fruit and veggies! I will make some crackers and stuff and I think it's right on to take the little blender- most versatile and not so bulky and heavy.
Sweet Lips- I know that mom look by the way.... in fact, I think I use it now. Hmmmmm.

Oh.......of course my electric nose hair clippers.
I'm in the same mind as everyone whose already posted.
I would take lots of dehydrated snacks(crackers, fruits, vege chips etc..), ground flax..
The blender would be my first choice too.

I would have to also say my blender. I was gonna say food processor, but I think the blender would be best for soups, smoothies, salad dressings and more!

I would for sure take the blender. It depends where you travel if you can take food. I use to be an airport screener and we were told that it does damage the structure of the fruit, taking away the vits and enzymes

I'd take my juicer, I really can live without my morning veggie juice.

P.S just remember that they tell you an xray at the hospital won't hurt you either lol

I can't live without my juicer. A whole week without it would be almost impossible for me.
