View Full Version : Raw Food on the Road
So here's a couple of questions.... we travel a LOT, and spend days camped at music festivals, and also go on trips like a cruise coming up in 3 weeks. The cruise will be providing vegan meals this year, and has a wealth of raw foods (though mostly salads & fruit - nuttin' fancy)but not organic.... the questions:
How does one stick to a raw diet traveling in a world of cooked food restaurants? Ice chest, cutting board & knife in the car? Supermarkets instead of restaurants? Is freeze-dried food considered raw?

i am on the road almost 365(exclude 4 weekends a year) i live out of hotels. i've recently started back up and i'm finding it really easy. and a lot cheaper than eating out every day.
i eat very simple raw foods. plain apples, etc. might make some guac for carrots today though. i don't even have a cutting board or knifes. i have a set of plain old utensils and some tupperware. whenever i know i'll be driving or on planes for a while i stock up with what i need because a lot of the time there are not raw foods around.
hope this helps...it's an interesting raw journey on the road..
Thanks, Voyager... I was thinking that would be the most likely answer.
I always get excited when I see a Jason's Deli, too.... some of them use organic foods on the salad bar.
We usually carry all the amenities... this year we even took a smoothie maker with us. It turned out to be a fabulous decision. At most of the festivals we can get organic and/or vegan foods, but a lot of it is cooked.

I just bought a set of those collapsable plastic containers for when we travel -- easy to throw in the car, useful for fixing up a great Todd's Waldorf or green salad. When we're on the road we buy local produce/fruit from stands when available, or from regular groc stores if there aren't any other options. Eat simple. We travel with a couple small cutting boards, 1 knife, a wooden mixing spoon for fixing food. If we have access to electricity, we take along our magic bullet. The easiest is to take soaked & dried nuts, raisins, dates, etc for snacking (or other dehydrated treats) -- eat fresh fruit & veges, and throw a salad together now and again. It's really pretty easy.
