When I am done with my 100% raw for 30 days, I want to stick with raw as much as possible. I have a business trip coming up at the end of the month and am wondeing the best advice on taking food with me. I have to bring an empty suitcase with me anyways, so i have room for food and water. What would travel the best?
At first I wanted to make a few salads, fruit salads and raw spaghetti to take with me, but now I wonder if they will keep. What stuff should I take and what stuff should I get when I get there? What have you all done when traveling by air and staying in a hotel? I am not sure how easy it will be to get to a store once I get there.
Hi, we travel a lot. Where are you going? What kind of hotel and what will you have in your room?
Eating raw while traveling can be very very easy, almost easier then being at home. The hard part is resisting all the not raw food, especially in different cultures where they have such a variety of interesting foods.
I always suggest visiting www.happycow.com and when you get there ask the locals for health food stores and juice places.

I like to keep Pure Bars with me me ... www.thepurebar.com. You can also make yourself some trail mix with nuts and dried fruits etc.

I never have had a problem. There have been no places in the US or abroad that I have had a problem scoring fresh, local produce....often within walking distance of wherever I am staying. When you don't have a fridge, just put your produce in a garbage bag, and place in a sink or bathtub. It will stay cool for a good long time!
-When you leave your room, just keep a snack bag of nice cool apples, nuts, carrots, or whatever you like to snack on! No worries - eh?

I went to Philcon a few months ago and brought a jar of olives and some fruit with me. While I was there, someone took me to a store where I bought some fruit and veggies.

I travel quite often for business and don't really bring much, just food for the plane and some snacks at the hotel. I have never been anywhere, where I could not find a grocery store to stock up. I really handy thing to have is a portable blender or a juicer. If you are going somewhere really small research a head of time to see what the vital things you eat are and what they have and don't.
I am going to London, in a couple of days I am going to have a organic box delivered to my hotel room probably just the fruit box with some washed carrots and tomatoes and of course greens. Easy to store and lasting.
