View Full Version : Travel tip...Anybody have any others?
09-06-2007, 10:58 AM
Thought that I would share some of my thoughts and perhaps tips for staying raw while travelling....I hope that you will have others to share.
I travel a lot and sometimes stay in a hotel room for several days. I usually ask for a room with a small dorm type fridge...I usually stop at some store to pick up some fruits and veggies before I check in.
I have already purchased a travel accessory kit with empty plastic containers and filled the bottles with olive oil, agave, apple cider vinegar, nama shoyu, maca, hemp protein. This helps to make a greater variety of salads and dishes.
I am contemplating the purchase of one of those small individual "bullet-type" blenders to carry with me in my suitcase for green smoothies.
With a small bullet blender and travelling food kit, I could make green smoothies, wherever I am...
I’m not a perfect person….I found a reason for me to change who I used to be….a reason to start over new…and the reason is… me.

So far your doing exactly what I have on the few occasions I traveled while eating 100% raw.
I have a magic bullet blender that I used a couple of times before I bought a vita mix. Now I don't use it and was trying to sell it on Craigslist until the idea popped into my head to use it as a travel blender. So perfect for that!
Thanks for sharing. Not sure what I can add other than I love to try to find local raw restaurants too. They're not always available.
I admire your tenacity to stick with it. Traveling makes it even more difficult.
Good on ya!

I haven't been on a trip since eating raw, but I didn't think of bringing a magic bullet to a hotel! Good idea! :)

Hotel rooms aren't usually hard for me, fruit is available at local grocers and restaurants have salads. I was also considering the bullet. But the getting there. . . not all airports have fruit/salad opportunities.
Suggestions for getting there?

believe it or not, the newsstand at DFW had "RAW" trail mix...It probably wasn't germinated, but it was pretty good....

I'll be flying in a month and a half and I really would love to bring my blender...I was thinking it wouldn't be allowed because of the blade ??
I don't want to check any bags, I just want to carry on.
And also, when they x-ray the bags, that effects the food right? Doesn't it get "cooked" in a sense?
I have a feeling I'm going to be shipping a few things instead of taking them with me :p

If you dehydrate, for traveling I make a batch of seasoned sunnies or almonds (marinate in nama shoyu or Bragg's, then dehydrate until crunchy), take some dried fruit, I try to have some portable sprouts with me (hemp bag or the like) and always some raw salad dressing. You can get salad anywhere, just add your own dressing and some sunnies or almonds and sprouts for a complete meal. Also you can make some so-called "energy bars" ahead of time in the dehydrator for snacking in the airports and for emergencies. I usually buy organic spring mix at my destination and store it in the hotel fridge. If I'm driving, I bring everything I need in an ice chest. You have to make a committment and plan ahead, but traveling raw can be done comfortably, for the most part. I think the social part of it is what's tough. People don't always want to make dietary allowances for the wierd one, and you end up in a restaurant that serves nothing you can eat. However, drinking water with lime or lemon until you can get to your "stash" wont kill you!
