View Full Version : Raw Food On The Road Travel List >>>
05-10-2005, 01:05 AM
I'm going on a two week road trip with two other people who eat fastfood.
They laugh teasingly and tell me how I'll soon be eating buckets of chicken, hamburgers and french fries from drive-thrus with them! :eek: :rolleyes:
That's very funny - I haven't eaten fast food in seven years - and I eat raw foods - so there is no chance of this happening - to be sure! - I couldn't be tempted in the least! :cool:
anyway- getting to my question....
....What unperishable foods could I make a bunch of in advance to keep in the little cooler in the hot van??? We will be traveling in the heat of July and staying in a different (less expensive) hotel everyday - I will likely be eating at grocery stores and... in the van - lots of driving - from Dallas to Boston and back... I can't wait! :)

A couple of weeks ago, Autumn, a long-time member, started a thread on this before she left on a trip.
If you read through that thread, you should have all the suggestions you need!
Have fun ... and prove 'em wrong!!

I think raw granola would be a great travel food! ;)

Good Luck on your trip. I'm actually taking a trip in July to Idaho. So when you get back I'll take all the advice I can get. In turn, when I get back we can share thoughts.
Raw Truth how do you make that banana orgasmic ice cream you talked about on another link?

Dump a bunch of frozen banana slices in a processor (for this,I use one of the small ones where the motor is in the handle, because I'm making it for one person -- though it's closer to 2 servings, yummy). You add a bit of warm/hot water to get things going and you process it till it emulsifies. You may have to keep pushing it down every once in a while. There should be no discernable banana pieces in it. Then, for the Butter Pecan Ice Cream, you drizzle in some honey, add vanilla, salt, and toss in some pecans and pulse a bit. (There's a more formal recipe on here somewhere.)
I veer off from this after I whirl up the bananas. I might grind some cacao nibs and add that powder in along with carob powder and some nuts. Or ... I've stirred in some big raw granola chunks along with some nuts. Or, I cut up some purchased raw cookies and stirred those in along with some nuts. (Ya can tell that when I make this, I like it crunchy and nutty, huh -- I used to be a fool for those ice cream mix-in shops!). This is where I make an exception in food combining and purposefully mix nuts with fruit. It's when I have a dessert craving and figure it's better this than some SAD dessert.
But ... here's something even better. It's a thread from last month on it. All you have to do is type in your search string in the search box. There's way more ideas here:
As I read it, I see that several of them use stevia. I don't -- I use agave nectar if I want it any sweeter. I only do that if I add carob or cacoa, though. I think the bananas are plenty sweet by themselves -- if you freeze fully ripe ones with lots of brown speckles. Oh! And ... even though some use a juicer with a blank attachment, a food processor is just fine.
Have fun ... and enjoy!

Well, all I can say if I were going to be on the road with two fast food people in a van in July, is that I would take massive amounts of raw dehydrated crackers.
I could buy all the fruits and veggies I wanted, so I wouldn't worry about that.
Iam assuming that you won't have any refridgerator because you will be in inexpensive hotels.
But I might really consider taking a small excalibur dehydrator the 4 tray, and a hand held blender.
or maybe one of those salsa non-electric gadgets, that is like a mini food processor but uses no electricity.
It isn't very big.
there is a guy who is taking a 3000 mile hike with only a back pack, and he is taking a mini sprouter with him.
You might consider this also.
Anyway, probably what you will find, is that they want to eat all of your food, and not so much of theirs, as they see fresh ripe succulent strawberries, and cool crisp yummy green grapes, fresh fruits, cool crips celery, carrots, and peaches, plums, etc.

Raw Priestess - you are probably right about my traveling companions wanting to eat all of the raw food that I pack and not their intended fastfood - ha-ha- that's funny! But it's true - all of my friends eat standard American diets... BUT they absolutely LOVE the raw foods that I make too - it really doesn't seem to make a difference to them whether it is "raw" or not- it's just something else that they like... so I slip'em some samples to take home and recipes to try out on their own- I mean you never know -they might go "Raw" too! ;)
