Top 5 Travel Tips.

Raw Food Travel Tip 1 – Local Health Store

First, look in the yellow pages for the nearest health store. (You could do this on-line too if you have internet access). Of course an organic farm or any other place where you can buy fresh organic produce will do.

Second, find out how to get to the store. I had a rental car and only needed a map to look up directions. Alternatively, you can take a taxi, bus, or ask the hotel host.

Third, take a travel shopping list. I always carry shopping lists with me. I have one specially for travel. Here’s a brief one:

  • Lemon;
  • Avocado;
  • Cucumber;
  • Spagetti squash;
  • Sun dried Tomatos;
  • Basil or fresh Pesto;
  • Coconut;
  • Lettuce/Cabbage;
  • Seaweed;
  • Water;
  • Bananas;
  • Raisins;
  • Fresh local fruits;
  • Fresh local vegetables.

Thus prepared, you go to the store and buy the necessary foods for a raw food survival.

Raw Food Travel Tip 2 – Bring Super Foods

Use a container for baby formula from Avent to carry super foods during travel. It has three different compartments for baby formula. You fill them with whole superfood powders.

The first, I fill with a mixture of green powder and blue green algea.

The second and third, I fill with my mixture of super foods (raw chocolate, macca, bee pollen, msm, etc.)

Using the Avent container you can easily make yourself a super drink. You’ll just need water. No spoon needed. No mess.

Raw Food Travel Tip 3 – Pack Raw Snacks

Bringing raw snack food is a must. I always bring hulled hemp seed, sea weed and goji berries in a zip lock bag. This way, I aways have something quick and easy handy.

I love the hemp seed because this seed doesn’t need soaking before eating and it’s an excellent sourse of raw protein and healthy fats. Sea weed and goji berries are full of minerals and easy to bring along too.

Other suggestions are raw nuts, trail mix, dehydrated snacks (cookies, granola, crackers) or Larabars.

I love cabage. I often bring a zip lock bag with shredded cabbage. It keeps well and you can eat it as is, or mix with avocado and lemon for a great quick salad.

For my kids (1 and 6 years old) I bring:

  • Raw lemonade;
  • Bananas;
  • Raisins;
  • Nori seaweed;
  • Raw crackers/cookies, and/or
  • Larabars.

Raw Food Travel Tip 4 – Important Equipment

I like to travel light. Bring only the minimum. No big juicer or blender. I only bring these two:

  • Water bottle;
  • Pocket knife.

For longer travels also bring:

  • Cup;
  • Spoon (for mixin);
  • Hand blender (i.e. Kitchen Aid);
  • Juilienne peeler (for quickly making pasta strings out of squash);
  • Hand juicer.

Raw Food Travel Tip 5 – Must Bring Along

When you bring these too, you can truly make yourselves gourmet food on your trip.

Stevia

My favorite sweetener. Small and easy to carry with you. You can make your own alkalizing raw lemonade with fresh lemons. Or your own quick tomato pasta sauce.

Olive Oil

With a high quality of extra virgin olive oil you can always make your own salad dressing with some leomon. I bring a small travel bottle. Sometimes I pre-mix my salad dressing.

Himalya Sea Salt

I sometimes have to cook for family members that aren’t 100% raw, like my husband or oldest daughter. If I do, I always like to add my own high quality Himalaya sea salt so I don’t have to use cheap table salt.

Purified Water

I don’t like to ever be without high quality drinking water, so I always bring some bottles filled with my own filtered water. At least for the travel itself. Once at your destination, you can buy acceptable drinking water at most places.
