How To Cook While Traveling
Ah, traveling vs. the battle of the bulge. Or for some who follow restricted diets, like me, travel can sometimes be off limits. But fret no more as here are a few of my favorite tips and tricks on how you can travel, despite any dietary restrictions, by whipping up easy meals in your hotel room to save your figure and your cash!
- Make your hotel room coffee pot your friend! It’s not just for coffee anymore! Pack miso soup packets or stock up on canned beans and/or soups at the local convenience store or market and heat up quick and healthy dinners in the comfort of your hotel room. This way you not only save time and money but you are sure to eat well before running out for a day of adventure.
- Don’t cut out your cutting board! Yep, pack a thin, silicone cutting board and load up on local fruits and veggies so that you can chop up and pack for healthy snacks while on the go. Whipping up a quick salsa to eat with carrots or chips or even mashing up some chick peas for hummus is easier to do in your hotel room then you think!
- Slice and dice! Pack a small knife in your checked baggage so that you can chop fresh fruit and veggies for salads, salsas and more.
- Ice bucket, don’t chuck it! Use the ice bucket as a mixing bowl and the ice tongs to toss dressings and sauces into salads, noodles, etc.
