A little planning ahead can go a long way towards making your road trip more enjoyable.
Eating a varied cuisine on the road can be a challenge – but the fact that you’re away from all the conveniences of your own kitchen, doesn’t mean you have to settle for eating freeze dried meals, canned entrees and “just add hot water “ foods like ramen and oatmeal. Don’t be afraid to go beyond the standard staples like cereal, cold cuts or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and, of course, hamburgers and hot dogs. Although these foods are reliable standbys, they should complement your meal plans, not be your only choices. It’s easy to enjoy a wide variety of foods on the road, as long as you are prepared.
The real trick to enjoying great meals on the road is to do as much prep work at home as possible before you leave so you can make sure mealtime isn’t boring or predictable. Doing your prep work in advance will also help you cut down on the handling of raw foods and help you minimize the hassle and mess of cooking when you’re on the road.
