Tools For Traveling Raw
When you choose to eat plant based foods (be it uncooked or not), you want to do everything to stick to your lifestyle.
Traveling -especially long distance- can sometimes throw some dirt in your good intending.
Your flight was successful, meaning; you fasted or enjoyed your own meal prepared with love at home. But now your stay starts and you have to be fit for a conference, for work, a book tour, performances on stage as a speaker or musician.
But how? These easy-to-take tools will make your healthy life abroad just as exciting and successful as at home.
A wonderful must-have tool to keep up with your green morning routines -wherever you go- is a personal blender. I love my Tribest and it has proven many times that you don’t need much more to make your beloved smoothies and tasty dressings on the go. This light weight is small enough to fill up a corner in your suitcase.
Don't take this blender in your hand luggage on a flight. That's what I once did to make sure I wouldn’t lose it and I almost had to leave it behind at customs because of the blade. No idea they would consider this as a possible threat for the passengers safety!
A good personal blender crushes ice in your smoothies, nuts into flour. Fixing a salad? Complete it with a savoury dressing or guacamole in only a few minutes. Or create a hearty Marinara sauce with local tastes. Crave a chocolate mousse? No matter where you are -even in a small hotel room- this versatile blender can make your meals just as complete as in the comfort of your house. Cleaning is a breeze, even with limited means.
POTATO OR JULIENNE PEELER
Another favorite tool of mine on travels is a potato or a julienne peeler. It is so small and light that you can even take it in your purse to improvise a meal after visiting a local farmers market. In only one minute you can slice a zucchini into a lovely pasta. I love this little tool and you will appreciate its easy use and cleaning. Again, this tool has a blade and has to be taken in your suitcase during flying.
A KNIFE AND A SMALL PLIABLE CUTTING BOARD
It might look obvious but how many times didn’t you wish you had your knife and a light weight cutting board with you? You will find a plastic plate and cup in most hotel rooms but when you want to make a quick fruit- or other salad, those tools are handy. A one person (pliable) cutting board is light and will serve you on many occasions.
With these simple tools you can easily stay on track and prepare all your meals on the go. Take a few containers with you, a small one for a dressing and a larger one for a salad and you will be able to take whatever you need to eat raw without effort. As you can see in the image below, it worked out fine for me during touring with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra as their European Coordinator...
