Raw Food and Travel

I am off to Boulder to see my wonderful daughter and meet some new people interested in raw. I also plan to relax and enjoy the mountain air. As I pack for the trip, I also am preparing so I can stay mostly raw while traveling. I have a few travel tricks that I would like to share with you.




As you know, green drinks are an important part of a raw food diet. Since I can’t walk into a restaurant and say, “Could you throw some greens and fruit in a blender for me” without striking fear in the wait staff (I have tried), I now travel with my little personal blender. It is about the size of a coffee grinder, doesn’t weigh that much and honestly, simplifies my traveling immensely. It is very easy to have room service to bring up some greens and fruit. I throw it in the little blender and immediately have my daily green drink. Start your day with that and you won’t be as tempted to partake in the unhealthy alternatives that are all around you.

I also make traveling snacks to take along. I am much less likely to grab something unhealthy if I have something healthy at my finger tips. The flat breads are light and travel easily. You can grab an avocado, tomato and some sprouts and make a meal. Quick, easy and inexpensive. I am making some truffle cookies to take with. Dried fruit and nuts or raw granola are also good alternatives to pack.

Find restaurants that serve healthy food, and choose your meals carefully. All in all, it isn’t that difficult to eat well on the road. Click on “continue” for the Cinnamon Ginger Truffles recipe.

    How much Cacao would I put in to make them chocolate flavored?

      You could try 1/4 C. but watch your other ingredients, also. You are adding something dry, you might have to compensate.

    Tell us more about this mini blender. Sounds like I might have cupboard room for something like that. Maybe a link to where it can be bought?
