Eating Raw Foods While Traveling or Going Out to Eat
Eating vegan raw foods while traveling and going out to eat is something you just get used to and becomes part of your life. For Raw Food Delivery Services Go Here...I went to India and Singapore for a month. The traveling pictures on this page are from this trip. Please visit
my Trip To India site
if you want to see the thousands of incredible images! Before I left I prepared two dehydrated goods to take with me: flax crackers and sweet zucchini bread. These two items lasted the whole trip.
I didn't end up eating them all because traveling is dehydrating and so is dehydrated food! Nevertheless, they did very much help me get through the trip, and I ate one flax cracker with Artisana coconut butter almost every day. The good thing about traveling in Asia is that there is a lot of fruit stands. In India we had
to soak everything to kill microbes before eating it, and you can still only eat fruit you can peel. Singapore was a haven though of fresh durian, coconuts, and lychee; and we didn't have to soak it there! I took one whole suitcase of food items for India
though. Here is a list of what I took:
Soaked, dehydrated pumpkin seeds
Goji BerriesA bag of Macadamia NutsOne jar of Artisana Coconut ButterCoconut Oil
Green Superfood PowderFruit Antioxidant/Superfood Liquid Supplement with minerals and whole food vitaminsTocotrienols Rice Bran PowderChia SeedsBag of Wakame Seaweed
(I would order boiled vegetable broth and put this in it with some coconut oil and chia seeds that I kept in a little vial in my backpack and this would be my meal many days!) Spirulina tablets and Enzyme tablets
Whole Food Vitamin C tablets6 little commercial juice boxes of Coconut Water (not too heavy if you just take a few) Hemp Protein PowderTravel container of Celtic Sea Salt (now I would take Pink Himalayan Salt)Dried MulberriesRaw Cacao Nibs
which kept me healthy throughout toxic India! Even when I accidentally ingested some microbe-full water and threw up all night, the NCD had me back on my feet the next night, able to go to a music concert,
and fine by the next day!Fresh Herbal Tea bags and a squirt bottle of Stevia Glycerite
Other good traveling ideas
If you are going on a shorter trip within the country you can bring non-squishable fruits like
Cucumbers, Apples, Grapefruits, and un-ripe Avocados that will ripen during your tripBring some soaked dehydrated Almonds or any of your favorite nutsAll organic dried fruits are greatWhen I went to Vegas for a week I
packed my blender in the car and made smoothies every morning in my hotel room. This got me through the whole day until dinner at a raw restaurant! Himalayan Pink Crystal SaltSome sprouted dehydrated quinoa and/or buckwheat groats
to sprinkle on saladsMake a dehydrated granola and bring some little containers of coconut water from whole foods. I went to an intense month-long workshop in Massachusetts and I took two large plastic water bottles of almond milk that got me through the first week and 2 big bags of my famous grain-less granola. By the fourth week, when I had exhausted most of my healthy food options, I called my friend Matt at Rawvolution and had him send me a huge box of his raw food. For Rawvolution and other Raw Food Delivery Services Go Here...They will send this anywhere in the country I think, so plan to do this next time you have a week away somewhere! I can't even tell you how awesome it was to get a huge bag of organic mixed greens from California! His food got me through the last week.Make some "Nori Bites" in your dehydrator by cutting raw nori in squares and spreading a zesty nut pate on them, and dehydrating over night or until totally dry. These will last on any trip and
are easy to take in a suitcase in plastic bags or plastic tupperware if you are worried about them getting broken to pieces!When I took a family trip to Canada for a week I made a huge raw coconut cream pie, and I mean huge, in one of those big
glass brownie pans, and I brought the whole thing with me. I even ate some on the plane!

For Going Out To Eat At Non-Vegetarian, Non-Raw Restaurants
Sneak in your own salad dressing! Go to an Italian restaurant
and order olive oil and a slice of lemon with a salad. You can ask for pine nuts, olives, tomatoes, and all sorts of vegetables on the salad. They often time have some interesting lettuces too like endive sometimes delicious olive oil marinated in garlic.
Yum! Bring a Dulse container with you in your purse, bag, or pocket, and sprinkle it all over your salad. Always have a
vial of Pink Crystal Salt in your bag/purse or car if you are a healthy eater. Order the fresh fruit dessert. Mexican places always have avocados and guacamole, just beware of any dairy additives and of course refined salt.
Salsa is often an excellent raw dish as well at Mexican places. The most expensive restaurants usually have the most selection of higher quality vegetables and salad items that they can creatively put together for you and they will
sometimes have things like gazpacho.If you are really hungry and in need of something comforting and there just simply isn't any raw food, or you're in India where you can't eat raw food, then order a plain hot vegetable soup and bring
your own wakame, coconut oil, salt, and even seeds, and you have a full meal. Even without all these additions, a plain pureed vegan vegetable soup is sometimes available at nice Italian restaurants, or at the very least a mediocre vegan vegetable
soup without a lot of starches in it. Finally, you can always order "LIGHTLY steamed vegetables please." And order a half of a lemon and some olive oil to put on top. This way you'll still get a little nutrition as well as a nice "broom"
for your colon! ...and don't forget those dulse flakes you brought in!
I think every restaurant should serve at least one raw food dish! Maybe we can be the teachers who teach our favorite community restaurants at least one raw meal so we can actually eat there!
