Yummy in season fruits. Since it is summer there were tons of delicious choices and I packed,
I also packed some handy “junk” raw goodies like crackers and chips
Soaked and dehydrated almonds and walnuts
I brought lots of water as well as two mason jars filled with creamy smoothie
These goodies served us well until we got to the towns we were visiting, The first thing I do is check www.happycow.com for a trusty list of raw, vegan, vegetarian and veg friendly eateries in the area. Happy Cow has never failed me! We found a beaut of a little Raw restaurant in Saint Petersburg and another in the oldest city in the nation, Saint Augustine. What treats!
Outside of these, I find almost all restaurants offer ok salads which sometimes I enhance by throwing nuts, seeds or sprouts and since I eat a little cooked food a sweet baked potato or some vegan soup is often all it takes to make a nice meal, Plus, if you’re nice and ask politely waiters have no problem throwing in suggestions and helping you leave happy.
So all in all, I am happy to say Raw traveling was a snap! I will add, however, that since I’m a newby at this Raw thing, I did end up getting way too hungry in one of our car rides and found myself upset at my lack of planning on that particular day. My suggestion to anyone looking to travel Raw would be to go to a supermarket to refill your cooler regularly. Don’t ever be caught without sufficient fuel or you will, indeed, suffer!
It’s funny, though, on our way back home after our week of travels, I found myself biting into a whole cucumber, munching away happily while I drove… Who said Raw traveling was hard?
