Tips for Eating Raw While Traveling: Raw Survival Kit

If you want to stay raw on a holiday or business trip, you can make your life easy by packing a ‘raw survival kit’. This kit will enable you to enjoy tasty raw meals and snacks when everyone else is obliged to eat fatty fast food or microwaved airplane food. Now you will never need to feel hungry or deprived while traveling again!

The content of your raw survival kit will depend on several factors, such as the length of your travel, the destination and the means of transport. When you’re traveling by car, it is easy to pack green smoothies and other liquids, as well as knives and plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. If, however, you are traveling by plane, it is vital that you select a lightweight and easily portable soft-sided cooler bag that will meet airline standards to store your selection of raw foods and travel equipment. You won’t be able to bring knives or liquids onto the plane, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a nice raw breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are plenty of possibilities to create satisfying raw meals while traveling by plane. These are some of the foods I like to bring on a trip to stay successfully raw while traveling:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables, such as cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, celery, avocado, apples, bananas, pears, oranges, grapes…
  • Dried fruits, such as raisins, dates, figs, apricots, goji berries…
  • Raw Energy Bars
  • Seasoned nuts and seeds
  • Dehydrated goodies, such as crackers, raw bread, veggie chips, nori bites, granola, cookies…
  • Herbal and Green Tea Bags
  • Wheat Grass powder

Depending on the destination and the length of your trip, these are some other foods you could take with you:

  • Green super food powder, such as Vitamineral Greens
  • Hemp protein powder
  • Probiotic supplement
  • Coconut butter
  • Almond butter or any other type of your favorite nut butter
  • Chia seeds
  • Dulse flakes and nori sheets
  • Himalayan crystal salt
  • Stevia

This Raw Food Equipment will certainly come in handy during your trip:

  • Cloth or paper napkins
  • Wooden or Plastic Spoon, Knife and Fork
  • Wooden plate or bowl: for eating and mixing salads and dressings
  • Personal Blender made of lightweight plastic, such as a Magic Bullet: for making juices, smoothies and nut milks
