For many winter snowbirds, it's time again for the annual RV seasonal escape from the cold winter months in the northern states. The road trip down and settling in to your selected destination involves a lot of fun cutting loose from the usual routine and putting together a healthful menu may be the last thing on your mind.
Eating wholesome food on your vacation starts with doing a little bit of nutritious meal planning. You will add variety to your menu that will provide plenty of energy for all of the fun activities you are about to enjoy!
Want to grill up a great dinner? Try using an aluminum foil pouch as an alternative that can enhance flavor and seal in nutrients.
Vegetable blends, potatoes, and even meats can be sealed into a pouch and thrown on the grill. The pouch locks in moisture and steam, cooking food at a more even temperature. Make your pouches ahead of time at home and add some herbs and/or marinade for a flavor punch when you finally cook up your meals.
Having to spend time prepping lunches and dinners during your RVing trip can be a downer – it eats into your free time that is better spent having fun with friends! Instead, prep your meals before you go.
Stock your refrigerator with frozen vegetables and pre-made meals. The frozen veggies will help keep your food cold for on-the-go trips and you can pull meals together quickly to heat and serve as hunger pops up during activities and adventures.
