Hey there! So we’re 3 days into our vacation and 2 grocery store trips. I thought I’d share with you what works for us when it comes to staying clean on a trip. This time around we’re feeding 10, so efficiency, cost & bulk are paramount. Anything we can bring to save money for fun stuff is a must!
This trip happens to be a road trip, so it does make it a little easier to bring refrigerated goods, but the list of non perishables can be packed into a luggage and checked with the rest of your bags.
Just before we left, I raided the cabinets. I couldn’t do it any earlier because these items are things in my usual rotation. Here’s my list of staples for any day, any trip:Quinoa, brown rice, jasmine rice Flax & chia seeds Oatmeal Plain whey protein (good with any mixers) Rice cakes Assorted nuts Kamut flatbread Farro pastas Buckwheat pancake mix whole grain breads Hibiscus leaves – for iced hibiscus tea Rishi sencha green tea packets for bottled waters at the beach Coconut water Fish oil pills flax oil & EVOO agave nectar – for pancakes & tea stone ground mustard
As tired as we were, as soon as we unloaded the vehicles and unpacked, we headed to the grocery store. It was the best move we could do. We were ready to go for the next few days. Here’s what we purchased:Chobani Kashi autumn wheat cereal skim milk better than bouillon reduced sodium chicken stock chicken breast lean ground beef cottage cheese salad greens eggs & egg whites hummus assorted beans avocados assorted frozen veg, fresh veg & fresh herbs bananas, cherries, watermelon & strawberries potatoes, onion & garlic canned tomatoes & tomato paste sea salt & pepper
Here are some of the great meals we’ve made so far:
