Take a day off and fast. It's not too hard and great for the body's health. You're sure to appreciate the food options more, and the fact that we even have food options.
If that's not possible, try having a handful of nuts or a fruit to satiate your hunger- you'll be surprised how little you need to get by, and you'll be sure to eat whatever you're rolling past at the next meal.

Part of the fun of an RV is trying different foods. Local grocery stores, farmers markets, etc. are great ways to try local and/or ethnic new favorites. You can probably find any recipe you want might want on the internet. Eat out? Doesn't that mean put the chairs outside? [emoticon]

I'm not physically able to stand for long and so on. I like to cook and. At home I would cook have the pots and pans cleaned and put away, food on the table with just the dishes and bowls to stick in the dishwasher in no time. I liked to make breads and rolls cakes etc and BBQ my own receipts for sauce and Mesquite smoked.

Yup. Great idea. Now, let me count the number of vegan restaurants within 50 miles of me. Hmmmmm, if I'm adding correctly, it would be exactly NONE! [emoticon]

This time of year I like to make chili or stuffed pepper soup to take with us. I put it in containers that I can heat and serve with maybe a grilled cheese sandwich or salad. Easy and done.

There are actually lots of great ready made meals in the stores now. Costco has a Korean Beef that we love, we just have to made some rice. There are some great fresh ravioli that just takes a jar of marinara sauce and some garlic bread. Sam's has my favorite frozen pre-cooked wings, a bag of coleslaw and it is a good meal. Costco General or orange chicken with a carton of fried rice is another easy meal. Well, you get the idea.

For desserts, mug cakes are good and super easy. I also like baking the Krusteaz triple chocolate cookies.

I prefer to cook outside when I can. You can put a camp stove, small oven, crock pot, etc. on a chair-high table and do more from a seated position. Too much available to eat much fast food.

We often spent a lot of time on roads so almost the food we work by ourself and I love this. I bought a Camp Chef to make an outdoor kitchen on my lanai. It is perfect! It lights every time. I can fit 2 full-sized skillets on the burners (bacon and eggs for the family) and I have used the far to bake a cake, cinnamon rolls, and meatloaf…it keeps me from heating up my house in the summer. I absolutely love it.

I’m a ‘second hand vegan’ ........

Cows eat plants, I eat cows.

The plants are purified as they pass through the cows, that makes them even safer .......


That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
