Easy RV Meals

Have you thought of planning a vacation around locations you might like to move to before the coming chaos hits? If you’re planning to travel–such as by RV–this season, consider the following info from Wise Food Storage.

 

RVers face some challenges when it comes to food: vast, empty stretches without restaurants, late-night hauls when everyone is sleeping except the hungry driver, cold food, fast food, the frustration of cooking in a tight space and limited storage can all add up to a lot of expense and stress during what should be a relaxing vacation.

Whether your trip is a family vacation or part of a lifestyle, a little planning and strategy can go a long way. Here are some pre-planning tips for streamlining your on-the-road food strategy:

Stash Quick Food

  • As you’re planning, check the map for empty stretches of road. Consider that your crew will probably be ready to eat every four hours and pre-load enough snacks or quick meals for long haul days.
  • Scan the agenda for busy days and early mornings – plan quick breakfasts for fast cleanup.
  • Take note of potential nighttime hauls and ensure the driver has a late night meal or snack handy before everyone else hits the sack.
  • Freeze dried meals that only need hot water and a fork are handy for fast, no- cleanup meals. They also allow each person to pick their own entrée, just like they would in a restaurant, and eat when they?re hungry instead of waiting for a scheduled stop or for “the cook” to prepare a meal.

Take Advantage of Local Specials

  • Take a break for meals that allow you to try the regional food.
  • Stop at roadside produce stands and farm markets to enjoy in-season, local produce. (Don’t buy too much though; you don’t have anywhere to store it.)

Be Safe

  • Invest in a roll of non-slip shelf paper and ensure all galley shelves are covered.
  • Use plastic dinner and storage ware (preferably non-disposable) – glass is too dangerous in a moving kitchen.
  • If you use liquid propane to cook and cool, ensure it’s turned off while the RV is in motion. (Liquid propane is highly volatile. If the gas line breaks, one spark can cause an explosion.) While driving, the refrigerator will stay cool if the door isn’t opened too frequently.
  • Secure all cooking gadgets and utensils. In an accident, these things can become deadly projectiles.
  • Ensure you have a 5-pound BC-rated fire extinguisher in the galley and near each exit. Make sure your entire crew knows where these are and how to use them.

Be Healthy

It can be difficult to stick to a healthy eating pattern on the road. Make these four habits part of your daily routine and you’ll feel better on your trip and won’t come home with pounds to lose:

  • Include fruits and vegetables at every sit-down meal.
  • Limit coffee and soda to one serving each per day.
  • Keep and use fruit for snacks.

  • Travelling in an RV can be lots of fun, but at times very tiring. Fast food prep is the key. Your article is very informative. Here is a very quick meal if you don’t want a freeze dried entre. Pick up 1 lb of lean ground beef, med. can of pork and beans, med. can of peas, and a med. can of sliced potatoes. Brown the ground beef in a saucepan until it is cooked. Drain excess fat. Add the can of pork and beans, drain the liquid from the peas and the potatoes and add those. Mix well and serve when everything is heated through. It’s delicious. Also works well over a camp fire.
