One of the benefits of RV travel is that you are able to prepare your own meals on the road. This saves loads of money compared to eating at restaurants for every meal, and it makes eating healthy food on vacation easier. While RV kitchen areas are smaller than the kitchen in your home, you don't have to limit what you make on your next trip. Instead, you need only alter your approach to enjoy the same dishes you love at home when you're en route to RV destinations.
Cook meals ahead of time
While RV trip planning, consider your food needs on the trip. You can purchase easy-to-make meals like frozen dinners and instant soups, but it's not hard to have homemade, healthy meals with a bit of preparation. Soups, stews and other meals can be prepared ahead of time and then frozen. This way, all you have to do is heat them up and you'll be enjoying home cooked meals no matter if you're at RV campgrounds or stopped at a rest stop for a quick bite.
Added bonus: When the meals are already made, you won't have nearly as many dishes to wash.
Bring exactly what you need
If you're planning to cook certain foods on certain days – for instance, you want to make pancakes for breakfast on one morning of your trip – bring the ingredients you need and nothing more. Measure out flour, spices and other ingredients and keep them in jars or bags to save space in your RV kitchen cabinets. You can marinate your meat ahead of time as well so it's extra flavorful when you're ready to throw it on the grill. Saving space is especially advantageous when you're going on a longer trip and will need more supplies.
Added bonus: When you bring only what you'll use on board, you'll have less to unpack when you get home.
These and other shortcuts can help you save time in the RV kitchen so you can spend more time enjoying your vacation with your family. Having food on board will also help you resist the urge to stop at a fast food joint when you need a snack, ensuring you'll not only eat healthy on your trip but save money as well.
