Useful Recipes While Traveling
Easy to carry food while traveling for shorter duration/ day trips
Organic fruits like bananas, pears, apples, oranges etc can be carried on short and long trips which can be eaten without the use of any cutlery. On day trips when availability of food may be a problem, it’s always best to carry foods that can last for the day.
Oatmeal Bowl– To make an oatmeal bowl just add a serving of rolled oats topped with some chopped dates, raisins and maybe a few chopped dry fruits if available to a bowl. Add soymilk or any other non-dairy milk and enjoy.

Every railway station as well as stopovers like food malls alongside highways have fruit stalls. Some places also have kiosks which serve steamed chana, corn, peanut masala bhels (steamed chana mixed with chopped onions, tomatoes, spices, lemon and coriander). Coconut water is also easily available. (If you are not on diabetes reversal or any other disease reversal path then chikkis are also a good option).
For longer then 2 days to a week

Travelling for longer durations–
While hunting for accommodation, look out for places with kitchenettes or kitchens with a fridge to store greens, bananas and fruits for smoothies as well as soy milk that can be taken with rolled oats for breakfast. Carrying a small rice cooker with steamer attachment and small blenders like nutribullet comes in very handy. Then basic homemade meals like green smoothies, dal and rice can be prepared in the hotel room.
