My friend Cat wrote in an email this week “I’m wondering if you had any suggestions for awesome and tasty roadtrip foods? I’ve got to pull a few Adelaide trips in the next few weeks and I would love to see some ideas on your bloggy blog”.
Well, Cat, your wish is my command! I’m finding that I concentrate better if I’m not eating food that makes my tummy grumble and general junk and I get excited about snacking because I feel proud of what I’ve made and don’t feel guilty about it. I also think it’s awesome having food on you when your road tripping as you can pull over at a rest stop or picnic spot and take in the scenery (and fresh air) whilst eating lunch.
Ideas for road trip snacks:
Gluten-Free muesli slice
Cold gluten-free pancakes (made into pikelets) with your favourite jam
Celery with sunflower/nut butter
Nuts & dried fruit
Carrot, celery and cucumber vegie sticks
Gluten-free Potato Chips
Corn or Rice Thins with a spread of your choice (miso, tahini, avocado, jam etc)
Drink bottle with cold herbal tea, water or freshly squeezed juice.
Ideas for bigger road trip meals:
Get a thermos — put in soups, pasta and curries. It’ll keep warm for hours!
Salads travel well (as long as it’s not a hot day) — funk them up so they’re exciting like putting in some seeds, tofu etc).
Take gluten-free bread with you so you can hand it over if I want a sandwich (especially for breakfast).
Vegetarian rice paper rolls
Soba noodle salad
