Eating "cheap" doesn't have to be unhealthy
There are several ways to play food each day. It is not necessary to eat fast food just to save a couple bucks! I, for one, am not going to want to sacrifice quality or healthy eating while traveling. I don't usually eat fast food, so over the years I've found many other ways to eat reasonably well, while not breaking the bank.
doesn't have to be much, but is essential for a good start to a day of motorcycle travel. A granola bar, or actual granola (!), dried fruit, or nuts, make for a good power base to open the day.
cheese, crackers, nuts, sardines, dried meats like salami, or canned tuna, or, again- dried fruit, will all travel well, lasting pretty well without refrigeration, while not taking up too much space.
Supper could be had at a decent diner or restaurant.
Water, water, water. Can't stress enough how important this vital liquid is, what a difference it makes for us humans. Water is cheaper than soda, better than coffee or tea or even juice, for you. Don't get me wrong. I want a couple cups of coffee in the morning. But mid day, or at supper, give me some water. And not that I don't want a beer or cocktail at night, but water is tops on my list.
Traveling thru farm country will often reveal road side stands for veggies, or farm based sales for dairy items like cheese, or meat to cook at camp, and anything else that might be grown - and eaten. Most anywhere there is a fast foo drestaurant, a bit further off the main hiway, you will likely find a grocery store.
Picnicking is FUN! Make an adventure out of your meals. Find someplace interesting to pull off, where you can get off the bike and enjoy some down time. Stretch your legs and rest your arse, and have a healthful meal break! I know for me, when I eat better, I feel better. Good food acts more as fuel, where bad food just fills you up, and leaves you hungrier sooner. Eat well. Eat smart. Fuel the machine.
Just some thoughts here guys.
