While vacationing in Cancun, where we have a full kitchen, we have prepared most of our meals! One trip to Costco allowed us to get fresh lettuce, asparagus, apples, zucchini, spinach, broccoli, string beans, bell peppers, cucumber, onions, corn on the cob, carrots, mangos, soy milk, frozen blueberries and strawberries, canned tuna, and frozen salmon and chicken.
I brought a small George Foreman Grill that we’ve been cooking the salmon and chicken on, along with the asparagus and some of the zucchini. I also brought along some rice, seasonings, prepackaged cooked lentils, protein powder, and almonds. At a local market we purchased salad dressing, pasta sauce, olive oil, oatmeal, bananas, oranges, a watermelon and a Mexican papaya.
We cooked half of the apples by dicing then cooking them on the stove until soft. We’ve used the cooked apples on oatmeal and to make vanilla-apple shakes made with soymilk and vanilla protein powder. Banana and blueberries are also great on oatmeal. And since we have a blender here, we have been able to whip up shakes and fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies.
The salad in the photo above is made from cut up raw vegetables and apple on a bed of lettuce topped with tuna, then we put our own salad dressing on it. One of my favorite meals has been sautéed vegetables with rice and lentils. We all have been enjoying plenty of fruit and raw, steamed, sautéed and grilled vegetables!
With a little planning and creativity you too can enjoy eating well while on vacation.
