Pack Delicious Raw Food Meals for Family Trips

Raw food diets are beneficial to people of every age; these foods are packed with nutrients, vitamins, living cultures and enzymes and high in fiber. When you consume raw food, you know exactly what you are eating; there are no preservatives, chemicals or unknown ingredients. When you are planning for a trip or vacation,  it is important to prepare and pack raw food meals and stick to these plans.
Unfortunately, it can be difficult to peak children’s interest in a raw food diet. Many children are accustomed to pre-packaged foods and can be quite picky eaters. Because of this, it is important that you introduce your children to raw foods they will enjoy. Raw food goes way beyond salads and celery sticks; you can feed your children a wide variety of tasty raw food meals.

The Best Raw Foods for Meals
To create your raw food plan for long trips, stick with basic foods that can be substituted with raw foods. For example, pasta is one food staple that children and adults alike can enjoy. You can easily make a pasta substitute out of vegetables like cucumbers and squash. This “pasta” can be mixed with a variety of sauces and spices to make meals similar to spaghetti. For a great example of raw noodles, check out this recipe for zucchini pasta.
Similarly, rice can be replaced with raw food. When mixed with vegetables and homemade sauces, children and adults alike can enjoy a raw rice substitute.  Cauliflower rice with snow peas is one prime example of a simple and delicious meal that can be prepared ahead of time for your trips.
The Best Raw Foods for Snacks and Desserts
For growing and active children of all ages, snacks are just as important as meals. Snacks give kids the energy to get through each day and they are convenient when you are on long trips. Many of the store-bought, pre-packaged snacks that your kids love can be substituted with raw foods that are equally delicious. A few examples of delicious raw food snacks and desserts include: raw, no-bake granola bars filled with nuts and fruits dips made from cashews and other types of salty and savory nuts fruits can be mixed with cacao and agave nectar to make sweet, succulent desserts for children and adults alike.
Get Creative, Plan Ahead and You’re Set
As you can see, there are plenty of great raw foods for you and your family to enjoy. By planning ahead and being creative, you will never run out of options. Prepare the meals you love with raw food, and you will have plenty of meals and snacks that your children can enjoy.
