Easy Boating and RV Meals
Boaters and RVers face some challenges when it comes to food: vast, empty passages and stretches without restaurants or stores, late-night hauls when everyone is sleeping except the hungry captain, cold food, fast food, the frustration of cooking in a tight space and limited storage can all add up to a lot of expense and stress during what should be a relaxing voyage.
Whether your trip is a family vacation or part of a lifestyle, a little planning and strategy can go a long way:
Stash Quick Food
- As you’re planning, check the map for empty stretches of road. Consider that your crew will probably be ready to eat every four hours and pre-load enough snacks or quick meals for long haul days.
- Scan the agenda for busy days and early mornings – plan quick breakfasts for fast cleanup.
- Take note of potential nighttime hauls and ensure the driver has a late night meal or snack handy before everyone else hits the sack.
- Stash some freeze dried meals that only need hot water and a fork - they're handy for fast, no- cleanup meals and allow each person to pick their own entrée, just like they would in a restaurant, and eat when they’re hungry instead of waiting for a scheduled stop or for “the cook” to prepare a meal.
