Those of you who follow my adventures (that’s all of you right?) will know that for the last few months I’ve been doing a bit of travelling, a bit o’ globe trotting what with Iceland and North of Scotland and Portugal and now London. I get about. Not in that way. My mum reads this you know? Hi Mum.
Where was I?
Yes travelling. I’ve blogged before about the whole raw food and travelling malarkey. You see, even before I set my sights on seeing a bit of the world, I used to have a job. You know, a proper office job. Then I got made redundant but that actually turned out to be amazing. Keep to topic Emma. So, in my old proper job I used to have to travel about to different offices and that made being raw just that little bit more of a challenge.
Read about all my raw food travelling tips here, here and here. Oh the fun, attempting to wedge a carton of oat milk in the hotel window to keep it cool and accidentally bursting a hole in it resulting in an oat milk shower…trying to warm up raw porridge using the steam from the hotel bedroom kettle…jars of pesto bursting in my suitcase resulting in lots of “can anyone smell pesto?” remarks at work…
The amazing news is that if you are lucky enough to be a raw foodist AND get to move about and see different places there is now a brand new ebook, Travelling in the Raw, solely dedicated to being able to stay raw on the move by the delicious Robyn Law of Girl on Raw (isn’t she a stunner?). I was ecstatic to get my hands on a copy and trust me, this is the one stop shop for all you need to know about travelling and raw food.
Robyn is THE expert on this topic having been raw for many years of travelling to all parts of the world (lucky cow). She knows her stuff. In the book she covers:
How to make raw food fun whilst travelling – i.e. you ain’t just chopping up some carrots in your hotel room with a teaspoon. Don’t mock, I’ve had to use teaspoons for all kinds of raw food prep work. Clearly I needed this book a long time ago…
What equipment will see you through without having to take an extra suitcase for your vitamix!
How to connect with other raw foodies across the globe
Researching resources for your trip
Quick and easy recipes you can make before and during travel without losing your sanity
Robyn’s tips and tricks for being raw on the road…or the plane, bus, hovercraft, time machine…you get the jist!
Trust me when I tell you this is a great book. Robyn really has covered all the basics including EVERYTHING you’d need to think about before you go, how to plan, what works well and not so well, tips and tricks I never even thought of, step by step instructions on making foods on the go. This really is one VITAL information resource if you’re travelling and sticking to raw or high raw.
The AMAZING news is that I have one copy to give away as part of a cheeky wee competition. To be in with a chance of winning this awesome book all you have to do is pop in the comments below the answer to this question:
