I’m a cook, which means that I like food. I love buying it, preparing it, smelling it, looking at it, cooking it, plating it, serving it, and eating it, and even cleaning it up. (Probably eating it a little less than the others, otherwise I’d be morbidly obese. But still. Yum.)
When I’m away from home, I like to be able to cook, both for fun and for health reasons. Not many things are more pleasing to me than being hosted and getting to thank my hosts with a meal, or enjoying a familiar dish in an unfamiliar setting.
Planning out what and where you will eat can take some of the stress out of travel, keep you well, and help you stay on budget. Here’s what I do to stay fit, fed, and functional when I travel.
