Hello! I’m out of town on business and trying not to spend too much. My hotel room has an electric kettle and a fridge (no microwave or anything else).
I’ve already thought of cup of noodles (not very healthy) but solves the problem that I didn’t think to bring a little bowl! I have no utensils or dishes.
edit: just realised I do have a small coffee cup, saucer and spoon.

I’d go to a grocery store and pick up yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, soymilk or whatever u like on your cereal, fruits, veggie, and a big salad ESP idf they have a salad bar. You can get spoons and bowls from the breakfast bar sometimes or ask the front desk. If there’s a health food place near by, you could pick up some cooked quinoa for protein, or if you’re a meat eater, grilled chicken for your salad. I’m usually eating breakfast in the room, but too often the rest gets absorbed in work related socializing.
I travel all of the time for work, and I’m a picky eater, so I feel your pain! Oh, I Houston saw your edit… I always bring my coffee beans but I can’t move in the morning without a strong cup of coffee. I usually bring up a few creamers the night before, unless they have a nice coffee bar in suite.

Oh, and hard boiled eggs from a salad bar! They’re a life saver.
Eta you are in France? You can get tons of yummies from the shops, cheese!, 🙂

Yes, I’m in france…yum! However it’s sunday so I have to venture out and see what is open. It’s true, it’s tricky to know which meals will be on my own and which won’t.

Warning: this will sound weird. So I taught in China for a couple of summers and after awhile Chinese food for breakfast, lunch and dinner gets really old. We invented something called ” Kettle Spaghetti”.
Basically you put dry pasta in your kettle with water, boil the kettle (cook the pasta), drain and then eat the pasta with some sauce that you pour on top. We didn’t have dishes, so we had cup of noodles for lunch, rinsed out and kept the “bowl”, and used it for kettle spaghetti later lol. You could use pesto sauce since you don’t need to heat it up first.
Just a thought. Also milk and cereal? Muffins?
