DH and I are going on a long cycling trip, camping etc….we have done this kind of trip before, but not with me pregnant! The issue is, it’s summer and we’re leaving soon and I have no idea what we can buy to eat along the way. We won’t have a fridge of course, and just a little gas burner. Normally we eat ”saucisson” (dried sausage) for protein, with instant potatoes and other things…however saucisson is on the no no list…as are all dried meats etc. Does anyone have any ideas of healthy, rich in nutrient ”on the road” no fridge, no or low cook foods? If you do, thank you!!!!! I’ll keep you posted on our adventure…we’ll see if I am capable of following my dh! I do find I’ve got more energy now than a while ago…but I’ll go slow.

I’ve been enjoying a lot of seeds/nuts for protien that can be left out. Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are some of my favorite. I’d also bring a few protien packed granola bars. Other than that I’m not sure, hopefully some other ladies will have more suggestions. Have fun on your trip!

FrenchNewlyWed: I’m vegetarian and did a 7 day hiking trip where we carried everything in. Dried lentils/chickpeas, protien bars, hard cheese (old cheddar), pasta and pesto, lots of crackers and flatbreads, couscous with freeze dried veggies that kind of stuff… my DH ate lots of packaged tuna, salmon. The first day you could take a fresh meat frozen, it would thaw during the day and then you can cook it that night should be fine.

banana330: thanks a lot! does anyone else have an opinion on canned fish? I think it is safe, no? Like little mackerel on Wasa bread-crackers could be good…

FrenchNewlyWed: Nuts and nut butters are good- sunflower seed butter, peanut butter, almond butter. Whole grains are a great source of protein as well- you could have quinoa or brown rice instead of potatoes. You could also do dried refried beans, although sometimes these are hard to find, check the bulk foods section. Good lcuk and have fun!!!

FrenchNewlyWed: I don’t think it matters if it’s canned, but the mackeral has a high mercury content. Tuna (non-albacore) is less troublesome in that department, although I think there are still guidelines for how much you should have (6 oz per week or something like that). No smoked salmon, either.
