Eating Healthy on the Road

Everything changes constantly while travelling - passing through landscapes, visiting lots of cities, and sleeping in different beds. Along with every meal you have to decide what or where you want to eat, and settling for fast food based on availability and convenience is an easy choice to make. Going down this path once or twice is acceptable, but after a few days the craving for a healthy home cooked meal takes over. Or at least that's how it works for us.

So when working on another photography project in the US, we decided to resist these temptations and take on the challenge of maintaining a healthy diet while being on the road. The motel supplied us with microwaves and fridges, and the public barbecue helped us prepare nutritious, balanced dishes.

We kept it simple with fresh, raw and preserved foods that required little preparation. It was no fancy cuisine, but we cooked it with the same care as we would have done at home. This was a lovely and insightful challenge shot in the rural southern states.
