Real Food Hits the RoadAre you planning to hit the road for a family vacation?

Want to take a road trip but the idea of eating out three meals a day doesn’t work for your budget or your health?

Would you like to continue with a real/whole/traditional style of eating while away from home?

Love the idea of eating real food on the road but don’t want to be chained to the stove while on vacation?


Real Food Hits the Road will be your guide to saving the budget, keeping your digestion working well and enjoying real food away from home while letting you enjoy the trip and not ‘cook’ all of the time.


Real Food Hits the Road is not just a cookbook, it is a tutorial in making real food simple and enjoyable while away from home.

Written from a Weston A. Price Foundation Dietary Guidelines prospective, the first third of the book will take you through the planning process that will allow your family’s trip to be real food friendly. My family has a goal of 85% real food (following the WAPF guidelines) while at home and continue with that goal while away from home.  By not requiring 100% perfection we’re able to accommodate for any meals out plus times when our location prevents finding exactly what we would eat at home.

Even if you don’t need to stick with a strict style of eating while away from home, Real Food Hits the Road will help you make choices that will lessen any dietary disturbances you may encounter by using just a few simple suggestions.  Travel and good eating does not have to be an all or nothing approach. I share my favorite suggestions that require minimal time and effort.

Want an entire meal plan for a two week family vacation? This eBook has you covered.  I share our full menu plan for two weeks on the road while staying in a variety of lodging options.

Real food on the road is quite easy to accomplish in a hotel with a kitchenette. But what if your hotel only offers a mini-fridge?  Or maybe absolutely forbids cooking? Our two week menu plan includes all three options. Plus I offer a detailed section on different types of lodging and ways to provide real food meals in those situations.

Maybe your family vacation will be a camping trip. One section of the book is dedicated to camping ideas and includes an actual 10-day menu plan we used. We love to camp and find preparing meals in the open air to be quite wonderful.

Whether you would like to prepare all of your meals yourself when away or just add in a few nutrient dense foods this eBook is for you.

    I’m just planning this out now for this summer! One thing I plan to do is bookmark the usda’s farmer’s market search tool into my phone. It lets you search by zipcode, then has maps, hours, payment accepted, and products available. I think it would be fun to explore local produce somewhere else! Here is the website:

    I just bought this e-book and can’t wait to dive into it!! I love reading anything about real food. We aren’t planning on taking any extended trips this year, but we hope to in the future and my stomach turned every time I would think about eating out for a week. I can’t wait to see what tips you have for this. All of your other e-books have been great, so I’m sure I will love this one too.
