How to pack real food for a family road trip! Our adventure

5.28.2015

I think Memorial Day weekend is meant to mark the beginning of summer, so hopefully lots of long weekends, mini-breaks, road trips, and relaxing days off are on the calendar for you. We just got back from a great one--6 days off (though 2 were mostly spent in the car), not much on the calendar for me when we were in the Berkeley/Oakland area, so I had a ton of free time and got in good reading, long walks, fun workouts in the hotel gym, family time with extended family, and people-watching in a new place. (My husband’s family runs large volleyball tournaments in the Bay Area twice/year, and this time I tagged along but didn’t have to work with them.)

Visiting local restaurants is also a fun part of vacation, and we did a good amount of that, but it wasn’t practical for us to eat 2-3 meals out every day of our 6-day trip, so we did a lot of food preparation in the hotel suite kitchenette (mostly from food we brought from home). We ate out about 1 meal per day, usually dinner, and tried Ethiopian food, visited husband’s family’s old favorite coffee/breakfast place Fat Apple’s, and checked out a great grassfed burger place with tons of options for us like lettuce wraps and gluten-free buns (lots of ingredients from local farms).

In the room, we put together breakfasts, snacks, lunch/dinner combinations that worked for everyone in our party (husband and me eating our own personal versions of Paleo, my mother-in-law with her specific preferences, and my little brother-in-law who is usually happy with anything we offer him). Since we drove down from Portland, we were able to buy a lot of food at a familiar grocery store near us, and supplemented with a few fresh things from the supermarket by the hotel.

It’s hard to predict food needs for 4 people for 6 days, and even harder to try to plan ahead and stay within a tight budget (and stick to unprocessed, low-sugar, relatively high quality real food options). I think we did a really good job! So I wanted to share with you what we brought, what we relied most on, what worked, what meals we came up with. So here’s your visual guide: how to pack real food for a family trip!

This guide is broken into 3 parts: what food to bring, what tools to bring, and combination/meal ideas.

1. How to pack real food for a family trip: THE FOOD


We brought fresh veggies, pre-cooked smoked sausages,bananas, nuts for snacking, cold cuts, smoked salmon, ground coffee, hummus, Larabars, salads for the road, homemade salad dressing in an easy-to-use container, mustard, salt, peanut butter, dark chocolate, MCT oil and grassfed butter for coffees, and protein powder in a smaller container.

Not pictured:
  • 4 dozen eggs!!!! (We ate most of them!!) (They were still boiling when I took this photo)
  •  Coconut milk in a glass jar for my decaf coffee
  • Cream for mother- and brother-in-laws’ coffees
  • A few snacky things and foods my mother-in-law brought for herself
  • Things we picked up at the store by the hotel--most notably, fresh salad greens and roasted red peppers


We definitely made some compromises for portability, ease, and fun, and I bought some brands and foods I don’t normally keep around the house. The sliced lunch meats, for example, are not the same quality we want from the meat we buy from local farms, and we don’t buy them except for picnic or travel situations. The Larabars are such a treat for husband and me, and good when mealtimes are unpredictable (I ate one on a shopping trip that ran long with my sister-in-law!).

I thought about bringing my pre-mixed collagen peptides protein shakes for myself, but I didn’t want to bring the almond milk and yet another jar or bag, so I skipped those and just ate an extra couple of eggs! The whey protein shakes were helpful for husband and brother-in-law, though.

2. How to pack real food for a family trip: THE TOOLS


We knew we'd be able to use the kitchenette in the hotel room, so we just brought some staples of our home kitchen: coffee mugs, dish soap in a small container (so easy to forget this one!!), our stick blender, jars for mixing protein shakes in, an extra food storage container (handy for putting servings of nuts in or for keeping small leftovers), scissors for opening packages (sooo frustrating if you don't have them!), and small knives with convenient blade covers. I wrapped the jars in a lightweight dish towel for traveling.

Not pictured because my mother-in-law brought them:
  • Coffee filters, cone, and electric kettle
  • Paper plates
  • Paper towels
  • Spare Ziploc bags
  • A large glass canning jar we used as a blender base

We had a microwave, tons of cabinets, counter space, a convenient sink, 2 mini-fridges, and a dining table in our hotel suite, so we lived pretty comfortably and could do dishes and organize things as needed. We also borrowed (with permission) some tools from the hotel buffets (silverware, extra salt & pepper shakers). If you’re camping, you may not have as many resources and might have to pack more!

We actually thought about bringing our regular blender for coffees, but car space was limited so we brought this handy stick blender and treated the large glass jar like a blender base.

3. How to make meals from real food for a family trip


We had a pretty basic formula of acceptable meals for the most part. Not the most well-rounded nutrition we’ve ever eaten, but kept us full and clear-headed for a long weekend of long work days (husband and brother-in-law) and of tourist-ing and hanging out (mother-in-law and me).

Breakfasts:

For almost every breakfast we had hard-boiled eggs, sometimes a smoked sausage heated up in the microwave, and coffee we made in the room. Husband made buttery blended coffees most mornings with the grassfed unsalted butter and MCT oil we brought from home.

Lunches or dinners:

Depending on the schedule and how everyone was feeling, we went out to either lunch or dinner most days. When we didn’t, we made combinations in the room like these:

A favorite portable lunch-ey meal we’ve been doing recently for traveling is lettuce boats or cold cut wraps with mustard and avocado. Ham and avocado is a great combination! We also had the salami to add some interest for future applications of this recipe. The sweet peppers are a super easy veggie side.
 

Here’s a salad I made with mixed greens (purchased at the supermarket near the hotel) and smoked salmon, peppers, and other goodies.

While timing didn’t work out for a photo, also we had a tasty simple dinner of mixed green salads and smoked sausages.

On the car on the way home I had a simple 3:00 meal of cold cuts, mini-peppers, and raw cashews. Because, traveling--tired of being on the freeway, sticking to simple things.

Snacks:

We don’t eat a ton of snacks in our everyday lives because we eat large meals that keep us full, but on a trip when sometimes meals get delayed or aren’t as big or satisfying as usual… snacking happens. Easy snacks we did were:

  • Protein shake in one of the jars
  • Banana and peanut butter
  • Handful of nuts
  • Larabar
  • Salami
  • Hard-boiled eggs

Real food travel complete!


At first the cooler and massive canvas bag of food and tools looked like too much, but we ate a good amount of it and now have identified what we had too much and too little of. We ate all the bananas and bought more toward the end, but we really overbought on the nuts, for example. We had 9 hard-boiled eggs left over, but that was okay since I didn’t have time to make my usual crustless egg and bacon quiche for my breakfasts for the week, so I've been taking eggs for my breakfasts at work this week.

Hope this guide is helpful for you in packing for trips this summer! Whether you have food sensitivities or an autoimmune condition, are doing a Whole30 or 21 Day Sugar Detox, or just care about feeding your family nutrient-dense nourishing food, I hope you can learn from our trip!

DIY ribbon trim table runner tutorial

5.19.2015

My dining table is usually bare. Except for maybe a notepad or empty flower vase, or overflow from husband's book bag. When we're not using it, the dining table sits plain in the dining area, un-decorated and un-festive.

I don't want to put a table cloth on it all the time, or place mats, because they get dirty with use and are harder to clean. I don't have fresh flowers all the time, and I don't want to scrape up the surface with living plant pots. The table is 72" long, so almost all the table runners I see in stores (while cute, and in so many fun styles!) are too short to look right. They are super easy to make, but I haven't made one in years!

So I was inspired when I saw this ribbon from Offray--I loved the bright, tropical leaf print and thought a simple runner design with a bright white would really show it off! So I finally got my act together and made a summery runner for our poor, lonely table.

Here's a tutorial for how you can make a chic, bold table runner with some great ribbon and simple fabric!

DIY Ribbon Trim Table Runner


You will need:

  • 2-5 yards cotton twill, cotton duck, linen, or linen-look fabric (depending on table size)
  • Twice the yardage of the fabric in fun ribbon (I used this 2.5" wide satin ribbon)
  • Standard sewing supplies

Instructions:


1. Cut or tear two pieces of even size. Mine were about 14" wide.

2. Sew the long seams right sides together.

3. Press the seams to one side, from the inside and outside.

4. Press flat. Fold the tube you've created so the seams are centered on the side edges, and press and pin flat.

5. Topstitch about 1/4" (presser foot width) from the edge on both edges. 

6. Cut two pieces of ribbon 2-3" longer than the unhemmed runner and remove the wires. I found it helps to stand on the bottom of the ribbon as you scrunch and pull!

7. Position the ribbon the desired distance from the edge and pin. For a narrower ribbon, father might look nicer... or closer, hard to say. Mine was 5/8" from the edge. Pin on the outer edge, with a few stabilizing pins on the inner edge to keep it on grain.

8. Topstitch the outer edge of the ribbon.

9. Topstitch the outer edge, using your hand and the stabilizing pins to keep it flat.

10. Turn ends under and press. Treat them as one piece and turn under 1/4" or so, then 3/4" or so and press and pin. 

11. Hem by machine or by hand.

Display proudly!

Here it is in my dining room, making the table look less lonely when it's not in use!

Thanks to Offray for sponsoring this post!

A book on practically everything interesting - The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook! And a giveaway

5.14.2015

There are a LOT of great books out there on topics I care about. LOTS of beautiful real food cookbooks, lots of books on backyard chickens and urban homesteading, lots of beautiful, inspiring lifestyle photography books, lots of books on what's wrong with our food system for sustainability and health. So when Diana Rodgers (of The Sustainable Dish blog and Modern Farm Girls podcast) combined ALL those topics and more into this one amazing book, I knew it was worth having!!

And The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook has not disappointed. I've loved sharing this book with my husband (we dream of having chickens!) and am excited to read it with my mother-in-law, a pro gardener and the one who introduced us to local grassfed beef- and pastured hog share-buying.

So I was also very excited to share it with you! And overwhelmed as to where to start on this review. So much good stuff!

Check out this page on Diana's blog for more about the book, plus a beautiful video trailer!

The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook is more than 400 pages of info, including gorgeous photos (they were shot in FILM photography!! How many gardening/homesteading/cookbooks can say that?), and is split into sections about 1) the case for sustainable living and eating, and the problems with standard modern diets, 2) Raising, 3) Growing, 4) Cooking, and 5) Living. So many things I care about!

The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook Review


Here are a few of my favorite pages and tidbits from the book.

The "Raising" section talks about chickens, rabbits, sheep, goats, pigs, cows, and even bees!

I've heard about Diana's chicken coops on wheels (on podcasts), so it was cool to see this photo of them! And read about the role chickens play in a sustainable farm.

The "Growing" section is also an incredible resource. The parts about getting started with a food garden (on any scale, even porch planters) are helpful for me since I'm a newbie at it. Some great science on soil health, too.

And specifics about growing each family of produce.

Possibly my favorite page in the book is this map of what you can grow on a 1/8 acre, 1/4 acre, or 1 acre plot of land. Oh, how I hope I can one day (soon?) have a yard of any size at all, and be able to produce some of our own food on it!

Of course, there are also RECIPES! In the "Cooking" section, the 100+ recipes are organized by season. This is super helpful for those of us with CSA subscriptions, too... I've been getting a lot of the ingredients for the "Early Season Recipes" in our CSA box each week, and this book is organized for seasonal eating and using foods that are available at the same time as each other. Perfect!!

Diana took more than a year to get all the photos taken, so she was able to capture each season on the farm. It's incredible what we can produce all year 'round, and if you subscribe to a year-round CSA or winter CSA like we do, you know you get some amazing produce in the winter, too. The photos of all the recipes are so gorgeous (film photography of fresh, local food through the seasons... what more could you want in an appetizing cookbook?), every page is inspiring. And, Diana is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and notes in each recipes if it can be made nut-free, egg-free, Autoimmune Protocol-friendly, or Whole30-compliant. All the recipes are gluten-free and most are or can be dairy-free.

This roasted asparagus soup with trumpet mushrooms and sorrel recipe is also available on Diana's blog!

There are important kitchen tips in the "Cooking" section, too, like basic canning methods (I need to learn!!), how to make and refrigerate broths, how to grill... and this, how to care for cast iron cookware. We love our cast iron, but it did take some getting used to.

The "Living" section of the book has DIY projects like beeswax candles, ideas for games, and tips for de-stressing. And some tips and encouragement on eating good food on a budget/"making it work in real life."

Even if you don't have land (we have two decks, no yard) or a green thumb, the book is helpful and informational about how we buy food. The first part shares some help for being an educated consumer (like what all the terminology on egg varieties means), and I love reading stats like how Americans' budgets have changed over the years on how much we spend on food.

Giveaway!


I can't explain how much great information is packed into this beautiful book. I'm sure you will love The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook if you love cooking real, high quality food!

Diana has generously offered one of my readers a copy of this incredible book! Enter here! Ends Thursday, 5/21 at 9:00 PM PST.


Pre-summer recipe! Coconut blueberry cinnamon ice cream

5.11.2015

I love making homemade coconut milk ice cream. I've tried a lot of different recipes and techniques, and sometimes I just wing it--but it does take a lot of trial and error and sometimes it doesn't work out! I've gotten creative with recipes and solutions for tasty dairy-free ice creams!

It's been hot this past week, and getting me thinking about summer. I love picking blueberries at u-pick farms, and we still have 2 large freezer containers of berries from last summer. Time to use them up, right?!

I used frozen blueberries for this recipe, but you could try it with fresh ones after blueberry picking in July!

A lot of the blueberry ice cream recipes I looked at (dairy free/Paleo like this one or conventional) used blended blueberry mixture in the ice cream. That sounds tasty, but I know from making fruity ice creams before that the more fruit you add, the icier it gets--less creamy from the fat in the cream, more like a sorbet. I wanted creamy ice cream, so I left the blueberries whole.

I've often used egg yolks in coconut milk ice creams, but there is some timing involved in making the custard, or just calculating the ratios of egg yolks to milk... I'm not a pro at this yet so it's sometimes a little too complicated. So this recipe uses gelatin for thickener! Another great use for Vital Proteins or other high quality grassfed beef gelatin. It's high in protein and gives a delicious smooth texture. (Read my post here on what I use their collagen peptides for!) If you don't already have some, I highly recommend some Vital Proteins gelatin for desserts and other recipes (here or here), or the peptides for cold drinks.

Cinnamon Blueberry Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp gelatin (dissolved into 1/4 c. boiling water)
  • 20 oz. (1.5 cans) full-fat coconut milk (this brand is amazing! and free of additives)
  • 1/4 c. honey or to taste
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 c. frozen blueberries

We have a very basic ice cream maker (like this), and I'm getting to test its limitations. (My friend has this one which seems like a good upgrade). Depending on the size of your ice cream maker, you may need to make this in multiple batches.

    Instructions:


    1. Combine dissolved gelatin, coconut milk, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon in glass bowl. Heat in microwave or warm oven if needed to blend gelatin. (May not be necessary if your coconut milk was warm or room temperature).
    2. Blend together with a handheld stick blender, or use a standard blender (harder to clean!). If it is warm, cool in refrigerator or freezer until cool.
    3. Add whole blueberries to coconut milk mixture.
    4. Assemble ice cream maker and turn on. Pour combined mixture into ice cream maker and churn until done.

    Serve immediately! Top with cinnamon, coconut flakes, or more blueberries if desired.

    A seriously everyday look and new attitude on shoe-buying!

    5.07.2015

    As fun as it is to design cute summery dresses and tops and shorts, play with my favorite patterns and come up with cute or trendy looks to wear to parties... it doesn't help me get dressed for work every day! When I renamed and refocused this blog last summer, I counted all the dress posts I'd done - 119. That means, 119 dresses hanging in my closet (minus a few I've gotten rid of)--they don't all fit or flatter, either, and I don't love them as much as I once did. Pink, blue, yellow, patterned, lacy... they are fun, but not practical!

    So, I wanted to start talking on this blog about my everyday. I don't wear most of these dresses or wedges or bright sandals most of the time, even on weekends.

    Really, I wear a lot of black, denim, navy, and olive. I wear jeans or black pants to work, and I love button-up shirts, stripes in classic colors, and textured sweaters. I have an olive cargo vest and an olive jacket, and 3 jean jackets. I have 5 pairs of black flats of some kind. On weekends and evenings, I wear yoga pants because I'm usually going to work out or hike at some point in the day--or after a workout, I wear them so I can sit on the floor and roll on the foam roller. Floral dresses and heels do not fit into my lifestyle!

    And I've gotten rid of a LOT of clothing in the past few years. Lessons like "You wear 20% of your clothing 80% of the time," the capsule wardrobe, and this book have encouraged me. I love having more space in my closet and less to choose from!

    But, I come from a background of collecting cheap, ill-fitting clothes and shoes because it was fun to have new, stylish things. I counted my shoes in high school once and had something like 70 pairs (stuffed into my messy, small bedroom closet). Now that I want to own fewer but better, more comfortable pairs of shoes, I actually have a hard time finding the perfect pair of shoes--knowing I'm only going to have one new one that season or year.


    When I wrote earlier this year about our new hobby, hiking, I mentioned I was having a hard time finding minimal hiking and other shoes. A blog reader and fellow Oregonian, Sarah, wrote to me because her company, Soft Star Shoes, has high quality leather minimal shoes made right here in Oregon. Was I interested in trying a pair? Of course!

    For many years I had back and neck pain, and a chiropractor even ordered me custom orthotics. They didn't help. Only now, when I've stopped wearing high heels except for special occasions, stopped wearing massively supportive running shoes, and started strength training has my pain gotten better. I still see a chiro and physical therapist occasionally, but my neck, back, and hip pain is SO much better with my increase strength and movement capability. (And I stopped using a pillow at night! Crazy.)

    I've also worn ballet flats for many years, so I thought I was ready to try a pair of very minimal shoes like Soft Star flats. Sarah sent me this pair and they are SO comfortable! And they go with my usual work uniform!

    These are the Adult Ballerine Flat in perforated leather. They come in universal whole sizes so I went with a 7 regular instead of the 8 or 8.5 Wide I usually wear. The leather is soft and molds to my feet.

    They are definitely different than any shoe I've ever worn, but they are beyond comfortable and easy to wear. I love that I can wear them to work without looking like I'm wearing something as comfortable as slippers! They remind me of those packabale ballet flats Gap had several years ago, sold in matching baggies, but those were usually pinchy and fake leather. These are SO much better than those or any of my other flats!


    One of my fave movement experts, Katy Bowman, just did an interview/post feature with the founder of Soft Star Shoes - read it on her blog here for more info about them!

    A little warning... even proponents of minimal footwear say you can hurt yourself if you switch to it too quickly. As someone who used to buy the most supportive Nikes I could find and at one point wear heels to work every day, I can say making the gradual shift has been completely worth it. Back pain, neck pain, hip tightness, constantly knotty, sore quads and glutes... so much improvement after ditching the heels for flats, switching to a standing desk, and lifting heavy weights (properly and carefully). But, you do have to know your body and be intentional and careful.

    It means I'm not shopping for new wedges and heels every season, but I do value investing in really good quality leather truly comfortable shoes. If you feel the same, check out Soft Star Shoes!

    How to bake ANYTHING! The easiest & tastiest way to make veggies

    5.05.2015

    Sometimes I get really excited about the simplest things. Like ingredients I've been eating my whole life, just heated up differently.

    Since I started cooking again a couple years ago, I've tried a lot of recipes and learned new cooking methods, but my new favorite, most versatile way of cooking almost anything is SO simple and easy.

    When I was a kid my mom would steam vegetables all the time. Steamed broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, potatoes, whatever. She'd serve them tossed in butter or olive oil, with salt. They were fine and I ate them (and even liked them). When I was in college and ate processed, cheap, usually sugary foods, I'd sometimes realize I hadn't eaten any vegetables all day and I'd steam myself some broccoli or kale. Add some olive oil and salt, eat. They got the job done.

    But, after getting some mystery vegetables in our CSA shares the past few seasons and after getting tired of mashed sweet potatoes as our favorite post-workout carb dense side... I've tested the limits of baking my veggies instead of steaming! I now know I can bake almost any veggie I want to cook, with delicious results!

    (I organize the CSA programs at my work for summer and winter. I collect sign-ups and coordinate the deliveries once/week at our back parking lot. It's a great way for us to get our CSA share without making an extra trip in the week, and I love that I've been able to introduce people to the organic, local produce CSA system. But it also means I have a reputation as something of a vegetable expert, and I'm not sure I am. Last winter when we got some parsnips (my favorite!!), turnips, rutabagas, something like that, a coworker said he wasn't sure how to cook them. I realized, my answer to pretty much any vegetable is, 1) chop, 2) toss with choice of fat and salt/spices, 3) bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until it's done.)

    It's SO easy. No hot water to pour off, no drippy food on my plate getting cold faster. And it's SO delicious! Roasting brings out the flavor much better than boiling, and roasted veggies are much more satisfying than simply boiled.

    So, here's my "recipe" for you - my formula for easy roasted veggies, just about any kind!

    Oven-Roasted Broccoli (or ANY veggie)

    Ingredients:

    • Vegetable of choice. I've done this with all root vegetables, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and greens (though greens need way less time)
    • Fat of choice (lard is ideal - the original fat for French fries, after all - but with solid fats like lard, butter, coconut oil, you have to put it on the baking sheet/put the baking sheet in the oven for a few minutes to let it melt first. The easiest to use is olive oil or avocado oil.)
    • Sea salt
    • Pepper (optional)
    • Other spices of choice - my favorites are cayenne powder or red pepper flakes!

      Instructions:


      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
      2. Chop veggies to just-larger-than-bite size pieces.
      3. Put fat of choice on baking sheet, heat if necessary. 
      4. Put veggies onto oil on baking sheet and toss around.
      5. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and spices of choice.

      6. Bake for 30 minutes (10 minutes for greens) or until done. (You can check halfway through and toss veggies around to get all sides browning.)


      Serve!

      This baking sheet (into this bowl) was 2 whole heads of broccoli, believe it or not. It really cooks down. Unfortunately this amount lasted us about... 1.5 meals? We eat big servings of veggies!

      But, you can fit more on a large cookie sheet than you can in an a small sauce pan, so it's easy to make bigger batches if you have a bigger pan! (So tasty for lunch leftovers!) 

      Try it next time you have a mystery (or totally standard) veggie to cook!

      P.S. The napkins were a sample gift from Hen House Linens, Evans print in Lantern Indigo.

      Comfy lightweight denim ruffle top

      5.01.2015

      Notice a trend in my recent sewing? I love denim. I've been wearing a lot of it (mixed denim jackets and jeans, even!) and have now made two dresses (1, 2) and this top out of this perfect lightweight denim from one of the apparel collections at JoAnn. And I made this lightweight pinstripe denim dress the other week!

      A long time ago I shared how to make a peplum top out of any dress pattern. Important stuff, people. This top uses method #2: a simple short gathered skirt attached at the waist of the bodice, in place of the skirt-length real skirt.

      Except, to create a looser top, I didn't put in the darts on this Simplicity 1873 bodice, and I cut it out a size too big. (I chose this pattern because it does have a substantial bust dart in the side seam, which I did add for shaping. It is a very versatile pattern--see all my uses of it here!)

      As a dress pattern, it's meant to be lined, but this denim is perfect for an unlined finish so I used single fold bias tape and trimmed away some excess seam allowance around the neckline and arm openings to give the same finished dimensions with a bias binding.

      Loose = no zipper! Easy to sew and wear!

      Of course it goes great with white jeans! (Who can wait till after Memorial Day to wear them!?!??!) I layered it under a boxy lightweight coat.
      Jacket: J.Crew via Goodwill. Jeans: Lucky Brand via Goodwill. Purse: Nine West (similar). Shoes: Target old. Top: DIY!


      Now bring on more warm weather like we've been having!
