We’ve just returned from an adventure in Argentina and I am happy to report that I stayed 100% raw the entire time! I did a lot of research beforehand and learned a lot along the way so I wanted to pass on some tips that helped me and may help you.
Bring along breads, crackers, cookies, dried fruits, nuts, raw granola, etc. – any prepared foods that don’t need to be refrigerated. I spent the week before dehydrating and the buckwheat superfood granola I made really saved me (sprouted buckwheat, goji berries, cacao nibs, agave, etc, dehydrated). Make sure you save enough for the flight home!
Bring along your own salt grinder, a small, light cutting board, an all-purpose tool with a knife (check it in!), a SPORK (love my spork), cup or bottle and a big lightweight plate or bowl (camping supply stores are great). Pack extra small plastic bags or containers for single servings of snacks.
You can generally find a small bottle of olive oil no matter where you go, keep it in a plastic bag in your day bag if you’re eating at a restaurant and don’t think they’ll have a decent oil. Only one restaurant we visited did, but all had lemons.
If you’re worried about getting greens bring a green wholefood powder to mix with water. I brought Alissa Cohen’s with probiotics and enzymes.
Be very careful where you bring fruit. The airport in Patagonia had a fruit detecting machine and they confiscated all of my fresh fruit (I didn’t know it wasn’t allowed there!).
If anyone has anything to add I’m still learning and would love any tips but I just wanted everyone to know you can go to a meat-loving country and be successfully raw.
