Diets and food trends go in and out of fashion faster than the flash of a lightning bug. According to a study, as many as 50% of Alaska citizens purchase fresh produce from farmer’s markets, and 34% grow produce from their own home. A&M RV Center provides spacious rentals with modern amenities that can fit your needs with respect to dietary restrictions.

Camping Food Spread

Going camping doesn’t mean you have to completely change the way you eat. Welcome the entire family, even those with the most strict diets. Below is a list of food storage tips when planning a road trip in your RV.

1. Store by Weight

You may be a great driver, but you can not always count on a smooth terrain. In an RV, food tends to move around if not properly stored. Consider placing heavier items like canned goods, glass jars, and rice in the bottom cabinets and shelves. This method will save you a messy clean up as well as potential injury if anything should fall. 

2. Avoid Perishables 

Unless you are planning on consuming your food that day, we suggest that you focus on canned food and other non-perishables. By simply avoiding items like raw meat and milk, you can rest assured that your items will remain safe to consume, even if you can’t make it to a charge station in time.

3. Time-Efficient Dishes 

Plan on dishes that can be cooked as quickly as possible. No matter how large your RV is, a hot oven or stovetop can be an uncomfortable problem, especially on warm nights. Cold dishes such as tuna or granola require less preparation which will allow you more time to enjoy your trip. 

Most people fear that they may be limited to peanut butter and jelly when on vacation. Your diet may be unique to your needs, but do not hesitate to enjoy the fresh ingredients that the Alaska Farmers Market Association is famous for.
