How to stay healthy on your RV travel adventures


My English is a bit rusty, but I would like to talk to you about an experience I had when I went to visit some of my friends in the United States. They were all set for the road and were about to go camping with their RV. In Europe, motorhomes aren’t particularly popular, but that’s probably because the distances between one city and the next aren’t immense as they are in the States. My buddies were keen to get out and travel, especially as they had bought a new gadget, something that they described as the best RV GPS on the market.

Something I noticed and that my buddies tackled when I went camping with them was staying healthy. It was difficult for them to get good food while traveling for about a month or so. Of course, you always have the option of canned food, but let’s be realistic and admit the fact that one can never know what goes into those cans.

If you are fixated on a particular campground, and it will take you some time to reach it, I recommend stopping on the way to get some fresh fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately, not all people have the money to get an RV fridge. Otherwise, things would be far simpler because you would have a means to store those veggies so that they don’t spoil.


I ate a lot of pasta salads while I was traveling with my friends. It was one of our go-to meals. You can add anything you want to the pasta, from bell peppers and tomatoes to spices and anything else. We did have a bit of trouble getting enough protein, though, and that’s why we stopped at a restaurant and enjoyed a nice steak, one day.

Tea is something that we drank every day. Making good coffee while you’re on the road can be quite challenging, and that’s why we mostly drank black and green tea. It goes without saying that the sky’s the limit when it comes to the varieties you can select. Some types are better than others, especially if you have a bit of trouble with regulating your digestion when you are on the road.

I eat yogurt every day at home, but it was impossible for me to do the same while I was in the U.S. On the one hand, I have to be honest and say that I don’t particularly like the yogurt brands that are available in American stores. They seem to be jam-packed with sugar and additives, and I know that even French people like their yogurt sweet once in a while, but we also like it simple. Aside from Greek yogurt, I wasn’t able to find anything remotely healthy.

It is important to keep an open mind whenever you go camping. You need to understand that your resources might be limited for some time. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you have no food left or none that is healthy, I recommend going to a restaurant and eating a salad.
