Item Description...
We're always on the move. Any day of the week can find us boating, camping, tailgating, or just cruising in an RV. We're loving every minute of life on the road but we can't (and don't want to) spend a long time preparing meals, and would rather not be eating take-out pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. JoAnna Lund knows the feeling. When she's on the road with her husband in their RV, she sticks to recipes that are easy to whip up, and easy on the soduim, fat, and calories. Here is her best collection ever of fast, healthy on-the-go recipes, each with nutritional information and most using fewer that six ingredients.

Publishers Description

RVs are becoming a more popular vacation choice than ever, as people crave more family time and seek to avoid the anxieties and hassles of air travel. And when RVers, boaters, campers, and tailgaters are out on the open road-or water-they still want healthy home cooking. Now, with this unique collection by seasoned RVer (and million-selling cookbook author) JoAnna Lund, vacationers and retired folks can eat as healthfully on the road as when they're at home. Lund sticks to recipes that are both easy to whip up and easy on the sodium, fat, and calories. And she also offers her old-hand traveler's survival tips, including...
* storage: cupboards vs. freezers
* transporting-for those potlucks and picnics
* pre-trip food prep
* grocery shopping: to perish or not to perish?
* skillets, spatulas, and stuff
* best brands for healthy eating

Healthy? Compared to What?   Feb 22, 2008
I don't often write bad reviews, but in this case, I had to. I saw good reviews from others and ordered this book, and now I wonder what world I don't live in that some people call "healthy." A big clue was in the introductory chapters discussing the various qualities of Cool Whip, Jell-O, and fake sugars, with the emphasis on baking and sweets.

If your idea of healthy, easy, clever RV cooking means using ingredients like fake fat, fake sugar, fake eggs, fake milk, Cool Whip Lite or Free, Jell-O (sugar-free, of course), Diet Mountain Dew(!!!), instant powdered juice mixes, reduced calorie white bread, processed cheese, pre-chopped vegetables, canned vegetables, canned meats, canned soups, and the like, then this is for you. The breakfasts are sugary (fake) or gloppy (the Mushroom Scrambled Eggs actually has a whole can of cream of mushroom soup with 8 eggs and canned mushrooms all scrambled together!). The main dishes are mostly canned soups (usually cream of something), canned meat, canned vegetables, low-fat cheese, and starch ("minute" versions stripped of all their food value) in various combinations. Many of the vegetable and salad dishes (little fresh produce even here) have sugar (fake) added to them, even the potato salad. The desserts have such combinations as canned fruit cocktail, Jell-O, Cool Whip Lite or Cool Whip Free, Diet Mountain Dew, pudding mix, and fake sugar -- for a fresh summery taste! says the recipe.

There is hardly a real, fresh ingredient in the book -- except occasionally onions, celery, green papper, and potatoes. I didn't find any whole grains. No fresh greens anywhere -- maybe I missed that recipe? Canned Cream of X soup seems to be the magical glue in one recipe after another. Even the Healthy Request versions of these contain fillers, salt, preservatives, and yes, sugar. And much of the so-called "healthy" non-fat stuff has starch or fake fillers to replace the fat and flavor. I have nothing against using less fat and salt and sugar, but simply use less, don't fill up on processed replacements that keep the cravings alive.

When I am on the road, I try to use healthy foods (meaning fresh meats and fruits and vegetables -- or frozen) with easy combinations for a fresh taste. Don't most RVs have refrigerators and freezers? Are these people traveling in some grocery-free wilderness? You don't need a huge refrigerator to include some fresh produce in it. I do use canned goods too, such as tomatoes or tuna or stock, and starches such as rice, pasta, or potatoes to sometimes make combinations, but not like this. My cupboard has spices and herbs for flavor, not canned Cream of X soups.

This is a throwback to the fifties "convenience" combinations -- updated with recent fake-food fads for those with sugar and fat cravings that must be satisfied with highly-processed substitutes.
The Open Road Cookbook  Jan 28, 2007
What a great book! Minimal ingredients and wonderful sounding recipes. It's definitely coming on my next trip.
Good Food- Fast!  Aug 25, 2006
I like this cookbook because it kept to basic ingredients. There is nothing worse than wanting to try a recipe and having to spend extra money on ingredients you will only use in one recipe. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but am looking forward to it soon.
Eat Well While Traveling  Jul 24, 2006
I discovered this book when it was featured in Highways magazine. Learning to cook decent meals in an RV can be tricky. There's little counter space, minimal cupboard space and the fridge won't hold much, unless you have a top-of-the-line motorhome.
We've figured out some easy meals on our own such as fajitas using frozen pre-seasoned meat, but it's good to expand our repetoire. I like that Lund tries to use low-fat ingredients, limited ingredients, and keep the recipes fast and easy. The nutritional info is included for each recipe.
A must have for RV'ers !  Feb 23, 2006
After seeing JoAnna Lund make some easy dishes on the RV Today series, I decided that I would like to have a copy of her book. This book is a must have for RV'ers and home cooks alike! The book is full of easy, healthy and tasty receipes that you can make quickly. And, with a miminal amount of ingredients, they are very simple and quick to make, making them perfect for a working family or travelling RV'er that likes to have a home cooked meal after a long day at the office or on the road. Great book!
