eating vegan on vacation [Apr. 11th, 2012|07:49 pm]
cheap vegan eats


Hello. First time poster here... Hope some of you can give me ideas.

I'm leaving for Hawaii in a week. I'll be there long enough that I won't be able to handle eating out everyday, nor afford it. All I will have in the room is a microwave and fridge, and I don't want to have to buy all frozen, microwaveable dishes, or eat all my fresh foods raw since it's really hard on my digestion. 

Does anyone have experience with microwave "cooking"? What healthy things do you like to make? Steaming veggies in the microwave is easy and boring - looking for a little bit more than that!

Will definitely need to get my veggies in so I don't feel yucky and sluggish. I'm sure I'll figure things out once I'm at the supermarket and see what's available, but I'd like to hear from you. Thanks in advance. :)

i searched 'vegan microwave recipes' in youtube (google probably works too but i prefer watching things done than reading recipes) and came up with a few interesting selections

the following is a raw recipe but you could most probably add some beans and microwave for three to five minutes or more and it should turn out great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XxqIsXoW-o

Thanks! Those sound good. Unfortunately some of it does not sound doable for me since I won't have any cooking utensils (I'll have to buy a knife at the market, most likely, but I don't want to have to spend money on anything else I won't be using more than once).

I might want to try some of those out at home though, since they sounds pretty easy. I didn't think of searching youtube, but I'll start doing that from now on. Google is good, but I like talking to other vegan creative minds who come up with their own stuff. :)
