In my world simplicity is the mother of invention... a little traveling advice.

My husband always says, necessity is the mother of invention... in my traveling days, I say simplicity is the mother of invention!

We are away in Seattle, WA for a family wedding... loving seeing all our family, we are spread out all over the world now... and the last time we were all together in one place was 21 years ago!! So much has happened in that time... and it is simply fun to witness time and changes and the growth of our family!

But traveling as a raw vegan can be well, overwhelming. It's all a state of mind. It's all good. Really. Simply good. When on the road I keep one rule: keep things simple...rawlly good very simple.

When going on a trip I first find out where the juice bar, the organic health food store, and the raw vegan friendly restaurants are... then I search for a place to stay near by... so I know I can take care of myself no matter what. We rented an apt. nearby with a kitchen that gives us the possibility of pulling things together if we want to.

Once upon arriving, we did a small shop of basics fruit, some veggies, and gluten free snacks (1 of my kids are gluten free) so that we have what we need. At this time of the year, fresh produce markets are everywhere which is a delight! and there is just so much choice of delisciousness to be had.. so it's easy.
So far I have been happily surprised with unexpected juice bars that make me smile and shine!

So a little research to get your basics goes a long way.. and life will do the rest to surprise you with little gifts here and there and everywhere. The key is to keep things simple. To know, that you can find delisciousness in the simplest of foods and be fully nurtured and satisfied with them. There will always be time for fancier meals... but simple days filed with fun loving family adventures mean the world to me!
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
