What I cook
Most hostels have a small compliment of pots and pans that
you can use. What to buy to eat is always a challenge.
Here is a list of what I like to eat:
Pasta with sauce: quick, easy, cheap. Just add water and boil.
Frozen pizza: many types of toppings, just heat it up.
Cous cous with cup-a-soup: tasty. Just add water and boil
Musseli with yogurt: my usual breakfast. Even eat dry muesli
from the box.
Frozen veggies: need your greens sometimes, just add water
and heat up.
Bread with jam or cheese: fast and easy and doesn’t require
Instant rice with cup-a-soup: add hot water and mix.
Gazpacho: I hate the taste but it’s good for you, as it is made
from pure vegetables.
Microwave dinners: makes you look like the iron chief in
Cookies/biscuits/chocolate/trail mix: great for travelling and
Instant mashed potatoes: surprisingly tasty and
Canned food: open it up and eat.
Fresh fruit with veggies: and it’s even good for you.
Cereal in a box: just add milk or pour directly into mouth.
Multi-vitamins: just add water or any of the above.
My ultimate: instant mashed potatoes + cup-a-soup + pasta.

Note: Australians (Aussi) eat Vegemite and New Zealanders
(Kiwis) eat Marmite. If you are not an Aussi or Kiwi and it is
offered to you……just say “No!”
