  • We went on 2 1 week vacations this past summer. We brought food for breakfasts and lunches and went out to eat for dinner each evening. I made a ton of pancakes and froze them in ziplocs and brought whole wheat bagels. For lunches, I prepared some casseroles and put them in one serving containers and also brought bread and cold cuts. Not only is eating out expensive for 3 meals a day, but you really don't know what exactly you're eating. If you have a fridge or full kitchen on vacation, I say take advantage of it.

  • We usually stay in a condo so we have a kitchen.

  • When we travel we usually stay with family or friends who feed us very well. When we went to disney world we did brown bag lunches.

  • We camp in a Travel Trailer... so I cook, we grill, and at least once we eat out. But I basically take what in my fridge and move it to the camper.

  • When we go on vacations we always go out to eat, but if we are staying in a hotel with a fridge, stove, etc then we will also go shopping and cook meals at the resort as well (:

  • When we go on vacation....I get a break, so we usually eat out. If there's a fridge in the hotel room, we do keep milk and cereal for breakfast, and I always take some fruit and snacks....but the main meals we generally eat out.
