Getting Started - "Kitchen" Basics for the Hotel

You're ready to start eating healthier in your hotel room (or even your own kitchen at home). But what can you do in such a tiny space with limited resources? Almost anything you want!

Here's a beginner's list of items you need to prepare healthy meals in your room:
  • Electric skillet with lid
  • Hot Pot and/or single burner and sauce pot
  • Microwave
  • Mini-fridge (or the ability to buy fresh food daily)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Fork/Knife/Spoon
  • Big non-scratch cooking spoon with no holes (so you can scoop sauces)
  • Can opener
  • Measuring cup
  • Chef's knife
  • Cutting board
  • Plate or bowl (or even Tupperware)
  • Large water/beer glass
  • Wine glass (stemless is easiest to wash in a small hotel sink)
  • Corkscrew of your choice
I recommend you invest in a Rubbermaid bin large enough to keep all your kitchen items. It makes moving to new hotels easier, and keeps all your similar items together.

Some totally optional items I like to keep with me:
That's it! Now all you need is some healthy food prepared in a great-tasing way. Recipes to come...
