7 Simple Meals For Your Sailing Vacation
Every successful boating adventure has a thoughtful food plan. One essential tip before meal planning is to get preferences, allergies, or medical limitations in order to be sure to accommodate all of your guests. Simple meals are best. Nothing too fussy or too heavy. No one wants to eat a complicated meal on a hot day!
These 7 Simple Meals For Your Sailing Vacation are all just three ingredients (slightly more if you want to add some salt or other flavor enhancers), all filled with nutritious components, and they all take less than 15 minutes to prepare.
1. Smoked salmon egg-white wrap
Ingredients: Smoked salmon + egg whites + asparagus
This healthy meal puts a unique spin on breakfast. Cook your egg whites as if they’ll be an omelet but instead, they’ll be the “wrap” part. Then, layer it with smoked salmon and asparagus, season with some salt and pepper, and wrap it all up.
2. Avocado toast with a fried egg
Ingredients: Sprouted bread + avocado + egg
This satisfying option is easy to make and provides fiber, protein, and healthy fats. Top toasted sprouted bread with mashed avocado and a fried egg for a nutritional breakfast or brunch. Optional: Sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste and pop on a slice of tomato if you have one on hand.

I always love to have a few meat free meals on hand. Pick up veggie burgers you can cook on a skillet, pop it on a slice or two of whole-grain bread, and finish this off with a spread of hummus. You can add red onion and other fixings to jazz up this sandwich although it is tasty as is!

This filling chili can be prepared in less than 10 minutes. First, brown some ground beef, next, stir in kidney beans, and then add a salsa of your choice and you have a hearty, low-carb meal.
