Preparing for a healthy Bon Voyage

When you go somewhere fantastic you want your body to look fantastic to boot. Especially when you’ll be showing off those bikini-clad curves on a yacht under Caribbean skies. You’ve booked a yacht charter to get away from all those wrinkle-inducing stresses. You’ve gone on a diet hoping to fit into that size one below the last bikini you bought. But what are you going to do once you’re on that boat? You want to keep that fabulous physique, and besides, you’ll need the energy to uncast those sails, it can be heavy work! You’ll need good nutrition to keep you going strong. Here are some pro tips on preparing your cooking station for a healthy feast before your voyage.

Prepare your meals, hot and cold

Your whole world is moving, so preparing as much as possible on dry land will make your life a whole lot easier once water bound. Portion Tupperware meals for a quick reheat. Consider cold options too, salads will keep for a couple of days if well refrigerated. Of course some wobbly sea prep is to be expected, it’s all part of the adventure.

Keep it simple

You’re on a yacht, your kitchen probably isn’t huge. Multiple courses mean using valuable resources and are much more work to prepare. Keep it simple, one nice course will set you straight. Dessert can always be store bought.

Keep it small

When you do prepare food keep it small. Manageable bite sizes are easier to plate, and easier to cut.

Cups and mugs

Speaking of plating dishes, don’t. Use a mug, it’s a hellova lot less messy. Food on a plate can slide, food in a mug is neatly contained. On especially choppy waters, cup holders help keep hands free for grabbing on.

A sip for everyone

Airpots are like a thermos flask only larger and with a dispenser. While a thermos flask is portable, airpots hold more liquid and having a couple of them means that people can choose their beverage as they please throughout the day.

There are many clever and cunning ways you’ll find to make your life aboard a yacht as easy and relaxing as possible. If you have any tricks up your sleeve, share your useful tips. Go in search of fresh produce while docked. Locally grown produce is better for the environment, better for your body and better for your budget.

Booking a last minute yacht charter can also save you big bucks which could be better put to use creating delicious and healthy homemade ready meals.
