I just purchased a small pressure cooker for my camper - good for quickly cooking whole grains, beans (well I haven't tried beans yet - a little worried about 'frothing' up), and oatmeal. I've had great brown/wild rice in under 10 minutes, also steel-cut oatmeal which normally takes around 45 minutes in about 7 minutes. Saves fuel and is good for you!!

Other than that, what everyone else said - lots of fruit, vegies, and nuts. If you're moving around rather than staying in one place, local markets can be a lot of fun and a source of great food. I pretty much ate my way over the Canadian rockies this summer buying from farmers stands alongside the road - the only dry spot was a couple of days when I was actually in the parks.

Jan, this is a good idea, but not what this topic is about.

JeffLynne is looking for [b]Heart Healthy, [b]no or minimal refrigeration on the road.
I realize that but someone else said about cooking the spaghetti on the road and having it with frozen sauce to also help keep the food cook. My comment was for cooking the spaghetti and adding it to that package.

Also, I believe K-Mart handles canned bacon. That is always in my "emergency" supplies.

Canned soup, boxed soup and the infamous "Ramen" noodles (which can be fixed as soup or a side dish - made with less water).

Stews in a can are good and you also get chili in a can.

Kevin and I follow South Beach. He has lost 40 pounds while I follow the diet and cheat within it, so I have lost only 10 pounds.
We have no trouble following the diet while traveling in our Li'l Jenny. We make eggs and sausage in the AM usually, have a salad for lunch (most often away from the Burro as we explore), and then meat and veggies for supper. Our most common supper is sauerkraut and brats, as it is easy to make and easy to keep.
We use the propane stove, a microwave, and a small slow cooker while on the road.
