odds are that even the shadiest motel will have a coffeemaker. and a coffeemaker means you will have hot water. so look in the cup of soup section [nile, health valley and dr macdougall's are the brands to look for] for the lentil curry, black bean soup, leek potato or whatever flavor floats your boat. they're all add hot water and they have pretty decent nutritional info for being just add water [the black bean soup has something like 13g fiber in the large cup]. thai kitchen and simply asia also make noodle carts that you add water to and dehydrated veggies pair very well with those. look for close grocery stores or convenience stores as well. the convenience stores won't have a huge selection, but you may be able to find some veggies and yogurt and such.

Is it possible for you to take a smallish cooler and several ice packs?? I don't know where the town is, but if its anywhere near a "tourist" area, even the campsites like KOA usually have small stores where you can obtain ice to resupply. You can probably find yogurt, cheese, lunchmeat, etc locally, and resupply after a night or two....
Your other option is to take the old standby "protein" type bars (Clif, Larabar, Zone...) and have one or two for a meal... Trail mix with dried fruit and roasted soy nuts....Peanut Butter and Triscuits, etc.....
Don't overlook any Farmer's Markets that might be selling seasonal produce!! :)
Good Luck! patti

Out of necessity I eat six small meals a day, pretty evenly spaced out. I have learned not to let myself go longer than every three hours or so without eating. So far when traveling I have been able to get a hotel room with a fridge and microwave so I can get things like Greek yogurt, Quaker Real Medleys (oatmeal), and other healthy things. These are meals, not snacks, and I need to make sure to get enough calories.
So, on my next trip I have not been able to secure a room with a fridge/microwave. It is in a small rural area and there isn't a lot of choice in hotels. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas of things that I eat that will secure enough calories for me and make me full enough for a few hours? I am afraid that nuts and berries for several days just isn't going to be adequate!
