Thanks for the great advice! I'll call the hotel today to check out if they have ice machines...Unfortunately, gas stations don't sell ice in The Netherlands :(

Just to be clear, I'm not traveling to The Netherlands, I'm already there! I've lived here most of my life (I was born in Aruba and moved here with my mom when I was 9 months old) :D

HaHa! Thanks!!!

Also, if the Hotel doesnt have ice machines or you dont want to use those, you can go to a gas station, usually there is at least one by hotels. You can buy your ice there. Hopefully they have ice machines at hotels in the netherlands LOL

Since you are staying at the hotel, why not just bring your food in the cooler like you had planned but then get ice from the Hotel when you need more? That way all your food will be able to stay cool and you wont have to worry about throwing it away. Hope that at least helps you!

That sounds awesome, have a great time! It can be high in calories but you can make your own granola and it stores for a week. You can add what ever you like to it.

Also those tuna pouches (in water) don't need to be refrigerated and travel easily.

I don't know how you feel about cold beans but if you have a can opener you can open a can and drain it in your room as well.

There are also lots of fruits that do okay with out being refrigerated (apples, pears, pomegranates, persimmons, grapes etc).

First off, are you coming from the U.S.? If so, you probably won't be able to bring any fresh food with you. If you're coming from the U.K., check this web site: www.netherlands-embassy.org.uk/econo

. Sorry, but I didn't quickly find any information about bringing food from the U.S. into The Netherlands.

However, if The Netherlands are anything like the U.K. in terms of fresh, healthy food that is easily available, then you're in luck. I spent several months in London and found the food to be better in terms of freshness and ease of availablility than in the U.S.

Good luck and enjoy your visit.

Hey y'all,

I need some serious advice...In two weeks, I will be going away for a weekend to attend the Les Mills Mega Quarterly here in The Netherlands!!! Three days of fun, two days of workshops and masterclasses (check out: www.lesmills.com) and one great party Saturday night!!!

Since I am really committed to Eating Clean and don't really like alcohol that much, I don't really have a problem to bring lots of healthy foods with me for the weekend.

The problem is: I'll be staying in a hotel for two nights and won't be able to properly store food which needs to be refrigerated. I do plan on taking a cooler with me and I'll be able to keep some of the food cool until maybe Saturday afternoon, tops. But what to do about Saturday night, Sunday morning and Sunday afternoon...

I'm not sure about the refrigerator size in the room and I don't want to take food with me that I ultimately would have to throw away because I can't store it properly :s

Do any of you have advice about what to take with me that doesn't need to be kept refrigerated? Thanks in advance!
