Generally eat healthy food, lower cholesterol, less fat, more vegetables and fruit etc. I also believe all things in moderation including moderation. No point living to be 100 if you're not having some fun along the way.

Oliver, that top one looks like conch fritters at the Green Turtle Club. Some of the best in the islands.

That's like talk about the man who never smoked, never drank, never did drugs, never caroused with women and he was going to celebrate his 100th birthday. How?

I don't care how much red meat gets criticized, I'm in no way even tempted to give up steaks and especially, prime rib. I feel like I'm doing well that I don't eat beef every night.

The few things we have given up are things we honestly don't miss at all. Thought we had to have them but the adjustment was so easy.

Greetings,
To answer the actual question, when aboard and not underway we make use of the grill more so than the stove/oven although, a prime rib or a roast chicken HAS been known aboard. Whilst underway, mostly sandwiches. We have also had occasion to cook in the oven underway and enjoy a nice hot dinner at the end of the day.

I tend to do a lot of slow cooking. At any one time I will usually have about 20-30 meals in the boat freezer. Favourites include Osso Buco, Boeuf Bourguigion, various chicken curries, a couple of vegetarian selections etc.

I am also a big fan of risotto's, so i have a well stocked pantry. Fresh garlic and green ginger a must.Dark Indonesian Soy together with a really good balsamic vinegar allows you to make some wonderful dishes.

Fish ,lots of fish, usually wrapped in foil, our local oysters, don't get me started. The vegie steamer is a great addition as well.I don't have an oven on board though, which is a bit of a pity.

Wine. Well of course you need a good couple of Whites, a nice Pouilly Fume or two, and needing to support our local wine industry there is always some different Shiraz's hidden somewhere.Champagne, goes without saying.Of course you need to be able to offer some cold beers as well.Given that I probably drink to much wine I tend to steer clear of spirits( my body is a temple and all that)

Apart from that, I don't fuss over food too much.

Like RT said, all things in moderation, quality over quantity.

Fresh food is usually gone in the first week.

This reduces the food to frozen , which depending on the size of the freezer can be a short or long time, but it too eventually is empty and useful only for left overs , or chilling beverages.

That leaves dry and cans towards the end of the voyage as freeze dried or MRE are expensive for what you get.

For over a month the sheer volume of food required may tax most locker space

I would say we eat the same. Not healthier, not less healthy. Someone mentioned not snacking as much and I find that to be true.

We find ourselves in a marina every three days or so and eating at restaurants. We usually eat half our meal, then microwave it the next day for dinner. Other than that, we carry the non-refrigerated microwave meals (beef and potatoes or chicken and dumplings, for example) and add canned vegetables for a meal.

My galley is very small and primitive. Fridge with freezer, toaster oven, rice cooker, coffee pot, propane single burner (portable), elec hot plate (portable), small portable grill.

I had a microwave, but it is big and I found I rarely used it. So off the boat it went.

Big fan of the toaster oven. It is only about 500w so easily runs on 1kW inverter. Can fit a full brick of Stouffer's lasagna (favorite treat!!). Makes toast, can warm up things on a ceramic plate, cheese on crackers, etc, etc. Very versatile.

Coffee pot, rice cooker and elec hot plate easily run off inverter. Coffee pot has biggest draw of about 700w. Usually turn off fridge when making coffee, as it is right at limit of inverter.

Curried rice and sauteed fish and steamed frozen veggies- typical boat meal. Pretty healthy stuff.

Slow cooked meals are no problem when cruising. Can't be in a hurry as what the heck else are you going to do?? I'm much more patient cooking on the boat than when on the dirt.

If it is rough, that limits options. My galley kit is not very good at cooking when rough. Also at night it is right behind the helm and the lights bother the helmsman.

I also find that I lose a bit of weight and get better muscle tone when cruising. Good for me all around.

Also tend to spend less money. Fuel costs go up, but less opportunity to whip out the plastic when out there. Total monthly cc bill tends to go down.

I seem to be talking myself into another trip!!!
