Eating and drinking on the road
From a post by a new member, Jimmy B:

Just wondering if anyone else has any ideas they'd like to share about their food regimens while travelling.
We found it very difficult to get 'healthy' foods in the developing countries. You can't safely eat raw fruits or vegetables or salads without soaking them in a bleach solution first, which is not too appetizing.
Are there special foods you swear by? Dairy products, including yogurt, were off our list, but we did find a wonderful full-fat milk powder which comes from NZ in sealed foil pouches, and which can be mixed with treated water to make excellent milk.
Do you take vitamins, if so, which ones? We always took at least a multi-vitamin and Vitamin C, but found it difficult to get Vitamin C in swallowable tablets in South America. They prefer chewable or effervescent tablets.
