While in Central California, take advantage of all the fresh fruits and veggies that are available. If you have a grill on board, use it to grill fish, chicken, beef, etc. as well as veggies such as zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, etc. (just brush with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, herbs). If you don't have a grill, roast veggies in your oven along with chicken, fish, etc. A rice/veggie steamer is a nice thing to have -- you can prepare fresh veggies with rice very quickly. Fresh fruit (plentiful along the CA and Mexican coasts) makes a great dessert. Have you ever tried grilling fruit? Delicious!! Keep your meals simple and you will be able to spend more time enjoying your trip. Happy Sailing!
