You may have read about my slight control problem when it comes to food. It is something I will be working on in the next year. I love when the places I stay have kitchens so I can head to the market and pick up food that is healthier than constantly eating out.
The W two room flat had a beautiful kitchen fully equipped with oven, blender, coffee maker, dishwasher and refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser! I was in heaven!
One of the first things Josh and I did was head to the nearest grocery store (which is a good three mile walk). Here is a quick overview of what we got to keep in the house.
- 1 box of cereal and milk
- Plain, non-fat, Fage Greek yogurt
- Carrots and hummus
- Small corn tortillas and sliced turkey
- Two cans of low sodium soups
- Coffee filters (the previous guests had left an unopened can of lavazza ground coffee.. thank you!)
- Josh got some sort of instant lunch ramen. I let him get what he wants, it is his work-cation too…
$30 will give us 3 – 4 breakfasts, lunches and snacks while we are staying here not only saving us money but helping us eat a bit healthier while on the road! If you are traveling for vacation or work, I highly suggest trying to get a refrigerator sent to your room and stopping by a grocery to pick up some healthy snacks to keep inside.

I have yet to stay at a hotel with a kitchen, but what a benefit it must be! When we were in Italy it was torture going to all the outdoor markets and not be able to buy all the fish, fresh fruit and vegetables.
It has been great having the kitchen here, but I’m sure it’s the last time we will have a kitchen in a hotel room for awhile!
