When I hit the road last year on my 3-week trek to Metropolis, Illinois, I loaded the freezer in the RV with packages of chicken breasts, hot dogs, ground beef, steaks and salmon. I didn't really buy anything extra as I had these in the house freezer already.
I cooked most of my meals and didn't do too much in the way of restaurant stops. That saved a lot of money. Plus, I made my own coffee in the morning and put what I didn't drink into a Thermos.

Generally, I kept my meals simple. For steaks, hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken, I used my Weber barbecue. The only meats I cooked inside were the salmon filets.
When I would get low on food supplies, I would buy my groceries at Walmarts along the way.
