My Husband and I get the bug... its bad.. ok not really!
WE LOVE TO TRAVEL! We don't stay put for very long. We have slowed it down quite a bit because it is so hard to travel and eat well. I have been determined this year to be more prepared when we travel so that we don't have to stop and grab a bite at a window. (know what I mean?)
Well Monday this week, we decided to load up our kids and travel across the country to visit my husband's sister who just had her first child. We mapped it out, 14 hours one day, 14 hours the next, and 8 the following. We wanted to travel efficiently and not eat garbage food all day. I got out the cooler and chopped up some honey dew, strawberries, and cucumbers. Then I got some apples and bananas, a bag of spinach, grapes and some peppers. I even drained and rinsed a couple of cans of black beans and out it all in the cooler.
My husband and I had "salads" while we drove. I place spinach, grapes, and broccoli in a bag and just eat it by the handful. The grapes make for a great "dressing" flavor.
We even stopped and ate out at taco bell..... I know it's not the best, but the kids got refried bean burritos (no cheese no sauce) and My husband and I got veggies burritos no cheese or sour cream. There are some options out there is you look hard :)
The extra effort put in to packing the healthy snacks was well worth it!
Every time the kids asked for something I had plenty healthy options on hand.
