Travel food - Just a little planning ahead goes a long way and keeps you out of the drive thru, and allows for delicious, healthy food - to go!

Red and yellow bell peppers - they are sweet and crunchy, and not spicy. The little ones will even enjoy these summer beauties! If desired, pack individual containers of your favorite dressing for "dipping sauce."


Homemade trail mix - keep in cooler so chocolate won't melt. 

(Easy to double or triple this recipe)

  • 1 cup almonds

  • 1 cup banana chips

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients in a bag, then keep in your cooler so the chocolate chips won't melt. Enjoy!

Freeze grapes to keep food in your cooler cold as well as refreshing treats - what I always have at the beach!

Buy your lunch meat and all of your favorite fixings before hitting the road. Then, make sandwiches the night before and pack in zip top bags. Pack peanut butter and jelly if that's your favorite (or for the little ones) and remember things like avocado, tomato, mustard and mayo. Pack plastic knives, spoons and forks for the car, and re-use grocery bags for trash bags. Easy cleanup, and no tummy woes from drive-thru meals!
