I really knew my body could not handle a weekend full of eating out and I didn't want to feel sluggish while on vaca since I am not used to that kind of eating-- and really why spend the money doing that when there are things we could do with that money! So I came up with a plan to stick with our clean eating style and still have fun!! Here are some tips that I have come up with to help with clean eating while traveling!!
1.) Pack your own snacks!
A 4- hour car ride with two little boys sounds bad enough- add in convenience snacks full of sugar and dyes...no thanks!! Plus, have you ever heard the food rule about never buying fuel for your body where you’d buy fuel for your car? Genius!!
Pack smart, portable foods: reusable containers of nuts, pre-washed and cut vegetables with hummus (if you have a cooler), almond or peanut butters, easy-to-transport fruit such as apples or bananas, containers of berries, dried organic fruit, homemade trail mix, protein bars, pre-portioned oatmeal, sliced cheese, whole-grain crackers or rice cakes, sandwiches...the list goes on!!
