Is it odd that my food takes up more room than my luggage? Nah. Not when your on a 3+ day roadtrip, and trying to eat healthy! Here’s a few of my portable staples that I brought along:
-Bag o’ Bars -Trail Mix -Protein Packs -Fruit -Seaweed -Homemade Energy Bars in addition to… almond butter, sweet potatoes, and sprouted bread! Plenty of emergency almond butter sandwiches were made!
Breakfasts have been overnight oats- the perfect thing for when you have to jump in the car at 3 am! We had 3 almost empty nut butter jars (don’t ask how that happened;) ) so it was perfect timing for cool, refreshing oats for a change.
Conveinence is key, and as much as I love my salad and Hippie Bowls, neither of them classify as easy to eat! With this in mind, I bought a pack of Ezekiel tortillas and the wrap invasion began. Not that I’m complaining! I’m in love with tempeh, hummus, and veggie filled wraps along with one of my all time favorites-obviously the banana, avocado, and almond butter:)
Dinners have either been on the grill or on the go! I did a quick grill on these balsamic and thyme marinated Portabellas, which turned out incredible. Mental note: eat more mushrooms!
In addition, I’ve been calling an embarrasing amount of Chipolte and Zaba’s bowls dinners. I get the same thing every time: black beans, brown rice, veggies, pico, and an extra big scoop of guacamole. It never disappoints!
Last but definitely not least, dessert! Nothing is more refreshing than this summer salad of watermelon, strawberries, mint, and lime. All of these flavors work so well together and get even better the next day!
Finally, product loving!

Oh my goodness, I am in LOVE with beets right now. I’ve been throwing them into salads, sandwiches, and on the grill, and a beet smoothie is on my list for sure! I love these Love Beets- they make beets so conveinent. This concept of easy packaging for beets is longgg overdue! Plus, they have an amazing burst of vinegar flavor. Next up is Cindy’s Kitchen Fat Free Balsamic, which is the perfect mix of sweet and salty. I actually bought fat free by accident, but it is incredible, especially as a marinade! Finally, I caved into buying these Acai Unsweetened Smoothie Packs. At first, I didn’t know if I like the flavor, but I now use half a pack with a bit of added honey in my smoothies and it adds such a boost (flavor and health wise!)
Until next time!
