Happy Monday everyone! I’m so excited to be blogging from my hometown in Washington following a 13 hour drive Saturday with our Dirty Half Dozen.
And thanks to a little planning, the trip was actually … awesome. The kids did great, we made good time and even managed to save enough money on travel snacks to be able to afford gas for the trip home–ha!
So this week I’ll be sharing some THRIVE friendly tips for surviving those summer road trips without breaking the bank or loosing your mind. And as always, you should be able to pull together these easy snack ideas without a run to the store
Today’s feature: 3 easy snacks for the road or camp ground.
1) Empty peanut butter jar + celery sicks
Finally a way to have p.b. and celery without the mess. Fill an empty jar with an inch or two of peanut butter and then fill with celery sticks. Kids get a yummy snack without sticky fingers and the car stays free of kid schmeer.
2) Empty sour cream container + empty baby food jar
A quick way to pull off carrots and dressing without the dragging the jar along or buying those expensive to-go dressing singles.
3) Empty 32 oz. yogurt container + single serving yoplait
Easy peasy fruit slices and dip. So yummy straight from the cooler at a camp site or rest stop.
So there you go–easy straight-from-the-recycling-bin solutions for eating well on the road.
I’ll be back on Wednesday with some great ideas for keeping the kids entertained.
