Hey guys! When I'm traveling, I always like to keep good snacks around. I don't like to be without my go-to's - it really relieves some stress for me since I know I will always access to something I like and that I know is healthy. Can you relate?
Zak and I recently went on a road trip up (just a few hours) to Vermont to go skiing with his law firm. Here's some snacks that I brought with me that were easy to transport in the car!
Nuts are a delicious (especially if you choose roasted & salted) snack that are filling and satisfying. All nuts are good - I brought peanuts with me, but if you prefer cashews, walnuts, etc. bring those! Single-serving packets of nuts are great for portion control. You can find them at many grocery stores and on Amazon.
As bell pepper are perishable but last for a while out of the fridge, they work well for shorter car trips. I also brought with me a knife with a sheaf (a covering) so I could slice and eat them while Zak was driving. Peppers have a great crunch and can be (!) a good alternative to pretzels or chips. Red, orange, and yellow peppers are sweeter - I typically prefer these - but the green ones are usually cheaper!
One of my other favorite filling and tasty snacks is turkey or beef jerky. I got a question recently about turkey jerky being "processed" - it isn't, in the way you may be thinking. It's typically just dried meat - like you dry out grapes to make raisins.
I also wanted to introduce you guys to ThredUp! They are a second-hand online clothing company that has not only amazing (I really couldn't believe it) deals but amazing brands! Jcrew, Calvin Kline, Adidas - and so many types of clothing and accessories - formal wear, high end workout clothes (that I would never buy on my own!), purses, etc. etc.
You guys know I talk a lot about saving money on food without sacrificing health - why not do the same for clothing?! Seems like a no-brainer to me :)
