As soon as I think I’m going to get a chance to fill you in on my Cape May trip, I am on yet another adventure. Isn’t that what the summer is for??
Before I jump back in the car, I thought I would share a couple of my road trip essentials. Check out these links!
Lara Bars. A great snack, or a way to tame your sweet tooth! My favorite flavors are peanut butter cookie, and chocolate chip brownie.
Justins Almond Butter Packs. I love these squeezable packs! Perfect for when your on the go. They can be added to oatmeal, fruit, or crackers for a great snack/meal.
Flax Packs. So glad I found these! Adding flax seeds to any meal or snack (salads, oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies), is a great way to up your fiber intake, and keep you feeling full. Carrington Farm’s flax packs makes my fiber portable =]
Water Bottle!! VERY IMPORTANT. Being in the car in very dehydrating, so having my reusable water bottle with me is a must. Dehydration can put quite a damper on your vacation. I have been using Klean Kanteen water bottles for a few years now. They are made of stainless steel, the caps are bpa free, and they keep my water colddd! Also, they offer a variety of sizes and styles.
Stevia and Sugar on the raw Packets. For some reason, road trips cause me to craveeee iced coffee! So when we do make a quick stop, I like to be prepared with a more natural sweetener to mix in my cold drink.
Ginger. I am lucky enough to have grown out of the motion sickness that I experienced when I was younger. Just in case, I always take some kind of ginger candies. (Gin Gin’s are my favorite!) Ginger is like nature’s tums or pepto-bismol, it is perfect for an upset stomach. (Check out this article) Since I tend to eat a little bit differently on vacation (who doesn’t?), I will sometimes chew on one of these after a meal or snack that may lead me to feeling bloated.
Mini Blender. This is not exactly an essential item to pack, but it can make life a little more convenient! If I have access to a kitchen on my vacation, I will sometimes bring my mini Cuisinart blender to make a smoothie. It’s small size is perfect for traveling!
So where am I off to now?
You’ll find out soon enough.
