My family took a road trip this weekend and although family trips are fun, anyone with kids can attest that hungry travelers will be grumpy travelers so packing food to go is essential! Ideas for travel foods include:
Beef Jerky – Trader Joe’s carries organic gluten free jerky and I also recommend the beef jerky from Paleo Brands
Almonds, cashews, and walnuts
Unsweetened Dried Fruit
All of the above food items can be packed easily for trips in the car or carried on the airplane!
Speaking of snacks, here is a fun idea for a summer time snack at home:
Cucumbers (I used lemon cucumbers)
Using a hand held chopper, finely chop a handful of sliced almonds. Place the chopped almonds in a small bowl and add a pinch of sea salt if desired. Thinly slice the cucumbers and coat both sides with the nuts by pressing the cucumber slice firmly into the nut mixture. Crunchy, nutty, and fun!
