• I am traveling this weekend with my son to a tournament. What can I do to best prepare?

  • Oh yes… such a great topic! We’ll dive into this a bit more next week but our favorites are easy grab and gos – mixed nuts, hard boiled egg, veggies and hummus, sliced apples + nut butter. I picked up this great travel cooler at Target a couple months ago for this exact reason – on the road travel. It has a little velcro opening for each access. You can also get fancy and pre make breakfast cookies (great for snacking) or a homemade granola too… I’d love to hear what others bring for these sorts of occasions!

  • Erin – last year, I spent days in a motel while working on a project. I tried to save money by eating breakfast at the motel, but generally the options were a carby, sugary mess. Since I had a fridge in my room, I brought a bunch of hardboiled eggs, and ate one or two of them each morning for breakfast with a banana or apple, provided by the motel. It was just enough, and much better than if I’d baked my own waffle and drowned it in syrup. In the past we’ve always discussed making a personal trail mix to bring along as well. With a little planning, you can bring with you enough stuff to eat better!

  • Love these ideas! Some other non-refrigerated options include Chomps beef jerky, raw or slightly toasted nuts or sunflower seeds, fresh fruit (apples, bananas, and clementines are great for on-the go), and gluten-free crackers (Simple Mills, Mary’s Gone Crackers). Let us know how it goes!

  • Thank you so much! I will have to travel with my son, both this weekend and next. It is really tricky to plan.
