Healthy Road Trip Snacks

       Summer is almost here and so are the road trips!



   Do you have any road trips planned for the summer? My family takes at least one road trip every year. Our last trip was a 12-hour trip to go visit my mom and dad. I am not a big fan of traveling by car but for a big family like mine, it makes the most sense money wise. Now that the kids are older, it is easier for them as they do a great job of keeping themselves busy watching a movie. I think it is myself who is the worst traveler in the car. I have to keep myself busy so I don't drive my husband crazy by being a backseat driver. I always bring my computer, yea to having internet in the car! My husband does not mind driving as long as I pack plenty of snacks. Sure he prefers junk food but I have found some healthy snacks that meet his requirements for salty and sweet. He has to have both kinds of snacks to be a happy driver as well as his crazy music from the 70's and 80's.

Ten Great Road Trip Ideas For Traveling With Kids

 So here are some of my husband/kid approved healthy road trip car snacks. Some are sweet and some are salty but all are delicious. These healthy snacks will keep everyone happy in the car so you won't have to stop for food at unhealthy fast food places.



Good Health Sriracha Veggie Straws 



 These crunchy snackable straws are a family favorite. They are a guilt-free snack that is mom approved as they are packed with nutrients (vitamins!) from tomatoes, spinach, beets, broccoli, and carrots. The best part is this gluten-free and non-GMO snack doesn't taste like veggies! The Sriracha flavor has a mild spicy taste that the boys and I love. We also love the Sea Salt Straws.

Snikiddy Mac N’ Cheese Organic Baked Cheese Puffs


 If you love mac and cheese, then you will love these tasty puffs as they are inspired by kid's favorite snacks. They are an ultra-cheesy kid-approved snack without the messy hands. These puffs are also USDA Certified Organic and nut-free so all kids can enjoy.

Nutiva Organic O’Coconut 



 My teen has discovered coconut flakes and uses it in everything as he loves the taste. So he was happy for these single-serve packages of lightly sweetened coconut cookies that he can take for an on the go snack. These delicious cookies might taste sweet but they only have 3 grams of sugar per snack. I love that each treat has healthy coconut oil too. They are also USDA Certified Organic and non-GMO.

Enjoy Life Foods Grain & Seed Bars 



 While my family does not require gluten-free snacks, I am happy that these delicious bars are also made with plant-based ingredients that include ancient grains and seeds. These allergy-friendly bars come in some amazing flavors like Chocolate Marshmallow, Banana Caramel and more. My family loves the Maple Sweet Potato bar.

Country Archer Honey-Chipotle Turkey Jerky 



 While I don't eat meat, my boys are meat eaters and love jerky. So I make sure that the meat is raised without antibiotics and has no added hormones. The flavor of this turkey jerk sounds so delicious that even this vegetarian gal was craving a taste of the bold honey and chipotle flavor. A whole bag of the slowly marinated cage-free turkey jerky has 29 grams of protein and only 200 calories making it a great high-protein snack!

bare Fuji & Reds Apple Chips 


 Packing fruit for a road trip is so easy when apples come in a crunchy snack. My boys love these made from real apple slices "chips" and can quickly eat a whole bag of them in no time. I love that they are made without any oil, preservatives, or added sugar.

Which of these healthy snacks will you be taking on your next road trip?

Kitchfix Grain Free Waffles Are 100% Grain Free & Paleo

These delicious grain-free waffles are great for a Paleo diet!

                      I received samples of the mentioned product.

 The box may say grain-free but my taste buds sure did not believe that. These delicious waffles tasted like regular waffles that I made in a waffle iron. I had to try these Kitchfix waffles as I loved how healthy they were. The Blueberry Maple flavor was the thing that caught my eye in the store. My boys wanted to try the original grain-free waffles so I bought both flavors. I love how easy they were to make as I took them from the freezer to my toaster.


    I just love the healthier clean ingredients that these grain-free waffles are made from. I don't need to follow a gluten-free diet but I have many friends who do so I love letting them know about the healthy delicious foods that I discover. My friends who are following the Paleo diet will love these waffles too. My boys did not care one bit that the box said grain-free as they had delicious waffles. I was happy that the waffles had 8 grams of protein, that is more protein than one egg! The waffles are also low in carbs.

I found these yummy perfect for breakfast grain-free waffles at Sprouts but they are also available at many other stores. Kitchfix makes these delicious grain-free waffles in three flavors:
Original
Blueberry Maple
Banana Cinnamon
