Survival Snack Ideas for Road Trips

In Clean Eating, Exercise, Family Nutrition, Healthy Eating, Nutrition Advice, Weight Loss Tips On July 7, 2014 0 Comments

My family recently spent a week at my in-laws lake house in Vermont! Lots of sun, swimming, boating and fishing! FYI – Miss Daisy is only so/so when it comes to the water. Ventured out reluctantly when son # 4 coaxed her but she seemed much happier sitting on the beach or chasing bugs…

Although we had a home base and I was able to cook for the family, we still spent quite a bit of time in the car and someone was always STARVING…. Being prepared is key for both healthy eating and saving money!

Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the Daisies… With Daisy

I love to run! Running has always been my go-to form of exercise but lately I have to be honest – my running has felt flat. I think it is a combination of busy schedules, deadlines and the end of the school year craziness that seems to suck the life out of you. I am sure some of this is also a result of the almost nonexistent spring here in New Hampshire. Seriously – I was wearing mittens and a winter jacket at son # 4′s baseball tourney this past weekend. Regardless of the reason, the bottom line is – I am struggling with getting myself out the door.
