Off to “OooooooOK-Lahoma!
And what will I eat for 7 hours while my family drives to those wind-swept plains?
Thinking about it is important.
Because I’ve learned that what I pack IN the cooler will pack ON my thighs later, if I’m not careful!
Cooler #2, the cold stuff:
Contents: pomegranate seeds (yummy and HEALTHY.) grapes, carrots, apples, avocado half (I eat this out of the shell with a throw-away spoon), cranberry juice (I mix concentrate into a full water bottle), almond butter (I’ll spread this on Ezekial Bread -not pictured- or onto a banana or dip carrots into it or apple slices), bananas.
AND chia seeds. I’ll mix 2 table spoons into glass of water and stir just before we leave. In a few minutes it’ll form into a gel, like runny jello or tapioca pudding. I drink it or spoon it out of the glass. Chia is full of good stuff and energy which helps me stay alert while I drive.
OOps! I forgot to include the boiled eggs and celery sticks in the pictures above.
There’s lots of other choices I could have made, but this is what I had on hand.
The important thing is to pack IN your cooler/basket what WON’T pack ON your thighs later or clog your brain while you drive.
What do you eat when you drive long hours?
