We made it safely to Ohio last night around midnight and boy is it cold! Mercy I don't care for the North. We are up here to celebrate Jon's grandpa turning 90 years young! Isn't that amazing? I wanted to share my go-to travel style and a few healthy snack options to keep you on track if you are traveling during the holidays.
Our car trip was about 8 hours so of course I made sure to wear something comfortable - basically pajamas without screaming pajamas and feeling awkward walking into a gas station to pee. I love oversized tunics for comfort and because they keep me warm in my freezer box of a car. Is it only my husband who blasts the cold air on road trips? These particular tunics are a favorite of mine because of their fit and how they cover my butt. I have this pretty pastel color too! You can bet your bottom - no pun intended :) - I wore my zella leggings because there are no greater leggings in all the land! Add some slip ons and we're all done here! I added the beanie and my favorite leather jacket for pit stops so I don't freeze my booty off. Oh and yes - I had to snag a Mimi's Creamery Coffee! So proud of my husband and his new found knowledge of espresso's and latte's!
Now on to the important stuff... the food. I don't know about you, but when I'm traveling is when I want to eat the worst. Something about being out of routine and off my schedule makes me want a large salty french fry and the world's largest soft drink in a styrofoam cup. So to keep myself from being bad I pack a small bag with some goodies so I can snack, but snack properly.
- cuties/bananas/apples because they are easy to throw in a bag
- almond butter for the above fruit
- trail mix. I made my own because it's so much cheaper than store bought and you get double!
- lara bars/protein bars
- kashi cookes
- mio for my water
- annnnnd I have to mention that my favorite road trip snack... not so healthy and a tad bit gross is............. ranch sunflower seeds. Yeah I'm gross. I suck on them, eat the seed and then spit the shell into a bottle. So not cute :-/
