We are going to the beach! Hooray! I am so excited I can hardly wait.
We leave Sunday and will return on Thursday and that equals A LOT of eating out. A. Lot! But we are trying to watch what we eat which is pretty difficult if not impossible when eating three meals/two snacks a day at restaurants. Restaurants = sugar + sodium + more sugar in amounts more than should be ingested in a month, let alone one meal.
So, to help my family make better decisions food-wise, I have decided to pack along some healthier options. Our hotel provides a refrigerator and microwave in our room which will help immensely with healthy dining/snack options. Here are some kits I plan to put together for the road trip and hotel. I have linked to recipes and products where applicable so you can see exactly what I plan to pack/make.
