At the end of this upcoming week we will leave to head to Atlanta for Spring Break. We are driving. I DON’T fly. In the past I have made sure to have menus of places that can safely feed Jon & I gluten-free. This time, I am going to really depend on packing food for us, as I am trying to save money and we tend to eat much healthier when I pack our food. We leave on Friday, after school and head to my Mom’s, about 1.5 hours away and will spend the night there. We will then get up at the butt crack of dawn and head out for Atlanta Saturday AM. So, here is what I am thinking for the cooler/car eats:
Salad (spinach w/grape tomatoes is my recent fav)
Sandwiches (toast bread before hand and then make sandwich)
Tuna Salad (to be eaten on toasted bread or on spinach salad)
KIND Bars (coconut/almond are my fav)
Rice Cakes w/PB
So, I am thinking that we won’t be going hungry! LOL! I plan to stock up on bottled water at Wal-mart before we leave as well to avoid having to buy water on the road. Too pricey. I will also pack Capri-Sun for the kids.
Once we are in Atlanta, we should be fine. Kroger is close by to my sister and they have the basics and I will have the bread. I am brining my cheap $10 toaster with us so that I don’t have to worry about CC with my sister’s stuff. It is small and easy to bring along.
I am hoping this helps to avoid the stops at McD’s/Wendy’s & the like on the way down & back. We have depended on those places in the past, but it is much easier not too and you don’t have to wait to eat if you can’t find anything that you can eat….HUGE, when you are out in the middle of no where.
