Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful Friday.
We took the kids to the Calgary Stampede today! And let me tell you, I’m beat. We walked around and around and around…..went on rides…..played games……ate…….bought a Vitamix! (That’s the part that I was happy about 🙂 The kids had a great time. I mean why wouldn’t they?! Games, rides, and food equals happy kiddos.
While we were at the Stampede, we were tempted by all the different types of food vendors. Pizza, corn dogs, mini donuts, ice cream, burgers, cotton candy. Typical fair food. And because I’m gluten-free and dairy-free, none of these were an option for me. Also, knowing that it would be extremely hard to find healthy food options, I knew I had to bring my own food.
Here is a list of some go-to snacks that I like to bring along on trips:
- hard boiled egg
- 1/4 cup of nuts
- fruits such as an apple, banana, orange, blueberries
- veggies such as sugar snap peas, grape tomatoes, and baby carrots
- 1 Tbsp natural nut butter spread between 2 slices of gluten-free or whole wheat bread
- string cheese
- small container of yogurt
- small protein bar
- low-fat, whole grain muffin
- bottle of water
I have a little cooler bag that I can put my food in to keep it cool so it won’t spoil if I’m going to be out all day. I love bringing these types of foods with me when I’m unable to eat at home. This way I can save money and feel good about what I’m putting in my mouth!
