Road Trip!

goodie bag 1

Hello from the road! We have been packing the apartment away & finally hit the road to good ol’ Boston! Hopefully no delays for both the moving van or us, cause we are ready to call Boston our new home!

While on the road or in the air, I always get myself into predicaments…with my food judgement that is. When stopping at rest stops to fill up the tank or relieve your own tank (hehe) there are only a few options to pick from, whether it be Starbucks, McDonalds, Subway or just a gas station convenient store. At the airport you are typically in the same situation. You can pick & choose over all the candy and snacks you want, but you will typically not find the best for your belly. To avoid my easily swayed brain away from all the treats that I could engulf myself in, I typically pack a goodie bag for the car ride or flight & let me tell you, it never disappoints…and trust me, after you scarf down a Big Mac you will be wishing you listened to me!

  • Bag of organic baby carrots
  • 1 Oskri bar (any kind, they are all yum)
  • 1 apple & 1 pear
  • Bottle of water *
  • Small bar of dark chocolate…love the chili dark chocolate – your mouth gets too hot so you can’t eat the entire bar!
  • Napkins (I tend to get messy)

*While flying chug, literally CHUG water! This is the perfect way to stay de-puffed & fresh for your arrival. I always feel so bad for the poor people sitting next to me if I happen to be in the isle seat or window though…restroom breaks happen way too often!

Now get on the road or fly away & hit up all your Memorial Day parties this weekend. Be safe!

  1. Good ideas!!! I wish I had packed a few items for my flight to Chicago via Charlotte! No drinks were served on the way to Chharlotte, however, drinks were served from Charlotte to Chicago! Snacks were offered for a price. Fortunarely, I had some time to grab a bite to eat before boarding my flight to Chicago. The only thing I took on the flight was a very light blanket, but now I know to pack wrapped snacks and bottled water as well!
