ORANGE IS MY NEW SNACK!

ORANGE IS MY NEW SNACK!

Small tomatoes fresh from the garden.  Crisp bell peppers and chips.  Carrot chips!  They are a great compliment to any meal, right out of the bag or steamed for a few minutes.  You can find them in your produce section of your market.  The next time you are shopping for your veggies for the week, take your time to see what is new in your local grocery store or farmer's market.  Pre-cut jicama is a great time saver.  Snap peas, already washed and ready to go.  Add color and have fun while eating clean and healthy.

I have found in my moderately short time as mom that the key to stress free travel with kids is packing well and planning for both comfort and convenience. Sacrificing one for the other usually only results in an unhappy camper and I will be damned if that unhappy camper is going to be me. I have rounded up my tried and true list of things that I don't leave home without when we hit the road. Whether you are planning on adventuring to a theme park or spending hours on end at the beach this summer, or both, this list will come in handy... Read More
