If you’ve ever driven the long, 6 hour commute along I5 from Los Angeles to San Francisco, then you’ll understand when I say that the lack of healthy snacks (and good scenery) is an understatement. Every rest stop is a random smattering of gas stations, Taco Bells and maybe a Starbucks (if you’re lucky).
Unlike my husband who needs a pee stop every 45 minutes because he drinks buckets of fizzy beverages the whole way up, I prefer to challenge myself by stopping as few times as possible and packing a little healthy meal for the trip so that I don’t have to resort to fast food (I’d rather starve to be honest).
So the morning of my trip, I pull the following out and this time, I actually remembered to take a picture so I could share!
Note – the wine and ProCakes are intended for the destination….unless the traffic is REALLY bad…. just kidding
Other random great things that make road trips more fun include:
- A good audiobook – this time I’m hearing In Her Shoes
- Comfy clothes – Lulu crops and a tank (obvi)
- Boat loads of gum – I have a slight addiction I think
- Cell phone charger – because my battery has a 3 minute lifespan these days. Who’s getting the iPhone 6???
Now there’s a reason that I”m heading north this weekend and it’s not for Napa with the girls this time. I can’t wait to share all the cool things that are on the horizon, but I’ll wait till all my proverbial “i”s are dotted
Meanwhile, have a fantastic weekend!!!
