What to do for food when you're on the road with kiddos?
It doesn't have to be unhealthy - or expensive - it can be tasty
It can even be an adventure!
You know the saying: "When in Rome. . . " well "When in Georgia - get ya' some uh them thar peanuts"
It even qualifies as a homeschool lesson :)
Eating local food when traveling is a great way to soak up the "culture" or even just widen
your horizons - people often think to order seafood when on the coast - be sure to find out
what the area you're visiting is known for when it comes to good vittles!
Packing plenty of veggies and fruits is important - we eat lots of raw baby carrots with
a bit of ranch dressing - bags of lettuce will travel pretty well too - and pop a potato in the
hotel microwave for a quick, hot and healthy meal on the go.
We also bring along a can of beans - a whole baked chicken - salsa and cheese to
roll up in tortillas for a yummy meal that most everyone will like!
I heated the beans in the microwave a bit - spread some on a tortilla
I pulled chicken off the bone ahead of time and stored it in a big baggie so it was
ready to go - I got tired of pulling it bit by bit off the bone - this solved my problem
Add chicken, cheese, salsa and lettuce if you have it
The kids ate them up!
Be sure to plan for an extra treat along the way. We enjoyed ice cream at
Indian Springs State Park in Georgia - it is a place I hope to return to!
There is a rich history and shady trees to sit under while you read about it
The springs are known for their healing properties since the days of the Creek Indians
who lived here before - I'll be writing about my wonderful experience there soon!
