I’ve been a little all over the place lately.
Last week, I was in Phoenix, Arizona at a high school friends’ wedding.
And now? Back in Boise.
I do pretty well on car rides for the most part. I don’t (usually) get overly grumpy or irritated, and try not to ask “Are we there yet?!” too many times. I try to be prepared with new music and an audio book, this time Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (the author of Gone Girl), and it was a great distraction for the last two days of the drive.
But I do always, always want snacks. And trust me, I need my snacks. You do NOT want to see me hangry.
I threw together this trail mix for us to eat during our cross country adventure, and we ate almost the entire thing in the 3 days! I poured the mix into one of those plastic cereal containers and it made it super convenient and mess free during the ride.
You start to feel gross enough after eating fast food 3 meals a day…it’s nice when you can have a snack that is at least a little healthy. Consisting of mostly nuts and dried fruits, this trail mix is a much better snack option than gas station candy bars or one more side order of fries.
What do you guys eat in the car? My mom and I will be making the trek to Louisiana again in a few weeks to move my stuff down…I’d love any snack, music, book suggestions!
