Recipe for happy road trippers

Ours has been a summer of road trips and day trips… camping trips and family visits.

You’d think I’d have this packing thing down to a science. Checklists? Yes, in spades. Forgetting things. Also, yes!

Now that the baby is older, we’re being more spontaneous. We might decide to take off for a park picnic on a whim, or drive down to the beach for the day. But that means I don’t have lot of time to prep and pack snacks! So sometimes I forget to pack enough or the right kinds of snacks.

When SunRidge Snacks sent me a box of snacks at no charge for review last month, I hit upon a super fast and easy solution for my snack-packing woes: Mix them up! So I did!

The “recipe” for a happy (snack-ful) road trip is so simple:

I just poured Organic Banana ChipsOrganic RaisinsOrganic Whole Almonds, and Organic Sunny Bears into  a bowl! What a pretty mixture! I added Cheerios too, since the baby’s not eating any of the Sunridge Snack items yet.

Voila! A pretty (and hearty) trail mix, nearly instantly! I enjoyed being able to customize the ratios in my mix, because I like lots of nuts but not so many raisins!

I left the trail mix out in a bowl for random snacking throughout the day. But I could easily throw it in a bag for one of our quick trips!

Ooh,… I was thinking some big chunky unsweetened coconut flakes might taste awesome in the mix too!

I also tried the Organic Mango Slices from Sunridge Farms. I love the ingredients list: Organic Mangoes. That’s all it should be! They are soft-ish, chewy, naturally sweet, and delicious. I love me some mango! (and hubby doesn’t so they are ALLLLLL mine!).

We work hard to avoid getting caught out of the house without a snack or meal (which leads to poor eating choices, usually), so I have enjoyed sampling Sunridge Farms products, and I know I’ll keep their snacks on hand for our travels.

I also love the mission of SunRidge Farms:

…committed to providing the healthiest products to our customers by producing foods without highly processed or refined ingredients. We also source Non-GMO (genetically modified) ingredients whenever possible… supports organic farming and sustainable practices.
