I’m such a sucker for a good road trip, which surprises me. Because I’m such a glam gal in most facets of life. But give me a good road trip of “roughing it” in the car for a couple of days, and I love it. We take at least a few road trips every year, but our longest one is our annual family vacay that we take every summer. It’s sadly come and gone this year, but I still feel proud of my fresh-food packing skills. It’s even more important to me now that I have little C. There’s no way I’m cramming fast-food down his little body. So…
This trip I packed a cooler full of the freshest ingredients I could find to make sandwiches: organic turkey; organic cheese; gluten-free fresh bread; mustard. I also threw in a jar of fresh organic salsa for kicks to go with gluten-free chips, a quick and easy snack throughout the trip. And it’s not that I wasn’t brave enough to pack in the tomatoes and lettuce, it’s that I really didn’t want to mess with those extras.
On GE’s Freshpedition Justin and Ben pack all kinds of things in their fridge, it almost makes me wish I would strap on a mini fridge for the next road trip. (ha, and D. is grimacing right about now) I mean, how completely cool is it that they’re bringing along a fridge to preserve their farm fresh food? I’m a believer in fresh food, and rather enjoyed watching their journey through several different farms in the south (my stomping grounds!). Watch it and see what you think…and tell me what your fav fresh food is to eat – I wanna know!
Just look at this BLT Wedge Salad I ate (devoured) Monday, made with the freshest organic ingredients from my fav local restaurant, Big Orange.
