Our lives are lived at a fast pace, and destinations are dictated by time. It’s easy to fall into a pattern of buying food on the go, and it becomes “the quicker the better”. Often, these fast food choices lead to excessive weight gain, contribute to health issues, and lack the nutrition our bodies’ need.
So, how do we avoid the pit-fall of a fast food restaurant? Especially with hungry children in the car. . .
The biggest thing is to bring healthy snacks, such as organic string cheese, fruit, or vegetables. For quick and easy, I choose organic granola bars or breakfast bars. These ideas work for children or adults.
The reason I mention organic foods is simply they are not treated with toxic chemicals, retain more nutrients, and taste better. It’s also the best way to avoid GMO food products.
