today we have teamed up with our partner, naturebox, to giveaway a 6-month snack subscriptions to two lucky readers! (details at the end of this post.)
so far on this family trip, we have clocked in something like 15+ hours of travel time in the car (not including the plane, just talking time buckled up on the good old fashioned highway…) that’s a lot of time on the road for a family that doesn’t even own a car back home in manhattan. for the most part, it’s been alright.
in my opinion, in order to have a successful road trip of any kind, you need three things. one:: good company, two:: good music, and three:: lots and lots of good snacks! while i’m usually stocking up on junk food and soda for the car, i am proud to say i’ve been working hard on ditching these kinds of food habits for better ones over the past several months. we brought along a bunch of fresh veggies and fruit and several snack bags from naturebox for the drive this trip and so far they have been a huge hit! if you aren’t already familiar with the subscription based service, naturebox provides healthy snacks delivered to your door each month which have no high fructose corn syrup or partially hydrogenated oils or artificial sweeteners. you choose which snacks you’d like from the snack page each month. when they arrive, you can stick them in the glove box of your car, your stroller pockets, diaper bag, top drawer in your office or bed stand or wherever and bam – delicious snacks any time!
a few photos from all the car time, and a giveaway at the end!
^^^the pistachio clusters are my favorite. also recommend the apple orchards granola and roasted sea salt chickpeas. the whole wheat figgy bars are the kids favorite right now. view all of the snack option here, if you’d like.^^^
^^^running free behind the gas station to give our legs a stretch!^^^
^^^we play lots of “i spy” games from the car and they are always extra fun when there are horses and cattle and sheep on the side of the road!^^^
^^^gorgeous views of the valley from the road up high in the mountains.^^^
