Road Trip Snacks!



As Winter winds down (fingers-crossed) most of us are looking ahead to spring and summer and beginning to plan trips. Taking a road trip seems to be on everyone's list this year. Gasoline prices are lower, making it possible for even more people to take a road trip. Finding healthy food on the road has become easier in recent years yet it's still a challenge. A rest stop in the middle of a highway probably doesn't have a whole lot of healthy options. I have rounded up a list of my favorite recipes that are perfect to make and pack for a road trip. Whether you're driving to a family wedding in Nebraska or to the coast to visit the beach, having a ton of healthy snacks will help bring you a little sanity back (that is until your 5 year olds starts asking if you're there yet for the 568th time).

Hydrate in Style


If you have been a Yummy Sprout reader for awhile or follow me on Instagram or Facebook you know I love the Planetbox (Rover) lunchbox. The stainless steel lunchbox is easy to pack, clean and very durable...perfect for my not-so-gentle-with-her-things daughter. We have had ours for almost 2 and half years and it's still in perfect condition. I get asked almost weekly which lunchbox we use. *For healthy lunchbox ideas check out HERE or follow Yummy Sprout on Instagram.

Recently I was given the opportunity to review the BottleRocket™ Water Bottle. It did not disappoint! Here are some of the things I love about it:

HeartBEET Cupcakes


This recipe is from my personal archives. It's one of those recipes I have made countless times and alway pass along to friends when they ask for a healthy cupcake recipe for their little one's birthday or party yet somehow it never made it to Yummy Sprout.  Well today I remedy that! This recipe is fun (bright pink), healthy and low in sugar (sweetened with honey). Plus, I love looking at the pictures of my now six year old enjoying these cupcakes as a toddler!

Leprechaun Dip


Here is a fun and yummy dip perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Ditch the green food coloring and use something naturally green to make your day fun - not to mention the bonus of extra veggies. We love this dip in our house, even my youngest daughter, who is not a big fan of peas, gobbled it up.  Win win!
