Mom is competetive fastball player, 14 year old son is a rep hockey player, dad is a coach of a different rep hockey team and 20 month old baby Riley is in tow. We all go different directions. I am looking for quick, easy, healthly dinner ideas for the car or precooked, packaged from the night before.
Every supper is a picnic for you and that takes organization. At all times, a tote must live in your car packed with plastic utensils, paper plates and bowls, napkins, seasonings and condiments, serving spoon, kitchen knife, ladle, zip lock bags, trash bags, paper towels and moist towelettes. Your meals must be portable and so you need storage containers as well as thermos food jars and bottles. Plan your meals to be balance. You need a variety of sandwiches with meat and vegetable options, such as hummus, nut butters, cheese, and eggs along with avocado, salsa, sprouts, leafy greens, roasted red peppers, etc. Get creative. Serve cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, sugar snap peas, etc. with substantial dips like hummus and guacamole. Bring crock-pot meals, full-meal salads, quick breads. and muffins, and a melon, water and juice.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
