Once, long ago, when we packed up for travel, we might have packed crackers and chips, and anything that we had in the pantry just so nothing went to waste. The “old waste not want not” proverb comes to mind but things are changing in our world from what to snack on to why to snack on it.
Travel is about letting go and having fun, but if you have too much fun with all the wrong snack foods you may gain excess weight you did not want. We love to get outdoors and picnic, bike, and hike. We must pack the best food options to fuel up, but we choose snack options that are low in fat and high in protein, letting us snack more healthy.
Today I will share with you some Made in America snacks that will give you a new way to snack without worry. Lavishly live life out loud and learn how to elevate your snacking experience as you learn what you should pack to munch on.
How To Elevate Your Snacking Experience
Travel is a time when we get our family out of the house, and head outdoors. My teens are all about adventure and we are often out zip lining, hiking, playing paintballs, riding quads (or something of the like) and biking. We love when the seasons change because each season brings on new adventures.
With adventures and activity comes hunger so snacking is a must. Growing teens and fun outings always have me in search of tips and tricks to conquer our travels while I also seek different foods to elevate our snacking experience which are healthier alternatives to the typical ‘junk food options’.
Staying hydrated is super important when you travel as it keeps your digestive system moving, and your skin nice and healthy. If you don’t drink enough you won’t feel well or you might even get a headache. When traveling, it is so important to stay hydrated so make sure to pack a refillable water bottle so you can drink and stay hydrated no matter where you go. Water is just one way to elevate your snack experience but you will want water to accompany my latest find!
Made In America
I live in America, and I am darn proud of it, and I choose products that support America. Coleman® Steak Snacks are key to our snacking repertoire in our home. These are made without artificial ingredients, and they contain no MSG! What’s more the Coleman® Steak Snacks contain no high fructose corn syrup!
As an active mom with 3 teens that keep me on the go, it is important to provide them with healthy options, that are as pure and simple as possible and contain nothing artificial. That being the case, these steak snacks are on point.
My daughter is all about watching what she eats, and she does not do the ‘carb thing’, whereas my one son is all about snacking on protein in it’s most natural form. The premium beef steak snacks are perfect because they are tender and tasty and made with 100% beef, nothing junky in the mix! Coleman® Steak Snacks are low in fat and high in protein making them the perfect snacking option for everywhere we travel from poolside to the mountainside.
3 Snacking Flavors
You might think that because these are tender and tasty, and easy to pack that there might be a lack of choice in flavor, wrong! Coleman® Steak Snacks come in 3 delicious and hearty flavors, nothing overpowering, all well-blended and definitely spot on with flavors you will want to enjoy while out and about.
Open & ReSeal
One of the largest obstacles as a mom toting food is the fact that most foods don’t come in resealable bags. The resulting factor of snacks not carried in resealable pouches equals waste. I do not like buying snacks to end up tossing out whatever was left because a bag did not reseal and keep food fresh.
The solution to our snacking episodes again is Coleman® Steak Snacks. The handy resealable 2.85 oz ZIP PAK bag lets the kids get into them when they are hungry and easily reseal when they have had enough. When they are again ready to dig into snacks, I offer up the bag they started with rather than opening a new bag, therefore less waste and the meat tastes as good as it did when we originally opened it.
It’s time to lavishly live travel out loud, pack low carb, high protein snacks and have a blast. XO ~
