Boxes surround me, the pantry lies almost empty and we’re nearly ready to hit the road. It will be an exciting and exhausting few weeks. I’m doing my best to stick with unprocessed, whole foods during this major transition. I have a cooler for the car – as we drive across the country my plan is to stop at grocery or health food stores along the way for quick breakfasts, lunches to eat in the car, and snacks. My usual purchases when I’m on the road include: raw cheese, nuts, seeds, kombucha, berries, raw vegetables, organic lunch meats, yogurts, hard boiled eggs (I can usually find these in the deli section), and dried fruits. It takes a bit of planning, but it’s worth it. When the body is stressed, it’s a good idea to keep it fueled with nourishing foods.
As I was cleaning out the last foods from the pantry and refrigerator this weekend, I whipped up a batch of these no-bake cookies for the kids. They only take a few minutes to prepare and then you just pop them in the fridge until they’re chilled.
