Some people may consider it crazy, some people may consider it smart, I consider it a necessity. I am referring to packing healthy food to come along with my family wherever we go. It is a necessity for us because of our situation. My son has food allergies and my daughter suffers from a milder version of food allergies as well. My husband is constantly dealing with an intestinal disease and needs to be careful in the food choices that he makes, and I have taken the path of vegetarianism trying to eat mostly raw fruits and vegetables. So for our family a stop at any restaurant is usually not a fun experience. It is stressful and annoying trying to find a place that we can all eat and be happy. The alternative is to just bring along our everyday foods with us when we travel.
We are leaving for a much needed vacation courtesy of a friend and her family. We are staying in a lake front cottage for 3 days and we are all very excited to go. However, I am packing more food than clothes!!! So what does a family of four with special diets eat while on vacation??? Here is what we are bringing along:
2 watermelons 6 mangoes
1 honeydew 2 bags of organic apples
2 bunches of bananas 1 pack of romaine lettuce
4 avocados red pepper
20 grapefruit (for grapefruit juice) 2 seedless cucumbers
10 lemons (for lemonade) homemade salsa
20 oranges (for orange juice) organic tortilla chips
homemade chocolate fruit dip homemade dressing
homemade croutons coconut waters
jar of Sun butter strawberry preserves
Almond milk Rice milk
Once we are at our destination we will most likely get strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
My family will have almost everything we need to enjoy ourselves and have full, happy bellies!!! Again, I say some people may say I am crazy, some people say I am smart, I say for me and my family we have no other choice!!! LOL
