5 Things I Learned From Feeding My Family Real Food on The Road

We recently traveled and moved, and ate 18 real food meals in the car. This is what I learned. | WorthCooking.net

As many of you know, we recently moved from Missouri to Maryland. During that move, plus a road trip to Colorado in the mix of it, we were in the car or airplane for 6 days. We ate 15 meals, and multiple snacks a day, on the road… while doing GAPS and eating around allergies.

It was a bit crazy. But, at least I learned some things.

Now, you probably aren’t cooking around 25 food allergies and sensitivities as well as GAPS, but I figure what I learned about eating real food on the road can benefit anyone who wants to travel and needs/wants to avoid eating out while doing so.

So, I am going to share the biggest lessons I learned.

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe (GAPS legal)

I roasted a chicken a few Sundays back. It was amazing. Lick your fingers, devour more, and lick your fingers again. Cross your wet fingers and hope there will be enough for leftovers. Think again about trying to convince Mark to leave his awesome new engineering job and open a cafe with me. But, in…

Mango Chicken Kabobs with Avocado Dressing

I have a little foodie on my hands. All of my kids cook with me, but my (almost) six year old really gets into it. He dreams up dishes. Crazy dishes I usually can’t even comprehend doing. But, occasionally there is a dish that seems doable. I can’t even remember what uninspired thing I was…

Crock Pot Coconut Shredded Pork

Seven years of marriage, and six different kitchens. Of those kitchens most have not had counter top by the stove, a dishwasher, a garbage disposal, or floor space larger then a closet. My track record with kitches has not  been too great. Our kitchen now is like a decked out palace compared to so many…

Fruit & Gelatin Dessert

This dessert came about when one day nothing would do but making a special treat with my kids. I don’t remember why it was so important that day, but it was. So, then came the brainstorming of just how that would happen. The problem with sweet treats (that everyone can have) around here is the…

Spiced Carrot Puree (for food pouches)

“I like you, but your not a sparkling princess.” My three year old will speak the truth even when it hurts. I guess little kids aren’t really known for beating around the bush, are they? Well, I showed her… a trip to goodwill and $10 later I now have the goods needed to be a sparkly…
