Sorry, cheezy rhyme, but I couldn’t resist. I’m a Mom of four with two preschoolers 😉
Anyways, we headed out for the day and started it off like we have everyday: packing the cooler. Yes, this may seem like a pain, bringing a cooler, but #1 it saves us a lot of money bringing our own food and #2 it’s healthier. The cooler sits in the car all day (with a several cold packs…) and whenever we’re hungry, we just pop open the back of the car and chow down.
Here’s some of our snacks we packed for the day:
(Sorry for the picture quality…)
- dried fruit and nuts
- baby carrots
- LOTS of fruit! 🙂
- My trusty vegan protein powder
- fruit strips
- gluten-free bread
We try to eat as much from our cooler but do go out for one meal. When we started planning our trip to Colorado, Shawn, who is from here, said we had to go to the famous BeauJo’s Pizza. It would be our “cheat” meal for the week. So we decided to go for lunch. Well, as luck would have it, they had an ENTIRE gluten-free menu!
Honestly, I am very surprised how accommodating Colorado has been to alternative eating. TONS of fresh options, and lots of gluten-free options at restaurants and grocery stores.
Train time up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains!
