Healthy Snacking When Traveling With Lorissa’s Kitchen

As a mom of 2 toddlers, I’m always on the go – be it taking the kids to a farm or a park, play dates, or going out of town; our weekends are mostly spent outside. Kids are kids; they love to explore, climb on top of things, get dirty, and so much more. To make up for the fact that my husband and I work full-time 5 days a week, we take them somewhere fun every weekend to let them do all these things that they love. Being out and about means that I have to make sure our diaper bags are filled with snacks, tons and tons of it. And it’s not just any snacks, I have to make sure the kids’ snacks are always healthy.

The problem with me being a mom is, I tend to not pack snack for myself because what I usually have for snack is not healthy for my kids. And you probably know how kids are – they always eat what Mommy is eating. So I would always end up just eating what’s left from my kids’ snacks. I’d be lucky if I can find a place to buy food for myself (that’s healthy) while we’re out; but sometimes I’d just have to wait until we get home so I can eat (while hiding). Good thing, I found out about Lorissa’s Kitchen meat snacks.

Lorissa’s Kitchen meat snacks are perfect for our on-the-go lifestyle. They are shelf-stable which means they don’t spoil. And in my world, that means I don’t have to stress myself out sniffing their snack and figuring out if they could still be eaten; or worrying the entire trip if the fruits are going to make it. They are filled with protein to keep us going – running after and with our kids, exploring, or running errands.

They have 11 grams of protein per serving, no nitrites, no added MSG, no preservatives, and gluten free. Now I don’t have to feel bad and hide from my kids whenever I’m snacking! Thanks to Lorissa’s Kitchen, I can now share my snacks with my kids and enjoy them as a family. You can read more about their meat snacks here.

We recently went on a family trip to Washington, D.C. One morning, we decided to just relax and hang around the Washington Monument. The kids spent the morning running around, exploring, chasing birds and squirrels. And when they got hungry, we all shared the snacks I brought with us – along with fruits, crackers, and cookies, we enjoyed our Lorissa’s Kitchen meat snacks.

These amazing meat snacks are absolutely going to be a snack staple at our house and whenever we’re traveling!

    I feel you on getting the left overs of our kids! Sooo me! You’re lucky you have that kind of healthy snacks in your area. Nice post!

  • Trisha White

    I bet these are so good! And the best part that I like is that they dont spoil! That’s a win right there! 🙂

  • Those look yummy. The mom snack is a real problem sometimes lol

  • I’m guilty of either enjoying my vacation too much and eating waaaayyy too much, waayyyy too recklessly, or I focus too much on what I’m eating and don’t enjoy my time as much as I should. It’s all about balance and I need to learn to find a medium. These snacks would be absolutely perfect next time! 🙂

    Yummy!! Healthy snacks are sometimes hard for me to find because I’m so picky but this looks great !
