Eating Healthy on the Road

We’re coming up on Summer Vacation time, and with that comes lots of un-healthy eating. At least that’s what happens to us when we’re on the road! We get in a rush, or we don’t plan properly, and the next thing you know lunch is junk food from the gas station where we filled up the car!
