One thing we can all do is stop, sit down, and eat. I know that I need to do a better job of slowing down, savoring the moment, and pausing for what is really important in life.
That being said, if you have travel plans, sometimes you do have to eat on the go. The other day, we took an airplane trip with the kids and thankfully Cassie had the presence of mind to pack a healthy snack for the kids. If it weren't for those healthy snacks, we would have had a set of irritable kids and passengers glaring at us.
Although most people consider granola bars to be healthy, many store bought granola bars are laden with refined sugars and sweeteners. I have been on the lookout for a healthier homemade granola bar recipe and I recently found one. This homemade granola bar is naturally sweetened with applesauce and maple syrup. The applesauce and chia seeds also help to bind the granola into a fairly serviceable bar.
I'm glad we were able to add this healthy granola bar to our snack bag of tricks on our last trip. It really helped to keep the kids satiated and our travels peaceful.
