For the first time in forever I’m actually taking a real spring break trip!

So what’s an RD to be pack for snacks when she’s going to be on an airplane for 12+ hours and then in another country with minimal access to snack-age? (and we all know how this girl feels about going without food for more than a few hours!)

Here is what I currently have going into my suitcase:

packsnacks-some produce that holds up well to travel: cuties, apples, snap peas, and carrots (in fact I found the adorable packages of carrots that are little “single servings” 😀 )
-Luna bars
-Bag of pistachios

-Jerky! 🙂 (can’t go too long without beef!)
-Crackers and PB ~ I even found some made with whole grain crackers!
-Dried coconut
-Peanut butter packets
-Water flavor packets
-Homemade granola bars (recipe below)

These granola bars are soft and chewy, slightly sweet, and best of all don’t crumble all over the place! *win*IMG_4943

My mom always made these wholesome granola bars for my high school speech meets! Whenever I bite into these, I'm taken back to my days of duet acting and extemporaneous speaking! Make these and you will not be disappointed; I promise.



  1. Cream all ingredients - except oats and chips.
  2. Stir in oats and chips until everything is well coated.
  3. Press into a greased 9x13 pan.
  4. Bake at 350* for 12-15 minutes; edges will be slightly golden.
