Even if I’m not in the car – sometimes I’m on my bike because I can ride to the library, the drug store, and a couple of other places from my house and get some exercise at the same time – so, I still might not be at home or near a kitchen. Sometimes I really need snacking on-the-go.
A couple weeks ago my friend Becca and I went on an 11 mile bike ride after we dropped the kids off at school. It has been a little cooler lately, especially in the mornings and evenings, and we knew we wanted to take advantage of some of the gorgeous fall weather – and, like I mentioned I’ve been working on, balance some healthy activity into our day.
11 miles isn’t huge in the going-for-a-bike-ride scheme of things, but it was enough that we knew we’d want to take a little break to refuel. I grabbed a couple of these ready-to-go small plates from Hillshire Snacking.
