We are officially living in UTAH! We survived the 20 hour drive from Missouri to Utah and we are so happy to be in the Beehive State! When I was little and I traveled I would eat so much junk food I would always get so sick. Since marrying my husband, we try to eat a little bit healthier for our long car rides so we don’t feel sick. My only problem is getting my kids to eat healthier while we drive, so I have been on the look out for something they would like. I found this recipe and knew it was worth a try. I placed the trail mix in two “special containers” for our trip and my girls LOVED it!
