Prepare a big zipper bag full of colorful, crunchy veggies like carrots, broccoli, radishes, green beans and store in a portable cooler. Add a few small hummus containers and Spring Water. Bring a brochure that lists all the benefits of eating veggies and as you read, you will feel healthier and happy that you are actively doing something good for yourself.

I grocery shop every week and I almost always visit two different grocery stores to get the best sales at each one. During the hot summer months, I keep a fairly good size cooler in my car for the perishables, such as frozen veggies, coffee creamer, etc. that I buy at the first store It does a good job keeping everything cold and fresh while I am shopping at the second store.
No Time for Breakfast? Here is a quick, portable & delicious idea!
