I’m always looking for something new for lunch.  Driving kids around, running errands, grocery shopping, all take a toll on my tummy and I really don’t want to stop at another drive-thru to get a greasy burger.  Being a mom has taught me many things, but one of the most useful things I have learned is to always have a cooler in your car.  

You never know when you will be stuck at a sports practice, waiting in line at the bank, or in between school pick-ups.  You never know when you will need a snack, bottle of water, or need a cool place to store your groceries when you have an unplanned grocery stop.

The salad I am going to show you is perfect for packing in the car and is full of protein to keep you going through the afternoon slump.

I first found Sprouts when I was on vacation with my hubby last year.  Loved it!  I came home with about 8 pounds of chia seeds.  They are half the price I normally pay and I was eating them like they were the last food on Earth.  Needless to say, airport security thought I was nuts…

But I have fallen in love with them because they carry great meats, organic veggies, and healthy foods that are convenient for on the go people like me!
