It’s no secret that we’re a mobile society. While we all appreciate and strive for the sit-down family supper, sometimes fast food is just necessary. But not only is fast food an unhealthy and rather costly option; where we live, it isn’t exactly convenient. Keeping the freezer and pantry stocked with grab-n-go staples stretches our food budget and eases the stress when we need to go.
Here are some foods we can easily take out the door.
- pigs in a blanket
- pizza pockets
- brown bag burritos
- breakfast burritos
- muffins (some favorites here)
- granola bars
- breakfast cookies
- hot pockets
- carrot sticks
- trail mix
- fresh fruit
- dried fruit (raisins, apricots)
With a little planning, plain ol’ fast food takes a backseat to good food fast.
