So you might say we travel a lot, right? I’d agree. I love it. I love being a nomad, for now at least.
But one of the hardest things about traveling is food. I try to pack as many fresh foods as possible. Luckily now a days, there are “fresh” options everywhere, even at new stands and gas stations!
Let’s see. What did I pack/eat/buy while road trippin’ this past weekend? Here’s a list.
- fruit cup
- salad in a cup
- trail mix
- turkey jerky
- protein powder mix
- plantain chips
- lara bars and uber bars
Not too shabby for travel food eh?
But what if we had the tools/appliances to keep things fresh ALL the time? It would make things so much easier in terms of eating healthy, right?
Check out the FRESHPEDITION.
These guys are on a mission to Keep Farm Food Fresh. Now that is something I can support!
A Chef and GE engineer stocked up a GE refrigerator with fresh foods, hooked it up to a generator, stuck it on the back of a truck, and drove 2,000 miles on the road just to make a point. Farm Fresh Food COULD an SHOULD last!
GE is continuing this same passion for fresh food with the Freshpedition Sweepstakes. This sweepstakes uses Pinterest, which means you can actually pin for a chance to win all new GE kitchen appliances.
You can also enter each day of the sweepstakes for a chance to win a $100 VISA® Prepaid Card. Entering for this prize is fun as you’re asked to pin your favorite fresh foods or your own recipes. Also, these pins when hashtagged with your state (e.g. #GEfreshTX) become part of a “Best of Fresh” map featuring freshness from around the country. Explore the map here: http://www.freshpedition.com/sweepstakes/fresh-map.htm

I just adore this campaign! I am pretty sure most everyone will too! Watch the video, laugh at all they encounter, and check out the fantastic sweepstakes where you can win a GE kitchen appliance. I’ll post more later as details unfold, but just know, it’s totally worth it!

What’s the longest your food has stayed fresh while traveling?
I think I might take their idea and travel across the nation with Healthy Bites. Sound good?
Where to first?
