Healthy Road Trip Snack Secrets for the Holidays with The Pampered Chef
The holiday season will find many travelers on the road, driving to visit relatives for that annual visit. Some travelers may opt to stay with their relatives while many others choose to stay in a hotel or vacation rental near the family gathering place. I know when my family travels, we not only try to pack healthy road trip snacks, but also to save money by not stopping at a drive through for every meal.
My friends from The Pampered Chef sent me a holiday gift of new and classic items for making meal time easier for me and the family during this crazy holiday time. I’ve been using The Pampered Chef products and recipes for over a decade, as have many of my friends. A few of them even sell TPC products and the home parties are a fun way for friends to gather together, enjoy some new dishes, and learn about ways to make dinner prep time easy and fun.
Here are some tips and The Pampered Chef items I personally use when taking a road trip.
Twixit! Combo Pack – These little clips are compact and handy for keeping snack bags and chip bags closed when on the road or at home. If you have a number of kids in your family, a fun way to personalize snacks is to use a paint pen to personalize a Twixit! for each family member. This not only makes them personally responsible for keeping their snacks from spilling all over the car, but will help identify snack bag owners so there aren’t as many disagreements. Twixit Combo Pack $5.50
Scoop Clip – Everyone already knows I like to travel with my own coffee. The Scoop Clip not only keeps my coffee fresh and sealed, but it also is handy for measuring the amount of coffee needed for making a fresh pot. This is an ideal product not just for travel, but also at the office. Scoop Clip $5.50
Cut-N-Seal – When my kids were just a little bit younger, they insisted on the crust being cut off their sandwiches. The Cut-N-Seal makes sandwich construction easy and fun. I love how it seals the bread around the edges. For the road trip home, make some chicken salad sandwiches, but substitute the chicken with leftover turkey. Cut-N-Seal $9.50
To celebrate the holidays, we’re giving away the three items listed in the above tips. One randomly chosen winner will win all three items. Just leave a comment with your tips or ideas for holiday road trip snacks or a way you use leftover turkey after the holiday meal. If you need a little inspiration on leftover ideas, be sure to watch the live cooking demonstation on The Pampered Chef Facebook Page on November 11, 2010 at 10:30AM CST or check out all the recipes and products available at The Pampered Chef official website.
Contest ends November 15, 2010 at 11:59PM CST. US residents ages 21 and older. Current and former contributors of TravelingMamas.com not eligible to enter. Prize provided by The Pampered Chef.
Disclosure: TPC provided a promotional gift package of new products. This in no way influenced my opinion as I have been a customer of TPC for many years.

My favorite use for leftovers from Thanksgiving is Turkey Noodle soup. The carcass makes a big pot of soup which gives you a few more days of leftovers LOL

I also make Turkey Noodle Soup. It’s a funny story. A couple of years ago my mother-in-law made the Thanksgiving dinner and afterward I saw her going to throw the carcass out! Sacrilege! She had never heard of saving it and using it and I had never considered throwing it out! Now she likes my carcass soup!
Richard T. said on November 15th, 2010 at 8:31 pm
I use up my turkey leftovers making a turkey vegetable soup. Everybody loves it.
LeAnn V said on November 15th, 2010 at 8:59 pm
The day after Thanksgiving I always make soup out of the turkey carcass. It’s so delicious. With the left over turkey, I have a recipe for “turkey enchilada casserole” my mother gave me, that we love.
