Healthy Road Trip Snack Ideas

Vacation doesn't have to derail your health goals. Get ideas to help you pack healthy road trip snacks when you visit the blog. * #ad #MomBlogTourFF

I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers.

Rosemary Asiago Popcorn

I forget what started me making homemade popcorn… it was either that I wanted to avoid all the icky things in the microwave popcorn bags or that I realized it was much less expensive and that was good for my college budget and Law and Order: SVU – watching.
