Road Trip Essentials! (& VLOG VIDEO)


I recently went on a cross-country road trip and thought I would give you guys some of my road trip essentials! 

First and foremost – gotta have my hydration! I love my purple BPA-Free Lifefactory Glass Bottle! I prefer to drink out of glass bottles as opposed to plastic which can contain DEHA (a ubstance linked to cancer). These bottles are amazing – I carry mine with me wherever I go! 


Some good snackage is definitely necessary on a road trip – no matter how long you’re in the car! That’s it. Fruit Bars were a must! These bars are the perfect snack because they’re vegan, gluten-free, paleo, and made with only two ingredients – Fruit + Fruit! It’s like taking fruit on the run without the mess. My favorite flavor is Apple+Pear. I stored a few in my console to have as my perfect, daily sweet fix! 




To satisfy my salty cravings, I munched on Kale Krunch. These are absolutely my favorite kale chips! I love the Tarragon Dijon flavor. They are healthy and delicious – a perfect snack when you’re on the run.


When I felt like I needed some real fuel, I sipped on Orgain. These are my favorite protein shakes because they’re filled with nourishing ingredients and even fruits and veggies. Plus, they just came out with two vegan flavors! When I saw the new vegan flavors on the shelves of Whole Foods, my life was made. Both of the vegan shakes make you feel wonderful and taste great, but my favorite was the Sweet Vanilla Bean flavor – Yum! 



Last but not least, my EOS lip balm was essential on this trip! Five days on the road = unhappy, chapped lips for me! I picked one up as we were passing through South Dakota. Surprisingly, I had never tried EOS before! I really didn’t know what I was missing out on – with my EOS lip balm, my lips felt smooth, soft, and nourished – and on a side note, they’re so cute! 



Those are my essentials for any road trip!

A Cheeky Treat


Happy Easter!

I’m in Vancouver, Canada right now. What a beautiful city! I’m having such a wonderful time with my family and loved ones.

Of course… we had to make a stop at Whole Foods… well, a stop a day 😉

I picked up one of these Cheeky little treats during today’s trip.

The zazubean chocolate selection caught my attention because their bars are certified organic, fair trade, gluten-free, and with no emulsifiers added. Now that’s my kind of chocolate! And how could I resist this impeccable flavor name – Cheeky – I feel like this little piece of heaven was made just for me! Cheeky is 70% Dark Chocolate with Salted Toffee, Banana, and Maca – see what I’m saying? Made just for this Cheeky girl! My only wish is that these would come to the states – for Cheeky yummies all the time.

Have a wonderful day!

Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free Yummies!

You’ve probably noticed by now that in the title, I vaguely named these healthy treats “yummies”. That’s because I don’t quite know what to call them. I threw these together with whatever I had in my fridge/pantry. They’re super yummy and healthy ~ I guess you could say they’re a mix between energy bars and cookies. They’re not too sweet and filled with nutritional powerhouses like goji berries, sunflower seeds, and almond meal! & they’re shaped like hearts!!! What could be better?


If you guys would like the recipe {which was basically a mix-mash of whatever I had in my kitchen}, comment below!


Stay cheeky!
