FAMILY TRAVEL TIP!
Long trips in the car can make anyone grumpy—especially when we’re hungry! Plan a hearty breakfast before you hit the road to keep everyone satisfied for the long haul. We like adding Bob’s Red Mill protein powders to a variety of recipes for an extra boost of nutrition: Hemp powder offers plantbased protein, fiber, and iron and mixes well with shakes and smoothies; whey powder is a complete protein containing all the essential amino acids and can easily be added to pancake batter or oatmeal; and soy powder is a highly digestible and nutrient-dense product of soy beans that works well in baked goods, sauces, and smoothies.
