I have to admit that one of my pet peeves is when my car transforms into a garbage can. It's tough, though, when you're on the go and want your little one to have a snack for the wrappers, napkins and crumbs not easily find their way onto the seats and floor.
I've always been a fan of rice cakes because they're healthy, crispy and delicious. They're great to top with all kinds of jam, almond butter or just some avocado slices, but even plain they're yummy too. Kenya and I were rolling through the aisles of Whole Foods the other day and came across Kamut Cakes, a divine twist on these favorite of my snacks. "Put the brakes on, Kenya! Oh my goodness, wow!" These Kamut cakes are slimmer then your typical puffy rice cake and have an intense nutty aroma. They contain no sodium or preservatives and are higher in vitamins, minerals and amino acids than commercial wheat. The first week I bought them I was making all of our friends and their kids try them! (When I get passionate about a product, watch out!)
So now I buy bags of these by the truck load and always keep one pack in the car for a "no mess snack" for Kenya....and me!
