you can grab a cooler and keep healthy snacks with you instead of eating fast food the whole time. i love road trips and the lack of movement already raises my BG

I just went from Texas to Canada flying with a then 15 month old now 21 months... I wasn't pre-diabetic then or at least I didn't know it at that time.. but being solo with a baby I packed lots of ziplock bags with snacks for her you can do the same for yourself

Have done it a couple times. 1st time did have a "snack" bag in car with stuff I know I do ok on - 2nd time I forgot to do that, and wish I had. Doing fast food thing wasn't fun
