EatBetterAmerica is hitting the road all this week to prove that a healthy road trip diet is totally possible!
It's easy to convince yourself that you can't eat well while traveling - but even when you're on the road, you can eat healthy. That's the message of the EatBetterAmerica Roadtrip, which is going on all this week!
Follow our friends over at EatBetterAmerica.com, Alli and Andy, as they travel through Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. Along the way, they'll be visiting top-notch restaurants, discussing fresh ingredients, posting tips on eating right while on the road, and handing out reusable EatBetterAmerica grocery bags loaded with recipes, coupons and other fun stuff.
They've already made stops in Minneapolis's Mill Valley Kitchen and the Common Roots Cafe
, as well as the Windy City's vegan hotspot, Karen's On Green
