Prep + Pack + Track = Non-Negotiable for ME on a sports-filled day on the go….and pretty much every day that ends in “Y,” if I’m being honest!

Saturday in this house is sports day, ALL DAY which of course, means I turn into the food bag lady! I will not leave the house without food, snacks, water, and a few extra snacks for everyone else (yes, they know I don’t let anyone go hungry). 

Why? Because I never want to run into that situation where I’m ravenous. You know what I’m talking about mamas, that hangry, sassy, I will eat anything and everything I can get my hands on feeling.

Not only do you get a ton of comfort knowing you have a cooler full of food in the car, but it also allows you to stay full and avoid the dreaded ravenous hangry situation.

Now, if you’re sitting there thinking, “gosh, I don’t have time for this,” then I’m going to challenge you with these questions:

+ How much time are you scrolling on social media? Could you cut it down by 10 minutes?

+ What about waking up just 10 minutes earlier to pack your food?

Being prepared takes under 10 minutes! You can easily start with a few snacks and pack the foods you love. You don’t have to get fancy with it. Trust me, keeping it simple is key! Start making a list of what foods or meals you like. Keep it simple and tasty, and start thinking differently when you leave the house…. Make it a point not to leave empty-handed.

Here are my 3 quickie go-to meal prep tips for busy mamas during sports season!

  1. I try to stick to one protein bar or shake a day and eat real foods, but when you’re away all day from your kitchen, you do what’s good for the body, budget and taste buds. I pack:
  • 2 Turkey Sandwiches
  • 2 x 1/2 serving of chips
  • 2 x One Bars @one1brands


  1. Pack snacks, food, and water like you’re a toddler. You would never leave home without a bottle for your baby or snacks for your little ones. Consider yourself an adult toddler. Here’s a video of my packing process!
  2. Make sure every meal is packed with some sort of protein. This could be tuna, greek yogurt, deli turkey, protein powder, or lentils. 

FML Tip: If you’re short on time and ideas for what to make, double up your favorites and make your life easier. Again, keep it simple!

Please make yourself a priority and never leave the house without a snack, food, and water. Yep, I’m looking out for you. You’re worth it!
