While the Glacier Ice House lifestyle can be slow and leisurely some days, most of the time you're busy doing fun stuff. If you’ve got your days planned with activities, events, and destinations, sometimes getting meals taken care of without resorting to fast food feels next to impossible.

There are, however, ways to take your meals on the go so that you can avoid fast food even on the most hectic of days. Save money, eat healthier, and streamline your adventures by trying to follow these tips.

Custom Rollups

This is a perfect solution for a day of adventure. Simply take some lunch meat and roll it around some cheese. You can add a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and even a little bit of mayo if you want. Tortillas also work great in this manner since they’re much more flexible than a slice of bread but essentially serve the same purpose. There are plenty of ways to get creative with these, so there’s no excuse to make them bland. With just enough protein included, they’re filling, convenient, and highly portable.

Make More Than You Can Eat

No, really. When you make dinner in your Glacier Ice House, make more than your family can eat. Portion out what you’re going to eat for dinner and then save the rest for lunch tomorrow. Leftovers are a great way to stretch home-cooked dishes over multiple meals and avoid eating out. While you may have to stave off any infamous second- and third-helping people in your party, the convenience of having a ready meal the next day are worth it.

Create Custom Grazing Boxes

Grazing boxes are a smart solution to gap breakfast and dinner. They’re an alternative to a formal sit-down lunch that allows you and your party to stay on the move, whether you’re spending your day on the road or having fun. If you’re not familiar with the concept, a grazing box is sort of like a trail mix, except instead of using things like nuts and candies, you use all sorts of bite-sized foods, such as cubed ham, boiled eggs, cubed cheese, and fresh fruits. You can make a custom box for every member of your party so that each one is tailored for taste. You can place these mixes into tin containers to help seal in freshness, or use bento boxes, lunch boxes, or even ziplock baggies. The idea is that each person has their grazing box and can eat from them throughout the day as hunger strikes.

Travel in a Glacier Ice House

Another great way to simplify travel and streamline your adventures? Travel in the comfort and convenience of a Glacier Ice House. Owning your own ice fishing trailer means that you can ice fish in the winter, then turn around and use it as a travel trailer the rest of the year.
