We are preparing for a big trip to Disneyland soon so I’ve been busy in the kitchen preparing lots of healthy snacks to take with us.  I figure it’s my job to try to balance all the crap we are sure to eat at the park with some healthy snack options.  I haven’t been to Disneyland since I was about 12 years old so I can’t remember anything about the food served there. However, rumor has it the corn dog is hard to compete with, so all my cooking in the kitchen might be for nothing.
