Easy Snacks To Pack On A Road Trip
When you’re travelling, healthy eating can be a little difficult. There’s the temptation of pre-packaged foods and drive-through or takeaway to eat, so it’s easy to overdo it on the not-so-healthy options!
You’re going to be in the car for a few hours, so you’ll definitely get hungry. It helps to be prepared! Here’s a little list I put together of some easy healthy snacks to pack on a road trip.
Try making your own trail mix before you head off on your next road trip! I like to use a mixture of seeds, berries and nuts, but you can play around and add the types you like.
Fresh fruit or veggies
Simple, healthy delicious — fresh fruit and veggies are perfect for snacking on. Pick fruit and veggies which are easy to peel and eat, like grapes, apples, bananas, apricots, cherry tomatoes or baby carrots.
Be mindful that some states may have strict rules about travelling with fruit, so check before you leave!
Once you’re a few hours into a trip, you might want something to keep your energy up. Try making something like these healthy raw energy bars to perk you up. Pack them into a container to snack on throughout your trip.
Yes, popcorn can be a really good snack! Just look for air-popped varieties, as they tend to have less nasties like preservatives or added salt and sugar.
A road trip is all about enjoying the journey, so don’t feel like you have to deprive yourself of everything you like. The goal is simply to avoid mindless eating, or snacking on unhealthy foods purely out of boredom. Hopefully these snacks will keep you going and help your trip be even more enjoyable!
