Delicious Snack Ideas For Your Hybrid Road Trip

Road Trip

A road trip can be a time where you have an extremely unhealthy binge of junk food or a time of eating healthy snacks. So many of us don’t bring any snacks on a road trip and end up going to a gas station and get a whole bunch of junk food and probably feel pretty sick afterwards. But there is good news, with only a little planning, you can organize healthy and delicious snacks before you start your road trip.

Below we have listed some of our all-time favorite road trip snacks. Believe me, we have been on quite a few road trips and have tried the junk food and healthy snack options and we always just feel so much better and happier when we eat healthy. So here are our favorite road trip snacks.

Nuts

Nuts is a great option for a road trip and really easy to organize before your trip. All you need to do is to go to the supermarket and pick up some in the bulk food isle. We always like to use the bulk food isle whenever possible as you can actually get the exact amount you want, there is less environmental waste without all that packaging, and is usually cheaper.

Homemade Protein Bars

While homemade protein bars do require a little more preparation, they are an awesome, delicious, and healthy snack. Whereas store bought protein bars which are often unhealthy and don’t taste great, homemade protein bars are delicious and are great for road trips. Another great thing about them is that you can make them into all different sizes so you can have bit size protein bars or something a little larger for when you’re hungrier.

Healthy Drinks

When many of us road trip we want some soda to help with the drive. But soda is really bad for us, we all know it but some of us refuse to believe it. Diet soda is in the same category – very bad. Instead of drinking things like soda, try one of the following: water, sparkling water (for that carbonated craving), tea, natural fruit juice, or coffee.

Fruit

Fruit including dried fruit are great road trip snacks. Make sure you prepare all your fruit before you leave as you will need to wash and depending on the fruit, cut into appropriate sizes. This is another great option for road trips.
