Favorite Healthy Road Trip Snacks

Road Trip Packing. Always fun.

I am from the great state of Texas – so every so often, I have to road trip it to visit for the holidays.

Alas, have to fit all the presents. Not to mention, saves me money on boarding my puppy, Dallas.

One of the major issues in taking a long road trip is the unhealthy snack choices along the way. That McDonald’s looks amazing when you have been driving for 10 hours – and you just need that large French fry to get you through the pain staking trip.

Don’t indulge in these pesky, heart clogging snacks.

I know, easier said than done. But, if you pack your snacks wisely, you won’t have to stop for the greasy foods.

Here are my top 5 favorite road trip snacks:

Homemade Gluten Free Sandwiches

Have some sandwiches packed and ready to go.  You don’t have to spend money on the road this way. Just wrap each one in foil or plastic wrap. Indulge in that creamy taste of light mayo, lettuce and chicken. This is way healthier and won’t sit heavy in your tummy.

Trail Mix

Walmart has huge bags of trail mix that you can buy and just stick in the car. Stray away from the ones that have chocolate in them. Opt for ones that have dried fruits and nuts. These will give you energy to power through the long drive.

Healthy Muffins

You can get some good recipes {that I have posted on my blog here}. Simply load up a gallon Ziploc with these yummy, fiber packed muffins.

Low-Fat String Cheese

Need a little protein energy burst? String cheese is a filling snack that will give you that little protein punch. It also has a load of calcium and is low-fat.

Unsweetened Iced Tea

This you can buy on the road. Do not pump sugar into your body by purchasing soft drinks. You can buy a $1 large unsweetened tea at McDonald’s. This drink always gets me through road trips with the occasional bathroom break.
