Plan Ahead for Healthy Road Trip Snacks and Meals
Taking a long car trip can wreak havoc on your diet. If you dont plan ahead, its very likely you will spend a day living on fast food, candy bars, bags of chips and soda. It would be very surprising if you consumed any fruits or vegetables, whole grains, or lowfat dairy products. Of course, maybe for one day, this really wouldnt be a big problem. But, if youd like to at least try to maintain a healthy diet while youre on the road, there are several smart choices that travel well and will keep you feeling good on your journey.
One thing to keep in mind is to keep yourself hydrated. Bottles of water are inexpensive and can be refilled easily when you stop for gas or rests. On the other side of the coin youll probably be walking a thin line between drinking enough water and the need for extra stops! Just find what works best for you.
Ill usually pack one cooler and one bag for non-refrigerated snacks. Its also a good idea to throw in some napkins, wet wipes, plastic utensils, and a couple empty plastic shopping bags to use for trash.
Here are my very favorite healthy road foods:
Cleaned and sliced
raw vegetables; grape or cherry tomatoes
