Healthy Summer Road Trip Snacks To Pack
Healthy Summer Road Trip Snacks to Pack
You got to admit — summer isn’t complete without an exciting road trip. It’s pretty much the perfect season to explore places you’ve never seen before, head to a faraway beach, or visit your relatives who live in another town. Whether you’re traveling alone or with your loved ones, it’s always such a thrill to embark on a road adventure.
However, there will be some challenges along the way — bad weather, heavy traffic, and difficulty in finding healthy snacks in pit stops and convenience stores. Sad to say, most of these places don’t sell nutritious portable snacks. That’s why you should prepare and buy your snacks ahead of time.
Before you hop on your car and hit the road, you better pack these healthy goodies:
- Dark chocolates
Dark chocolates are proof that chocolates are truly good for the health. They’re packed with antioxidants and caffeine to keep you energized. They also leave you feeling full quickly.
- Trail mix
A bag of trail mix nuts is always a good idea when you’re on the go. Not only do nuts provide an ample amount of healthy fats, fiber, and protein, but they’re also super easy to eat on bumpy roads. If you’re looking for tips to create your mix, get your inspiration from this list of delicious trail mix recipes.
- Fruit chips
What’s a healthier alternative to potato chips? Definitely homemade fruit chips! Banana chips, apple chips, pineapple chips — you name it! With these chips, you won’t feel an ounce of guilt about ruining your diet!
- Sliced apples
Chew on a couple of sweet apple slices while you’re steering the wheel or enjoying the view from the passenger’s seat. Either way, you’ll find your stomach satiated in no time.
- Veggie bites
Don’t forget to pack your carrot sticks, celery, or avocado fries along with your other road trip essentials. You’ll thank yourself for it! Here are other veggie treats to snack on, just in case you’re running out of ideas.
- Protein bars
Protein bars aren’t just about protein. They’re also rich in carbs, minerals, and vitamins, making them essential road trip snacks. However, since many protein bars contain sugar and other additives, it’s important to buy bars that are only made from whole nutritious ingredients.
- Peanut butter
Seriously, who doesn’t love peanut butter? You can’t go wrong with a jar of this nutritious and high-protein snack. Whether you prefer to use it as a dip for your sliced apples or you’ve always been eating it straight from the container, peanut butter will never let you down while you’re on a road trip.
You’ll need to store good fats into your body, and avocado is an ideal choice for this. This fruit is also a good source of nutrients such as folate and potassium, as well as vitamins C and E. Slice your avocado in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, or better yet, bring a mix of ripe and unripe avocados.
You can’t just drive around without staying hydrated, especially on a scorching hot summer day. Bring a big jug of cool water. Be sure that you keep it chilled by adding some ice before leaving for your destination.
- Vegetable juice
If water won’t be enough to quench your thirst, veggie juice can be a great addition. While fresh is always best, bottled juice works, too.
