Finding snacks on the go that are actually good for road trips is a bit frustrating for some people because not many snacks actually travel well. Either they go bad easily or they require preparation as you ride down the road. Both of these things are not a good mix with a road trip where you want to simply have fun. When you then try to think up a snack that is healthy as well, you find yourself really pulling your hair out. Here are several road trip snacks that are healthy, convenient on the road and tasty for anyone:
Grape Tomatoes – If you take the time to find some little tomatoes that are in season, then you will have the ultimate road trip snack. Clean them before you go and throw them in a plastic bag and snack to your heart’s delight.
Peanut Butter Crackers – Consider using wheat crackers if you want to make them even more healthy, but homemade peanut butter crackers are still fantastic snacks on the go.
Dried Fruit and Veggies – These are fantastic for the road trip if only because they still give you all the vitamins that you need. They taste fantastic and will keep you reaching in the bag for more the whole trip through.
Popcorn – The old snack is still just as popular as it ever was and it is no mess as well. If you want the simplest snack on the go, then pop up some popcorn and bag it for your trip. Rocky Mountain Popcorn has plenty of gourmet flavors available if your looking to mix it up.
Apples – The classic apple is no joke and it is super easy to eat going down the road. Also, the core that is left behind is organic and can be tossed to the side of the road for the birds.
These are only a few of the great snacks on the go that you can bring along on a road trip. Each of them are healthy and will provide you with some type of benefit. That said, do your best to think up some of your own healthy ideas. Your road trip need not be boring snack wise either….grab something that you can enjoy.
