healthy road trip snacks

I absolutely love road trips! I love to just drive & explore new places along the way. My one problem with road trips? It’s so hard to eat healthy while in the car! Sure we stop at Chipotle & Subway and those are some healthy food options but they can get old really fast. Today, I am showing you some of my favorite road trip snacks! I also like to snack on some veggies & green juice but I didn’t have a cooler this trip so I had to live with snacks that didn’t need to be refrigerated 🙂 What are your favorite healthy road trip snacks?? Let me know! I’m always looking for new ideas!
1.) Fruit: I know that too much fruit isn’t good for you but I would much prefer to have the natural sugars instead of the processed junk.
2.) Kind Bars & Kashi Bars: These are my absolute favorite bars! I used to avoid bars because most of them are high in sugar & have a lot of unnecessary ingredients. These ones have a shorter list of ingredients then most. If you want even more natural ingredients, try LaraBars, they only have 3-4 ingredients in each bar! They are a little bit higher in fat though due to the nuts.
3.) Nuts: Whenever I’m looking for a snack, I eat a handful of nuts (6-10) & then drink a glass of water. Nuts are high in protein (obviously! :)) so they keep you full longer. Don’t eat too many though because even though they are good fats, they are still full of fat & you don’t want too much of that!
4.) Popcorn Chips: I know that these technically aren’t ‘healthy’ but they are much healthier than regular chips & sometimes you just need a little crunchy snack to get you through the trip! I also love the little rice cakes. Go for the flavored ones, the plain are nasty!
5.) Dried Edamame: These are another great crunchy snack! They are a good source of protein as well so they will keep you full.
 
FYI Make sure you look at the labels so you can do portion control!!!
Look at the serving size & how many calories so you don’t eat more than you think you are 🙂
