A few weeks ago, me and my friends decided to go for a long road trip. In order to eat healthy, we packed lots of snacks for the trip. We packed some hand sized cute bread pockets that were too delicious to eat, so I will tell you the perfect idea what to pack for a road trip and best option is Healthy Snacks.
Whether you are flying or going for any road tour, healthy eating should be there. All you have to do is to avoid the food which contains lots of carbohydrates, fats, sugar like candies and chocolates. When it comes to the snacks, pick those who have lots of proteins and good for your health. Let’s begin our list of 7 best healthy snacks for a road trip. Make a plan and pack your snacks!
Skip the chips and other items, when you have something salty and crunchy like nuts. There are lots of variety like peanuts, cashew, pistachio, almonds, walnuts and seeds. Although nuts have proteins and fiber, but still keep the small portion. Moreover popcorn is the other option to remove your cravings.
2. Veggies & Dip
Depends upon your trip duration, if you are going for a short one, then bring a smaller cooler with you to put some carrots, cucumbers and crunchy munchies. Other than this, you can add the container of hummus, white bean garlic dip or any other according to your taste. After this you can enjoy with your happy tummies!
3. Mini-Pita Sandwiches
The sandwiches are those snacks which give everyone the pure and healthy feeling. If you are going for the road trip, take mini-pita sandwiches along with hummus or you can also add some veggies like cucumber or carrot for a complete dish. I love to add mozzarella cheese and fresh tomato slices to the sandwich. Copy it!
4. Friendly Fruits
The best option in the list of snacks is friendly fruits to keep you fresh. Berries and grapes are what you can eat anytime during the trip. You can prepare the fruit salad by cutting them before the trip. Not only this, the dried fruits like apricots, cranberries or raisins can be a healthy part of your road diet.
5. Waffles – Healthy Snacks
Everyone is fond of waffles of any type, especially topped with the maple syrup, but for the trip, this can’t help you out. So try to make the waffles with no syrup and you can also eat them with peanut butter. The best option is to enjoy waffles with apples or bananas for a healthy meal.
6. Energy Bars
One of my favorite bars is snickers bars and I preferred to carry this instead of candy bars to the road trip. Snickers bar consists of 280 calories, 14 grams of fat and 30 grams of sugar, so it’s a bomb bar. Boost up your protein and fiber while avoiding the sugar stuff.
7. No-Bake Coconut Date Bites
The very tasty coconut date bites are easy to make if you are going for a road trip. All you have to do is to keep them cool in a cooler. These powerful bites are full of nutrients like vitamin B, iron, magnesium, vitamin A. Moreover, they are also rich in fiber.
So plan a road trip and list down the healthy snacks to carry!
