Healthy Snacking on the Go: 5 Options for Your Road trip

Whether you're taking a long summer road trip or just going to visit family, finding healthy snacks for long car rides can be challenging. If you're planning on spending an extended period in the car with family, friends, and kids, you'll want to plan with healthy options that will boost the energy needed to explore. Here are some great ideas for healthy snacks to pack in your car when traveling this summer:

Nuts & Seeds

Packing various nuts and seeds is a great way to stay full throughout your travels. Almonds, walnuts, and peanuts provide healthy fats, protein, and other essential nutrients. Seeds like chia, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds are also excellent sources of protein and fiber. Nuts and seeds are easy to pack in small bags or containers, so they're perfect on the go.

Trail mix

Trail mix is an excellent snack for road trips because it's healthy, easy to pack and eat, and will keep you full on long drives. There are wide varieties of trail mix available in stores—you can get them in bulk or single-serve packages. If you want to make your own, use nuts such as almonds, walnuts, or cashews; dried fruit like raisins or cranberries; pretzels; dark chocolate nibs (if you're feeling decadent); sunflower seeds. You can't go wrong here, so toss what you like together and enjoy.

Hard-boiled Eggs

Hard-boiled eggs are a great source of protein, and they're easy to pack and eat. Plus, they will help keep you full and energized on the road.

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Fresh fruits like apples, oranges, berries, or grapes are easily transported in a bag or container. Vegetables like carrots or celery sticks can also travel well if sliced into smaller pieces before being packed. You could grab some pre-packaged containers of hummus or guacamole to enjoy with your raw veggies.

Protein bars or shakes

Protein bars and shakes are great for those who can't or don't want to eat meat. They're also a good option if you're looking for something quick and easy to eat on the go. Protein bars can be purchased at any grocery store; many contain healthy ingredients like nuts, seeds, and fruit.

Eating healthy while on the road doesn't have to be boring or difficult. With just a little bit of planning ahead of time, you can find snacks that not only taste good but also provide sustenance for long drives this summer season. Be sure to pack plenty of water to stay hydrated during your travels. With these tips in mind, happy travels!
