In this excerpt he talks about healthy road trip snacks.
“So I learned an important rule for road trips: when you find a good grocery store, stock up. On foods that you can eat on the go, with no prep.” ~Matt Frazier
Very quickly, I learned what foods worked best in the car to keep me from resorting to junk:
- Fresh fruit
- Fresh vegetables
- Hummus (I’d eat it fast because it wouldn’t last more than a day without a fridge)
- Trail mix/granola
- Smoothies made from just fruit (the pre-made kind — definitely not ideal, but a way to get a lot of good calories quickly)
- Giant salads from the salad bar — I’d grab enough to last for two meals, dump a bunch of chickpeas on top, and if I was lucky enough to be at a Whole Foods, add some oil-free tahini garlic dressing.
- Anything cracker-like but still healthy (could be baked corn chips, Wasa crispbreads, rice cakes, etc.)
We want to hear from you. What are you favorite healthy road trip snacks?
