Healthy Road Trip Snacks

While on occasion you can find me stopping at Taco Bell for a quick bite during a long drive (#guiltypleasure), in general, I am a firm believer in packing healthy goodies for road trips. Sometimes long drives make me a little nauseous, so combine that with too much chocolate or chips, and I can promise you won't be feeling too hot by the time you arrive at your final destination. Driving to school, I knew I wanted to bring a bunch of nutritious eats to ensure I would be energized and ready to set up my dorm. So, I thought I would share some of my favorites with you since it's the season for college road trips after all!


+ Trail Mix
This is my one of my favorites because I love getting a little chocolate along with all the nutrients that are packed in nuts and raisins. The nuts will keep you full and the raisins will give you potassium, iron and energy!

+ Smoothies
If you want something easy to grab while driving, a smoothie is a great choice. I'll often swing by Starbucks and get their Strawberry Banana smoothie before a long drive because it fills me up really quickly and is packed with a ton of protein. Plus it's refreshing and is great for the summertime!

+ Skinny Pop 
If you want something light and salty while driving, this one is a no brainer. You know my obsession with Skinny Pop when it comes to studying, but I also love it to munch on in the car. It's not super messy and you won't feel gross after eating a bunch of it unlike normal popcorn.

+ Carrots and Hummus 
When I drove up north last week with my friends, I brought along hummus and carrots that I had in my refrigerator at home. Little did I know that they make such a refreshing snack while driving - I honestly could not stop eating them! The carrots were a perfect little crunch and the hummus is an awesome source of fiber.

+ Salted Almonds 
Another salty snack, almonds keep you so full and you only need a few to feel satisfied. I often keep a little container in my bag or on the inside of my car to grab if I need a little something to eat.

+ Clementines
These are more ripe in the winter, but I find clementines incredibly addicting and the perfect sweet and juicy treat. You can pack a bunch in a bag and snack on them with your friends and family.

What do you like to eat on road trips?

  1. Skinny Pop is AMAZING, and a very travel friendly (and beach friendly) snack. Great list!

  2. Those who are thrown into fits of rage or bouts of enfeebled snark by replica watches sale like this will have plenty to say, but in my opinion, the dial and case look cool, refreshing, and fun. And he took a plane to rolex replica sale to get the watch. How he did it, I do remeber, but he came to replica watches uk and got it somehow. The reason he did it. Was he could get it send to Denmark. Because of the customs, they will take it and not return the rolex replica sale. Or do you have a phone nummer I could call you. Or any other way to communicate. Now they have destroyed it. The gradient dial is nice but then marred by the replica watches printed on it, and I appreciate the use of green highlight instead of red, but other than that this watch looks like a giant disaster. Apart from his fee some of the hublot replica will be quite pricy. For a start it has a new case. Attached is a copy the Customs Notice of Removal. They confiscated my watch.
