The Best Healthy Road Trip Snacks

The Best Healthy Road Trip Snacks

Do you like road trips? Do you like snacks? Great! Here are some of my favorite, and also the best, healthy road trip snacks. It's hard to take fresh food on road trips, but below I've got some of my best recommendations for what travels well in the car.

Two of these snacks need to be stored in a cooler. They don't have to be freezing cold, but they're better if they're a little chilled. One of them, the munch mix, just needs to be kept in a zip top bag - to keep the popcorn fresh.

You can scale these up and down as necessary. We were going on a short road trip (less than 4 hours) this weekend, but I wanted to take a few snacks with us. So making two snack boxes and a little munch mix was the way to go.

I hope you enjoy these snacks - happy travels!

Combine in a plastic or glass container. Chill in a cooler till ready to eat. 

Protein Box | Makes 1 serving

Sprinkle the egg with the salt and pepper. Put the peanut butter in a small container. Arrange all the items in a plastic or glass container. Chill in a cooler till ready to eat. 


If you're a fan of Starbucks Bistro Boxes like I am, you'll notice that their protein box is the inspiration for the one above. 

Also, this is not a sponsored post - I just like all the brands listed above. If you're wondering, they can all be found at Whole Foods
