Road trips are a great way to see the country, have new experiences, and visit with family and friends. One thing that all road trips need is a good supply of snacks. However, it can be easy to binge on junk food and forget your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier. We are here to help with some suggestions for healthy road trip snacks so you can feel more energized during your 2020 travels.
Road mix is a lighter version of the traditional trail mix. Mix ingredients like popcorn, puffed brown rice, freeze-dried veggies, and kale chips. This snack is low in calories and high in nutrients.
Thinly slice eggplant and spray them lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with your favorite seasonings and bake in the oven until crisp. These chips should satisfy your cravings for a crunchy, salty snack.
Avoid store-bought granola bars that are high in sugar and fat. This recipe uses oats, olives, kale chips, and crispy rice cereal to take on a Mediterranean taste that is more like a meal than a snack. If olives aren’t your thing, try this savory recipe with oat, honey, and sundried tomatoes.
Fruits and Veggies
One of the simplest healthy snacks to prepare is sliced fruits and vegetables. Cut up an assortment of cucumbers, baby carrots, strawberries, and apples. Use hummus instead of dip or dressing.
