Road Trip Treats


T-minus 4 hours until we leave to meet up with our friends to head out on our road trip!  Wooo-hooo!




Since everybody else is working today, I have been busy making dinner for tonight and yummy treats to take on the road.

When packing for a road trip, here are some healthy and easy take-a-long snacks that are great for the car and the remainder of your vacation.




  • Individual applesauce cups, yogurt or cottage cheese (don’t forget disposable spoons!)
  • Yogurt covered fruit snacks
  • Low-fat mozzarella cheese sticks (string cheese)
  • Homemade muffins with lots of nutritious add-ins:  ours include pineapple, carrots, pecans and dried cherries (recipe coming Thursday)
  • Roasted, No Salt Almonds – protein and potassium in one!
  • Graham Crackers with individual packets of peanut butter
  • Granola or protein bars
  • Fresh fruit
  • Wheat Thins or Triscuits – lots of whole grains and easy to eat.
  • Low-fat popcorn – great source of fiber.  Pop a few bags before heading out or just take with and pop when you get to you destination
  • Carrot Sticks – hello vitamin A!
  • Veggie Salsa with Baked Chips – a great way to get an extra serving of vegetables.
  • Water, water and more water!




Happy traveling!
