Healthy Road Trip Snacks

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 6/4/2018 to Diet and Nutrition

I love road trips, but it’s challenging to find healthy foods while traveling. While some gas stations and rest stops carry a few options (like fruit or pita chips) I usually don’t have much to choose from and I often end up hangry if I am not prepared. The restaurants aren’t always the healthiest, either!

Whether you are traveling solo, with a friend or significant other, or with the whole family, here is a list of healthy road trip snacks you can mix and match to fit all of your nutritional needs:


Bananas               Carrots                 Grape tomatoes

Berries                 Celery sticks       Cucumber slices

Oranges               Snap Peas

Apples or applesauce packets

Dried fruit


Avocado or guacamole                  Yogurt                       Grass-fed/pasture raised jerky

Hummus                                         Nuts                           Protein bars

Peanut butter (or any other kind of nut butter)


Air popped popcorn


Whole wheat crackers

Rice cakes


Coconut water

Green Juice (careful of the sugar!)


Homemade smoothies

Natural energy drinks


Don’t forget to pack other essentials, such as water, silver gel (for hand sanitizer) paper towels, wipes, and a reusable bag for trash!

If you need to stock up on bars, dried fruits, nuts, smoothie powders, energy drinks, bottled water or silver gel, you can shop online or stop by your nearest Vitamin Discount Center!
