I wrote this post about two weeks ago, but it got lost in the moving chaos. So, here’s my take on road trip snacks, better late than never!
As we prepared to embark on our 1,300 mile road trip from San Antonio to Las Vegas, I’m trying to make sure I don’t forget anything…
And one thing I keep forgetting is that we’ll need plenty of snacks and drinks for the road. We’ll be travelling through areas (I’m looking at you, West Texas) that are less populated and won’t offer an abundance of convenience stores or restaurants.
So, here’s my shopping list that I’ll take with me to the store tomorrow so that we’re stocked up and ready to go:
Dried fruit: Quick, easy, and not messy.
Annie’s bunny snack mix: Whole wheat, healthy snacks in cute bunny shapes.
Sandwich-making supplies: We’re trying something other than the typical pb & j. Peanut butter and banana slices in a whole wheat pita pocket sound pretty good to me.
Cereal bars and/or fiber bars: These work well as a quick breakfast if we want to hit the road early.
La Croix sparkling water: I’m addicted to this stuff! No sugar or artificial sweetener…just bubbly goodness. Available in a variety of all-natural flavors.
Kashi dark chocolate oatmeal cookies: 12 grams of whole grains in each cookie. Plus, they’re delicious!
Pears: Good source of fiber and vitamin C to help keep us healthy on the road.
Note: All opinions are my own. I was not compensated for writing this post. However, if the pear people want to send me a free bushel, I won’t argue.
