Good Healthy Snacks for a Road Trip

3 Min Read

Superstores these days are almost flooded with snacks and ready-to-eat meals. But little do we realize that most of these are not healthy.

That is why it is so important to take organic snacks that come from foods close to the ground, on your travels. Plant based protein such as nuts, seeds, and legumes are excellent sources of energy and provide essential vitamins and minerals. These snacks can help keep you energized throughout your trip while also providing a healthier alternative to processed snacks, being free from additives and harmful chemicals, and definitely safer than other food products. Yes, they can be a little expensive on pocket, but absolutely worth those extra pennies.

Before we list some of the best healthy snacks for a road trip, a pro tip to note:

Ensure you are picking foods that are easy to carry, come in friendly packaging and are low on oil and grease.

Especially if you are planning a road trip, you might prefer to carry foods that don’t slop and drop on every bump. See if you can eat them with bare hands. That way you are not required to carry any cutlery. We can promise you that our plant based protein bars here at ALOHA are an easy eat on-the-go!

Here are six of the best healthy snacks for a road trip:


plant based protein
1. Nuts, Seeds and Dry fruits:


Nuts, seeds, and dry fruits are a great option for your journey. Not only do they provide you with plant-based protein and other essential nutrients, but they also make for great on-the-go snacks. They are lightweight, easy to pack, and can last for days without refrigeration. Plus, they provide a variety of flavors to choose from! So if you’re looking to snack healthily while on the road, nuts, seeds and dry fruits are the perfect choice.


2. Roasted Vegetable Snacks:


Roasted vegetable snacks are a great way to get the health benefits of vegetables without having to spend time cooking them. These snacks are full of plant-based protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They are also a great way to add some variety to your diet. On top of that, they make for an excellent healthy snack for a road trip or for when you need something quick and convenient.

Try to pick the ones that are roasted using fewer amounts of water and oil.


3. Whole-grain Crackers, Oats & Popcorns:


Time to add some carbohydrates. It is important to fuel your brain, heart and muscles all the time. They keep your body working. Carbohydrates not only aid in digestion but also relieve you from fatigue by lifting your mood.

Constant traveling or driving can be extremely exhaustive for some, and having healthy carbs on hand will keep your energy level up. Look for organic and whole-grain crackers, oats, or popcorn, as these are less refined and do not contain any unnecessary additives or preservatives.


4. Avocado:


Known as a superfood, Avocados are highly nutritious, packed with over 20 vitamins and minerals. Don’t let it’s high calorie count confuse you. Compared to cheese and butter, the calorie count is very small and doesn’t add to your belly as fast.

Avocados are important because they are a healthy fat and rich source of fiber. You must have some filling fats, especially if you’re heading north, to a place with a cooler climate. What more delicious way, than Avocados!


plant based protein bars
