Healthy Road Trip Snacks

If you’ve been following along on our Instagram feeds and Stories, you may have noticed that Jess and I have been on the road quite a bit lately.  We recently wrapped up a really exciting Fall campaign with Uptown Shopping Centre in Victoria and before that we explored Seattle and the Lodges on Vashon.  With all these trips, we’re trying to be extra-conscious of our eating/drinking habits. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of bad eating habits, especially while on the road. With that being said, we were inspired to come up with a list of healthy road trip snacks and we thought we’d share with you!

When it comes to snacks it’s always nice to have a variety! Sweet, salty, and of course, beverages! There are some great healthy options available so you can avoid loading up on junk food at the gas station. I think we can all admit that we have done that before!

Healthy Road Trip Snacks – What to Pack

Here are the items that we took on the road with us on our last few trips. They are a variety of products that will keep you full, energized and healthy!

  • Nuts/Dried Fruit – Choose a selection of nuts and dried fruits to kick those sweet/salty cravings. They are also a great source of protein! Naked Snacks offer a variety of delicious flavours, including my personal favourite –  the sriracha cashews.
  •  Kombucha – Trade out your pop for a kombucha! Filled with antioxidants and detoxifying agents, kombucha has so many health benefits. It’s great for energy boosting, after a late night, or to break down foods when you eat too much! Rise offers so many delicious flavours!
  • Gummy Candies – What is a road trip without candy?? You can still have your sweet fix without loading up on sugar! Smart Sweets has a variety of gummy candies that are free from artificial ingredients, only have 3g of sugar per bag! Guilt-free 😉 My personal favourite are the sour gummy bears.
  • Healthy Chips – Another go-to snack for the road. Who does’t love to snack on a bag of chips?? Thankfully there are some great healthy options out there – like Hardbite Chips and Terra Chips (made from root vegetables). They have lower sodium and less fat. Another guilt-free option 🙂
  • Natural Candy – It is nice to have a variety of candies to fill all your sweet cravings! Dairy-free chocolates and caramels are a great option to include in your collection of healthy snacks. Cocomels are delicious coconut milk caramels that are chewy and SO yummy!! The chocolate covered cocomel bites are definitely a must-try!
  • Energy Drink – If you don’t want to stop for coffee but are looking for another energy boost, Advocare Spark is a great option. This powder easily dissolves in water to create a delicious tasting energy drink. Filled with vitamins, minerals and nutrients, this is a much healthier (and very effective) alternative to sugary energy drinks that can be harmful to your body. Learn more about Advocare below!

    Love this round up of snacks! Looking forward to trying the low sugar candy for sure. My new go to “meal on the go” are the Sous Vida (probably spelling this wrong) egg bites from Starbucks. They are low carb, gluten free and filled with protein.
