Food is one of the first things I plan and pack when preparing for a trip. (I’m not the only one right?!) Being the health nut that I am, having high quality food to snack on during a road trip, plane ride and/or stay at a hotel is a must. Sometimes I struggle with what to bring, as most of the food I normally eat needs to be cooked or refrigerated. But last weekend I put extra effort into my food-packing for our 8 hour road trip and the results turned out fairly well!
Being that I am always on the search for new snack essentials I thought it would be helpful to share some of my snack ideas. All snacks mentioned are gluten-free, easily portable and nutritious. Most of these suggestions are food that I brought on my last trip, but there are a few extras.
Before packing fresh fruit, I always wash it in vinegar water, rinse and then let dry so that it is ready to eat. The vinegar helps kill mold and makes the fruit last longer.
Obviously these snack ideas barely brush the surface; there are so many options, especially if you have access to a full refrigerator once you reach your destination. Hopefully these suggestions are helpful. I’d love to know what food you always bring on trips. Or do you even pack food?
