Traveling for Mother's Day this year? We've got a list of road trip essentials that will keep mom and the whole family happy!
We know that finding a way to eat healthy can be a challenge on the road. Nutritious meals and snacks are the best thing you can pack! Though it may be tempting to eat the greasy junk foods and empty calories, they will make you feel less than stellar. Packing whole grains, fruits, and vegetables are essential to keep your energy and sugar levels sustained and your body feeling great.
Here are our top road trip snacks to fuel Mother's Day adventures:
- Breakfast Cookie Minis: Have an early morning ahead? Breakfast Cookie Minis are the perfect breakfast snack to eat on the road. Packed with whole grains and fruit sweetened, you'll feel great for the trip ahead. Pair with a banana for a complete serving of fruit! Or substitute with a full-size Breakfast Cookie as a great breakfast meal.
- Veggies and Hummus: Hummus is a good way to get protein in a portable way and tastes delicious with so many great snacks! We love pairing hummus with carrots, bell peppers, and cucumber slices!
- Nut and Seeds: Our new Blue Bike® Sprouted Snacks are the perfect road trip snack since they are packed with protein filled nuts and nutritious sprouted seeds! (Curious about why the seeds are sprouted? Click to learn more.) Snacks that are high in protein make great road trip snacks since protein satisfies hunger. Sunflower seeds are a good source of healthy fats and are also filled with minerals like magnesium.
- Mozzarella Sticks and Apple Slices: Some things are better eaten together! Apples and cheese are a great combo since they are in different food groups. Since we should be eating all 5 food groups each day, this is a filling and delicious snack to pack!
Don't forget the water, sunglasses, coloring books, and entertainment for the family! What are your go-to road trip essentials?
