Healthy Snack Options While on the Road

April 29, 2013

When you go on a road trip, it’s inevitable that you will get the munchies along the way at one point or another. Whether you are packing snacks to take with you or you are heading into the gas station, there are always healthy options for you to grab.

There is no reason for you to go in and grab a candy bar and a bottle of soda when there are healthy and tasty options, including snack mixes, raw nuts, dried fruit and energy bars.

Fresh fruit is high in vitamins and minerals. It can also help to protect your skin from harmful UV rays because of the collagen and antioxidant levels. As it gets hot outside, fresh fruit can taste less than desirable – and even spoil before you have a chance to eat it.

A variety of dried fruits are available through Tropical Foods. These have the same great taste and benefits as fresh fruit, only easier to take with you.

If you love trail mix snack mix but find it hard to eat in the car, Tropical Foods also has a ReCharge® line of bars. This allows you to get all of the various snack mix flavors in an easy to eat bar. You can choose from such flavors as Diet Delight, PB&J Mix, Sweet Heat and Student Food. As you drive and eat, you don’t have to worry about the possibility of spilling your snack mix bag and losing a large amount of it.

Another great thing to grab on the road are Grabeez® as they are offered in a re-sealable cup. These will fit right in the cup holders of your car and make snacking a lot easier and healthier. You can choose from various nuts and other snacks. Best of all, these contain no cholesterol and no trans fats, which means you can munch away without being concerned with what you are putting into your body.

Driving can become boring, so you want something to munch on, there is no rule that says you have to eat junk food when you’re on a road trip. Ultimately, you should be choosing food that keeps you full without affecting your blood sugar too much – especially if you’re the one behind the wheel.

Great snacks are out there, you simply have to be open to them. With a variety of healthy options from Tropical Foods, you will find it easier than ever to enjoy a delicious snack that’s good for you when you’re headed out onto the road. Find them just about anywhere!
