Fueling Up For A Road Trip

Jodie Parus, RD, LD

When you begin packing for your vacation or road trip this summer, don’t forget to plan for fuel along the way…for your body that is! Traveling can be exhausting, so you will want to take things that will give you energy and keep you alert, especially if you are the driver.

Stopping at a gas station and running in for a restroom break can present you with a myriad of tempting treats to eat. If you are starving you are more likely to grab something you normally wouldn’t. Plan ahead and pack some of the following smart choices for your travel. They will leave you feeling satisfied and you will have more money to spend at your destination.

Water
Apples, grapes
Carrots, cherry tomatoes
Nut butter, Nuts
Trail Mix
Snack bars, muffins
Sandwiches or wraps
Hummus
Yogurt

Some of the foods will require a cooler, while others do not. Pack some of each, hit the road and enjoy your trip!
