If you find yourself travelling considerably each week, healthy eating can be challenging!
So, rather than relying on greasy roadside diners for nutrition, why not pack your car with a variety of nutritious foods?
Here are a few suggestions:
#1 Fruit – freeze grapes or berries the night prior to your journey to have as a cool snack.
#2 Vegetables – sliced raw veg such as carrots, peppers, broccoli, or green beans.
#3 Natural yoghurt – topped with a little muesli and a handful of extra nuts.
#4 Wholegrain sandwich filled with a generous amount of spinach leaves, cucumber, tomatoes and a small serving of lean meat.
#5 Low fat fruit muffins – why not try baking your own healthier version with extra seeds and nuts, and reduced sugar? Pop into the freezer, and take out the night before you need them.
#6 Popcorn – choose unbuttered/unsweetened popcorn, seasoned with herbs for extra flavour.
#7 Trail mix – using wholegrain cereal, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and a few chocolate chips. Make your own and store in individual zipper bags.
#8 Fresh fruit smoothie made with raspberries, mango, semi-skimmed milk, natural yoghurt and ground flaxseeds.
#9 Nut based granola bar – if you’re looking for a healthier version check out this recipe: Healthy Granola Bars.
#10 Bottled water – staying well hydrated is absolutely essential if you spend a lot of time on the road.
To keep your snacks extra cool in the summer months, invest in a cooler, and store in the boot of your car.
