Tips / Other

Road trips can be long and exhausting, but with the right music, company and snacks, you can make it better. Skip the junk food this ride and opt for some healthy snacks to keep everyone going and feeling good:

 

PeaTos
PeaTos are a delicious junk food alternative — a “junk food” taste without the junk. If you are normally a fan of Cheetos or Funyuns, this is the perfect alternative. The Classic Cheese and Classic Onion are comparable, and even better than the popular snacks. There are two other flavors, Zesty Ranch and Fiery Onion. If you haven’t seen these in stores, use the store locator to help you find them on the road, or order in bulk online.

 

Smart Sweet
For candy lovers who want to cut down on sugar, Smart Sweets are a great alternative. The founder, Tara is a candy lover herself who experienced the negative effects of what too much sugar can do. Smart Sweets offers alternatives to all your favorites, including Sweetish Fish, Gummy Worms, gummy bears and more.

 

Pre-Cut Fruits and Vegetables
Before leaving for the road trip pick up some of your favorite fruits and vegetables to cut up and put in little containers or bags for your crew to enjoy on the road. There is nothing better to bring along than fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

From the Ground Up Cauliflower Snacks
These snacks made out of cauliflower and butternut squash are the perfect alternative for snacks like pretzels, Cheez-Its and tortilla chips. The plant base allows you to enjoy more bites per serving and gives you the satisfaction of snacking without the guilt. My personal favorite is the sea salt cauliflower crackers.
