10 Must Have Snack and Meal Recipes for a Long Road Trip

 In Make, Tips & Tricks

To be honest, I never thought I needed recipes for this type of occasion until I started looking for some to whip up for MY upcoming road trip. Surprisingly, there really wasn’t much out there to support my foodie taste buds and strong desire to avoid store bought sh*t. To help you out on your next road trip, I’m sharing the recipes I’m planning to make/pack for my 28 hour cross country road trip!

To let you in on the scoop, I am traveling around the country with my boyfriend as he pursues his professional hockey career. I am beyond excited to cook in a new kitchen and bring you all on the ride with me this year!! We’ll be starting out the year in Boise, Idaho so stay tuned for A LOT of potato recipes. Until then, here’s what I’m bringing on the 3 day roadie:

1. Hummus Veggie Wraps by Sugar Spices Life

Hummus veggie wraps. Sauted vegetables, avocado, hummus, greens and feta cheese rolled into a sun-dried tomato lunch. Light, flavorful and perfect for a summer lunch.

Pre-pack these veggie wraps and stick them in a cooler. You’ll have a nutritious, filling lunch without all the crap in the gas station options.

6. No Bake, Chewy Peanut Butter Granola Bars by Ambitious Kitchen

No bake peanut butter granola bars packed with wholesome ingredients like chia seeds, flax, almonds, and dark chocolate. These chewy granola bars will be your new favorite grab-and-go snack!

Is it clear that I love all things peanut butter? You cannot go on a road trip without packing granola bars. The store bought ones are frankly full of sh*t and thus I HIGHLY recommend making your own, non processed version. These are actually to die for and you can swap with sunflower butter if allergies are a factor!
