The Healthiest — and Yummiest — Snacks to Pack For Your Next Road Trip
Going on a road trip for your next vacation is one of the funnest ways to unwind if you ask us. No lines at the airport, expensive airline tickets, or trying to cram everything into a carry-on to avoid baggage claim. Although you'll get to a further location a lot faster in a plane, there's something exciting about taking a car adventure. You can listen to your favorite music as loudly as you want, and stop anywhere along the way. But if you're trying to be more health-conscious, frequently stopping at fast-food places probably isn't on your list. That's why we've compiled a list of healthy snacks that'll last as long as your road trip.
