Road trips and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly. Whether driving to your favorite music festival or taking a family vacation across country, nothing beats getting out on the road and seeing the country. But when you're spending so much time in the car, it's easy to forget to eat healthy. Too many drive-thrus and gas station snacks can start to take a toll.
It's not as hard as you would think to eat healthy on the road. Simple things like eating dried fruit or trail mix instead of candy or stopping at a grocery store for some fruit or vegetables instead of a one dollar cheeseburger at the drive-thru. A little planning ahead can also go a long way. Pack a cooler with some sandwiches and other healthy options to cut down on stops and bad food. Lastly, if you like to stop and eat, website The Eat Well Guide can give you a list of healthy dining options along your route. Choose something that sounds good stay healthy while you cruise.
