Road Trip Replacements

It's summer and that means road trips, and lots of times road trips mean junk food. Not this year though! Here are some alternatives from to help curb those junk food cravings while on the road.

  • Sports Drink: One Gatorade Thirst Quencher powder pack mixes up to 17 ounces.
  • Energy Bars: Clif Bars and Kashi TLC Bars supply both carbs and protein.
  • Instant Oatmeal: Heat water in the hotel coffeemaker.
  • Granola: Top your yogurt with Bear Naked Snack-Packs.
  • Honey: Snag single-serving packets at any fast-food joint.
  • Crackers: Kashi TLC crackers are 130 calories a bag.
  • Fruit: Apples, oranges, and bananas hold up well.
  • String Cheese: A good source of low-fat protein.
  • Hard-Boiled Eggs: Be sure to peel before you leave.
  • Hummus: Try squeeze-tubes of Wild Garden hummus.
  • Carrots: Mini snack bags pair perfectly with hummus.
  • Chocolate: Portion control with individual squares.

  1. Thanks for the healthy snack tips. I've been training for a half-marathon in August and now that summer is here, (well, not officially but school is out) I am finding myself eating more junk while we are on the go. These will be some good alternatives, thanks! Oh, and I hope it's okay that I peek in on this running blog - it's very helpful for first timers. :)
