Is there anything more terrifying than road trip food – I’m talking greasy diners and impulse buys from the gas station and sticky fingers in the backseat… I think I’ve painted a pretty familiar picture for you. I mean, the cost alone of travel is expensive and honestly – four meals at McDonalds isn’t exactly cheap nowadays even if it is your last resort. You can help curve the cravings of road trip grub with some simple and healthy road trip snacks.
