Depending on where you're going, I find a lot of mini-marts, Sheetz, Quick Chek, Wawa, have healthy options to eat. They have fresh fruit and veggies, yogurts, hardboiled eggs and a good selection to choose from.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away.

I too am planning a trip, take off today after work. I packed the usual veggies/fruit but also popcorn, string cheese, Special K snack bars. The snack bars are my salvation...I can take one bite and it ties me over, or takes my mind off hunger pains tell I can eat a meal.

I always stop at a grocery or market and pick up fresh fruit and veggies. Most Marshall's have nuts and dried fruits at the registers. Planning is really important for eating well even when traveling.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

If you have a cooler you can also pack hummus, cut up veggies (carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes), the fruit is a good suggestion too. Or make your own trail mix!

Well,this is definitely possible. Oranges, apples, and bananas are portable and don't require extra packaging. Are you bringing a cooler? Then you can pack some yogurt cups. (Personally I love Greek style. Thicker and higher in protein.) Before you go, do you have time to package things like nuts into snack bags?

I have to take a road trip with my family, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to maintain my weight on the road. I find it hard to find healthy options while traveling, especially around snack time.
