Road trips. They bring up memories of great times with good friends. Getting lost, finding new favorite places, meeting new people, and eating lots of processed food from gas stations and rest stops. Upgrade your road trip by packing minimally processed, all natural, Paleo road trip snacks. Most of these Paleo road trip snacks can be purchased online or at your local natural food store, others can be made with simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.
9 Must Have Paleo Road Trip Snacks
This Epic Hunt and Harvest mix is a unique take on traditional trail mix. Nothing but grass-fed beef and a mix of nuts gives this Paleo road trip snack a healthy dose of protein, fiber, and healthy fat.
I used to enjoy hunting for interesting new chip flavors at gas stations while road tripping. Have you ever tried chicken and waffle flavored potato chips? One look at the laundry list of ingredients on these chips turned me off immediately. Try these sweet potato chips instead. They only have three ingredients, sweet potatoes, coconut oil, and sea salt.
This trail mix will help you power through those long hauls without weighing you down.
While any raw nut makes an excellent road trip snack due to their fat, fiber, and protein content, macadamia nuts are a real winner. They contain better omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acid ratios then any other nut.
Buffalo pretzels used to be my all time favorite road trip snack until I looked at the ingredients. The laundry list of artificial ingredients including MSG explained their addictive quality. These Buffalo Spice Almonds give me that buffalo flavor and crunch I crave along with a healthy dose of protein and fiber (and none of the artificial stuff).
Granola bars make an excellent grab and go snack or meal replacement. Many conventional granola bars on the market have nutritional profiles like candy bars. Offering more sugar and processed ingredients then nutrients. Try making your own Paleo Granola Bars featuring fruit and nuts.
