Healthy Road Trip Treats

2-20-2015-HealthyRoadTripTreats

When you plan a road trip, part of the planning is putting together some treats for the drive, especially if you have a long drive and don’t want to stop for snacks. If you put a cooler in the tow vehicle or right behind the seats in a Class A or Class C RV, you’ll have drinks and snacks handy for everyone.

In addition to putting together healthy snacks for the drive, you need to make sure your RV is ready for the trip. Call the service department at Leisure Time RV to schedule a service appointment to have the RV serviced or checked for a long trip.

Healthy Snacks

Cut carrots, celery, radishes, broccoli and cauliflower into sticks and bite-size pieces. Place them in zippered snack bags. All you need to do is grab one out of the cooler when you are hungry. If you want to mix it up a bit, make baggies with carrot sticks, celery sticks, blue cheese, cheddar cheese cubes and apples.

For something with a little more substance, slice summer sausage and pair it with your favorite crackers and small slices of pepper jack cheese or your favorite cheese. Try different flavors such as green onion cheese or pepperoni cheese.

Healthy Drinks

While you may want to keep some soda in the cooler, be sure to add some bottled water and your favorite iced tea. If the kids are not big on iced tea or if they are too young to drink tea, add small bottles of juice for them.

Lunch on the Go

Even if you plan on stopping for lunch, you can make mini sandwiches for snacks – or they can be eaten for lunch if you change your mind about stopping or you can’t find a place to suit your palate at lunch time. Make different types of sandwiches: ham and cheese, tuna, egg salad, salami and cheese. Cut them into quarters and store them in an airtight container or in zipper baggies. If you use zipper baggies, don’t put them directly on the ice or they’ll get soggy.

Stop by Leisure Time RV

Be sure to service your RV or have it checked, especially if you haven’t used it in some time. Stop by Leisure Time RV for service or to pick up any accessories or necessities you may need for the trip.
