11 Vegetarian Road Trip Food suggestions
1. Dried Fruit. I love to bring apricots and mango with me whenever I want vegan road trip snacks, but there are other great options available like dried pineapple, apples, and blueberries. If you’re ever in need of some good dried fruit, Traders Joe’s is always my first choice. But if that’s not an option for you, don’t worry! You can find buy vegetarian road trip meals.
2. Nuts.I adore bringing almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans and homemade trail mix on road trips. Costco and many other grocery stores have bulk departments where I get the best deals on nuts. The next step is to pack the nuts in little reusable snack bags that are non-toxic, BPA-free, and phthalate-free.
3. Fresh seasonal fruit. Bananas are a must-have in my home, as well as in my car on the road. I also enjoy packing seasonal fresh fruit during the summer months. When traveling with fruit, the most common problem is bruising, so I pack a produce saver food storage container to keep it safe.
4. Avocado. This is one great options for your vegan road trip meals. Avocados are high in good fats and easy to transport. Simply cut it in half and use a spoon to scoop out the inside. Another fantastic option is to scoop all of avocado into a bowl with some corn chips for an easy snack. Guacamole may always be made ahead of time!
5. Veggies and Hummus. Bring a container of your favorite veggies cut into sticks or bite-size pieces (carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, cucumber, jicama). A small tub of hummus, peanut butter, or your preferred nut butter or dip is also welcome. They’re also excellent as a snack on their own.
6. Yogurt. This is a fantastic easy and convenient snack, and if you’re a standard vegetarian, there are now so many options for coconut and almond milk-based yogurt.
7. Popcorn. This is one of my favorite vegan snack for road trips. I enjoy salty and crispy snacks, but they can be high in calories, so lately I’ve been eating popcorn. This is a fantastic method to satisfy my sweet, crunchy and salty snack cravings!
8. Potato Chips. Another junk food I can’t resist are potato chips. They’re one of my favorite snacks to consume on road trips, and I usually feel guilty afterwards. To assuage my guilt, I try to find chips made with natural ingredients, like Miss Vickie’s Jalepeno!
9. Granola. This is excellent to bring since it may be eaten as a breakfast cereal, a crunchy snack, or used to complement yogurt. (If you intend to eat it as cereal, ensure you pack some coconut or almond milk).
10. Hard boiled or deviled eggs. Boil a dozen eggs before a road trip if you are lacto-ovo vegetarian. A fantastic source of protein! If you’re traveling with very young children, this food might be a good idea to save for when you stop for lunch outside the vehicle!
11. Apples and Peanut Butter You can also try mixing in some of the following: sliced banana, strawberries, and other berries (blackberry, strawberry or blueberry), chopped applesauce or apple wedges cooked with cinnamon and nuts like almonds, peanuts or cashews). Nuts and fruit have previously been mentioned, but one of my favorite combinations is apple slices with sunflower seed butter. I promise you’ll enjoy it if you try it; it’s one of my favourite vegetarian meals.
