Thanksgiving is coming up in less than two weeks, and for many people this means traveling. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving and a few days before Christmas are some of the busiest travel days of the year. Packing snacks for the road is best, but sometimes you just need a treat when you are road tripping. Grabbing a snack while stopping for gas can be tempting, so here are my top snack picks that will keep you on track, and satisfied.
Quest Bars: 21g Carbs/ 8g Fat/ 21g Protein (macros very slightly depending on flavor)
thinkThin Bars: 22g Carbs/ 9g Fat/ 20g Protein (macros very slightly depending on flavor)

RX Bar: 23g Carbs/ 9g Fat/ 12g Protein (macros very slightly depending on flavor)
Fresh Fruit: macros will very depending on fruit, but you can count on about 15g-30g Carbs (depending on size) and no fat or protein.

All the water to stay hydrated! If you need some caffeine during your long drive I suggest black coffee or black iced tea. Sometimes I go for a Diet Coke fountain pop (it’s just the best!) but I’m not recommending this as a “healthy option”. If you do chose a fountain drink as a treat, I recommend grabbing a diet, so you avoid using up a lot of macros and tons of sugar!
I hope this helps for your upcoming travels!
