Tips for the Healthy Road Trip Snacks

You can scale these up and down as necessary. For short road trips, I find that two boxes are enough.

These snacks need to be stored in a cooler. They don’t have to be freezing cold, but they’re better if they’re a little chilled.

I use these glass meal prep containers for these snacks.
