In an ideal world, you’d certainly spend days before your trip cooking up a storm in the kitchen to create a myriad of healthy, delicious, and homemade treats to eat while on the road. However, relocating isn’t a normal road trip but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat healthy while on a relocation adventure!
Just like on a normal road trip, there are many times that you’re going to get hungry when relocating. During such times, you’ll be tempted to grab a fatty snack or that chocolate bar at convenience store or gas station but that’s only if you aren’t prepared with a healthy snack. In most cases, this will be against your resolution to eat and stay healthy at all times, which we strongly believe you can do even during your relocation adventure.
For this reason and to help you stick to your healthier lifestyle, we’ve compiled 5 easy and quick snacks for your next relocation adventure.
Low-Fat Banana Muffins
Relocating can sometimes be stressful especially if not well planned. Grabbing some banana muffins will be of great help. In addition to smelling so good, banana muffins are high in stress-reducing potassium, which would be of great help during the relocation adventure. You can consider adding little raisins to the recipes for extra taste and of course fiber.
Carrots and Grapes
Carrots and grapes are of great nutritional value. Carrots have fiber while grapes are packed with Vitamins C and K. We suggest this for your relocation adventure because there are those times during such adventures when you want to grab something to eat merely because you’re bored! Carrots and grapes are healthy and easy to eat and will keep you busy without making a mess. You should nonetheless remember not to go overboard with grapes because they have lots of sugar.
As a whole grain full of fiber and complex carbs, popcorn will perfectly provide you with energy and help your body stay regular while on the relocation adventure. Make sure you skip the movie theater butter variety or the microwave popcorn as they’re unhealthy. Instead, go for the healthier and natural ones.
Natural Peanut Butter
We all love peanut butter, don’t we? The all-time favorite sandwich spread is the perfect vehicle to help you enjoy whole-grain crackers, celery sticks, apple wedges and pretzels at home so why not do the same while on a relocation adventure. However, remember to skip the additives, and only go for an all-natural peanut butter that has only two ingredients: peanuts and salt.
Feel like tucking in some proteins while on your relocation adventure? Grab some Greek yogurt. It’s not only delicious but is full of protein and will amazingly keep you full until your next meal. You can consider adding some nuts and fruits for fiber and energy, and you’ll be good to go.
Your relocation adventure should never be stressful or boring. In fact, it shouldn’t be an excuse to eat unhealthy Skittles for breakfast and ice cream for dinner. These healthy, easy and quick snacks will keep you nourished, feeling full, and add you energy since your body is already low on energy after the packing stuff. Above all, they’ll help you enjoy the relocation adventure!
