Summer Road Trip: 4 Tips & Tricks On Planning a Road Trip

Summer Road Trip: 4 Tips & Tricks On Planning a Road Trip

There’s nothing quite like a summer road trip. The open road is full of possibilities, beautiful weather, and lots of interesting places to visit. If you’re traveling on a budget, you may be looking for ways to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to your summer road trip.

While there are many ways to save a few bucks while you’re on the open road with a full car, one of the simplest tricks is packing just a little more into that car — healthy snacks and drinks that can keep you feeling full until you reach your destination. After all, gas stations aren’t exactly renowned for their fine dining, anyway.

We’ve put together some of our favorite recipes to help make your summer road trip a success.

Chocolate Protein Muffins

Breakfast on the road is a breeze with these gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate protein muffins. They’re kid-tested and approved, easy to make, delicious, and pack plenty of nutrition to help keep you full throughout the day.

You can bake these muffins ahead of time using creamy chocolate fudge plant-based protein powder, gluten free oat flour, bananas, eggs or egg replacement, maple syrup, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla extract, unsweetened cocoa powder, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Simply unwrap and enjoy on your trip for a quick, easy breakfast.

Protein Vegan Jerky

Jerky is a road trip staple thanks to its high protein content, convenient packaging, and no-mess reputation. Whether you prefer to eat a plant-based diet or are simply looking for a healthier option with less sodium, this protein vegan jerky is the perfect solution.

Whip up a batch a few days before your road trip using unsweetened plant-based protein powder, dry soy curls, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, white vinegar, and seasonings. The jerky can be baked in your home oven and stored in an airtight container until you leave for your trip.

Protein and Oatmilk Blueberry Bars

Granola bars are delicious, but commercial brands are often packed with artificial ingredients and excess sugar that you simply don’t need. These protein and oatmilk blueberry bars pack all of the convenience and flavor of a granola bar into a nutritious, easy to bake package. You’ll love having these handy for snacking on the road. The protein comes from organic vanilla oatmilk protein powder, while fresh blueberries, cashew butter, and honey add a hint of sweetness. These work for a light breakfast or a midday snack that the whole family will love.

Hydrated Arnold Palmer

Water is important for staying hydrated, but sometimes, you want something with a little more flavor. Skip the soda on your next road trip and pour yourself a hydrated Arnold Palmer. All you’ll need is some unsweetened iced tea and a packet of lemon lime Hydro Boost Rapid Hydration Mix. The added electrolytes will help keep you hydrated and the delicious taste goes down smooth and easy. You’ll never even miss the soda, we promise.
