Road trips – you’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t love them! Whether it be googling a new hike and making a day of it, surprising a faraway friend or family member with a last minute visit, or picking a random country town on the map to explore.
There’s something about jumping in the car, throwing on a great playlist or true-crime podcast, and hitting the road that gets our blood pumping and our hearts smiling.
Picking a couple of days a month to get in the car and go somewhere new provides countless benefits. We get our daily vitamin D dose, we stimulate our brain with new surroundings, we spend quality time with friends or loved ones away from home duties, and we learn to appreciate what we have in our own backyard. Not to mention we get our bodies moving in one way or another.
But, road trips are also an easy way to eat away at our wallets and undo our week’s exercise efforts.
A drive-thru bacon & egg muffin & milk-y latte for brekkie, a pre-packed chicken schnitzel sandwich & Snickers bar from a servo for lunch, or a chunky steak pie & brownie from a local bakery for afternoon tea.
These things are (of course) delicious and #balance means treating ourselves is so important, but some being a little proactive and packing some travel snacks can save us both cash and a sugar headache.
Some key tips for packing for the road:
A super easy example – an egg & veggie slice that can be eaten hot or cold. Throw in a heap of grated or shredded veggies (zucchini, carrot, onion, sweet potato) into a casserole dish, top with whisked eggs, add in some salt & pepper, and you have an easy breakfast to eat on the run.
It doesn’t take long to notice how much better we feel while away from home. Happy travelling!
