How To … Survive A Road Trip – Vegan Snack Attack

5 Snack Ideas That Will Save Your Trip And Get You Through Vegan Deserts 

I have been through this many times. Hours on the highway, 50 miles to go until the next city. And suddenly I am starting to feel a bit peckish. Knowing that our cooler is empty, I look over to my boyfriend and he glances back at me. Yup. He feels it it, too. Shit.

And then we see it. Our salvation: A truck stop! Whohoo! … We stop and joyfully get off the car – Expecting to get a yummy treat and maybe even a warming soy latte!

… But wait.

Just when we walk in we remember the fact, that we are in the middle of no-mans-land. Where asking for plant-based alternatives for cheesy omelettes or pus-free coffee (in less drastic words, of course) would cause nothing but irritation and incredulous head-shaking.

Just to be sure – because at this point we are really hungry/hangry – we check the little diner´s menu and the shops storage shelves twice. We leave with a pack of Oreos and two cups of black coffee. This is going to be a long trip.

Does this sound familiar to you?!? Welcome to the club.

Learn From My Mistakes – Pack Your Snacks

Traveling as a vegan can be tough – Let me make it a lot easier for you by showing you what to take on a long-hour car, train or bus ride.

This is what works for me!

The Classic: Nuts And Dried Fruits

Cant ever go wrong with a mix of nuts and dried fruits in your bag! Not only do they get you through an afternoon low – when you’re on the go- raw almonds, dried apples, dried apricots, raw walnuts, roasted soy beans and whole dried cranberries, add a nutrient boost to your journey. Each serving delivers heart-healthy fats, fiber, and protein.

The Obvious: Fresh Fruit

The natural sugars in fruits can satisfy the cravings of your sweet tooth without negatively impacting your health; so it’s a great idea to always have healthy fruit snacks on hand to keep you satiated when the next snack attack hits.

I love to take bananas, apples, oranges, watermelon, cherries or any other fruit!

The Treat: Snack Bars And Bliss Balls

As a quintessential option for any traveler, granola bars provide a wholesome source of energy in one compact and tasty treat. As a quickly homemade alternative I love to take Chia Coconut Bars and Maca infused Raw Cocoa Bliss Balls. I prepare them a day or two before the trip and don´t need to worry about starving on the road 😉

The Vitamin Bomb: Smoothies

No easier way to stay fit and healthy on the road then by getting in those greens with a delicious fruits and veggie blend! Big plus: Smoothies naturally contain lots of water and will keep you hydrated. Blend your smoothie in the morning, fill it in a bottle and you are set. No blender on hand? Don’t worry! Most supermarket are selling ready made smoothies for you to grab on the go!

Pro Tip: If you are a frequent traveler (or if you want to be) think about stocking your pantry with a “go away” box filled with nutritious snack options. Restock as necessary and you’ll never be without choices when it’s time to travel.
