With the wind in your hair and gas in your tank, may your summer travel adventures take you far and away - but don't forget the snacks!
To stave off the age-old question, "are we there yet??", be sure to arm yourself with snacking nourishment for the entire family. Gather together these 7 tasty and nutritious on-the-go options so that all you'll need is a great playlist to be ready to rock and roll.
1. Rind Snacks
Dried fruit just stepped up its game. From Tangy Kiwi and Bittersweet Oranges to Pineapple and Sweet Persimmon, Rind Snacks focuses on the fiber and antioxidants from the entire fruit, not just what’s on the inside. A sweet but much healthier option when those candy cravings hit.
This is just about as versatile as it gets. Add your nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and chocolate to a bag. Shake it up and you are golden.
3. Noka Pouches
Skip the blender. Skip the refrigeration. Noka Pouches are smoothies on-the-go. With no added sugar and 5 grams of plant protein, you’ll be happy you brought these along.
4. Baby Bell Peppers
Crunchy and sweet, bell peppers are delicious on their own or with a side of hummus or guacamole.
5. Make Ahead Veggie Muffins
We love this vegan and gluten-free recipe from The Mostly Vegan. Using chickpea flour, broccoli, corn, bell pepper, zucchini, and spinach, you can have your dose of veggies and protein with you at all times.

6. Quinn Pretzels with Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
As much as we try to eat our fruits and vegetables, there is a need for a sweet and salty combo. Quinn Pretzels and Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips are guilt-free, so you can forgive yourself if you choose this over the baby bell peppers.
7. Partake Cookies (pretty sure you saw that coming)
We gotta be honest, we don't go very far without a box of our cookies nearby, especially on a road trip. Luckily, our cookies have 20-45% less sugar than the other guys for just the right amount of sweet to keep everyone happy and in their seats. Leaving soon? We got you. Free 2-day Shipping on Amazon!
Wishing you safe summer travels and snack success!
