10 Best Snacks for a Road Trip


Wrap It Up

Sandwiches can be a quick and easy way to keep hunger at bay while adding some good protein and hearty grains to your daily nutrition. Some may need to be stored in a cooler, such as wraps made with lean meats and cheese or a mini-pita sandwich stuffed with hummus and raw vegetables, but other options such as peanut butter (or any other nut butter) and jelly on whole grain bread can be kept at room temperature.
