Between reunions with old friends and gatherings with the extended family, Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season can mean a lot of miles logged in the family car. Road trips can be a fun way to bond with your family and see some sights while on the way to your destination, but they can also disrupt a healthy routine. Before you fall into a greasy fast food rut while you're on the road, take a few minutes before you leave to prepare delicious snacks that will not only be healthy but are also easy to deal with while you're eating on the go.
- Celery sticks. Celery does double duty by filling you up while helping you stay hydrated during the long hours in the car.
- Homemade trail mix. It's easy to make your own trail mix - not to mention healthier than the store-bought stuff - and it'll help keep you full and energized on the road. Make sure to buy unsalted peanuts and dried fruit without added sugar, and try one of these healthy homemade trail mix combos.
