Route 66 – Road Trip Food

(Cover photo borrowed from

We are getting closer and closer to my GRAND ADVENTURE driving down Route 66.  And something that every Road Trip needs is Road Trip Food!

When I was little, our family would go on road trips from Los Angeles to Nebraska or to Minnesota.  Being the youngest, I always got the middle of the back seat between my two brothers.  Mom always brought veggies and apples and oranges – but I always loved the green seedless grapes!  We only had a smallish cooler, and that was needed for the sandwich fixin’s, so our soda pop was usually warm.  But the fruit was tasty!


So the first and most important road trip food are the snack packs that God provided!  And they all seem to come in convenient serving sized packages.

Yes, I know, you may be thinking that this is the time to break out the candy and cookies!  No!  It’s not!  That sugary food will only cause you to get more tired as you drive and you’ll be less able to enjoy the wonderful world around you.  So reach for the natural energy boosters!

For me, I reached out to my blogging community and asked for more ideas of healthy snacks for the road.  Here are the suggestions – in no particular order.  The last is as tasty as the first!  Thanks to all my friends for providing these recipes!
