Tasty and healthy snacks are hard to find on the road, but often times food craving hits an all-time high when traveling. So, what is the best way to fulfill these cravings? There are plenty of snacking options like fries, burgers, and chips on your journey, but they are not always the best choice for your health. We recommend that you keep your RV refrigerator stocked with the suggested healthy snacking options:
We all know that ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ Considering, why not fill your fruit basket with ripe and juicy Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Macintosh apples? Try this tasty and delicious snack while enjoying a spectacular view of the countryside or while watching your favorite show. Besides serving as a yummy delight, the fruit is packed with essential nutrients, a good 90-110 calories for each apple and is an ideal source of soluble fibers.
How about mixed nuts like almonds and walnuts to boost your energy levels while traveling? Packed with unsaturated fats, magnesium, and calories, these healthy and tasty nuts keep you going after a day of hiking.
Raisins contain low sodium, boost your energy, and are fat free. Eat a handful of dried fruit when you are hungry or want to gain instant energy after some outdoor adventure. Raisins are not only packed with essential nutrients like B vitamins, potassium, and iron, but also contain a high amount of calories. Every 100 grams of raisins contains 249 calories, providing more minerals, fiber, poly-phenol antioxidants, and vitamins than fresh picked grapes from a vineyard.
If you are looking for a lip-smacking snack, eat dried mangoes. Believe it or not, these are a healthier option than fresh, ripe mangoes. One-third cup of dried mangoes gives you only 160 calories. Besides containing fewer calories, this dried fruit provides you with the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs. So, stock your RV with natural, healthy, and unsweetened dried mangoes.
Get your fill of healthy snacks while traveling in your motor home. Stay active and energized. Curb your hunger pains without having to worry about gaining weight.
