Having a snack attack? It’s quite common to crave snacks on a road trip — whether you are legitimately hungry of not. While there are plenty of not-so-healthy snacks to be found at roadside convenience stores, they are not always the best choice when it comes to staying healthy.

To satisfy those snack cravings and avoid that bag of chips or candy bar, the best practice is to stock your RV with simple, healthy snacks. Need some ideas? The following are some of delicious and healthy snacks perfect for RV travel.

Raisins

Raisins are fat free, low in sodium and provide instant energy as they are packed with many nutrients like potassium, B vitamins, and iron. When you feel hungry, simply have a handful of raisins to gain energy and curb the hunger pang instantly. One hundred grams of raisins has 249 calories, which provides more fiber, minerals, vitamins, and poly-phenol antioxidants than fresh grapes.

Apples

Be it Granny Smith,  Golden Delicious, or Macintosh, stock your RV with these nutrient dense and delicious snacks that only have about 90 to 110 calories per apple. Apples are a great source of soluble fiber as well.

Dried Mangos

Eating dried mangoes on-the-go provide as tasty and healthy snack. Dried mangoes are actually healthier (and less messy) then fresh mangoes as a one-third cup serving only contains 160 calories. In addition to the taste and lesser calories, you get minerals and vitamins. Be sure to look for natural, unsweetened dried mangos.

Granola

Granola is another high fiber option that regulates digestion, lowers cholesterol, increases energy, and tantalizes taste buds. It helps you feel full in minutes!

Blueberries

Considered one of the world’s healthiest snacks, blueberries are a must-have RV snack. Blueberries are low in calories and provide an anti-oxidant rich snack.

Mixed Nuts

A handful of mixed nut comprising walnuts and almonds provides energy and taste while traveling. They contains magnesium and unsaturated fats with plenty of calories to keep you going.

Banana Chips

Banana chips are a healthy snack rich in fiber and potassium. Do not eat banana chips regularly as they are high in saturated fat, but as a once or twice a weekly snack they are perfect.

Edamame Beans

Edamame beans are early harvested soy beans and are abundantly available in the United States. They are highly nutritional and one cup carries a perfect blend of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Make a soup of edamame beans and feel full for many hours while driving.

Celery and Peanut Butter

Greens are always good for your health, and when greens are combined with peanut butter, you get a filling healthy snack. Eat a plate full of celery and peanut butter to get minerals and vitamins while curbing hunger pangs without worrying about putting on weight.
