6 Healthy Snacks to Fill Up On at the Convenience Store, Lynne, Wisconsin

When you think about taking a road trip, you probably think of listening to your favorite music, seeing new sights, and the requisite binge on gas station junk food and snacks. While junk food is always readily available, you don’t have to settle for countless bags of potato chips or candy bars. In fact, there are a number of healthy snacks to indulge in at just about every gas station. Here are a few simple ways to fill yourself up without resorting to unhealthy options.

6 Healthy Snacks to Choose at a Gas Station

1. Fresh Fruit

SnacksAlmost every gas station has a basket of apples, bananas, oranges, and other fresh fruits perfect for snacking on in the car. Not only will you be able to satisfy your sweet tooth, but you’ll also receive a healthy dose of fiber, vitamins, and minerals not found in the junk food aisle.

2. Stevia-Sweetened Beverages

Whether you prefer juice drinks or caffeinated cola, it’s easy to avoid added sugars or artificial sweeteners. Simply look for beverages sweetened with stevia instead of sugar or aspartame. Stevia is an all-natural plant-based sweetener that won’t add calories to your drink. Best of all, it tastes great, and many major brands have started incorporating this sweetener into their lineup.

3. Yogurt

Rather than grabbing a milkshake at a drive-thru, pick up your favorite flavor of yogurt at the gas station. Even small cups are rich in protein and calcium, keeping you full without the sugar crash associated with ice cream and other sweet goodies.

4. Protein Bars

Protein bars are a great snack or meal replacement to keep handy on the road. Not only are there dozens of flavors to choose from, but they’re designed to sate your hunger and give you sustained energy for hours at a time. This way, you won’t have to resort to greasy roadside hamburger joints along your drive.

5. Nuts & Dried Fruit

Nuts pack a ton of protein and are a great snack to take with you on the road, but when you add dried fruit and turn it into trail mix, you’ll have a snack everyone is sure to love. Most convenience stores sell pre-made trail mix, but you can make it yourself by purchasing your favorite nuts and dried fruits and mixing them together in the car.

6. Popcorn

Popcorn is a heart-healthy whole grain and the perfect alternative to unhealthy potato chips. Just be sure to look for a low-sodium, low-fat option when browsing through a convenience store. That way, you’ll get all the health benefits of the whole grain without having to worry about high calorie counts.
