As you hit the open road and make your way to your new home with one of the trusted interstate moving companies, you might start to feel hungry after a few hours behind the wheel. While you can always stop at a gas station or a roadside diner for something to eat, a better option is to pack your own food.
Apples and Bananas
Apples and bananas are a good option for road trips. Not only are they compact, not too messy and great for your health, but they also have several short-term benefits. Driving for hours on end can make you a little sleepy, especially on long excursions when you have to drive through the night. According to Fitness Magazine, apples and bananas are packed with antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber, which will give you additional energy so you can stay awake and stay alert.
If you want something to help stimulate you, green tea is always a good option. Sugary sodas with caffeine aren't only bad for your teeth, but their excessive sugar can make you crash. You may want to brew some green tea before you leave. If you prefer cold drinks put it in a thermos with ice. The tea has essential antioxidants and just the right amount of caffeine to keep you going. If you're worried about having too much caffeine you can simply steep your tea bag for a shorter period of time.
Almonds and Walnuts
These protein packed snacks can be kept by your seat in Tupperware or a bag. Salt them for flavor if you would like, but keep a bottle of water on hand if you do. Fitness magazine reports that almonds and walnuts have a lot of good fats, which will keep you full during your venture.
