I’m leaving on a road trip to Los Angeles tomorrow and I can’t wait! For weeks I’ve been dreaming of taking in the views at Big Sur, listening to my favorite podcasts in the car, and trying all the amazing food LA has to offer.
I’m especially looking forwards to eating at Pressed Juicery (the freeze!!), Cafe Gratitude, and True Food Kitchen. I’ve been drooling over their food on Instagram for months and I’m so excited I’ll finally get to try it.
But until I get to the health food wonderland that is LA, I have to get through about 8 hours in the car, which means I’m going to be packing plenty of snacks.
I love finding creative solutions to the challenges of eating healthy on the road, so I see traveling as an opportunity to expand my healthy eating horizons. Some of my favorite snacks are sturdy fresh fruit (ex. apples, bananas, chopped melon), natural energy bars (KIND and Larabar are my favorites), and trail mix.
However, I find that classic trail mix can get sort of boring, so I prefer making my own. This mix combines salty, sweet, and crunchy with coconut chips, almonds, and cereal. I love that the sweetness in this trail mix comes from Bare Snacks coconut chips because while I love chocolate I find it can get very messy and melty on road trips.
This trail mix is fresh, fun, and filling, which, in my opinion, are essentials for a good on-the-go snack. The mix is beyond easy, made with incredibly simple ingredients, and totally customizable. If you try it, be sure to share with me on Instagram!
- ½ cup Bare Snacks original coconut chips
- ½ cup roasted, lightly salted almonds
- 1 cup Os cereal (eg. Cheerios)
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Combine ingredients in medium mixing bowl and stir gently until ingredients are evenly mixed.
I received complimentary samples of Bare Snacks chips for review, but was not otherwise compensated for this post, and, of course, all opinions are my own.
