Road Trip Essentials

Making unhealthy choices while out on the road can really steer your energy levels in the wrong direction! Your health doesn’t have to go out the window though; it’s all about making simple swaps for healthier versions of popular road trip snacks that will satisfy your cravings and your body all the same.

Last Rep Grass Fed Beef Jerky
One of my favourite road trip or camping snacks is beef jerky because it’s a hearty, protein rich snack that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. I love the salty taste but could do without those nasty additives and preservatives. Last Rep’s Grass fed Beef jerky has uses only natural salt to preserve their beef. It even contains omega-3 and antioxidants!


 
Boomchickapop Sweet & Salty Organic Popcorn
I am a sucker for the sweet and salty combo… it’s pretty irresistible once you get started! I love Angie’s Organic popcorn because it’s a lighter snack that doesn’t leave you feeling tired and heavy. I love that it’s non-gmo and contains 0 trans fats or refined sugars.


 
Danielle’s Naturals Nut Clusters
I love this nut mix because of its slightly sweet cinnamon flavour. The combination of this potent spice and healthy fats from the nuts helps balance out blood sugar levels. If you’re like me and get a little queasy on long road trips, it’s important to keep your blood sugar levels stable and your hunger satiated.


 
Simply Protein Chips
When I’m craving a flavourful crunch I turn to Simply Protein Chips. They have the same texture of a Frito without the harmful fats or processed ingredients. With 15g of protein/ serving they are also a great option for balancing blood sugar and a great option if you know you’ll be skipping a meal.


 
As an avid snacker and comuter I always have some of these stashed in my car especially for those “hangry” moments in a traffic jam! All of the snacks Jule’s Wellness offers are not only wholesome but delicious. Shop all of them here
