Our Road trip to NC over 2,500 miles away is going to be the longest we have ever driven. Trying to stick with our clean eating habits on the road always give us anxiety and this road trip is no different. We don’t want to settle for regular cheap fast food just because we are on the road. I don’t want to have the road be our excuse. At the end of our trip we want to feel good that we ate healthy food and our bodies feel strong from traveling so many miles.
Being that we will be on the road car camping for most of the days we cannot pack an entire weeks of meals in our car. We can pack some essentials and a small stove to cook some simple food but for the most part we have to live day by day. Our go to homemade foods like date rolls will be a must and they don't need to be on ice. We stocked up on some non perishable items from Thrive Market. Which has discounted healthy real food to buy on-line. Our usual staples are Epic beef jerky bars and Bearded Brothers Bars to last throughout the trip. Another easy food item that we will be making is sandwich wraps. Thrive Market has these organic, gluten free, paleo wraps called Wrawps that don't need to be refrigerated. These work really well on the go and they taste great. Planning our route and where to stay the night was really based on wanting to see different areas of the U.S. and also based on what healthy grocery stores are nearby along the way. Luckily there is like ten different Whole Foods grocery stores that we will be passing by during our entire trip. Whole Foods was essential on planning our trip around because we know we can have real food instead of fast food.
Hopefully by planning our route, meal plan and doing a little research prior we can arrive at our destination feeling healthy and strong from our epic road trip to NC.
