How to eat healthy while travelling

You can be tempted to get your hands on a packet full of wafers or biscuits on a road trip. But try gorging on dry fruits or some packed veggies with a dip for the journey. All it takes is a little planning ahead, and you can easily avoid the convenience store staples like chips, soda and candy, which are little more than empty calories. Just as you would pack an overnight bag with your must-have items from home, plan your road trip snack-pack before you hit the highway.
