Default Re: wfpb road trip snacks?

whole foods plant based


I'm thinking . . .

ETA: (I really loathe snacks.)

Ok, so you'll be driving? Are you breaking your trip into 2 days or doing it in one? If that were us, I'd feed everyone a huge breakfast. Pack a sandwich or wrap + fruit for lunch. Then I'd put split pea or lentil soup in the Thermos for dinner. I'm lousy with snacks so I'd probably have Kind bars or fig bars (both from Costco) or mandarin oranges.

I heard of a sandwich the other day that would probably travel sort of well, cooler-wise. In the food processor, mix a can of garbanzo beans (or 1.5 cup cooked) + 1 avocado. I'd probably add garlic or herbs. Spread that on bread & top with veggies. (sprouts, spinach, tomato, cucumber, mushroom, red onion, whatever) Or maybe a wrap with hummus, veggies, olives & sunflower seeds.

We do Thermos split pea or lentil soup on most of our trips. I cook it in the slow cooker overnight, then put in the Thermoses in the morning. Bean soups stay hot for 8-10 hours. And it's super easy on me in the morning.

On the way back, I am no help.
