Hunger can strike you at the oddest times. Very often you will find yourself driving on your way home from work, out doing errands or even just sitting in a traffic jam when hunger pangs suddenly spring upon you. You can hear your stomach growling and just wish you had something, anything that might help you get through this moment. The last thing you want to do is to stop at a store or convenience area and get something that you know you will regret eating in the first place. Luckily, you can plan ahead for just such an occasion. There are a number of great snacks that you can keep in your car so you have them handy for whenever you are anyone else needs something to tide them over.
• Mix it Up – In an ideal world there would be a small refrigerator in your car where you could keep fruits and vegetables that would stay fresh and be great for snacks. Unless you happen to be driving an RV every day, this is not going to happen. What you can do is the next best thing and have some type of trail mix or fruit mix that you can make on your own. You will want to use dried fruits for this and mix in some nuts and seeds that you really. Put it all in a zip bag for your glove compartment and you can just reach for some whenever you need it.
• Rice Cakes – Rice cakes have gotten a pretty bad rap over the years as basically being flavorless, tasteless puffs of air. The cakes have changed quite a bit since they first came around and now come with some great flavors and have very little in the way of calories. They are the perfect quick snack for you, particularly if you are just coming from the gym after a workout and want something to have before you get home.
• Tuna – More and more people have turned to keeping and eating little packs or pouches of tuna as q quick snack. Tuna is packed with protein so it is good for you and you can even get little packs with crackers if you like. Just remember to throw the pouch away right when you get somewhere so you do not return to your car with a fishy odor.
• Baby Food – While it may not be everyone’s first choice, baby food today is made from natural ingredients, has little in the way of calories and tastes good. One little jar of fruit or vegetables can be just what you need to help you get through the hunger.
You can keep some quick and easy snacks in your glove compartment or the center console of your car so you can access them whenever you might need them.
