PRIMAL STRIPS. "These are my vegetarian substitute for the road trip favorite, beef jerky. Much like the real thing, Primal Strips pack lots of flavor and protein -- just without the meat and mile-long ingredient list." - Sarah Levy

HOMEMADE TRAIL MIX. "It's my stomach's saving grace when I forget to plan ahead for road trip snacking. I just track down the nearest Whole Foods -- or any market with a good bulk bins section -- and throw together a mix of nuts (for satiety) with a bit of dried fruit (for a little sweet!)" - Sarah Levy

APPLES. "My go-to fruit because they're sturdy and relatively mess-free (Ever try eating an orange or peach in public? Not pretty), and filling, too." - Sarah Levy.

KASHI GO LEAN CRUNCHY BARS. "The Chocolate Caramel is my favorite; these are sweet and crunch, and each bar provides 8 grams of protein, making them surprisingly hearty for a 150-calorie snack." - Melissa Davison

NUTS. "Full of healthy fats that keep you full for a long time, nuts are perfect for travel and so easy to transport. I pack small Ziplocks with cashews so I can have a pre-portioned snack to hold me over until the next meal." - Dori Manela

CEREAL. "Individual bags of cereal are a great way to satisfy my need to munch while I am traveling; I just make sure to pack only one per serving per bag to make sure portions stay in control." - Melissa Davison
