My go to road trip food is homemade beef jerky, deviled eggs, cashew butter stuffed celery and a thermos of really good coffee or cold pressed coffee concentrate depending on the weather.
Hey, Susan W, how about posting your recipe for homemade beef jerky?
I will gather my notes and do that CBC. I rarely make it the same way twice, but I have a current favorite combo.
I like the spicy summer rolls here: http://www.sproutedkitchen.com/home/2013/4/9/spicy-lentil-summer-rolls-travel-snacks.html
It doesn't get better than Wheat Thins and various cheese fillings. If you want to fling healthy eating to the wind, I'm also partial to Cheese Doodles, although the cheese dust makes a mess of the steering wheel.
Good coffee of course ..., but I also like fruit skewers , grapes melon pineapple, crackers and cheese and cherry tomato skewers , easy to eat and no mess, that way you cover sweet and salty cravings
I always pack fresh vegetables that are easy to snack on (raw snap peas, carrots, etc.) because I get sick of eating just snack-y type stuff, especially when stuck in a car. Also I like things that fill you up (and taste good!) but aren't messy: roasted chickpeas are awesome (these ones! https://food52.com/provisions...) and dried fruit that isn't sticky to eat (orange crisps - this company makes other dehydrated crunchy fruit and is in a lot of gourmet food shops now: https://food52.com/provisions...)
