2. A PB & J
Who Does Not Love a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich? Its every kids favorite lunch and doesn’t even need to be kept cool. Make it with whole-grain bread, an all-natural nut butter, and all-natural fruit spread like St. Dalfour® to up the health factor.

3. Shakeology® Packets
Want to take your Shakeology on the road? Just mix a single-serving Shakeology packet (available in Chocolate, Vanilla, Greenberry, Chocolate Vegan, and Tropical Strawberry) with water and shake! I always take my Shakeology cup, fill it with ice, and then later some of it has melted, then I just shake it up and enjoy my yummy shake!!

You might find the idea of taking eggs with you on the road a little odd, but hard-boiled eggs are great for a quick power-up. Plus, they’re loaded with B vitamins, which may help keep tempers cool on long trips.

5. Homemade Energy Bars

Deepen the flavor of nuts by roasting them with spices.
