Once again, we’ve partnered with Rosanna Inc. for some great summertime inspiration.

The summer season is upon us, and that means many of us will be hitting the road. Whether it is for a picnic around town, a trip down the coast, or a trek across the country, having the right food on hand is essential to making the trip more memorable.

Yes, it is charming to eat in local eateries when on the road, but for those times in between, don’t be tempted with the fast food restaurants that dot the interstate every few miles.

Redefine the meaning of road food by planning some truly delicious meals for when you hit the road this summertime. Grab yourself a picnic blanket and set it at the side of a stream, locate a picnic table in your favorite park, or save time, calories and beat the crowds at the fast food restaurants.

A key part of making the trip relaxing and memorable is to plan what you’ll eat and have it ready to go when hunger hits. Here are a few essentials to keep you fueled up while on the road.

Snacks 

Ditch the potato chips, candy bars, and bags of cookies, and plan to enjoy healthy snacks that will make you feeling more energized for a long trip. Grab some sliced fruit, power-packed snacks such as granola bars, trail mix and even homemade muffins.
