Road trip season will be here before we know it and being prepared is so important. I travel a lot and if I don’t prepare food in advance I find it almost impossible to eat healthy-ish while on the road. Although, some gas stations are getting better at offering things like fruits, vegetables, yogurt, etc.
To help us all prepare I’ve put together a list of my favorite road trip snacks.
The key here is preparation and portioning out food in advance.
Some snacks will require a small cooler (noted with a *), but I’ve tried to keep the list to as many foods as possible that can just be packed in a tote bag.

It’s going to take a little bit of work to stay on track, but it’s going to be worth it. So, without further ado, here are 25 Weight Watchers Road Trip Snacks Under 3 Freestyle Points each.
Point Calculation Note: WW has changed their program since these were calculated. Please calculate points according to your program.
SAVORY ROAD TRIP SNACKS – ZERO TO THREE WEIGHT WATCHERS FREESTYLE POINTS
1. Oven-Roasted Chili-Lime Chickpeas (adapted from MyFitnessPal) Preheat over 400 degrees. Drain a can of chickpeas and dry with a paper towel. In a bowl, spray with a couple pumps of vegetable oil and toss with 2 teaspoons of chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and zest of one lime. Bake for 30–45 minutes until chickpeas are crispy. THREE POINTS for 1/4 cup. IF you don’t roast them and eat them raw with the spices it’s ZERO POINTS.
2. Hard Boiled Eggs or Deviled Eggs*– If making deviled egg mix cooked yolks with 0% fat-free Greek yogurt, a dollop of mayonnaise, some mustard (deli style if you prefer), salt, pepper & paprika. Even though the light mayo has 1 point for 1 tablespoon I don’t count any points unless I eat ALL the eggs.
3. Good Thins Corn Crackers, 29 for 2 POINTS + 1 Laughing Cow Light Spreadable cheese*, can also top with sliced cherry tomatoes or broccoli to mix it up a bit. TOTAL: 3 POINTS

FRUITS & VEGETABLES ROAD TRIP SNACKS- ZERO to TWO WEIGHT WATCHERS FREESTYLE POINTS EACH
I couldn’t help myself. There are just so many options! I had to share some of my favorite fruits and vegetables and different ways to enjoy them. It’s easy to get tired of fruits and vegetables but there is no denying that zero point foods have a place in the Freestyle program. Fruits and vegetables beat a fast food burger every day of the week. Here are my favorites:
Note: The prepared fruits may have a bit of natural browning as it oxidizes. Avoid by spritzing with some lemon juice or wait to prepare until you are ready to eat the snack.
Apples-cut up in advance, toss in Ziploc, enjoy with 2 tablespoons of prepared PB2 (1 point)
Cherries-I live in northern Michigan where cherries are plentiful in the summer. This is one of our favorite road trip snacks.
Blueberries – Easy to eat while driving. Pre-rinse and store in a reusable container.
Cutie Oranges – Peel in advance so you don’t have to deal with that while you’re driving.
Applesauce cups and fruit cups (make sure zero calories, water packed) are hard to eat if driving but ok for passengers. ZERO POINTS
Carrots-I prefer whole carrots that I peel and cut up myself. I swear they are more flavorful, but it could all be in my head.
Grape Tomatoes – I never thought I would like eating tomatoes plain, but they are quickly becoming my favorite snack.
