National Fresh Fruit and Veggies Month: Best Produce for Travel

060916_FruitsVeggies

June is National Fresh Fruit and Veggies Month, and it’s the perfect time to become more aware of what you’re eating on the road. Enjoying fresh fruits and vegetables along your travels can seem difficult at first. Some produce ripens too¬†quickly and other fruits and veggies just aren’t the tasty snacks you want when living life on the road. The following fruit-and-vegetable-filled snacks are ones that you’ll start to crave on every journey.

Clementines

Clementines travel extremely well. You can stuff one in your pocket, a few in your backpack, or a bunch on the counter and snack on them as you please. They’re easy to peel and slightly hydrating for those long, dry days on the road. Keep your clementines in a container to keep them from getting smashed.

Cherry Tomatoes

Cherry tomatoes are a produce item you can pick up at nearly every farmers’ market across the country. Pull over and grab a box for snacking while you’re in the passenger seat. Even better, cherry tomatoes taste delicious at room temperature, so they don’t have to take up precious refrigerator space.

Miniature Bell Peppers

Bite-size bell peppers are one of the healthiest alternatives to chips that you can find. They taste delicious dipped in hummus or salad dressing for a flavorful and healthy snack on the go. Even better, the seeds inside the miniature bell peppers are unnoticeable when chomping them down.

Blueberries or Raspberries

Many travelers grab a box of strawberries at the farmers’ market for snacking, but the stems can make them messier than other berries. Opt for blueberries or raspberries, which come in smaller containers and can be enjoyed by the handful.
