What Can I Do to Eat Healthy on a Road Trip?

Rather than planning out the fast-food restaurants you are going to stop at on the way to your destination, pack healthy lunches and snacks in a cooler that you can take with you on the road. Then, when it comes to your rest stop breaks, you can have a picnic and enjoy time outside stretching your legs and throwing a frisbee before getting back in the car for another stretch of the drive.
