It’s the holiday season, and for a lot of people, that means hitting the road to see relatives. What will you eat while you’re in the car? Junk food is often the go-to choice either out of boredom or convenience, but later you might regret that bag of chips, especially if you’re planning on a little holiday indulgence at your destination. The key to healthy eating while on the road is preparation! Here are some ways Juice Plus+ can help.
Have a Quick, Healthy Breakfast with Overnight Oats
Overnight oats make a quick, nutritious breakfast that you can eat before you set out or while en route (assuming you’re the passenger!). Assemble them the night before you leave, and you’ll be nourished in a jiffy. For extra nutrition in your overnight oats, include Complete by Juice Plus+ shake mix – try this Complete by Juice Plus+ Overnight Oats recipe from a Juice Plus+ customer:
Overnight Oats Recipe
Lindsey Wilson Gosser from Russell Springs, Kentucky
- 1/4 cup of old-fashioned oats
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 packet of Juice Plus+ Complete French Vanilla Shake Mix
Combine all ingredients in a mason jar the night before and let it sit in the fridge. Make sure to mix and shake well, then enjoy a healthy banana pudding breakfast!
If you’re staying in a motel along the way, you could bring the oats pre-mixed in individual containers without the liquid. Add the liquid right before bedtime and voila! No need to scour the pancake house menu for something healthy — breakfast is ready when you wake up.
Snack Right, with Juice Plus Chewables and Complete by Juice Plus+ Bars
Vending machine trail mix may look healthy, but frequently it’s loaded up with candy and dried fruit. Candy obviously has no place in a healthy snack, but even dried fruit is often coated in added sugar.
Making your own trail mix is not only healthier, it’s fresher too. (After all, no one likes stale peanuts and rock-hard raisins.) Try this recipe for healthy trail mix and toss in Juice Plus+ chewables for added sweetness and nutrition!
Complete by Juice Plus+ Bars are another great option when you need something to nibble in the car. The Dark Chocolate & Fig and Tart Cherry & Honey flavors hit the spot, and with 5-10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and 170-180 calories, they’re a much better choice than a candy bar!
