Road trip food, HELP

My family is going on a road trip, on a pretty small budget. We wont' be able to cook in the hotel so we will bring a cooler, and I don't want to eat out if we don't have to. Any ideas? These are mine so far-
PB&J
fruits and veggies chopped up/sliced
AND THAT'S IT! lol
I try to feed my family pretty healthy even though I fail all the time. Thanks ladies~

  • you could buy cupped fruit, nutrigrain bars, canned chicken/tuna for salads, trail mix and (since it is vacation) cups of easy mac.

    You could make: A HUGE tupperware container of fresh cut fruit, make your own granola bars, create your own trail mix w/ nuts, dried fruit and cereal and cook and shred chicken to make BBQ,Thai wraps and salads with.

  • Put some lunch eat in the cooler and bring along a loaf of bread. Make sandwiches at the rest stop picnic areas so you have a little time to walk around and stretch. Grapes, apples and bananas are good to snack on, as are granola bars.
