On a Road Trip

Highway rest stops and smart food choices aren't usually found in the same sentence, but "a lot of convenience stores now stock some decent options," says La Puma. This ubiquitous string cheese isn't starchy, has almost zero sugar, and provides a modest amount of protein and healthy fat.

Energy bars are easy to travel with, but quality is key. The main ingredient should be an ancient grain, and skip those with artificial sweeteners or added vitamins and minerals. With just 100 calories and 5 grams of sugar—plus 1000 milligrams of omega-3, 4 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of protein—these small bars pack big benefits. The new dark chocolate cherry and chocolate peanut butter flavors satisfy a sweet tooth, too.
