While road trips are fun, they can be exhausting and literally long. Packing food for road trips can be difficult for various reasons. You don't want to make yourself queasy by eating the wrong kind of food. So, whether you are booking a car rental service in Menorca or driving your own wheels, our easy food packing tips for car drives will make your road trip much easier.

Food Packing Tips for Car Drive

You cannot carry food that's hard for digestion and make you nauseous, have to get all your food together in as little space as possible and make sure your packed food doesn't spoil quickly. Being in the business of car hire in Menorca for years, we have come across many road trippers and car campers. We questioned a few of them and came up with this great list of food packing tips.

Cold Food Pack

There are several healthy snacks you pack for a road trip. Pack foods that can safely be frozen, at least for a couple of days. These include yogurt, thepla, salami and sausages, cheese macaroni, salads, club sandwiches, cheese, soft drinks, fruits and nuts, butter, and bread. Frozen food will keep the non-freezable foods cold. Also, carry jam, jelly, and cheese spreads.

Note:  Remember to pack wet/fresh foods separately from dry foods. Cold foods can create condensation, which can spoil dry foods.

Tasty Snacks That You Can Safely Pack for Your Car Trips

Fruits, Nuts, and Seeds

They are power-charged with nutrients, light to carry, and lighter on the stomach. Make sure you pack fruits that are yet-to-ripe and less messy to eat, like bananas, apples, grapes, and pears. Dry fruits and nuts will keep you fueled for the long journey. You can munch them even while driving the car.

Fox Nuts or Makhanas

Fox nuts are extremely nutritious and packed with amazing flavors. They are also gluten-free and filling. You can roast them and store them in an airtight container for a tasty snack. Kids love them too.

Muffins and Sandwiches

Sandwiches have been our greatest travel companion. They are healthy, satisfying, and easy to make and pack. Cheese, vegetable club, chutney, salami, peanut butter + jam sandwiches go well with car drives.

Make healthy versions of muffins and pack them for you and your friends. If you want, ditch the sweet version and go for a savory variety of muffins made from chicken.

Protein bars and energy balls

For a hiking and camping road trip, these energy-rich snacks will be a savior in the long run. They are also quite hassle-free to carry in your pockets.

Boiled Eggs

Eggs are a complete source of nutrition. They are rich in protein, delicious, and will keep you satiated for many, many hours. They don’t get spoilt easily. You can carry boiled eggs for your trip or store raw eggs in foam boxes.

Other Dry Foods to Pack

Salt and pepper shakers, peanut butter, jam & jelly, cooking spray, pickle, olive oil, honey, and basic seasonings can be carried for your camping cooking.

Master the Art of Packing Food in Layers

Always have a basic meal plan in place for your camping trip. Such as the time of your breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Pack your food in layers based on the schedule so you can easily access the food you’ll have first.

Packing foods separately in small quantities is always a good idea to avoid wasting food and limit the chance of contaminating food.

How to layer food?

Bottom Layer: ice, drinks, butter, chocolates, and marshmallows.

Middle Layer: Cheese, paneer, milk, cold cuts, sauces, dips, and spreads.

Top Layer:Bread, sandwiches, tortillas, cold salad, pre-cooked pasta, boiled eggs, etc.

Pack the Right Way

The food packing container matters. You should store snacks in airtight containers and keep them at arm's reach in the car so that you needn't have to dig through the coolers. Make sure the containers are of good quality. Sandwiches should be packed in butter paper or cling film. Wrap each food item separately to avoid mess. Carry a lot of ice cubes and refill your icebox whenever you pass a store.
