Road Trip!

Hello from the car on the way to North Carolina! Matt and I are heading down for his brother’s wedding this weekend, and I’m enjoying the fact that my phone is capable of being a mobile hot spot (aka providing internet for my laptop). Best thing ever!

We just stopped at Subway for a quick dinner on the road.


Subway is always my road trip fast food meal of choice. Tasty and pretty healthy, too! :) What’s your favorite place to get food on road trips?

I got a foot long turkey sub on honey oat and loaded it up with veggies — baby spinach, cucumber, green pepper, tomato, and pickles! Yum. Love that they offer baby spinach now.



I also got honey mustard sauce — I love theirs.


I ate about 3/4 and am saving the rest for later when I get hungry again ;) Being in the car makes me snacky and we’ve still got a good 4 hours or so to go!


Whenever I travel, I make sure to bring two things with me:

#1 — Lots of water. This water bottle comes everywhere with me!


And #2 — lots of snacks!


We already demolished some grapes, and I have an assortment of bars, clementines, peaches, almonds mixed with goji berries, mini packets of nut butter, etc. for the rest of the weekend :) It’s always better to be prepared! What are your must-haves when traveling?

Catch you guys tomorrow from North Carolina! :)


  1. 1

    I love Subway’s honey mustard, too. I have a long road trip in about two weeks from Dallas back up to Minneapolis, so I need to make sure I stock well with fruit, cheese sticks and trail mix. Not to say I won’t indulge in some ‘road trip’ grub though. :)

  2. 2

    I haven’t had subway in a while because I always consider it chain fast food. You’ve proven me wrong :)

  3. 3

    Mmm! I love subway! Have fun in NC! :)

  4. 4

    Definitely trail mix! And lots of fruit and bars. Perfect car ride fuel. Have a safe trip.

  5. 5

    Safe travels!!
    I too always load the car to the brim with snacks, nuts and fruit etc when travelling!!!!

  6. 6

    Subway is also one of my fav road trip fast food joints. I also love chick-a-fil. I always keep plently of snacks on hand: apples, oranges, nuts, kashi bar, fiber one bars, etc

  7. 7

    I always bring lots of water, some fruit and something crunchy to snack on. And I know exactly where the Panera is off the freeway in Atlanta, which I always hit on my road trips from Nashville to Florida right at lunchtime! But sometimes I give in and go to Chick Fil A instead. Mmm…chicken sandwich. :)

  8. 8

    I just did a post on my road trip must-haves! Apples, bananas, nuts and dried fruit, Fruition or Larabars, dry cereal, etc etc and always water! I’m really serious about my road trip AND movie theater snacks. :)

  9. 9

    I’m always driving, so I pack snacks entirely based on 2 things: 1) can it be eaten safely with one hand? and 2) how likely is it that I’ll stay clean throughout?

    Happy trails!

  10. 10

    I’ve got a list of power snacks and they include:
    – clif mountain mix bar
    – luna protein cookie dough bar
    – clementine oranges
    – dried cranberries

  11. 11

    I know what you mean about eating snacks on raod trips! I get bored so I think that is half the reason I feel snacky. Subway is my go to spot on the road.. beats all the fast food joints nutritionally and I love that you can tailor your sandwich to your liking.

  12. 12

    I have this weird mental association of road trip = peanut m&ms. Not the healthiest choice :) lol

  13. 13

    Subway’s the best! I hope they will have baby spinash here too!

    I’m going on a road trip today and for me, it’s always snacky snacky. Lots of water, some kind of crunch (pop chips or pita chips). Anything that I can munch on for a long time, and with one hand only :)

  14. 14

    I always need a lot of snacks on the road– I get so hungry when I have to drive forever. Subway is definitely one of the best places to stop and get a quick, veggie filled meal. And lots of water for sure!

  15. 15

    When I travel I always treat myself to a special coffee and a magazine. Makes all the waiting and sitting a bit more fun :)

  16. 16

    Subway is definitely the best road trip grub!

    My go-to travel snacks are Luna bars, peanuts and almonds, carrots, apples and Laughing Cow cheese wedges! Gotta have sweet, salty, crunchy, and mushy! :-)

  17. 17

    I love to eat Subway when I’m out on the road too! I also like to bring beef jerky, almonds, luna bars and apples ( the luna bars and apples are usually for breakfast the next day when we are at a hotel).

  18. 18

    have a great trip miss anne! and you’ll be in one of my most favorite states…. LOVE NC! and love YOU :) xo

  19. 19

    Subway is, indeed, a great choice… But you left out coffee!

    Have fun in the Tarheel State!

  20. 20

    I love subway when I am not on a road trip! Also, put in as many veggies as it will hold, all except any type of HOT peppers

  21. 21

    Love your top in the first photo! I haven’t tried that dressing at Subway before (been years since I’ve been to a Subway also), will have to remember to try it if/when I go soon!
