It is not always easy to maintain good eating habits while traveling. You rarely have the time or utensils to cook at home. At the campsite, or between two hotels, the priority is rarely to make good food, so we end up improvising and giving in to the ease of ordering pizzas. And yet, there are solutions to eat well on a trip and without spending too much!

Here are some tips and ideas on how to make travel recipes easy and quick to prepare healthy make ahead meals for road trip.

Easy Travel Recipes for Road Trips

1. Smoked Salmon Sandwich with Cream Cheese

Sunday road trip sandwiches with smoked salmon and fromage frais. This Sunday evening sandwich recipe could perfectly well be done on holiday for the good reason that it is only the assembly kitchen and that it does not require any material or preliminary preparation. Just choose a smoked salmon of good quality (Red or organic label is much better). You can serve it for an aperitif or prepare several for a quick lunch.

2. Peach and Tomato Salad

The tomato salad is the most practical salad when you are on a trip, and if it is also the tomato season it is one of the best recipes for travelling. It is ideal because it is basically simple and is one of those easy recipes when travelling. With tomatoes cut into quarters, a bit of salt and seasoning, a drizzle of oil, the one that falls under the hand, vinegar and the toughest stains are now behind us.

After all, everything is about pleasure and opportunities! Here, some peaches and herbs are not far away. Besides many other associations are possible.
