Raise your hand if dinner is your favorite part of the day. My family always enjoys a hefty meal at the end of the day because we’re starving and need some of the calories we burned put back into our bodies. When we travel, I try and plan road trip dinner ideas that are filling. Eating out, while on the road, is always an option, but it’s just not as healthy. Here are some of my favorite road trip dinner ideas!
This is one of our favorite meals for the road. Before we leave, I’ll grill some chicken and put it in a storage container that will help keep the heat. We whip out the buns, tomatoes, lettuce, and condiments to make a yummy meal. I serve it with chips and a side of veggies or fruits. Total yum!
Why not have Mexican food while on the go? I gather everything and put it in separate baggies, and then we eat it over a taco bowl. I love this meal idea because you can eat it cold, and it doesn’t take long to prepare.
Instead of giving your money to a franchise, make your own homemade subs on the go. Grab your favorite lunch meats, cheeses, and toppings and you’ll have a yummy dinner waiting for you!
Hefty Dinner Salad
You can pre-make dinner salads to be delicious, even on the road. Add items like boiled eggs, tomatoes, diced chicken, and whatever else you love. Bring a small bottle of your family’s favorite dressing and you’ll have a delicious road trip dinner.
When it comes to dinner ideas for your road trip, go with the meals that your family loves the most. I always pack a few sides, so there’s a little bit of variety along the way!
