Snack mixes make a good choice for a road trip snack. They can be prepared to your liking and placed in pre-portioned snack bags for easy snacking on the road. We like to make our own snack mixes before we embark on any trip, with each family member making their own blend. Here’s a good snack mix recipe using Mrs. Dash seasoning blends. This snack mix is low in potassium and low in sodium. It’s a holiday themed snack mix, making it perfect for a holiday road trip, Christmas gifts, or for that tailgating road trip later in the season.
