So my family and I are taking a fairly long (8-10 hour) road trip this weekend. Plans for food involve carbs, carbs, and more carbs. Meals involve even more carbs (probably ice cream), since there's about zero Kosher food on the road.
I'd bring cheese and yogurt and other low-carb, high-protein goodies, but there's a catch--I get carsick.
I know it's ridiculous that I'm taking a car trip when I get carsick, but for the most part I can control it. Ironically, the best tools I have are mint gum, carbs, and keeping by BG under control. (The meds all either don't work for me or will put me to sleep for several days.) The three of us are splitting the drive because it's so long, but I get carsick even when I drive, so that isn't a good solution, either. To make matters worse, my BG is pretty volatile right now, because it's allergy season. And it'll probably be even crazier during the drive because we'll be sitting for so many hours.
Does anyone have any ideas for fairly BG-friendly foods that have carbs and can be transported during a long drive, preferably without a cooler (lack of space)? I know I'm asking something more or less impossible, but I wonder if anyone has any ideas.
