Best Travel Snacks for a Ride
Make Your Own Road Mix
- 1 16 oz. jar of dry roasted, salted peanuts or mixed nuts

Mix ingredients in a large ziplock bag and separate into smaller bags. Carry the large ziplock in any baggage, and the smaller ones in a pocket or tank bag. This is a good energy booster that’s loaded with protein and good sugars to keep you going.

A Tried-and-True Classic
- 2 pounds beef top round, thinly sliced.
- 3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon paprika, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon honey, or more to taste
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- Combine and whisk soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, red pepper flakes, black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder in a medium-sized bowl. Add the beef to the bowl and turn it to make sure it’s completely coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let marinate in the fridge overnight.
- Preheat your oven to 175 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Place a wire rack over the foil.
- Put the beef on paper towels and toss out the rest of the marinade. Arrange the slices of beef in a single layer on the wire rack/ baking sheet.
- Bake the beef for about 3 or 4 hours, or until it’s dry and leathery. Let it cool and store in ziplock bags.
Now, this is the simplest beef jerky recipe if you don’t have a smoker or a dehydrator handy. Feel free to experiment with spices and methods, just be sure to let me know how it turns out. I’m always down for a new jerky recipe.
