Hunger can strike at any time and any place. This is especially dangerous when you are on the road for a long time because your only source of food is most likely a gas station.

While you can’t expect a menu like one at a 4-star restaurant, you shouldn’t expect nothing but horrible nutrition options either. Unfortunately, most of the time, this is exactly what you get.

Gas stations are known for their junk food. You walk in and suddenly you find yourself in a wonderland of healthy diet-sabotaging foods. They look good, though, making them very difficult to resist. It’s hard to stay strong and fight the urge, but you absolutely should.

What most of the deliciously wrapped snacks contain as ingredients may shock you. Your body will thank you in the long run for not poisoning it with Slurpees, mini powdered donuts or even pre-packaged sandwiches.

Put simply simply, just fill up the tank, get a few bottles of water for the road, and find another place to eat.
