I've been on the road alot recently for away games and tournaments. With this said, I eat well when I can, but for the most part, due to limited amounts of time, we just stop at gas stations. I bring a big bag of almonds whenever I go on the road and I'll buy jerky while im at a gas station. These get old real me. Any suggestions on what else to get if a gas station is the only option?

I stop at a supermarket and hit the deli/veggie section.
In and out as quickly as any gas station.
+ more options.

If you do dairy you can usually find string cheese in the coolers at the gas stations - basically a stick of low fat mozzarella. You might be able to find some lunch meat there, too - although it'll be high in sodium and not so high in quality, sliced turkey might be an option there.

Usually there's zone bars in the snack bar aisle.

A lot of them will carry some fruit also - the ones around me usually have apples, bananas, etc. Not going to be organic, but hey, nothing in there is going to be! ;)

Frequently you can find hard boiled eggs in the coolers too - that's usually what I head straight for. If they have a cold snack area - look for hard boiled eggs, fruit cups, salads, etc.

You might think about packing a quick cooler for yourself before you hit the road -- easy to throw in a package of cheese, package of meat, hard boil some eggs, toss some olives in a baggie, or baby carrots, etc. Nothing that takes a lot of time to make, but will make for a happier snack down the line.

take a big bag of dried fruit in your glove box.
also, make your own jerky,
much cheaper, you know whats going into it, and you can change the meat/spices for some variety
