Eating Healthy At a Mobil Mart?

This is a brain tickler- try finding healthy filling food at a Mobil Mart. It makes little sense- people who drive generally have a slightly higher income. You are not taking the bus, right? And there is huge demand for healthy foods- organic is the highest growing food sector. I think they'd be focusing on this more if they were not making so much damn money gouging us on gas.

What we really ought to do is tax Exxon Mobil directly at the officer/executive level, and use the proceeds to give vouchers to lower income people to buy healthy food.

Challange...

Aside from the rant of the high gas prices, there's a good challenge here! The best thing I have found at gas station marts, like mobile, is water! Yes, I said it, good old fashion water! What are the benefits of water, well for starters, it keeps you hydrated, which will help in keeping a driver awake while on the road.
Second, water can be used as a temporary apatite suppressant until you can find a place on the road for decent food.
What else is decent enough at a gas station? Aside from water, the only thing I can think of is beef jerky. The lean stuff not the stuff laced with fat!
What you will want to get is the really dry hard to chew stuff though. Why you ask? Because it will be harder for you to chew which will cause two reactions. 1, your jaw muscles will get on heck of a workout and get really tired! 2, your brain will begin to work itself into thinking that you have eaten a lot, when you have only eaten a little… Wash it down with some good old fashion water, and the meat will expand in your stomach and cause you to feel full! Call it the beef Jerky and water diet…
That's about it!

Depends what gas station you stop at and what you consider healthy, but I can frequently find these things at the mini marts.

90-100 cal Special K and Balance Bars
Many brands of higher-cal granola bars (Nature Valley, Clif, PowerBar, etc.)
Oranges, apples and bananas
Unsalted nuts and sunflower seeds
Small packages of saltines or graham crackers
SF candy and gum

I've found microwavable tomato soup, natchos with black beans in them, and salsa.

I've tried to even stick with the fruit they offer, like bananas and apples but they are like the bottom of the barrel and so gross. I did find an Amy's burrito once - which wasn't bad. Better than anything else there. It would be great if they got on board with everyone else.

The yogurt seems relatively harmless - not great but not awful. It's the cheese and cracker stuff that gets me.

Sometimes they have teddy grahams (in small packages) that at least have some fiber...

Water's definitely a good choice.
Juice (as long as you don't drink too much of it.)
Occasionally some have string cheese...
Coffee (caffeine, but at least no calories if you don't splurge on the syrups and sugars--although 1 small creamer isn't terribly high in calories, it may have some trans fats...)
