Good tips. I do those things when I have time to plan ahead, but sometimes (like today) we need to drive a distance unexpectedly, for medical attention (we live on a farm - far, far away). We keep a box of graham crackers, peanut butter & a knife - & bottles of water - in the car almost all the time. That has kept us fed for breakfast or lunch (literally "on" the road as I make them up & feed Jim as he is driving) & saved us from grabbing a quickie burger from a fast-food place.
With a little more time to gather food, a can of pork & beans (or a can of sardines) & one of stewed tomatoes - sustenance, eaten cold, from the cans. Canned fruit (no sugar, in juice) for dessert. We've considered keeping a closed box with these basic ingredients in the car for instant emergency food.
With more planning/fixing time I cut raw veggies & pack in plastic bag - fresh fruit - sandwiches (preferably with home-baked bread - have homegrown chicken & in summer have fresh veggies from garden) - hardboiled eggs (yes, from our chickens) - sometimes even hot or cold leftovers from last night's meal planned for the occasion.
