The midday meal provides a great chance for you to get out of your cab and stretch your legs. However, eating out all the time while on the road is hard on your wallet and your waistline! If you take advantage of a cooler or an in-cab refrigerator, you can provide yourself an easy, healthy meal in less time and cost than you might think! Here are some of our favorites:
Pre-cut fruits and veggies
Just because you are on the road without a knife to chop things doesn’t mean you can’t still get your “five-a-day!”
Protein keeps you full longer, meaning you won’t reach for a snack as quickly while on your next stretch of miles.
Single-serve salad kits
We all know salads are a healthy option, and this convenience makes it much easier to make it a lunchtime choice.
Rice and quinoa are the most commonly available options. Pair with your grilled meat and some veggies for a well-balanced lunch.
Nuts, energy bars, and hard boiled eggs
These are more easy options for protein.
Single serve, resealable olives
These provide a different option than your regular veggies.
Single-serve yogurt, milk, and string cheese
An easy way to get your calcium and additional protein.
