SHIFTING GEARS TO YOUR FUTURE

On The Road And Healthy

On the road and local truckers are often challenged when it comes to eating healthy. Fast food, diners and truck stops are often higher in calories, fat and sodium.

Food that are higher in fiber will help you to feel fuller for longer and can often be lower in calories and fat. Oatmeal and other high fiber breakfast cereals along with non-fat or low-fat milk and fresh fruits are quick and easy options that can be prepared while on the road.

Being well stocked with healthy snack choices reduces the need to make unhealthy stops at fast food places when hunger strikes. Be sure to keep foods that will travel well, like apples, oranges, nuts precut veggies and crackers.

There are many appliances available, for the cab, that make preparing your meals ahead of time simple and easy while on the road:

Slow cookers and mini slow cookers (with liners to make clean up a breeze)

Portable coolers

Lunchbox cookers

Mini fridge

A small roast, veggies and potatoes can be a very satisfying meal that cooks while you drive.

Another thing to watch, is your drink choices. Calories from beverages do little to curb your hunger.

Soft drinks. Sports drinks, and even juices can easily put you over your daily needs. Stick to water whenever possible to quench your thirst!
