January 9, 2022Healthy Meals For Truck Drivers
As much as you know about a healthy diet, it’s always good to keep some things, for example this very post, at hand. Before we suggest what, you should eat to stay healthy, please consider investing in appliances like a cooler, slow cooker, lunch box or microwave. This will make eating healthy food on the road much easier.
Try these healthy breakfast items:
Whole-wheat toast with peanut butter
Egg whites (available in cartons for easy cooking)
Prime Breakfast Tip: Healthy breakfast should be made up of protein, complex carbs, calcium, and healthy fats. You don’t want anything high in sugar as it will lead to a crash later.
Reduced-fat string cheese
Hummus and veggies (celery, broccoli, cucumber, and carrots)
Unsalted mixed nuts
Tomato and avocado sandwich (tasty things to add: basil or lettuce)
Turkey wrap: whole-wheat tortilla, turkey, romaine lettuce, low-fat cheese, and mustard
Grilled chicken salad with low fat dressing
Veggie or turkey burger (hold the mayo, ketchup, and cheese, please!)
Prime Lunch Tip: Swap out unhealthy sauces and spreads like mayonnaise for healthy, flavorful ones like mashed avocado, mustard, hummus, or pesto.
Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies. This is the easiest one pot recipe ever. Hardly takes any effort at all.
Beef Stew makes a great dinner. You can enjoy it year-round.
Whole Roasted Chicken in your slow cooker is a recipe every trucker should try. It’s delicious and can keep you fuller for longer!
Ground Beef and Potatoes are amazing and will only take around 15 minutes to prepare!
Fat free ice cream or sorbet
Frozen grapes or strawberries
Frozen fruit bars/ice pops
Bon appétit! Enjoy your meal!
