Over-the-road truckers have easy access to typical convenience foods. While some truck stops and truck-accessible food stores are making valiant efforts to improve their healthy food selections, many still offer only what is fried, packaged, and poor in nutritional balance.
Truckers can help themselves make healthy choices by packing their cabs with healthy snacks and meals. It is easier to make healthy decisions once a week at a grocery store than it is when you are tired and at the end of a long shift.
If you have healthy food on-hand in your truck, you will satisfy your hunger with a sensible option instead of falling for temptation at a convenience store the next time you are hungry. Planning your on-road meals and buying in bulk can also save considerable money.
