Like a truck, a body requires fuel, good fuel, to run properly. A constant diet of greasy fast food and sugary soda would soon add up to health issues for anybody, especially truck drivers who are seated in one place so much of the time.
As a new driver you will want to learn ways of not only eating healthy, but preparing your own healthy meals. It will save time & money, and will give you many more choices.
Any place you travel across this country, there is bound to be a WalMart, or supermarket, or even a well-stocked truck stop that you can visit to re-supply once a week or so.
With a little planning ahead, eating healthy on the road is really no harder than eating healthy at home. Most drivers will have at least a plug-in cooler in their truck to keep perishables cold, and there are many, many, healthy, non-perishable alternatives when it comes to meals.
Many drivers find ways to prepare their own meals in their vehicle. From simple things like sandwiches to full crockpot meals, there are tons of options to cook healthy, and save money on meals while on the road.
Small appliances that can be used in the truck include microwave ovens, hot plates, frying pans, almost anything that you would find in your average kitchen. For those so inclined, plenty of drivers will carry a portable grill on the road, and cook in the parking lots at truck stops. Kind of like camping, but a lot noisier and smelling like diesel.
