Preparation and strategy come into play everyday for truckers hauling goods. The same rules apply when it comes to planning nutritious meals and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Pack plenty of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, boiled eggs, greek yogurt, and protein bars. With a little bit of planning and the proper equipment you can cook on the road and have healthy, flavorful meals. Visit this link for some easy, microwave recipes.

Most importantly, load up on plenty of water. You will avoid dehydration and side effects such as fatigue and the urge to snack. To help you stay hydrated, keep an insulated water bottle and fill it up every time you make a stop.

Being a trucker doesn’t mean you have to eat poorly. Be prepared and you will be eating smart for the long haul!
