Long distance drivers have a difficult time finding food that is different, yet isn’t all junk food. In order to eat better here are a few suggestions that might make meal time healthier and tastier.
The majority of the time long distance drivers spend driving on the Interstate, so stopping for an hour for each meal is out of the question, but one meal a day shouldn’t be totally disregarded. When you come into a town, try a buffet with a variety of foods to get some of the fruits and veggies that you need. Fast food does not have to be unhealthy. Picking up a hoagie means eating good lean meats and cheeses, and it is quick to get. If you must stop in a fast food place, stay away from the fried foods and have the grilled chicken or fish. Have a side salad or yogurt with a sandwich to counteract all the French Fries that you normally have and notice how good you feel. Also, have an Iced Tea instead of the usual soda to help you feel lighter.
By doing this you will feel less tired and weighed down, and when you get home you will have more energy to do things the things that you want to do.
