Staying healthy as a commercial truck driver isn’t always easy. Many spend days on the road without going home. They often eat at truck stops, which isn’t always a healthy option.
However, there are ways to eat healthier while you are driving. Here are some more healthy snacks for the road.
Nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds can be a great snack for the road. It is best if you get the unsalted variety since that can make them unhealthy.
You can snack on a handful of almonds, soy nuts, walnuts, pecans, and sunflower seeds. Peanuts aren’t the best, but they are still a good choice when you are on the road.
Trail mix. Love nuts but you need more to your snack? Make your own trail mix with nuts, cranberries, chocolate chips, and anything else that would work well. However, it is important that you don’t add too many sweet things to it or your trail mix could lose some nutrition!
Cottage cheese. Even a small container of cottage cheese is filled with the protein that your body needs. If you don’t like cottage cheese alone, you can add some fruit, so you are more likely to eat it.
Protein bars and drinks. Most people don’t get enough protein so you might want to keep some protein bars and drinks handy. However, they aren’t all created equally, so it is important that you find ones that are filled with the best nutrition for your body.
If you have healthy snacks handy while you are on the road, you are less likely to stop and grab something else. You should keep nuts, cottage cheese, and even protein bars and drinks with you so that you can fill up on small snacks all day long!
