Living a healthy lifestyle and consuming highly nutritious foods on a regular basis can be a real challenge for those who spend the majority of their time on the road driving a truck. The stress of irregular work hours and the difficulty of finding fresh, healthy food can make meal prep for truck drivers a challenge. However, there is a way to simplify truckers life by making some easy food preps for the week. Fresh Fruit Much like fresh vegetables, fresh fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges, and grapes can be tasty and nutritious at the same time. Consuming fruits regularly is a great way to stay hydrated and obtain the important vitamins and nutrients your body needs to stay energized and healthy. Having bananas, oranges, apples in your truck fridge is always a great idea. Greek Yogurt The nutritional value of many types of yogurts can be questionable, but Greek yogurt is high in protein and the most important fact of all it tastes great. Most brands of Greek yogurt contain anywhere from eight to 12 grams of protein, as well as considerable levels of calcium and vitamin D. The cultures contained in yogurt have also been known to aid in digestive health and regularity. Protein Bars Nuts and Seeds Raw nuts and seeds such as almonds, cashews, and sunflower seeds are high in protein, fiber, and “good” unsaturated fats. Many of them also contain omega-3 fatty acids, which can lower your chances of heart problems, as well as vitamin E, which can help reduce the amount of plaque that accumulates in your arteries. Roasted seeds are known to be an excellent source of zinc, which has been proven to be beneficial for men’s health.To make meal preparation easier, try packing items that store well before your trip so you don’t have to keep running to the store at the truck stops.
