Healthy Meals for Truckers

Truckers have limited food options during their travels. This makes it harder for them to maintain a healthy diet throughout the day. Many truckers develop health problems like obesity, heart diseases hypertension or diabetes due to poor eating habits. We know it is difficult to maintain a healthy diet on the go, but you can eat healthier during your trucking trips by making the right food choices. We have a list of healthy meals that you can enjoy as a trucker and keep yourself healthy.

It is important to have  healthier alternatives and the best way to prepare a healthy dinner is to eat food prepared in a slow cooker. There are two options, a traditional 12-volt, or an AC power slow cooker. Following are some of the things you can make for dinner with them:

·         BBQ

·         Beef stew

Know that you need a high protein, complex carbohydrate meal in the morning. Always have a small snack, such as hummus and vegetables or something light and nutritious.
