How many of you eat while you are driving? How many of you actually take the time to get out and eat somewhere? I know many of you probably just rough it and eat while you are driving.. but is that healthy?

More drivers would feel a heck of a lot brtter if they stay with light fruit and vegtable meals during the day.Its been proven that these food when eaten alone pass right through your stomach and are turned to instant energy.


Things that pass right through your stomach are not good food for the road. :D:D:D

By that I meant to say the energy is absorbed primarily in the intestines. Good eye though and thank for the smile.

I knew what you meant I was just having some fun. Just about every trucker I know has some story about have foods that want to "leave the stomach" at very bad times while on the road. You know, stuck in the middle of a chicago back up and then "oh no" you feel your belly rumble.

Hubby stops and gets food to eat in the truck. I'd complain but it's better than living on reeses peanut butter cups. At least its kinda sorta "food".

Oh no, Oh no you didn't, Don't even go there against the King of Foods, the peanut butter cup!!!

All Hail the mighty Reese !!! All Hail the mighty Reese !!! All Hail the mighty Reese !!!

You don't know how much I miss them. I am diabetic now, and I swear I will take the name of REESE in vain again.

:p:p:p:p

I stay out 2-3 weeks at a time, so packing lunches isn't an option. I keep soups, breakfast bars, and other types of food in the truck with me though.

Canned food with a pull tab work great for me. Today will be two Chef Boyardee beef ravioli. YUM!

My wife thinks it is sick that I eat it right out of the can and don't warm it up.

    I have gotten to the point where my early morning meals start with a meal replacement shake (that I keep made in the fridge), then a couple hours later, a granola type bar. From there, I will usually get a nice "healthy" meal in a truck stop, followed by another shake later in the day, then a small soup.

    Basically, about 5 very small meals, and 1 decent sized meal, for a total of 6 throughout the course of a day. That keeps me from turning into a blimp, and also keeps me from getting hungry throghout the day.

    Oh, and having all of this food in the truck is nice on a day like today when I have been stuck at the shipper for almost 11 hours. Detention time pays well, but damn it's boring.
