Healthy Eating Tips for Truckers!
All truckers worry about the same thing every couple years… how am I going to pass my Class A CDL DOT Physical? We tell ourselves the same thing every year… I am going to eat right this year. I am going to exercise this year… blah blah blah. And then comes the DOT Physical and we need blood pressure medication because we barely even pass the High Blood Pressure Test. Then come the questions about how do I sleep? Do I snore? Have I ever used a CPAP?
I just want to drive my truck. I do not want to worry about DOT Physicals… so what can I do?
Start preparing meals ahead of time. Make meals that are easily transportable, but quick and healthy. Here is an example on how to turn the boring burger routine at lunch into something to look forward to…
First make chicken soup in a slow cooker (crock pot).
Add some egg noodles if you like, but not required.
Then use ready-made pie crust to create lunch for the next couple days.
Go to Amazon.com to get mini pie dishes and make miniature Chicken Pot Pies!
Just poor Chicken Soup into the mini pie dishes and place pie crust over them.
You can freeze them just like that, but they work better if you cook them first, then store in frig.
or freezer or cooler.
