To continue on the staying healthy trend, we are going to be talking about how eating healthy out of your truck is beneficial for you. Whether you are a long distance driver or not, this task may seem impossible, but with some time, you can get in the routine of preparing meals and foods before you begin your day. It may seem like it would be easier to just stop and get something quick, however these meals tend to be not as healthy. Here are a few tips that can not only allow you to make more healthy food choices, but can also save money you would spend on restaurant meals.
When many Americans prepare food, it is usually in a kitchen. The average kitchen size is 70 square feet, so trying to compact a full kitchen within the cabin would be nearly impossible. However, there are versions of equipment that would aid in preparing food on the road that is smaller in size. The two main pieces of equipment would be used to keep food cold and to cook. An ice chest, cooler, or compact refrigerator would be best to keep foods cold. To cook foods, a small grill, crock pot, electric skillet, or hot plate would work great and each of these tools is small enough to store away. Having a small supply of utensils is a must, this way you’re not eating and cooking with your hands.
Now that you have the tools for food preparation, what do you make? Cooking a chicken breast or two would be simple to do and you can add it to bed of lettuce for a healthy salad. Add your favorite pre-washed and cut vegetables to make your salad more nutritious and flavorful. Having the cooler or refrigerator allows for storage for lettuce, spinach, vegetables, meats, and fruits. Whole fruit makes for a great snack that is easy to grab and go. Nothing goes better with a meal or snack than some cold water. Replacing sodas and sugary drinks with water will not only be a healthier choice but will leave you feeling refreshed.
