    Try and get another thread going for this. Post your suggestions.

    I bought the vegetable kabobs from Walmart. At $6.50 they're a little expensive but you get three and if you break it down to one per day, it would cost $2.15 each, cheaper and healthier than the usual garbage. Of course, if you make them yourself it would be much cheaper. One wrapped in foil is a perfect fit in the lunchbox oven.

    I'd take up smoking butts again and get so fat OTR. My sincerest accolades to the folks who can maintain their "fighting weight" out there.

    Have to. Put it in the lunchbox oven, rolled 60 miles, pulled over, and it was done. Turned out great.

    As far as prepared food goes thats fairly reasonable. Save those sticks and cut your own next time. There is truckstop food thats healthy, but it doesnt sell well, so its not in the fried section with the high selling comfort foods. I went veg for couple years. And when running hard, and grocery store was not option. I ate a lot of bananas, apples and coleslaw when there. Sometimes there are salads, but usually is mostly Iceberg lettuce with has nutritional value similar to the plastic that holds it.
    PS carry a jar of peanut butter in truck...

    Those look awesome. I like substituting some mushrooms for meat.

    If you're OTR a sustainable routine is the first priority.

    I've always had success finding groceries within walking distance once every 10 days, worst case scenario but usually a Walmart regularly.

    Raw vegetables that last long and I combine into sandwich bags are usually broccoli, baby carrots, celery, radishes, and small cucumbers.

    When I'm driving I grab a bag of the vegetables, add a handful of thick sliced pepperoni and some corn nuts and I'm good.

    Vegetables allow high volume but lower calorie impact.
