Great ideas guys! Thanks! I printed that list out to hang in the back of the truck on the wall! It's easier to remember when it's always staring you in the face!!! emoticon

You can make virtually anything in a microwave that can be made stove-top. It may require variation in extra water, or wrap with a wet paper towel, or similar modification, but it can be done. Baked potatoes are awesome in the microwave - stab a few times with a fork, wrap in a damp papertowel, and nuke for 5 minutes. Corn on the cob is the same, only don't stab with a fork first and just zap for two minutes. Protein sources require finesse, attention, and depend on the recipe as to method and time, but they can be done (google each one you want, and don't expect it to be the best you've ever had, but it's edible). Various varieties of canned beans can be a nice go-to for protein and fiber. Sandwiches? PB&J, pick up lunchmeat at an exit when getting gas, etc.

We remodeled our kitchen the other year and lived out of a microwave for 4 months, and did not have a crockpot. You can make it work!

There's some really good crock pot recipes on here - here is one of my faves, it has the advantage of being mostly out of cans (so not great for sodium) so it ought to be easy for you to assemble:

You can eat the result as a stew with bread, or pull out the meat for tacos or on buns for a sandwich.

Maybe your husband will join you on those laps!

My husband is a truck driver. 6'4 and roughly 250 lbs. I love him dearly, and he is very much my teddy bear. I however DO NOT wish to be fluffy!! I'm going on the road with him for a MONTH. I'd love some advice here!!! I'm planning to do laps around the parking lot at night and i can do a lot of toning in the cab since it's actually quite spacious, but that isn't really going to compensate for being in a truck 11 hours a day....

And if anyone has good ideas on meals (must be crock-pot or microwave) I'd really appreciate it!!
