Pack a cooler with goodies !

Whole wheat pita pocket stuffed with chicken, veggies, tuna, omelet, whatever he likes.
Or make a wrap sandwich.

Large pieces of cut up fruit he can eat with his hands.

Whole wheat crackers and cheese "sandwich"

Microwaved popcorn in a bag

Hard boiled eggs

Drinkable yogurts

Portion out 200 calories worth of peanuts, cashews, walnuts whatever he likes.

String cheese

Here is my recipe for fat free fruit muffins !!


1/2 cup applesauce
EggBeaters equivilent to 2 whole eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups any fruit ( I have used blueberries, strawberries and apples. When using apples, sprinkle a little cinnamon/sugar on top before baking)

Using paper liners in your muffin/cupcake pan.Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes . Makes one dozen muffins.

These freeze well! I put them in individual plastic sandwich bags and can be warmed up in the microwave for 30 seconds !! Or put them in his cooler frozen and they will defrost in no time at all !

Also I literally JUST saw this, it was posted to my facebook like 5 min ago.
healthy-no-heat-lunches-for-work.html A lot won't work for you but it looks like there's some good ideas on here. I think many of the salad recipes could be put in a wrap or in a pita for utensil free eating.

Also this would be a good idea, I've eaten something similar to these at room temp at a party and they're good:

Hmm that makes things difficult, doesn't it? :)

Here's a link to 20 ideas of different wraps

Also, maybe doing some veggie skewers? Anything on a stick can be eaten without utensils :) You could do like chicken, cherry tomatoes and basil. Or different kinds of squash that has been pre-cooked. Most cooked squash is still good at room temperature.

No there is no access to a microwave. He works on back roads. I see all these wonderful lunch recipes but he can't use them because they require heat up, cooking and or utensils. He needssomething with none of those and to be able to eat them quickly between loading each load of fluid.

Can he heat something up in a microwave on the road? Most truck stops have microwaves. If so, what about some kind of calzone type thing, only filled with more veggies than cheese and meat?

Also wraps would be a good idea... some lunch meat, or some chicken breasts you cook at home and then chop up, mix in things like lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, whatever.

Just straight up fruits are good to snack on... apples, grapes, berries, bananas. You could also put some peanut butter on celery sticks.

Some sort of frittata/Spanish omelette? Nice eaten cold and can be sliced into wedges and eaten with fingers. Also, protein from the eggs makes it pretty filling.

Hey everyone,
I am looking for lunch ideas for my husband. He drives truck all day and doesn't really have time to sit and eat a lunch that requires a utensil. I am looking for lunches that are veggieful and easy to snack on. Can anyone help me with this issue?
