My husband drives local routes, but still has to have one or two meals in his truck (or its fast food). He usually takes some fresh fruit and raw veggies for snack or a side at lunch. I pound out chicken breast to about 1/4 inch thick, lightly season them with some spices, usually basil, thyme, and garlic then bake. He eats them cold on a sandwich with whole wheat bread and veggies like lettuce and tomato, mustard, light mayo, etc. I make salad for my own lunch out of greens, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, peas and any other veggies I have on hand then open a can of tuna to put on top. That would probably work in a truck, too, since there is no cooking involved. Just keep the veggies separate from the lettuce until you are ready to eat or the greens will get soggy.

what about a whole grain salad? like bulgar or barley? I eat them cold all the time, no need to heat up. Make a lot and take it for lunch for a few days.

I bought my husband a "lunch box" that plugs into cigarette lighter and heats things up. Works really well. He has to carry ice chest too but it's better than fast food. Most truck stops carry them and online of course. About 40 dollars. Opens up eating options.

Does anyone have ideas for food on the road. Some thing that can be eaten on the road no stove not microwave.
