And if he's not already doing it, give him a big 'ol thermos of water for him to drink. That helps the fiber move along and do its job. And lots of veggies and fruits as snacks - carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, olives, apples, bananas, kiwi, oranges, grapefruit - his choice!

Since his triglycerides are so high and he would likely benefit from increased fiber intake, you might want to consider adding Benefiber to some of his meals. We sometimes throw it into shakes, coffee, pasta sauces or soups for added benefit. I promise, you cannot taste it if you use the right amount and blend it well. And you can usually get a good deal at a discount warehouse like Costco.

I would be inclined to make some very lean meat or fish-in-a-white-sauce and salad sanwiches using good bread with a high fibre, low sodium content. If we go out in the car for the day I always use frozen bread and where it comes to the meat, often a frozen meat pattie which I make with a small amount of very lean mince meat (ground beef) loads of lentils, tomato paste and finely chopped veges. The extra protein will help to keep him fuller, but the bulk of the protein is a really good non-animal source.

Really good thick soups or casseroles (made with loads of veges and lentils, and a small amount of lean meat) in a thermos (and remember to pack a spoon :-) and pack some healthy sandwiches to go with it, is another good choice. Chucking in a couple bananas, apples, small handful of nuts etc, into a container he can nibble at while driving is also good.

Can anyone give me any ideas for my husband's lunches. He drives a truck all day for a living and usually just stops and gets something quick and unhealthy for lunch. We live in a very rural area without many choices. We found out today his triglycerides are over 500. I read some info online but its very confusing.
