You could have some healthy prepared meals kept in your freezer. Some sandwiches keep well in there - particularly cheese/meat-type ones. Just take them out and let them thaw during the day. Yoghurt and little containers of fruit can be kept there too, along with little pots of cooked brown rice (to be added to something like a little pouch of flavoured tuna, etc. ! It provides a cool lunch when you are ready to eat it and doesn't need special storage in the vehicle.

Hard boiling 1/2 doz eggs at the start of the week, keeping in the fridge, and taking one with you each day to be eaten at your first snack/meal break will also provide you with protein and filling food.

Making a fruit/vege smoothie at night and putting into the freezer at night will also provide you with good, cooling nourishment for later in the day. Try adding some nuts/seeds to the smoothie for healthy fats and satiety. The smoothie will also add to fluid consumption.

Fresh fruit, kept with the frozen foods, also helps - ready when you are.

Ensure that you are getting plenty of hydration - hot temp's and vehicles are notorious for dehydration!!

I need help! I have no motivation, energy or ideas. I am up at 4:30 every morning drive an hour to work, deliver the mail and drive an hour home, cook for the family and then relax. Working in the heat (100 plus temps) and I'm exhausted. I can't seem to find the right things to pack in my lunch that will help and I don't know where to start. Any ideas? It's too hot outside to do much and can't afford a gym either.
