Just a question if you don't mind. what kind of foods do you put in your cooler? I will need to start packing my lunches myself, and could use ideas from someone who lost 40 lbs!
I packed water, unsweetened iced tea, bananas, apples, peanuts, almonds, fiber bars, low salt pretzels, cans of tuna, fresh carrots, and hard boiled eggs. I ate pretty much the same almost every day except for once a week where treated myself to a Subway hoagie. If I went with the guys to a FF place I always opted for a salad with vinegarette, maybe a broiled chicken wrap, along with a cup of water.
Eating light was no problem as the temps soared into the low 100's in the Yard, and it was more like 110 inside the truck. The A/C didn't work well if at all. Old trucks.
When I'm on the road I'll have a frig with me in my sleeper. Also a George Foreman grill. I'll be eating turkey burgers on multigrain bread and microwaving sweet potatoes. I'll be doing all my own cooking and when I can't I'll always choose a salad at any stop.
