Being on the road for long periods of time can make it very difficult to eat healthier and maintain physical exercise. Our goal is to share easy ways to enhance your haul experience while also creating a healthy lifestyle! Eating healthy can be the biggest obstacle. Going to McDonalds and grabbing a McChicken and small fry $3 bundle is the best solution to us sometimes. Or an expired snack from a gas station. Well, there is way to still go to some of those places and still eat healthier.
Here are some healthier options that can be found at places that you already are most likely going to!
McDonald’s has been one of the cheapest options for years. Order this next time you’re at the drive thru! Most would assume to order fruit items or a salad, but this will leave you more satisfied and still a cleaner option.

Caffeine has to be a truck driver’s best friend, but we also want to make sure you don’t crash from those sugary drinks! Of course, making it at home would be best but when you’re on the road and want to stop at Starbucks, order this!
