Default What healthy recipe do you like?

My wife makes me a great burrito that is low fat. We have a microwave in the truck so she heats up a package of SW Chicken strips made by Tyson (found at Wal Mart in meat section prepared foods), she heats a whole wheat tortilla, places several chicken strips in the tortilla, adds chopped onions (Wal Mart sells prechopped in produced section in a plastic container), chicken strips, sprinkles with low fat 2% milk cheese, adds salsa, low fat sour cream and wallah you have a chicken burrito that is great tasting. She sometimes heats up a can of black beans (great for the fiber) to add to the burrito or I eat on the side with chopped onions.

I would love to hear about some others!

Does anyone have any more healthy food suggestions that I can take on the road? I'm having a hard time finding options.

When I am on the road I often have an omelet and substitute fruit for potatoes. You could take fruit with you on the road. You can also take raw vegetables to eat as snacks. Several years ago I bought an electric cup that plugs into the cigarette lighter. I think I paid $1 at Dollar General. It is good to use to heat water for oatmeal, warm up soup, coffee or any other liquid you may want. The downside is that it is slow to heat up. I have known some who prepare foods at home, put them in plastic containers and heat them up in the truck or in a truck stop. Something that can be done cheaply in the truck is cold cereal. You can get milk at any truck stop or Walmart. Cereal doesn't need refrigeration. I don't eat out of the truck much. I did at one time to save money and also to eat better. I would either have oatmeal or cold cereal for breakfast and make a sandwich in the truck for lunch or dinner. I usually ate one meal in a restaurant where I could have vegetables. It is difficult to eat healthy on the road, but it can be done. Stick with low carbohydrates and high protein. Basically, stay away from bread and anything white, such as pasta. It is important to eat a balanced diet. That means eating vegetables and fruit. Watch the quantity of food you consume. It isn't healthy to eat more than you need.

It may not be all that healthy, but I like to fry chicken, homemade biscuits, gravy, mashed potatoes, turnip greens, pinto beans, fresh tomatoes and onions. YUM!!!

I agree GMAN! It's hard to stay away from fried chicken and biscuits...they're my fav. I'm pretty sure keeping a cooler with fresh vegetables and fruit is the way to go though.

I was doing a little bit of research and found this post that's pretty helpful.

6 oz chicken breast
2 slices cheese
2 large lettuce leaves
4-6 slices tomato
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
Salt & pepper
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
Fresh bread
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp yellow mustard

We never run out of fresh veggies. I make sure I prepare a plate of vegetables for my family. I also squeeze/blend some fresh juices.
