Here it is – from personal experience I’ve found it tough to find food affordable and somewhat healthy… So here’s three ways that you can eat healthy-ish and not break the bank.
Why? Well bananas keep well, as long as you keep them out of the dark. Thats important when you’re driving the long highways of Canada. You need food that can go the miles with you.
2. Peanut (or any nut) butter
While all nuts contain some toxins and moulds, this is an easy way to get a good source of protein and healthy fats into your body without spiking the blood sugar and leaving you to crash. Just make sure you’re eating the organic stuff if you can and look for the stuff that’s really separated – no Kraft PB, folks. That’s sugar 101, and a whole different conversation. I won’t digress….
Dip the banana in the PB. Omnomnom!
3. Veggies and Hummus
Super healthy alternative to any chip & dip or snack food you might be otherwise inclined to pick up from the truck stop. I love baby carrots and snap peas, because those are the easiest to grab and go and dip in the hummus. The only downside is you’ll need to refrigerate this snack, which can pose a storage problem.
You don’t have to be a rock star to start, but you have to start in order to become a rock star.
