After you've spent enough years on the road, you slowly begin to hone in on the right road diet. Or if like me, you're stubborn enough, you eventually stop eating things that screw up your day in one way or another. Also, having plenty of time to listen to the likes of Tim Ferriss and Joe Rogan certainly helps. All that bleeding edge info about meats, fats and sugars starts to finally penetrate even the thickest of skulls, and the blood sugar energy-crash roller coaster begins to give way to dense slow burn energy.
Here's what works for me: skip the breads and sugary drinks at all costs. Desserts will precipitate an energy rush followed by the desire to hibernate (not a roadworthy aspiration). Pizza is a tempting but dangerous proposition. Coffee is both friend and foe. Redbull is best used in emergency situations, like the second to last leg of that trip back from Indiana, when Pittsburgh flies by but the endless miles of the same farms render the minutes into slow motion sludge. Even if you're not on some form of keto, paleo or The Eskimo Diet, the best energy is delivered the old fashioned way, via MEAT, especially when tasty things like spices and cranberries are incorporated.
The holidays are over :( so throw out those stale cookies! To seriously level up your snack game whether you're on the road or not, these are what you need. If you're a total jerky noob, this sample pack will prime your palate before digging in deep.
