Roll Eyes  Road food has been making me fat.  There is so little healthy food out there and now I put myself on a diet.  Suggestions would be nice.  Trucks don't offer kitchens so road food seems to be my current diet.  Salad will only last a day or two in the truck fridge.  Don't have any means to cook.  Any suggestions?

Leave the road pressed food alone.

What you could do, is juice up some veggies and carry that in a thermos or such. It will keep awhile, or you could freeze it and then as it thaws drink it. You get the nutrition with less calories.  I made cookies out of the pulp a couple days ago, pretty tasty.

Been waiting for your pulp cookie recipe ... any reason you might not want to share it?

As some of you know .... Spicegirl is a truck driver.  About two years ago I started drinking mocha energy drinks and the one thing I have noticed is short term memory loss and brain fog.  Well the correlation of this seemed to be centered around the same time I drank an energy drink .... sometimes two a day.  I just did some research online about it and well as it seems, these drinks are known to have this type of affect on the body and brain.   Here is a paragraph I took from a website (link to originating website provided below the quote).
Confusion/Memory Loss : The use of Brominated vegetable oils (BVO’s) in such drinks directly affects our central nervous system and leaving behind problems like Brain Fog, Memory loss etc. This also have an direct impact on breasts, ovaries, prostate, stomach and skin.
There are more websites that support this allegation so before you pop the top and take a sip, ask yourself ... "is stupid the new in thing?"

First of all, Spicegurl..............I guess I don't know what a hotbox is.....can you explain it to this dummy, please?

Hot box is like a lunch box that plugs into a cigarette lighter and warms your food up.  Can't cook in it though.

This is a favorite in our house.  Simple yet yummy!!!

You will need:
12 oz pkg of caramels
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 stick of butter
I package of marshmallows
Rice Krispies cereal

Unwrap the caramels and place them in a double boiler. 
Add the sweetened condensed milk and the butter

Melt together over hot water in the double boiler  (this takes a while to get the caramels all melted and the mixture smooth...just keep stirring)

Place a couple of cups of Rice Krispies in a medium bowl with high sides.

I use a small two tined fork I have to dip the marshmallows in the caramel, then place it in the Rice Krispies and shake it around to coat it well.

Push the marshmallow onto waxed paper to set.

Yes, you have to do them one at a time........LOL!!!..........trust me, they are worth it!!

No, this is not made with zucchini.......it's made with regular squash......I prefer to use butternut squash because I like the texture and it seems a 'richer' squash to me. 

1 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. cooked and mashed squash
1/2 c. cooking oil
2 eggs
1/4 c. water
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 c. raisins
1/2 c. chopped pecans

In a large bowl, combine sugars, cooked squash, oil and eggs;  beat until well blended.  Stir in water.  Thoroughly stir together flour, soda, salt nutmeg cinnamon and ginger.  Add to squash mixture and mix well.  Stir in raisins and pecans.  Pour batter into well greased loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 65 to 70 minutes or until done.  Remove from pan; cool on rack.  Wrap and store overnight for best flavor.  Makes 1 large loaf..
