    I dunno about you but cheap fast food screws me up something fierce.

    I just about live in my truck, i have a few 12v cooking gadgets i managed to snag dirt cheap over the years. Sat, i had chicken tacos for lunch. Really easy, partially cook chicken breast however you like it, i stuff it in my 12v crock pot and stick it in the fridge. I plug it in when i hit the road in the am and by lunch time it falls apart with a fork, a little rice and flour tortillas and im happy.

    basically add chicken breast and a small jar of your favorite salsa, juice of one lime and some cliantro and let it cook for 4 hours. works great for pulled pork, chili. I have a small walmart propane grill that i might bring with and stop at a grocery store for a burger/steak or something.

    I did however try my first colombian burger this week since i was too lazy to bring anything with me. makes me remember how i miss out on trying new stuff when i'm out and about but man does dining out add up real quick

    Oh. Boars head garlic bologna pan fried on white bread if you wanna talk about southern.

    I wonder...

    Do you think a 2.5qt Crockpot could run off an inverter with no problem? I imagine it only uses as much electricity as a 60W bulb. That thing could stew in the back of the truck from morning until noon.

    There is always time for lunch. No one is going to die waiting a little longer for a/c. Besides, company policy is to take a one hour lunch. You can opt not to take a lunch, but your time is going to get knocked back an hour.

    I have a lunch spot everywhere that I go ( I have a number of accounts around the state, its sort of like a route sometimes). Some are great places to eat, some are the only thing nearby. I dont like a cold soggy sandwich, and my truck is not a kitchen. Especially with the quantity of bugs around here. It costs a little extra, but im worth it.

    I skip lunch. Who has time to eat? I work right through lunch and all breaks.

    Eat a nice dinner - you'll be fine.

    But drink a lot of water all day.

    Joe,

    When I am in Florida - I am a whole new man. I do get an earlier start, but I have eggs and grits for breakfast at nine, take lunch from twelve to one thirty, and knock off at about three.

    Bump for an old thread.
    Most of the summer the wife has been making me the suddenly salad box mixes. The chipotle flavor with leftover chopped chicken mixed in is my personal favorite. Plus this summers been awesome for fruit. I usually take a cup of fresh cantilope or watermelon to snack on in the morning.
    Plus about 5 bottles of water to keep the thirst down and I'm good to go.
    Come winter I'll probably pull the mini crock pot back out for soups and such. Wife bought me one a couple years back and I love the thing. Works great for a single serve lunch.

    In your defense Joe; when I'm Running - very few can, or are willing to, stay with me. <G>

    My favorite summer time snack is white (sometimes called green) seedless grapes. I keep them refrigerated at home and on ice when on the go. Like melon, they help me to stay hydrated. And they satisfy my sweet tooth and my snack craving. A bonus is that they are easy and no mess to eat.

    Lunchables, bag of black grapes, and peanut butter crackers. No lunch break, I just snack between jobs
