Beef Jerky. Good source of gas station protein.

Well seeing as you can pretty much wait 3 hours between meals you can hold off on the food, assuming you eat right before you leave. If you MUST have something while driving, mix up a tuna salad on WW bread. Thats a perfect on the go meal IMO. Small, has a balance of macro's and you can eat it fairly quickly without a mess.

Well, the underlying point of my post (sorry i didn't clearly express it) is that you should pre plan and not buy gas station crap. Make a meal, any meal pull over and eat it, even if its brown rice and chicken or a sweet potato or something. Just stay away from combos and gatorade, unless your refeeding.

oh, good point there....thanks yanick.
i guess it would be good to bring food along...but gatorade would still be my drink of choice...not good to fall asleep at the wheel

That's why they made Diet Coke.

if you're worried about a lack of energy a sweet potato would be a much better choice than gatorade. While gatorade will give an almost immediate energy boost (quick absorption) the end result will be low blood sugar with high insulin which will not only cause lethargy but will make you hungry.

A sweet potato will work as time released energy. It will be absorbed slowly and provide an 'IV drip' of glucose.

EDIT:gatorade has caffiene in it? If it does, ignore my whole post above :D
