What do you eat while driving?

Do you pack food from home? Have a favorite spot? I am trying to be better about my health but finding it hard while spending so much time in the car.

    I usually just keep some simply snacks to ward off hunger like nuts, trailmix, really anything dry and non-smelly then I cook at home.

    I don't eat in my car. People complain about any small smell, including food.  It's not worth risking.

    If I get hungry, I log out and eat a sit down meal, or better yet, wait until I get home and cook a real meal.

    Depends how many hours one plans on driving on a given day and how many days a wek one drives.

    You do not want to make a sandwich diet 7 days a week :)

    For example, when I go out on Fridays 17:00 - 2:00 I will have a small container with ice packs to cool several sandwiches with turkey/mayo on rye bread, 2 bottles of water, 2 apples and banana, mints.

    neatly stored away in the trunk. Can eat inside car while waiting for rides or from trunk.

    Stay away from too much coffee as that means more frequent bathroom breaks and stay away form convenience food stores, as that is wasteful spending of your hard earned cash. Some pack hot soup in a thermos on colder days
