On the Go Meal Plan to Help You Refuel When You’re Running on Empty

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This #Refuel2Go shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser.
For as long as I can remember my husband has always had to eat at least one meal of the day, five days out of the week in his car.  
He drives for a living which requires a lot of fuel for his car and careful planning to ensure he gets the proper fuel for his body while on the road.
Each week we plan our weekly menus, and since it’s warm we use our grill as much as possible.

For his lunch this week I’ve planned out the following.
  • meat: grilled chicken
  • side: fresh broccoli and spinach salad
  • snack: SNICKERS® 2-to-go bars
  • beverage: 20 oz. Dr Pepper
I picked up a two SNICKERS® 2-to-go bars, two SNICKERS® Almond 2-to-go bars and four 20 oz. Dr Pepper from Walmart and saved $2 off with two of these coupons.

If you purchase (2) SNICKERS® 2-to-go and (2) 20 oz Dr Pepper bottles, then text or email your receipt to refuel@drvusa.com you’ll be entered for a chance to win 1 of 250 available Walmart gas/gift cards.

Like I said, my husband drives for a living so we can always use a free gas card.
I store all of the snacks and beverages in a dedicated compartment in our refrigerator until I’m ready to assemble his lunches.  
This ensures the kids don’t drink or eat the stuff I bought for his lunch.
In order to make grabbing meals easy for my husband, I portion them out into my favorite lunch containers
Once his meals are portioned out, I pair each with a SNICKERS® 2-to-go and a 20 oz. Dr Pepper.
We have an entire shelf in the refrigerator dedicated to my husband’s lunches which makes it easy for him to grab and go.
I enjoy helping my husband prepare for work each week. 
Knowing that I’ve sent him off with the fuel he needs to stay alert and energized puts me at ease and helps him function better.

  1. I'm the worst when it comes to meal planning. It makes me wish I worked from home when I realize I have nothing for lunch! #client

  2. Charrob, I love planning my family's meals. I work from home and plan mine and my husbands. It's so much easier to just have it made and just grab it.

  3. I wish I saw this before my school year last year. I bet I would have saved a lot more if I planned ahead to diligently for my lunches.

Let's continue to conversation in the comment section.
