Check in with ‘Roadcookin’ authors on online radio
If you missed it last Thursday, fuel hauler Allen Smith and his wife, Donna, of the AsktheTrucker.com blog and Truth About Trucking, among other pursuits, hosted Pam Whitfield and Don Jacobson on their Truth About Trucking Live online radio show. Whitfield and Jacobson are coauthors of the Roadcookin’ “guide to healthy eating” for long-haul drivers. Check the book out here.
As the Smiths wrote on their blog, “the combination of various career-related health issues and possible DOT regulations,” including the possibility that body mass index will be used as a mandatory sleep apnea screening factor, “has created an increased awareness for professional drivers regarding their health.” The awareness, of course, extends far beyond drivers’ jobs into the very ability to “live a quality life during and after our driving career” as well.
