Food For Truckers – Quick, Easy and Healthy Meals for Truck Drivers

Posted by deckerAdmin

We know life on the road can be tough, I mean, even trying to plan meals can be difficult. You want to eat healthier, because you want to feel good, but…it can be expensive and time consuming tracking down the right ingredients for the right price. Plus, once you have purchased the basics, where are you going to store them.

We’d like to help. Here are a couple of recipes that are not only delicious, but they don’t take a lot of time to prepare, it won’t cost you a fortune AND it will feed you for several meals. Finding convenient food for truckers, can be a pain, we are making it easy by showing you what you can cook in your semi truck and with Decker we have the equipment to make easy meals for truck drivers.

Here at Decker Truck Line, all of our trucks are equipped with APUs and refrigerators and plenty of storage space. Check it out for yourself, Decker Equipment – Truck Video. This is to provide you some comforts of home while out on the road.

For these meals, you will need a crock pot. Below are the videos and the recipes. They are pretty simple, so if you don’t have time or don’t want to watch the video, no problem. You can figure it out. If you want to join in and hear of substitutes for several of the ingredients, then watch the videos for each of the easy meals. Enjoy!

Driver Appreciation Week #MMLIVE – Why We Are Thankful for Our Drivers

Posted by deckerAdmin

Driver Appreciation Week #MMLIVE Sept 10th, 2018

Every day our drivers are out on the road making sacrifices for all of us. They are hardworking, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, grandmas or grandpas, aunts and uncles. They are our loved ones, making sure we are being taken care of.

Why I’m Thankful for Truck Drivers

Andrea shared a reminder of what a driver sacrifices on a daily basis to provide for not only their family’s personal needs but all of our needs (and wants). Here is a snip-it:

Imagine not being able to leave your office for 8-10 hours and then being required to sleep in your office at the end of the day. Imagine not being able to shower or do your laundry when you want. Imagine eating your meals alone and only seeing your family once every week or two – if that. Imagine having to miss out on your kids’ games, school programs, and even birthdays and holidays because you’re at work. THAT is the life of a truck driver.”

There are over a dozen reasons on our recent Facebook post “I’m Thankful for Truck Drivers because…”

When you take time, please read it. As a driver, I hope it warms your heart to know that we DO appreciate all you do for us. Others, I hope the post not only reminds you of why you are grateful for a truck driver but encourages you to also share your gratitude.

Our #MMLIVE was a fun one, there was a lot of visiting, story telling, testimonials, encouraging and, of course, opportunities discussed. I didn’t even realize how long we were going. That’ll happen when you get together to catch up. Thank you all you joined it for the fun. You can watch that here:

And…CONGRATS to the winners of the Video Contest we held. I’ll be sharing some of those videos in the next few weeks. So, be on the lookout for them. We decided that there are FOUR winners of the $100 Walmart Gift Cards. Congratulations to:

Berta Barnett 

James Cleveland

Wade Bland

Happy Driver Appreciation Week to ALL the Professional Drivers out on the road. Don’t forget, our Decker drivers can get their driver appreciation gifts at the terminals. Talk to you driver manager or get ahold of Darin or Jason.
Continue to drive safe, drive Decker.
