Schneider launches driver cooking video series, Instagram contest

Herbs with Herb

Eating at a truck stop all the time can easily cost truck drivers $150 to $200 a week, with many of the food options being unhealthy. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

We want drivers to be able to save more of their hard-earned money and eat healthier with some simple cooking tips for the road.

That’s why we’re launching a new driver video series called “Herbs with Herb” — featuring Schneider Curriculum Development Specialist Herb Moring, who has been a driver instructor, a training engineer (TE) and a million-mile driver.

Herb has worn many hats at Schneider since joining the company in 1992, and we’re thrilled to add chef hat to that list. When he was a TE, he’d offer to cook for his trainees, saving both of them money on the road.

With the tips he’ll share, drivers can reduce food spending to $50 to $70 a week, while eating healthier.

We launched the pilot episode of “Herbs with Herb” on Nov. 28, showcasing how to cook a chicken and carrot meal on the road with a portable stove/12-volt lunch box (which also cracked our list of holiday gift ideas for truck drivers).

Watch the first episode below, and keep following our Facebook page to watch more “Herbs with Herb” cooking how-to videos.

Instagram contest – Win a 12-volt lunch box

We want you to be able to cook easily and safely (no open heating elements!) on the road, too, so we’ve launched a contest exclusively on our Instagram page this week, and the prize: one RoadPro 12-Volt Portable Stove, to help you up your cooking game on the road.
