So I drive a dump truck for a job and have to eat as I drive, we don't get lunch breaks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I would love to bring smoothies to work, but understand that they lose nutrients and enzymes after they are blended. What would be the best possible way to do this. Isn't there devices to get the air out of a mason jar? Would this even be worth it or would I be better off just eating fruits and veggies? The biggest problem with that, it's hard to clean my hands while I work and they sometimes get dirty. I know, it's a ****ty job for eating healthy.

I would make the smoothies and not worry too much about oxidation. Just eat them on the same day you make them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

^^ Yep. A smoothie that has sat for a while is better than no smoothie at all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Instead of trying to get all the air out of the jar, why not just fill the jar with smoothie?

I say bring a little insulated bag with some fruit and nuts and rice etc. if your hands are dirty use a wet wipe. Smoothies and juices are awesome, but less filling and have more calories.

Thanks everyone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I probably will still bring some fruit and veggies to snack on, that will fill me up just fine.

I just bought a thermos its freaking amzing. I made A smoothie that was fruit vegetables and ice. The ice didnt melt 10 hours later! So yeah basically long story short get a really good thermos or a few of them and you should be ok as they work really really well. Try to get the ones that say they can keep stuff hot or hold for at least 24 hours they pawn. Just remember to pre chill or heat them i.e. fill them with ice water for a while before you add your smoothie.
