Wondering how to get your fruit in? Here’s a tip sent in by one of our drivers: Naked and Bolthouse juice/fruit smoothies can be purchased at every truck stop and meets this week’s challenge. Also V-8 is available in spicy and regular flavors.

Please check with your doctor before significantly changing your diet or starting a new exercise regimen.
