During a long car journey, in spite of appearances, we burn up to 1000 kilocalories. Moreover, an improper diet can directly affect our well-being and the level of concentration, which in case of drivers play an extremely important role. Dinner at a roadside inn or a fast-food restaurant is undoubtedly a poor choice in such a situation. So what to eat to avoid sleepiness, fatigue or stomach ache?



  • Food on the roadshould be divided into meals eaten at intervals of approximately three hours. They should be easily digestible and properly balanced to provide the driver with a lot of energy and strengthen concentration on the road.
  • Keeping your body hydrated is essential while driving. However, too much mineral water is not advisable due to the need to use the toilet frequently. On the other hand, isotonic drinks with a balanced formula are a perfect solution.
  • SUPERSONIC products in the form of a cocktail are perfect meal substitutes for drivers. They provide a balanced amount of all the necessary nutrients, and at the same time, they are quick and easy to prepare.

What to eat on the road?


During a long journey, we often decide to stop and eat not because of hunger but because of pure greed. However, it must not be forgotten that diet while driving a car is of great importance not only for our well-being but for safety as well. Healthy food on the road  is therefore an absolute must.


In this case, the best solution is to make frequent stops and eat small amounts of easily digestible food.


So what should a driver’s diet consist of? At the beginning, it is worth determining the amount of food while driving. The optimal version is to have a meal every three hours.


Food for drivers should consist of easily digestible and properly balanced meals that provide the right amount of energy without the feeling of heaviness. They cannot miss cereal products with a low glycemic index, as well as fresh vegetables and fruit. However, it is worth giving up fatty meat and fried dishes that make you sleepy or cause stomach disorders.


Hydration is a key to success.


According to research conducted by Loughborough University and the European Hydration Institute, insufficient amount of drinking water causes drivers to make the same mistakes as people under the influence of alcohol. For this reason, it is necessary to drink a minimum of 2 liters of fluid, especially on hot days.


Mineral water is a good solution but it can cause your bladder to fill too quickly, resulting in forced and unplanned stops. A good solution in this situation are isotonic drinks, that not only perfectly hydrate the body but also provide it with the right amount of energy, reduce the feeling of fatigue and stimulate your body to act.


SUPERSONIC Food and Isotonic. What to eat and drink on the road?


Oat flakes, legume vegetables protein, flaxseed, adaptogens or Spanish sage are the allies of each driver. When planning meals for the road, it is worth trying out the innovative SUPERSONIC products in the form of a delicious cocktail (SUPERSONIC Food Powder) or an isotonic drink. Prepared on the natural plant-based ingredients, they provide the body with, for example, protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats in the form of bioesters, fiber, as well as a set of micro and macro elements. This is a huge time saver on the route, and at the same time, a guarantee of a delicious and easily digestible meal any time.




Diet for professional drivers and people who have to drive a car for many hours is of great importance for the safety of all road users. Let’s make sure your meals are healthy and provide all the necessary nutrients. However, it is also important to stay hydrated, especially in summer, when the temperatures outside can be really high.
