STANLEY, N.D. (AP) _ Forget salty chips and fatty pizza. Truckers hauling through North Dakota's Oil Patch are finding that some stops offer healthy food options.
Stanley Cenex, owned by the Farmers Union Oil. Co., has hired an executive chef who makes prime rib and lemon pepper-infused chicken to give truckers more choices.
Twenty-six-year-old chef Caleb Pearsall moved to North Dakota last year. He says he brought with him ``fresh, homemade and real'' food. He says that he wishes truck stop junk food would disappear altogether.
The Grab `N Go in Killdeer also is providing better-quality food and deli meats.
Sakakawea Medical Center Wellness Consultant Bert Speidel says having healthier choices might help truck drivers fight the addiction and health woes that come with eating corn syrup and sodium.
