Carb choices for guys on the road?

I am on the road most of the day and I’m having trouble finding a good complex carb to eat while I’m on the road. I don’t have problems with the protein part of it since I just drink a protein shake. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Mix your protein drink with cottage cheese and uncooked, old fashioned oatmeal. Add some extra artificial sweetner and flavoring if needed. Cut back the liquid in the shake to keep the cottage cheese / oatmeal mix from being to soupy. Or mix cottage cheese and/or tuna with either black or red beans and salsa/hot sauce and seasonings. Use your imagination and the search engine - this topic has been discussed many times.

Frosted mini-wheats! Serious. I drive about 8 hrs (to see my son) every month or so, and I just put a box between me and the door of my car. They’re tasty, and clean.

Can you fill a softback cooler with baked potatoes or yams? And baked potatoes can also be gotten in just about any grocery store deli.
