Feed your body no matter how busy you are. It’s important. It’s one of the keys to better health.
As a wife, mother of four, and an entrepreneur, I am constantly on the go. There are days when it seems like the only free time I have is when I sleep.
All of that running around and constant go, go, go means that I sometimes forget to eat or just skip it due to time constraints. And let me tell you, when I miss it, I feel it.
Why You Need to Feed Your Body
Like I said, I feel it when I miss a meal, and I don’t just mean I feel hungry. I mean I feel the effects of not getting the nutrients I need to keep myself powered up and ready to knock out what I need to do in a day.
I get sluggish, I start to lose focus, and I even get a headache if it’s been an extended period of time. I’m basically running on fumes. And that’s not the worst of it. When I finally do eat, I have to recover, and I’m generally sapped for the rest of the day.
You see, when you don’t feed your body, it feeds on itself. It needs protein, fat, and carbohydrates to properly function, and when it doesn’t get it from food, it gets it from your body’s stores. Your body begins to break down muscle for protein. It raids the glycogen stores in your liver for energy. It basically feeds off of itself. In the short term, you feel bad, in the long term, it can affect your health.
How You Can Feed Your Body on the Go
I’ve made the decision that I will not allow myself to feel so crummy when I absolutely do not have to. To that end, I’m feeding my body with healthy and convenient foods that I can eat no matter where I am.
I keep my bag stocked with granola bars, I keep a bottle of water in my car at all times, and I make sure I always have StarKist Tuna and Salmon Pouches to make sure I always get the protein I need to face the day.
StarKist Tuna and Salmon Pouches are a delicious and nutritious way for me to easily get the protein in need no matter where I am. And here’s the thing I love – they come in 21 varieties, including 13 season Tuna & Salmon Creations varieties, tuna & salmon in water or oil, and low sodium options.
That variety is important to me because I get tired of eating the same thing all the time. They also require no can opener or draining which makes them extremely convenient for eating on the go or just keeping myself fueled throughout the day while I’m working at home.
I love how the pouches make it easy to add seafood and protein to my favorite salads, meals and snacks. Or, if I’m really pressed for time, I can just grab a fork and eat straight from the pouch wherever I am – just Tear. Eat. And Go!
Feed Your Body and Feel Better
I’ve been rocking it out with healthy eating since I started keeping my water, granola bars, and StarKist Tuna and Salmon Pouches! I encourage you busy folks out there to keep yourself stocked up in easy to eat portable foods like mine, including StarKist Tuna and Salmon Pouches, so you can feed your body no matter how busy you are.
