Don’t Let Your Tank Run on Empty: Fuel Up and Feel Good

Friday March 28, 2014 // By Matthew Moseley

You wouldn’t try to drive to work on an empty tank of gas and you would never expect a delivery driver’s boss to say “your tank is almost empty but it may last the rest of the day.”  We wouldn’t expect good results from a car running on no fuel, so why do we do it to our bodies?

It’s all too often in our fast-paced culture, we decide to skip a meal or stop by a nearby fast food drive-thru for a quick meal.  Yet, we still expect extreme work efficiencies and grandiose amounts of output.  I’m here to tell you, it won’t work!  You can only expect results as good as the inputs you use.  This means working on an empty stomach or relying on high fat content, low nutritional value meals can take its toll on your body and leave you underperforming your true potential.  And this is not an option.  In that case, what do you do if you can’t find even a spare second in your daily routine?  Try convenient, healthy snacking options!

If you don’t think this is a reality, you are probably not aware of a growing category of products known as grab-n-go. These products are handy, portable snacking options that offer all the nutrition and sustenance one would expect from a moderate sized meal.  The main focus is to make an efficient snacking option that can travel just about anywhere you want to take it and is either fully prepared or simply requires the addition of hot milk or water.  Could it get any better you ask?  Yes it does, here at BPS, we have an array of offerings so that no matter what time of day you’re most inundated with busy work,you can still enjoy a nourishing, delicious snack!  We carry everything from oatmeal and hot cereal to snack bars and all-natural candy.
