Being a UPS driver for a living is fun but can very tough at the same time. I am constantly on the move and a typical day on the road for me is anywhere from 10-12 hours so needless to say it can be exhausting. Finding time to eat a healthy balanced meal is very challenging. I don’t have access to a microwave so I am not able to bring leftovers from the night before so my food for the day takes a lot of planning. I try to pack foods and snacks that I know I am going to eat because eating fast food during the day isn’t an option for me due to cost and nutrition. One big problem I have is I am the kind of person that can’t eat the same thing for more than a few days in a row before I get tired of it and need to move onto something new which makes lunch even more of a pain in the neck. Thankfully I discovered the P3 Portable Protein Pack from Oscar Mayer.
Thankfully #CollectiveBias asked me to do a shop for a product called P3 Portable Protein Packs from Oscar Mayer. P3 Portable Protein Packs are specially designed snack size packs to provide a nourishing boost of solid protein. They come in 4 varieties: Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast, Applewood Smoked Ham, Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast and Slow Roasted Turkey Breast. We were able to find three of the varieties at our local WalMart for just $1 per pack in the packaged deli section of the store. The P3 Portable Protein Packs contain three different components, #meatcheesenuts. Each pack is approximately 2 ounces and contains about 13 grams of protein.
In a typical day I will eat anywhere from 3 to 5 small snacks like peanut butter crackers, granola bars, fruit snacks, veggies and cookies. Like I mentioned I get tired of the same foods day in and day out but I do realize I have to eat better because I am not getting any younger. This month I turn the big 40 and constantly moving for 10-12 hours a day isn’t as easy as it use to be. I need all of the help I can get to stay mobile, fueled, nourished and healthy. Starting with a good night’s sleep is best but I have to keep my day going with well balanced foods and snacks. Cookies may have cut it for me when I was 25 but not anymore. I need foods that are high in protein to keep me energized throughout the day as I burn calories.
I started with the Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast P3 #PortableProtein Pack and it was really good. I thought after eating the 2 ounces I would still be hungry but that wasn’t the case. Since the protein pack is full of high quality protein it filled me up and kept me feeling full and fueled longer than the typical snacks I tend to eat. This came in handy for that 4 o’clock hour when my body wants to call it a day. I also like that the P3 Portable Protein Packs are only $1. It’s not easy to eat healthy on the go on the cheap. The portability of the P3 packs is a great feature. I can through these in my cooler without any prep and I don’t need any utensils. These allow me to keep working because I typically don’t have time to stop anyway.
I am glad I was asked to do this shop because it allowed me to discover a nutritious and balanced snack that I am able to eat while on the road that I may not have discovered otherwise. I shared these with some of my fellow drivers and so far the ratings are all thumbs up.
