Food is the fuel of life, without which we would not survive. Healthy food is the high octane boost that we crave to thrive. The more fortifying your nutritional intake is, the more energy outcome you can achieve, and the greater your life will become. Preparing your own healthy meals and depending less on prepackaged frozen dinners, and restaurant staples is key to making sure that your nutritional health is on track. Without a game plan, success is unlikely in any arena, and is next to impossible when it come to your health. Nutrition makes up a full eighty percent of your overall fitness package. Consider that the next time you think about gorging on your favorite calorie loaded meal at your favorite restaurant, just because you didn’t miss a day at the gym this week.
Since most people work outside of their homes, and those who do work from home tend to not stay indoors all day long, lunch coolers are helpful for making sure that your healthy diet does not fall apart when you step outside of your house. Count on quality lunch coolers, like the ones made by Isolator Fitness, to accompany you on all of your daily excursions so that you can remain well fed, instead of risking your progress by stopping for a quick meal with lower nutritional value than your self prepared food would have.
Who Needs A Lunch Cooler?
One of the “back to school” staples on every kid’s list is a new lunch cooler. Either they broke theirs, or it’s out of style, or they have outgrown the characters plastered on the front. For whatever reason, kids need new lunch bags almost every single year. The bags made by Isolator Fitness can solve that problem though, as their lunch coolers do not go out of style, and are durable enough to outlive the average child’s lunch box.
Although taking a lunch to school may be passe for many teenagers and high schoolers, there are still times when a high quality, durable lunch cooler is appreciated. Examples of times every teen wishes they had their own stylish lunch bag may includes: school field trips, away games for school sponsored sporting events, and meatloaf day in the cafeteria.
Ever heard of the freshman 15? No it is not some cool initiation into the college lifestyle, it is a serious health hazard. As young adults go off to college and (possibly for the first time ever) have to learn how to feed themselves correctly, many of them get it wrong and go crazy at the all you can eat cafeteria buffet. Rather than investing in fancy binders, and colorful folders that they’ll either never use, or ruin before the end of the first semester, get yourself a hot plate, a George Forman grill, and a lunch cooler and make your own meals to avoid the freshman 15 all together.
Police officers, EMT’s, and Firefighters are not afforded the same type of lunch time luxuries that some other professions are accustomed to. Sometimes their idea of a balanced meal is a coffee cup with a bagel and cream cheese precariously balancing atop it, sitting in the cup holder beside them as they rush off to their next emergency. People who work in the civil services are among the most likely to completely skip, or even forget about a meal, while on the clock. Lunch coolers that can be taken into the field, for hours at a time without worry about whether or not the food within will stay cold, should be in every civil service workers personal arsenal.
Besides children, blue collar workers have always been the group most likely to carry lunch coolers with them. There is something to be said about the intellect that it takes to work with your hands. This group of individuals has always understood the importance of a healthy, balanced, home cooked meal, not to mention the convenience of not having to quickly find somewhere to scarf down a burger during their thirty minute meal break.
Professionals are often times people who spend the majority of their days at a desk, which meals that their physical activity level is seriously disadvantaged. The best way to combat the fitness failure of desk work is to combat it from the inside out with a healthy and balanced diet. Bringing meals to work in lunch coolers is a great way for professionals to avoid the midday crash that comes from a drop in your blood glucose levels, following hours without food. It is also a stellar way to keep the temptations of lunch at your favorite local cafe, at bay.
Many hospital workers, work an exorbitant amount of hours in a single week, meaning that they are far too reliant on coffee and energy bars to get them through the average day than they should be, unless of course they are packing their own meals and taking them along to the hospital with them. This is the best case scenario and should be done on a regular basis to promote healthy living, not only in their own lives but in the lives of their fellow co-workers and patients. Hospital staff who take lunch coolers to work make for more focused, concentrated, and productive workers.
Anyone who has any type of food allergy knows and understands just how difficult trying to find a decent meal away from home, that isn’t potentially dangerous can be. Even if you can find a restaurant that works within the parameters of your allergy to provide you with safe options, there is no actual guarantee that the food which you are presented with has not previously come into contact with your allergen, unless you prepare the food yourself. Bringing home cooked meals everywhere you go may have been a pain in the past but thanks to the 16+ hour cooling capacity of Isolator Fitnesses lunch coolers it is easier, and more convenient than ever before.
Vegetarians, Vegans, Diabetics, and even those eating a ketogenic diet understand the difficulties of finding food that fits into their specialty diet while they are out and about running errands or spending time with friends, which is why being able to pack their own diet appropriate meals to take along with them in lunch coolers, is so important. Taking meals along, means that they can stand to be away from their own kitchen for longer than a few hours at a time, without wondering where their next meal is going to come from, and if it’s going to stand up to their strict dietary restrictions.
