Healthcare Workers: Take A Note from Snickers; You’re Not You When You’re Hungry

by Nursetopia on February 9, 2016

The Snickers “you’re not you when you’re hungry” commercials crack me up. Because it’s true! We all tend to turn into different people when we reach that beyond-hungry point.

Maybe that’s partly why so many people working in healthcare are a little perturbed. We’re hungry, and the bag of chips stuffed in a pocket to inhale at any given moment just isn’t cutting it.

Nurse RatchedTake a break, People. You’re not you when you’re hungry. And while Snickers are great as an occasional treat, it may not be the best choice to fuel your life-saving skills throughout the 8 or 12-hour shift. Grab some protein and a complex carbohydrate.

What’s your go-to shift meal and snacks?

peanut butter and whole grain crackers or plain Greek yogurt with fruit of my choice added. (I detest the sugary, presweetened yogurts!)
