A runner will burn approximately 2,700 calories in a marathon. A hummingbird will burn over 14,000 covering the same distance. The runner will take about 35,000 strides. The hummingbird, at 200 wing beats per second, will have to stop and refuel a number of times.
Each has different dietary needs. Diets differ, as do quantities each consumes. Those who have purchased pre-packaged “year’s supply” units for set and forget convenience may not only find the unit’s quantity insufficient, but the selection of foods will probably not be to everyone’s liking.
Take a good look at storing what you eat, and measuring quantities you consume over time. Determine how much your family needs for a 1, 2, or more year’s supply. Pay particular attention to needs items for your special needs family members. Store what you eat, and eat what you store.
Best Father’s Day gift I ever got was a case of Hershey’s chocolate chips for “our storage.” Problem: that’s only enough to run 3 marathons. I’ll need more.
