Need more energy at school? It just takes a few simple steps – and a snack – to get the energy you need. Our Nutritionist has the perfect tips to guide you to healthier habits or simply to get you back on track. This time of year life gets busier and the days get shorter. Whether it’s school, work or family it becomes easy to lose track of healthy habits we need to get dialed in for ourselves. Take a moment to really think about the time just before this busy period started up again. Exactly what were those healthy habits you were more focused on?
Here are a few things we do at Fit Snack to get refocused this time of year. It all starts with the most basic foods and snacks that are whole food based, with no added sugar and nutrient packed with fruits and veggies. Think about the 80/20 rule…every trainer you talk to (at least most of them) will tell you it’s 80/20 – 80% healthy eating and 20% staying active. That’s not just for looking your best, it’s for feeling your best. It’s important to get the fuel your body needs especially if you expect to be on your A+ game.
Here are a few tips from our Nutritionist and the perfect snack for the job.
- First, focus on whole foods.
- Eliminatefoods with ingredients you don’t recognize and added sugarsyou don’t need.
- Learn about ingredients and their health benefits-or to see if they have any.
The third point which emphasizes educating yourself on ingredients, is critical. If it looks unfamiliar it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s unhealthy. However, many unrecognizable ingredients indicate that a food is highly processed. These highly processed snacks are filled with preservatives and chemicals that do more harm than good.
Too busy to grab fresh produce to snack on or are you always on the go? No problem. We have the snack, smoothie and drink powder that will do the work for you.
We found the perfect every day snack for you. It’s full of vitamins straight from organic fruits and veggies. LYNQ drink powders. Love yourself no question (LYNQ). Finding healthy foods and snacks is an important part of self care. That’s why we included LYNQ in our Fit Snack box.
The highest quality nutrition comes from whole foods, but these foods are not always the most accessible or convenient. LYNQ just might be the missing link in your life. It’s not everyday you find a snack or drink mix that energizes your body by giving you the nutrients you need most.
