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.
Introducing the highest quality, healthy drink powders
Invincible Empowdered Beauté Brainiac
Each LYNQ product is Non-GMO, Gluten free and Soy free and Nut free.
“These are the cleanest powdered drinks on the market. They’re packed with organic whole food ingredients and all of your daily vitamins. Finally a drink that actually gives you energy and fuels your mind. What more could you ask for from a Fit Snack?”
-Anita Muniz, Fit Snack | Nutritionist & Personal Trainer
When searching for a healthy veggie based drink powder it is a challenge to find one without additives and preservatives. Even powdered mixed greens you find at the grocery store are often filled with ingredients we don’t recognize and junk we really do not need. Here’s one for ya! Just because it says green, does not mean it’s clean.Let that be your rule of thumb. Ingredients tell all, that’s why we knew when we found LYNQ they are the best drink powder we can put in your Fit Snack box.
In just one packet of Empowdered you get:
- Nutrients from 12 organic fruits and vegetables

Imagine waking up every morning and going to work on the river in the Grand Canyon. Now this is a beautiful place, you know, where you work.

The possibilities are endless, but at the end of everyday, you’re probably just thinking…well that you’re really hungry. What better food to fuel your adventure than local, fresh food? That is exactly how Huppy Bar was born.
Huppy Bar is the place where snack meets home-grown, locally sourced ingredients. After a long day on the river or hiking or biking a trail, a fresh snack is key. That was the goal of Lindsay “Huppy” Hupp when she first began making Huppy Bar it was just a delicious snack she created for her personal adventures. As a river guide, her friends on the river quickly fell in love and what was once her secret stash was now a well known staple among friends. Huppy Bar was inspired much like any adventure is. A beautiful place, people who inspire you to do great things and a determination to make try something epic.
Eventually Huppy Bar gained the attention of the Executive Director of the Arizona Trail Association. It was then that it became the official bar of the Arizona Trail. The flavor AZT Wild Mesquite captures the essence of the AZ trail in every bite.

In the words of our Founder, “This bar is as extraordinary as the person and the story behind it.” – Rose Muniz. Let us just start by saying it’s not everyday we discover a snack that is the official snack of a beautiful trail. In fact, Huppy Bar is the first. As for the flavors they speak for themselves. Prepare for your mouth to start watering and a deep-rooted craving for adventure and a snack.

Chocolate Java – Chocolate and coffee? Yes, please! Booming with antioxidants and rich flavors of locally roasted coffee, 100% cacao chocolate and the nutrient dense Huppybar core, this bar will surely give you the energy you need NOW and later.

Here’s some fun flat tummy facts before we get to the snacks:
- Battle the bloat. Drink water for 3 days straight and no other liquids. Focus on foods or snacks with 5-7 ingredients that you recognize.
- Say No to Sugar & Say Hello to a tighter tummy! Avoid added sugar and replace high sugar fruits with low sugar options. Kiwi, apples and pomegranates.
- Eat Lean. Be Lean. Focus on lean fats, avocado, nut butters, seeds (especially pumpkin seeds, not all seeds are equal). Get the most bang for your buck and buy nutritious foods that help you help yourself.
What you eat is 80% of the focus, the other 20% should be on the exercises you do. Our June Fit Snack box has your Personal Trainer created lean body workout and includes tips.
It’s not about a flat tummy at the end of the day. It’s about a healthy body and mind. Your stomach is the core of your body. Stronger stomach muscles can help end back pain and give you better overall balance. When you practice physical balance you are also balancing your mind because well, they’re connected. You want a strong body and strong mind. This will prepare you not just for a day at the beach, but a lifetime of feeling your best. Why not? Aim high. Snack healthy.

Busy. It’s a word we use more than we probably realize. We think about how “busy” our lives are and we often tell people how “busy” we are – even on our not so busy days. In a typical day we take a break from work and grab a warm cup of caffeinated coffee or tea. Caffeine, the reminder that we need to hurry and get moving. At Fit Snack, we believe summer is a time to slow down and really look at your lifestyle. Take a few minutes to enjoy not just a warm drink, but a moment of peace. This month we have found a gourmet, healthy and convenient option you will want to slow down and sip on. You can feel good knowing it has only 15 calories, is Gluten free, Non-GMO, Kosher and Vegan. Introducing the Art of Broth.
Make life beautiful, not busy. Experience Gourmet Sipping Broth.
Think of a time you sat with a hot and savory beverage, took a deep breathe in, exhaling as you relaxed and settled into the moment. Sitting in solitude, no phone, no distractions only focusing on the warmth of the cup against your hands. Busy can take the beauty out of life, but a Sipping Broth can bring it right back. In a busy world it’s not always easy to slow down, but sipping on a savory broth will make you do just that.
Created by a family working in the food service industry for 50 years, creating high quality broths are more than a specialty to them, it is an art. These gourmet broths were once only accessible for executive chefs across the country. Three generations later, we are delivering them to your door step and you can fit the small package in your carry on or purse. The innovative steepable bags are designed specifically for convenience and with 2 minute preparation time you can have a beautiful cup of broth right at your fingertips.
Relax. Sip. Enjoy. It’s more than a philosophy, it’s a lifestyle.
Art of Broth | Gourmet Sipping Broth | Anytime and anywhere
Relax. Sip. Enjoy.
At Fit Snack we are the box that thinks outside of the box to deliver you motivation and fit inspiration to your doorstep. Let’s face it, a healthy lifestyle takes work. It requires balance (literally and figuratively) finesse and work. At times so much work that we forget how to relax, how to breathe and how to slow down.
Art of Broth is in our June Fit Snack box and it is your reminder to slow down this month, have a seat somewhere beautiful and sip on some gourmet goodness.
