As I have mentioned a few times before, I am trying out for an NFL cheerleading squad this spring. Being a cheerleader in the NFL means being physically fit and an all-around healthy person. Try outs are a great motivator to get and stay in-shape and develop healthy eating habits.
As a side note, many, if not all, NFL cheerleading squads also pride themselves on being ambassadors to their community. This aspect of these organizations is one of the many reason why I want to be involved and represent my city with pride.
Let's get to it! For the first Fitness Friday edition, I would like to share my recent finds for snacks at work. For me, it's so important to eat every 3 hours because if I don't, I will get hungry, and I tend to make not-so-good food decisions when I am hungry. Also, vending machines are staples at many workplaces, and they usually don't have good options for snacks. To make good food decisions, it's important to have healthy options on hand, making it a no brainer when it is snack-time!
My work snacks include:
- Tuna Pouches with Yellow Mustard: Each pouch only has 70 calories, and they were on sale at my local grocery store for a $1 each, a win-win in my book!
- Hormel Herb Ox SODIUM FREE Bouillon: Too much sodium = too much bloat, which = no good! There are only 10 calories in each packet and each packet only needs 1 cup of hot water. Easy and yummy!
- Eggland's Best Hard Cooked Peeled Eggs: I love having hardboiled eggs as snacks, but they are smelly to cook and are a pain to peel, so these are perfect for me.
- Whole Natural Almonds: Grab a small handful for a quick, filling, and nutritious snack.
