My friend Steve, who is roughly 5yrs my senior, told me once that I should really commit myself to hitting my 30's running. You see, he had five years of wisdom on me and could probably give a decent testimonial about the truth in that statement.
Well, I'm not going to make big announcements about when exactly he told me this or how old I am now, but it's advice I think about more than once a year and especially around New Year's Eve, if only because my Birthday actually hits around that time as well.
Rather than making a resolution to utilize my gym membership a little more every year, a resolution that never seems to stick-- I've dedicated myself to walking as much as I can and eating mindfully.
When Lolë, a fantastic active wear company based in Canada, invited a handful of people to indulge in a little winter pick-me-up spray tan, and a chat with Willow Jaroush of C&J Nutrition, I was all over it. Clothes= Good. Food= Good. (BTW... I passed on the spray tan.)
|Some snack suggestions from C&J Nutrition at Lolë preview.|
Here are a few delicious and healthy snack recipes courtesy of C&J Nutrition via Lolë:
Banana Smoosh: Slice a banana and press into chia seeds. The chia seeds add a pleasing crunch and supply Omega-3 fatty acids which are great for your skin.
Lentil Tomato Quinoa Salad: Toss 1/4 cup of quinoa with 1/4 cup of lentils a handful of halved grape tomatoes, a dash of olive oil and a dash of balsamic vinegar. The locopene rich tomatoes are full of anti-oxidants, and the protein the quinoa and lentils will keep you feeling satiated and help reign in your appetite.
