Are You Munching on Too Much Junk? Try These Healthy Snacks!

Is lack of time the reason you grab fast food, cookies or chips between meals? Are you influenced by the advertisements of these unhealthy snacks? Does junk food relieve the stress and anxiety. Or, if you’re like us – just love the stuff!

The Arbonne Sistas recognized that healthy snacking doesn’t have to be boring or expensive. Healthy snacks are a great way to satisfy hunger,
plus give you the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. If you have an honest desire to change your eating habits, we have a few recommendations that we are incorporating into our own diets:

Healthy Snacks

  • Arbonne Essentials – Fit Chews 
    (Ideal on-the-go snack. A bite-size treat that control cravings while keeping energy levels sustained.)

  • Greek yogurt (high in protein) with fruit, berries or light granola.
  • Unsalted whole grain crackers.
  • Hummus with raw vegetables.
  • Low sugar sorbet.
  • Steel cut oatmeal.
  • Boiled egg (cage and hormone free) with no salt.
  • Raw fruits (apple, pear, blueberries, mango, pineapple, etc.).
  • Edamame (unsalted).
  • Vegetables (carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, spinach, beets, etc.).
  • Low sodium vegetable chips.

Healthy Beverages

  • Unsweetened ice teas.
  • Herbal tea blends.
  • Green, black or white tea.
  • Water (six 8-oz. glasses per day).

And, in all things pray.

A Christmas Gift to Myself: Physical Fitness

I started my Christmas Eve morning with an intense workout with my 21 year old gym partner, Victor Carrillo. He inspires me. He keeps me feeling young. Lifting weights, spinning and swinging kettlebells. We do it all.

Age is But  a Number. Your attitude is key.

Your personality can be a factor in determining your mental state of being and contribute to your aging  process.  If you live your life continuously angry and feel hatred towards others, that will attribute to having a negative attitude, having negative thoughts and can lead to possible health issues and premature aging.

Change your attitude and your outlook towards life. 

If you strive to maintain a positive attitude  you will be less likely to show signs of aging, you will less likely to become frail and are more likely to be stronger and healthier than those that have a negative attitude.

Look at what you can bring to the world instead of focusing on your needs, your wants and your desires. Be of service and use your experience to inspire others. You have a treasure chest of wisdom to give away.

“People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within.” ~ Ramona L. Anderson.

At 55 years of age, I chose to be alive, to be vibrant and to be young at heart!
