Whether you’re in corporate America, a busy mom, a full time student (who also works full time), a budding entrepreneur or a combination of all the above, we’re just going to assume we have one thing in common–we’re busy! Multitasking is our super power and being the boss is our favorite quality. Unfortunately, while we may be running things in both the office and in our households, the real question is: are we running things when it comes to our health?
We know that being the fittest and fiercest version of yourself was on your 2015 vision board, so we wanted to drop by during both National Nutrition Month and Women’s History Month and say March this way beauties and challenge you to a month of Fit Girl fast food.
We partnered with PackIt (the RADdest freezable lunch bag that keeps food cool for up to 10 hours) and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze (the Queen of milk alternatives) and we will be checking in with you every Tuesday for the next four weeks (starting this Tuesday March 24th). During these check-ins, we’ll be showing you how packing a healthy smoothie for breakfast and a fabulous lunch can be not only nutritious, but delicious.
We will post our healthy grub for the week right here on HelloBeautiful, on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Then all you have to do to win the prize pack is:
1. Try one of the meal preps that we post
2. Snap a picture and post it to your social media
3. Tag your post with the #HealthyBeauties hashtag, @HelloBeautiful
4. Drop the link to your contest Instagram/Twitter entry in the form below and fill out the rest, and…
You’re automatically entered in a chance to win both a PackI Freezable Uptown Lunch Bag and a sample of four different Blue Diamond Almond Breeze milks!
Here’s the recipes we challenge you to make for lunch this week!
Lunch On Fleek: FitGirl Avocado Toast
Loaded with fiber, packed with more potassium than bananas and a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, avocados are a great lunch option. I can’t stop eating avocado toast this year, so I wanted to share a light and tasty version that you can pack and stack right at work.
FitGirl Avocado Toast
2 crispbreads (I like Wasa)
1/2 avocado thinly sliced
1/3 cup of roasted cherry tomatoes (just split in half, drizzle with olive oil, a bit salt & pepper and bake at 475 for 20 minutes the night before)
1 boiled egg
This is so easy to prep that you can make it with your eyes closed. I boil all five eggs for the week in my KRUPS Egg Cooker – perfection in 6 minutes. Cut the avocados in half the morning of, don’t worry the other half won’t go back thanks to the genius behind Food Huggers – the cutest little reusable food savers you ever did see. They have one that fits this super fruit perfectly by the way. Then, since the roasted cherry tomatoes have been prepped beforehand too, all you have to do at lunch time is load those crispbreads up and eat up.
RAD Smoothie: Orange Citrus Cooler
Remember Orange Julius in the mall, or an Orange Creamsicle as a kid? Well this healthy version is their love child. Packed with vitamin C and protein this time around. Get ready for a party to start in your mouth ladies!
1 large naval orange sliced (freeze the night before so your smoothie is nice and thick)
4 oz plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1 tsp of agave or honey
Blend all the above until smooth. Orange you glad you tried this smoothie!
