Motivation Monday

Let’s start the week off with a new snack and work-out move to keep up healthy habits!

This Week’s Work-Out Move: oblique-twist kick. This exercise is the ultimate stress-reliever to fight the busy and tiresome Mondays. Crank up some of your favorite jams and alternate these ab-toning kicks for one-minute sessions. Stand with legs shoulder-width apart and simultaneously twist your upper body to the left as you kick with the left foot. Switch sides and repeat. Make sure to bring the knee up high and really explode with the movement. Rest for a minute in between each session or bust a move to burn a few more cals. Squeeze in three rounds before your day begins or mid-afternoon when you need a burst of energy.

Healthy Snack of the Week: mini pb & js. Grab some multi-grain crackers, a nut butter spread, and ajelly of your choice. Instead of the traditional PB crackers, mix it up with some fresh fruit jelly spreads and varied nut butters. Use almond butter with an apricot spread for a twist on the traditional. Apple butter and crunchy peanut butter crackers offer a satisfying flavor that your kids will gobble up. Experiment with different kids to see what you and your kids enjoy. Mix blackberry and raspberry spreads for a springtime flair for your regular cracker snack. Pumpkin seed butter is a nutritious alternative for kids with peanut allergies. If you are looking for on-the-go products, Justin’s Nut butter offers squeeze packs in delectable flavors including chocolate hazelnut and maple almond butter.
