Personally I’ve been struggling with my health. I’ve been in and out of the gym for years. You know on and off of that wagon. I know some of you have been right there with me. But I really have to remind myself that it’s all about my diet. What I am putting in my body. My mother recently took ill and it got me thinking — I have to change things, and now!
My issue is that I am always on the go (or on the road). From work, to meeting a client, to photo shoots — I barely cook. Well I never cook. Which leaves room for loads of horrible eating habits.
So, with the help of GE Freshpedition, I got to thinkin’ — what fresh foods can I throw in my purse?
PURSE FRIENDLY ON-THE-GO
Fruits & Veggies– Apple, oranges, and plums are easy fruits to stuff in your purse. If you are like me that you have a huge bag filled with bills, receipts, and makeup. Slide some of those bills over and insert a piece of fruit. You know I stay in Panera and I always ask for an extra apple. For a bonus try packing a small container of carrots and broccoli.
Nuts & Seeds – I’m skipping the flavored sunflower seeds and grabbing me a bag of lightly salted almonds. Nuts and seeds contain essential fatty acids and unsaturated fats that your body needs. IDK why .. it just does, LOL. I’ve also found that I can eat a handful (1 cup) of nuts to aid my snack attacks.
Homemade Bread– When I do finally get back to cooking and baking I will pull out my grannies old recipe book and get back to the basics. My boyfriend will be delighted I’m sure. Banana bread is one of the easiest snacks to bake and tastes super delish. A slice of the bread will fit easily in your purse in a zip lock bag. Don’t worry if it gets smooshed, it’s tastes better that way.
Anything at the farmer’s market – Most major cities have great farmer’s market. Be sure to walk the entire market, take mental notes, and then shop things that won’t ruin your Prada bag.
Remember when eating fresh drown everything in water. It’s keeps the skin tight, LOL. And pack your items in an airtight container to keep them fresh. Wanna know more about the GE Freshpedition. Check out this video and the sweepstakes info below.
