Nutrition On The Go for Black Friday and Beyond
Black Friday. These two words can mean different things to each individual. To some, it doesn’t mean a thing. It’s just another Friday. For others, it means the most important shopping day of the year. For all of the men and women who participate, it’s non-stop hustle and bustle for the entire da, going from one store to the next, always at a brisk pace. Originally, Black Friday deals started around 5:00 a.m., but today it’s not unusual to see stores open their doors much earlier. If you plan on getting up and taking on the Black Friday bustle, make sure that you’re fully equipped to stay energized throughout the day. Here are some tips for nutrition on the go:
It might not seem like it, but a full day of shopping also counts as exercise! Walking, or running, through stores on Black Friday means that you’re getting your heart rate up and burning calories. Stay hydrated by keeping a water bottle close by.
Whole Fruit and Vegetables
If you don’t want to stop to eat breakfast or lunch while out shopping, pack some light snacks to keep you going. Apples and bananas can fit easily into a bag and don’t make a mess, plus they are healthy alternatives to other snacks. You can also cut up and pack raw veggies such as broccoli, celery, or carrots along with your favorite dip. Eating whole fruits and vegetables throughout the day are beneficial to a balanced diet and obtaining key nutrients.
Juice Plus+ Capsules
If you don’t want to carry around packed fruits and vegetables in your bag all day while trying to shop, a great alternative is Juice Plus+ capsules. These capsules and chewables contain whole food nutrition that you would receive from whole fruits and vegetables but in a more convenient form. Juice Plus+ provides the benefits of nutrition from 30 fruits, vegetables, and grains and can help to fill the gap in your diet during your busiest times.
