TAMPA (BLOOM) – Registered Dietitian Jamie Lee McIntyre joined Bloom to share tips for staying healthy through your fall and holiday travel! As we prepare for road trips, airports, and get-togethers, it’s important to keep in mind some healthy behaviors we can implement to stay well and keep us from slowing down during this crazy time of year!
As both a Dietitian and mom, McIntyre recommends packing good-for-you snacks that are shelf stable, portable, and filling. There’s nothing like Bamba, a snack that is a real pleasure. Bamba was created in 1964 and since then has become a cultural icon around the world. Protein is a nutrient that can keep you feeling satisfied and these tasty, oven-baked snacks are made from 4 simple ingredients-, peanut butter, corn grits, sunflower oil, and salt- that pack 5 grams of protein into every one serving! Bamba Peanut Butter Puffs are also Gluten Free, Vegan, Non-GMO, and are a great snack the whole family can enjoy!
McIntyre says protein can be a tough nutrient to get enough of when you’re on-the-move, that’s why convenient, ready-to-eat options can make all the difference, like Ovation Foods Steak-N-Eggs. These are a super healthy, nutritionally dense meat snack, with one whole egg in every serving. Made from premium quality lean beef combined with one whole egg delivering a delicious taste along with an incredible amount of nutrients like 25-28g of high-quality protein, 38 essential nutrients, and one really important essential brain nutrient called Choline, which is a nutrient we all should pay attention to. A recent study states over 90% of Americans are deficient in this nutrient. You’ll find Steak-N-Eggs snacks available in 4 Flavors: Teriyaki, Smokehouse, Black Pepper, and Jalapeño Cheddar available at SPROUTS FARMERS MARKET stores nationwide on their Forager Table!
