5 Healthy Snacks to Pack for Work This Week

I’m lucky because our pantry at work is always stocked with healthy snacks like roasted edemame beans, mini trail mix packs, and Kind bars, but I still bring snacks to work sometimes.

Here are a few ideas for healthy snacks to pack for work this week!

1. Frozen Grapes: Frozen grapes are such a refreshing summer snack. Put them in the freezer overnight and enjoy them the next day!

2. Cucumber, celery, peppers, and carrots with hummus: I love hummus! This healthy snack has a serving of healthy veggies and protein.

3. Homemade dried fruit: Here is a great way to make homemade dried fruit without needing a dehydrator.

4. Mixed Berries: I like packing raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I put some in my water and have the rest as a snack.

5. Nakd Healthy Snacks: The company sent me these to review and they are great. I like taking them to work or as a snack after a hike or workout. A bit about them: “With nothing but raw fruits and nuts smooshed together, our Nākd bars contain 100% natural ingredients, meaning there are no added sugars, syrups or other stuff that shouldn’t be there. Completely wheat, dairy and gluten free, these bars are bursting with taste and have an irresistible soft and chewy texture that’s oh-so good. Perfect as a snack between meals, bundling a Nakd bar in lunchboxes or bags is a great way to stay fuelled the healthy way.”

What healthy snacks do you bring to work? I’m always looking for new suggestions!

Beauty Review: Sun Protection for Summer

I love spending as much time outdoors as possible. I grew up horseback riding and have grown up spending time outside. I love hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, and laying by the pool or beach. I have always been really careful about sun protection. Getting a nice tan is not nearly as important as protecting myself from harmful UV rays and, possibly, skin cancer.

 

Beauty Review: Sun Protection

Enza Essentials sent me Nutri-Gel and the Advanced Protection SPF 30.

Advanced Protection SPF 30:

Beauty Review: Sun Protection
Details: Sunblock Shields Skin From Harmful Rays. Your first line of defense against the UVA and UVB rays, this lightweight zinc oxide SPF 30 formula contains octyl methoxycinnamate, an organic sunblock that naturally protects your skin. Rich emollients and vitamins A, C and E nourish and moisturize your dry skin without leaving behind an oily, acne-causing build up.
My Review: I am always worried that sunscreen will make me breakout. Luckily, this sunscreen didn’t! I know I’ll keep it with me all summer.

Nutri-Gel:

Beauty Review: Sun Protection
Details: Serious Moisture Therapy. Rough elbows, flakey knees and scaly skin have met their match. Loaded with hydrating aloe vera, chamomile and antioxidant-rich vitamins, Enza’s NutriGel is a refreshing wave of moisture in a bottle. This versatile formula can be used to alleviate rosacea symptoms, massage out bruising, relieve minor irritations and soothe skin after laser treatments.
My Review: Confession: I got a bit burnt when I was in Montauk. I always use sunscreen but I often miss a spot or two. I used Nutri-Gel on my burn and it helped! I have a feeling I’ll also use this in the winter if I get very dry skin.
