On-The-Go Smart Snack Choices - Engineer Mommy /* ]]> */

This post was sponsored by Weight Watchers as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Like many other women, I have a pair of skinny jeans in the back of my closet. It’s a pair that used to fit pretty well, but it’s way too tight to wear nowadays. However, I won’t throw those jeans away. I know that with some basic lifestyle changes, I will fit into those jeans again! Today, I will share with you some tips on leading a healthy lifestyle, including making smart snack choices throughout the day.

For me, a healthy lifestyle comes down to a few basic principles:
1. Balanced Meals: I try to eat well-rounded, nutritious meals that are balanced and delicious. I find that if I eat well-rounded meals throughout the day, I will be more likely to stay on track with my health goals.
2. Exercise: I am incorporating plenty of cardio into my weekly routine. Whether that’s simply 45 minutes on the treadmill or having a dance party in the living room with my daughters, I need to get my heart rate up to burn those calories every day.
3. Water: Staying well-hydrated is essential to a healthy lifestyle. In fact, I find that if I’m thirsty, I’m much more likely to reach for food. So I make sure to keep myself hydrated throughout the day by keeping a water bottle with me at all times.
4. Sleep: Studies have shown that getting adequate sleep at night is essential for a healthy metabolism. That’s why I have created a bedtime routine for myself that lets me unwind- this includes turning off electronics, taking a relaxing bath and spraying some soothing lavender water onto my pillowcase.
5. Snacks: For me, snacking in between meals is something I have keep under control. I have found that if I plan ahead and keep the right snacks on hand, it will be much easier to stay on track with my health goals. Luckily, I have some smart snack options that I keep on rotation every day of the week.

When I’m craving something sweet, I usually opt for some fruit. My favorite fruits to take with me on-the-go include a banana, an orange or some blueberries! When I’m craving something crunchy, I’ll opt for some plain popcorn. It’s delicious, crunchy and low in calories. When I’m craving something savory and satisfying, I’ll opt for some Weight Watchers Light String Cheese. Made from milk, this delicious cheese has an awesome taste you have to try to believe!

Of course, I try to stay hydrated throughout the day, so I always bring my bright pink stainless steel water bottle with me when I leave the house (I love that thing). With my cheese, a banana, an orange, and my water bottle, I’m ready to tackle any snack cravings that may come my way during the day.

  3. I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like. String cheese is a favorite and I’m definitley going to pick up some Weight Watchers light. I also have a pair of skinny jeans I need to get back in. Don’t we all? 🙂

  4. Cheese can be a good source of nutrient. It’s great that there’s some snack options that can be you the nutrients in cheese.

  5. I never had the weight watchers string cheese, but will have to try them. I like to have them once in awhile string cheese especially my son goes through them like crazy.

  6. I am a workout fanatic. I am working hard to eat right and string cheese and fruit are always on my list for healthy snacks!

  7. I think we all have a pair of skinny jeans hanging in the back of the closet or in some drawer some where. As long as you are eating healthy, getting more exercise and drinking tons of water you will get back into those jeans.

  8. I do a lot of the same things! I’ve never tried those Weight Watchers cheese sticks though. I’ll have to pick some up next time I’m at the grocery store.

  12. Yum! I like my fruit topped with plain yogurt for probiotics, and my popcorn with salt and butter – still better than grabbing a bag of chips! Smart choices!

  13. I had no idea Weight Watchers had string cheese! I usually snack nuts, berries, and fruit. Have to try the string cheese too!

  14. Great ideas! Water and sleep are things I am working on so much more. It sounds weird but life gets so busy, sometimes I am lacking in those areas of my health. These are great snack ideas and ones I almost always have on hand for my family.
