Steal These Ideas

By Active Alyssa \ February 18 2016

Throughout my years, I have learned how important it is to have a good relationship and be mindful with the food that you feed your body. I also know how difficult it is to maintain a healthy and balanced diet while traveling. Last weekend all of my girlfriends were in town for "SHEEKEND" and I tried my best to hook them up with some good grub. Steal these ideas from me to keep your body happily fueled on your next ski vacay:

Think ahead and choose which breakfast items and snacks to provide, make a grocery list, then stock the kitchen with nutrient packed energy foods. Apples, carrots, oranges, bananas, berries, seeds, peppers, all delicious whole foods and easy to eat. Making your own cheese and cracker platter or charcuterie board is a great snack to put together for guests.

Quick, Grab and Go

On a ski trip, you want to maximize your mountain time, so a quick breakfast and snack break is a must. Planning a breakfast ahead of time took less time in the morning and created less mess. Preparing these Egg Muffin Omelets a day or two in advance is an awesome egg breakfast to heat up then take down quick! Eggs, spinach, peppers, salt, and pepper is all you need to bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Heat up in the morning with some cheese, add avocado for heart healthy fat, and you're good to go!

Another breakfast that is fast and powerful is a Yogurt Parfait. My favorite yogurt to use is Fage Greek Yogurt, due to it's high protein and low sugar content. Adding strawberries, black berries, and blueberries, then letting your guests add their own granola or Trek Mix of sunflower seeds, pepitas, cashews, almonds, and raisons for personal taste.

Colorful, Whole And Nutritious Snacks

Eating a rainbow of colorful foods will nourish your body with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Red bell peppers are high in vitamin C and fiber, good for improving digestion, lowering cholesterol, and increasing immunity. Carrots are high in vitamin A and beta carotene, good for skin. Yellow peppers are also high in vitamin A, C, and carotenoids which help protect from heart disease. Broccoli is high in calcium and iron which is good for teeth, bones, and muscles. Cauliflower is full of antioxidants to increase immunity. All of this colorful and powerful foods taste great dipped in hummus, which provides protein, more essential vitamins and minerals, and the heart-healthy, unsaturated fat.
