We here at Oliver’s are firm believers in choices, just in case you haven’t noticed. We think you should be able to have your cake and eat it, too. That’s why this week, we’re highlighting some of our favorite nutritional wonders that have been used by athletes, gym-goers, and fitness-buffs. No longer are these items an industry secret! Throw these items in your purse, backpack, briefcase or gym bag for nutrition on the run. (P.S., we suggest leaving the ice cream in the freezer…)
In our Weekly In-Store and Press Democrat ads, you’ll see hand-picked items that are high in protein (but low in price!) to help you incorporate healthy eating into your busy life. These items are great on-the-go and packed with optimal nutrients to fuel your body and help add some of the nutritional building blocks that every “body” needs to strive.
HAVE YOUR CAKE & EAT IT TOO…
Feeling that sweet tooth, but can’t splurge on the calories? No problem! Try Lenny & Larry’s Complete Protein Cookies for a sweet treat packed with protein. For a frozen delight, try the wonderfully delicious Halo Top Low Calorie & High Protein Ice Cream, available in tons of flavors! For bonus protein, mash some cookie into your ice cream. Game. Changer. (You’re welcome).
H20 & GO
Water is necessary for a healthy functioning body and mind, so be sure to drink lots of it! “Does flavored water count?” Sure, but be careful of hidden artificial sweeteners and high levels of sodium. For a flavorful water without all the sugar, try dropping a Nuun Hydration tablet in your Essentia water to make it more palatable!
SWEAT IT OUT. NOOMA IN.
Looking for some post-workout recovery drinks but not into all the sugar? Try one of our favorite new products: NOOMA Electrolyte Drinks! “With a couple simple ingredients, organic coconut water and sea salt, NOOMA naturally provides the electrolytes you need to stay hydrated.” Vegan, Organic, Gluten-Free, Paleo… what’s not to love?
RAISING THE BAR
Most times, protein bars aren’t packed with protein. Check the label and you’ll find more grams of sugar than actual protein. What a rip-off! RX bars are an exception. They list all of the ingredients on the front of their label. No free rides, no fillers, no B.S. Just good, clean food with 100% natural flavors. These are tasty, healthy bars to keep in your car, desk, backpack, or purse to snack while on the go!
