Crunch Cravings and Crush Goals This Winter With Almond Snacks By Your Side
We all have goals we strive to achieve, whether it’s a simple “get through the day” type or a longer-term vision to even win a medal. Celebrity trainer Paul Vincent, who has helped stars prepare to wield lightsabers and outrun enemies in the recent redux editions of films like “Star Wars” and “Blade Runner,” is an expert on helping others live up to their full potential. So when California Almonds and Vincent pair up, it’s time to pay attention. To motivate everyone to become the best version of themselves this winter, California Almonds and Vincent have new tips and four new almond snacks that provide the protein, fiber and key nutrients needed to power through whatever the day holds—whether it’s hail, hard deadlines or ‘hanger.’
For meal prepping masters, Vincent has created an overnight Mason Jar Blueberry Parfait with Almond Milk that is perfect for busy mornings. Vincent’s Almond Trail Mix, which includes goji berries, sunflower seeds and almonds, is an easy snack to munch on when conquering a challenging to-do list or a long commute. For those who prefer a little spice to their snacks, Vincent has created the Spicy Seasoned Almonds with cayenne pepper for a nice kick. And as a twist on a classic favorite, Vincent recommends Almond Butter Toast, complete with bananas and a drizzle of honey.
“You don’t need to rearrange your entire schedule to eat healthy and stay fit,” says Vincent. “Incorporating almonds into your snacks will provide you with the protein and fiber your body needs to help you own the day in a positive way.”
Vincent also has inspirational tips to help anyone stay fit, even if the temperature dips below freezing and staying in bed seems like a better option:
- The World Is A Gym: Exercise doesn’t have to take place in a gym. Try exercises that use only body weight, like burpees and planks, at the office, at home or in the park. No weights or equipment needed!
- Pick Up The Phone: Utilize the built-in step counter found on smartphones to get a sense of the amount of steps taken daily. By measuring daily activity, it’s easier to find new routes and make easy improvements.
- Halt The Hanger: An ounce of almonds is a no-brainer snack for busy days! Almonds have the protein needed to power through jam-packed schedules, and they’re easy to pack in a purse or briefcase to keep hunger at bay between meals.
