Who says you can’t eat healthy while on the go? Lipton Pure Leaf Tea and a healthy grab and go Fresh Fruit Salad make it easy to eat healthy and frugal while on the run!
So, do you wanna know a secret? A big fat juicy secret that’s sinfully delicious?
I love cute little mason jars.
Oh you wanted to know the sinfully delicious secret? Ah, well ok. I guess I can share it with you. You can eat healthy while on the run. And you can do it without breaking your wallet. Keeping your fridge stocked with Lipton Pure Leaf Unsweetened Tea and pre-made fruit salads make for one darn easy grab and go snacking adventure.
Just make your fruit salads, put them into cute little mason jars, cover with the cute little mason jar lids and put them in your fridge. And to make it even easier on you, just plop ’em on the shelf next to your Pure Leaf Tea. Then you don’t have to dig past mystery refrigerator items to find the goods.
I ain’t gonna lie. When I’m at work, I like to snack. I think it’s what you’d call snacking out of boredom. I get bored. I snack. If I don’t bring a snack to work with me, I end up in the snack box. You know what I’m talking about, the old school vending machine. The cardboard box that’s filled with tempting snacks like cookies and potato chips and candy bars. The stuff that makes snacking out of boredom turn into snacking on the pounds. Now my philosophy is all about moderation but if you suffer from snacking from boredom like I do, then moderation ain’t gonna happen if you hit that snack box everyday.
So make fruit salads and buy some Lipton Pure Leaf tea. Take them to work with you. End your relationship with the evil snack box. Turn snacking on the pounds into snacking on the healthy.
Fresh Fruit Salad and Lipton Pure Leaf Tea
You’re probably thinking to yourself, ok, ok, I get this eat healthy on the run thing but how does the eat healthy on a budget thing work? Simple. Buy fruits and veggies when they’re on sale. Or fruits and veggies that are always cheap. Bananas run about .69 per pound at my grocery store. That’s pretty darn cheap, if you ask me. And a banana is probably the easiest darn fruit you can eat. Just grab, peel and eat. Since strawberries are in season, they are on sale 2 big packages for $5.00. You can always buy in bulk and freeze for later. Or you can buy frozen fruits and use those to. I prefer fresh but I will use frozen in baked goods and smoothies.
OH, and quit buying that soda. Soda is bad for you. Even diet soda. It has tons of nasty stuff in it. But ok, I ain’t gonna lie – I enjoy a diet rootbeer or a diet cola on occasion but on a daily basis, it’s water, coffee or unsweet tea. Lipton Pure Leaf makes it easy for me to take an unsweet tea to work. I just grab a bottle from my fridge and put it in my lunch box. Going shopping but need caffeine? I just grab a Lipton Pure Leaf from my fridge and take it along for the ride.
