January and February are times when we all re-focus on healthy eating and exercise. Rather than focusing on what you can’t or shouldn’t eat, Hayley is reminding Canadians what they should be eating – and it’s really quite simple.
Here is a sneak peek at the gold medal tips from five-time Olympic gold medalist, Hayley Wickenheiser for achieving optimal performance, health, and energy to keep you on your game:
- Plan ahead
- Prioritize eating well, even when on-the-go
- Look for complete protein snacks like Maple Leaf Natural Selections PROTINIS for sustained energy
- Choose high protein foods at every meal
With snacks accounting for 25 per cent of our daily caloric intake and 71 per cent Canadians seeking healthier snack options, Hayley’s tips for snacking smart will set the gold standard for the New Year – plus, they are sustainable throughout the whole year.
Hayley’s tips are great indeed. Since time is sometimes a factor, I decided to try Maple Leaf Natual Selections PROTINIS for myself. What I discovered was a yummy snack that is both healthy and convenient. More healthy grab-and-go snacks are what we need. Did you know that after eating protein-rich foods, you may even feel fuller longer … both my daughter, and I did!
While the packaging is perfect for lunch bags and on-the-go snacking, my daughter liked the after-school-snacking ease. What I mean to say is, she liked the fact that she could just open the fridge, take out a PROTINIS snack and effortlessly get down to her favourite TV program before having to attack her homework!
I tried and enjoyed both of these NEW products:
Protinis Oven Roasted Chicken Souvlaki Skewers + Tzatziki Dip: Oven roasted and grilled pieces of skewered chicken marinated in authentic Greek spices, paired with a creamy lemon and dill yogurt dip.
Protinis Oven Roasted Spicy Thai Chicken Skewers + Sweet Chili Dip: Oven roasted and grilled pieces of skewered chicken marinated with lemongrass, basil and chilies, paired with a sweet and spicy chili dip.
Protein is made up of amino acids and helps your body build strong muscles and antibodies. Interesting to note: not all protein is the same …
- contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs
- examples of foods with complete protein: milk, eggs, fish, meat and poultry, like the delicious chicken bites in PROTINIS™!
That makes PROTINIS™ a great snack, giving your body the complete protein it needs. Since our bodies cannot make essential amino acids, we need to get them from our food in order to sustain our muscles and tissues, as well as promote overall growth.
PROTINIS are available in Chicken Souvlaki, Spicy Thai Chicken, and Tandoori Chicken. Each package has only 70-90 calories!
