How Nice! Treats Keeps Me Balanced
I was asked to participate in the #SimplyNice campaign, sponsored by Walgreens. Although I have been compensated all opinions are my own.
When I think of fitness, I think of an overall healthy lifestyle. To me, that means balance, eating healthy plus working out consistently. If I’m being honest, I’ve been struggling with the eating part. Getting back into a routine is HARD after you slip-up for a bit. But I got the sudden urge to stop playing games and do what needs to be done. The biggest push? When I found out I'd be going to a major industry awards show. Yes! Isn’t always a big event that does this? Let’s not get into the why let’s get right to how I kept my diet balanced while treating myself too.
You might remember the last time I collaborate with Nice! at Walgreens, so I’m happy to expand further on their affordable, healthy, indulge-worthy snacks. The informative nutritional packaging found at the top of every package makes it easier to know exactly what you’re getting. And don’t forget, taste is not sacrificed with these healthy and organic ingredients.
If you’re like me, I hate anything too restrictive. Sugar is the devil but like, I still need it ya know? To satisfy my sweet tooth I snacked on Nice! Honey Roasted Cashews. I love honey roasted nuts! To not overdo it, I simply made sure to not have more than a serving. Another option is to purchase the Omega 3 Blend. I love this mix because of the cranberries which gives a handful the right amount of sweetness.
And how could I forget one of my faves, the Coconut Seasoned cashew halves! I like to buy the mini bag and toss it in my purse, that is of course if my boyfriend doesn’t get to it first. He’s obsessed with these! Nuts are a great snack but in moderation.
Who’s not a guacamole lover right? My guac is the best if I do say so myself! Ahem, and the Nice! Tri-Color Tortilla chips go perfectly. These chips have a bit of a kick to them, I think it’s the red one, and that spiciness balances out all the yummy flavors in the guac. I also love that these chips are thick, sturdy, so there are a lot of whole pieces. That’s important to me LOL. And with the tri-color, you get a bit of everything.
I’ve been on super strict diets before when preparing for roles and they’re not the healthiest thing to do. While I wanted to look my absolute best on the red carpet, I also knew I needed some room to still indulge every so often without feeling guilty about it. The decision to pop into my local Walgreens and pick up a few Nice! products for snacking was a no-brainer; the price is right, it contains quality ingredients, and everything is great tasting. Simple. Honest. Delicious. Just how I like it.
