In Preparation for the Holidays, Power Up Your Week with Nature’s Sweetener!

FIRESTONE, Colorado, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — (Spanish) Adults and children are already gearing up for the flurry of fast approaching holiday activities. The one thing that everyone can agree on that is absolutely essential to keep moving for the season is food and lots of energy. But instead of surrendering to the holiday temptations that are beginning to pop-up everywhere, including the workplace, there are all-natural food alternatives that can be energizing and guilt-free. For this reason, in partnership with acclaimed registered dietitian nutritionist and blogger Christy Wilson, the National Honey Board (NHB) is introducing simple, seasonal meals and snack bites that can be powered-up with nature’s natural energizer – honey. The campaign incorporates a combination of wholesome, energizing food choices with honey that they can be served this fall for well-balanced and easy-to-pack breakfasts, lunch or even as healthy snacks on-the-go, creating lots of energy to get through the holidays ahead.

 “As a source of carbohydrates necessary to maintain energy, honey provides the body with essential fuel needed during times when people are really active,” explained Wilson. “Especially during the holidays, consumers are always grabbing quick meals to keep themselves energized while running around from place to place. As part of a wholesome sit-down meal or as a sweet reward, honey is an easy, all-natural energy source that all family members age one and up can turn to for the energy needed to get through their busy fall schedules and all the festivities ahead.”

Wilson, an avid cook, health advocate and named one of Latina Magazine’s Top 10 Latina Health and Fitness Bloggers in 2013, created an array of balanced pre-holiday palate-pleasing breakfast bites, energizing snacks and light meal options, combining all-natural honey with fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and other healthy ingredients to generate unbeatable flavor profiles that provide power-packed food for children and adults alike. These recipes are also portable, easily packed to-go in lunch boxes for healthy eating throughout the week at school or in the workplace or even for those fall hikes or bike rides.

The entire family can enjoy eating more balanced meals throughout the day without resorting to consuming processed sweeteners and foods, especially during this time of year when holiday foods and treats are everywhere. Among Wilson’s scrumptious power-packed food items featured on www.mielpura.org that will help families get powered up and energized this season are: (Click Here for Recipes)
